Espresso – at the heart of every great coffee at Stray’s…
We’ve been making coffee since 2003. Our blend has been refined and tweaked over that time, but we’ve always used a blend of four beans.
But that’s just the start. Great beans don’t always equate to great coffee. It’s the passion and skill of the barista, that ultimately defines the results.
So, after an extraction time of 27 seconds, your espresso is ready. It’s what our baristas do with it, that makes Stray’s coffee the best in town. It’s not a complicated process, but it is exact. That’s why we’re still making more coffees in Newark than anyone else!
Our coffee menu is based on the way we believe your coffee is best. Our lattes are milky with only a little foam, our cappuccinos are frothy, verging on being ‘dry’ and are also strong.
That said, if you want to change the way we make your coffee, just let us know. More foam, extra espresso, hotter – whatever you need, let us know when you order. As long as it’s legal, we’ll do it!

No less delicious than our fancy coffees, our straight coffees are for the purists among you…
ESPRESSO – £1.75/£2.10 // short with an intense flavour, this is the purest way to drink coffee
ICED LATTE – £2.95 // First, we pour fresh milk over ice. We then drizzle a shot of espresso into that and serve in a frozen glass – clean and intense, yet refreshing.
AMERICANO – £2.30 (1 shot) /£2.60 (2 shots) /£2.90 (3 shots!) // We drizzle espresso over freshly drawn hot water. More intense that filter coffee. Whichever size you choose, the flavour is the same, so do you want 1, 2 or 3 shots of espresso in your system?!
FILTER COFFEE – £1.95/£2.30/£2.60 // The unsung hero of the coffee world, our filter uses the same blend of beans as in our espresso, just ground more coarsely and slowly filtered through unbleached paper. The result is a clean but strong coffee – perfect with cream or straight black.
And don’t worry, we brew our filter coffee straight into a flask – so it keeps fresh. We’ve never understood why some establishments use a stove to burn their filter coffee?
