An espresso roast is designed to bring out the unique flavours of the beans when brewed using an espresso machine or stovetop. Espresso machines produce a syrupy, concentrated, ‘stronger’ tasting coffee which can be drunk on its own, with hot water or with hot milk to create a flat white, cappuccino or latte.
A filter roast is created for brewing methods such as cafetiere, AeroPress and pourover methods like a V60 or percolator. Filter roasts are typically roasted lighter to reveal the more subtle flavours in the coffee.
If you’re brewing using an espresso machine, select an espresso roast and we’ll send you coffees that are roasted to work best in an espresso machine.
If you use a filter method, you can be flexible. A filter roast will reveal subtler, sweeter flavours.
However, taste is subjective. So, if you like more body and a darker flavour go for ‘espresso’ roast. If you use a filter method or prefer a lighter taste then select ‘filter’.
As befitting carefully sourced speciality-grade coffee, the beans are delivered to you within days of being roasted. That’s one of the ways we can guarantee the optimum coffee drinking experience.
We figure that, like us, you’d prefer to receive freshly roasted high-quality speciality coffee rather than beans that have been sitting in a warehouse for months.
The Indy Coffee Box brings together some of the world’s best speciality coffees which are expertly roasted in the UK and Ireland by leading roasters to bring out the unique and subtle flavours of each bean.
Before roasting green beans, the roaster will consider how the coffee will be brewed and roast them so that the drinker experiences the full array of delightful flavours and aromas.

Bought a one-off box initially and became avid Indie Coffee converts, signing up for a monthly subscription. Great to be able to try different beans each month and added bonus of supporting independent roasters. Well put together, coffee is deliciously fresh (we didn’t realise how much that affects flavour, we do now!) and a lovely treat each month. Keep up the good work and thanks for sole-handedly upping our coffee game!
I love my coffee box. It is great, particularly to get 4 bags of coffee automatically delivered every month. The coffee is always delicious and I love the fact I am able to try beans from different countries and roasters around the UK. I really recommend this box for people who want to get into drinking delicious coffee in their own home.
A brilliant way to try lots of great coffees. Coffees from all over the country. A real treat. Brew, the magazine, is educational and interesting. I know a lot more about the coffee process now!
Really enjoying the coffee box. All the coffees have been delicious and I have enjoyed being able to try coffees from different independent roasteries.
