When we opened our first shop in London in 1983 we sold about 12 cups of coffee a day. Since then we’ve come a long way, investing in the very best coffee machines, trained hundreds of Baristas to the highest standard and put sustainable farming practices in place.
It all begins with the best hand-picked beans. Pret’s espresso is a complex blend of organic beans from Peru, Honduras, Sumatra and Ethiopia. Each origin provides a unique and crucial note to the distinctive Pret flavour – rich and intense with dark chocolate and bittersweet caramel tones. Sustainable farming practices ensure our farmers protect the land they farm and provide us with fresh and delicious coffee harvests, year after year.
All our coffee is organic. So is our tea and all our milk and milk alternatives. Organic is not a brand - it’s a way of farming. Our milk comes from cows that enjoy a natural diet, while our coffee is grown on small farms in harmony with the environment.
Coffee is at it’s very best when freshly roasted. We slow batch roast our beans, constantly monitoring the roasting process - from temperature and time to the all-important ‘first crack’! Ensuring Pret’s coffee tastes great throughout the year!
Our coffee machines are engineering wonders. But it’s our brilliantly trained Baristas that are the wizards behind our coffee. With over three months of training under their belts, they know exactly how to grind, brew and steam to create cup after cup of perfect Pret coffee. Finished with milk or alternatives, long or short, white or with sprinkles, but always organic and always with a smile.
