Espresso Vinyl & Leather Dye


Espresso coffee colored paint restores and conditions vinyl or leather furniture. It won’t peel, crack, flake, or stain clothing and is anti-UV.


Espresso is a dark chocolate color. It is similar to Mahogany, but is distinctly less red when viewed in bright sunlight.


Changing the color of bonded leather or ultraleather is strongly discouraged due to the unstable nature of these materials.

Espresso corrects fading, discoloration, stains, and minor scuffs on leather and vinyl while adding UV protection. Dilute it withClear Prep+Finish to make a glaze for use on aniline or multi-toned leather. Espresso permeates leather and vinyl, behaving more like a stain and less like a paint. Application is easy and versatile with a sponge, brush, or spray gun. It will not rub off on clothing once dried. Do not get wet until fully cured. Each bottle comes with an extra-long stir stick and gloves. Sponge not included.

  1. Excellent coverage & color 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2018

    My couches were still in great shape but the leather stain was fading - this gave them new life again!!

  2. New Old Sofa! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2017

    I can’t say enough good about your products. I looked for 3 solid weeks to try and find a new leather couch and just couldn’t stand the thought of giving up our comfortable 25 year old couch. I actually bought 3 couches and cancelled them before they were delivered. There were various reasons why they wouldn’t work for us. I felt like Goldie Locks; this one was too little, this one had bad reviews, this one would stain really easy, and none were as comfortable as our old sofa. Then, I learned of the possibility that our old couch could be restored. I did a long research for the best product and yours seemed like the best solution. Love that it is water based and I didn't have to remove the couch from the room or have harmful vapors in the air.

    I also fixed a few rips in the leather after applying the first coat. And since we had zippered cushions, I was able to add thin pieces of foam that I cut from an old camping mat and tucked them in behind the back pillows and underneath the end reclining seats. This plumped out the seats perfectly.

    When I started out I said out loud “This is a joke, this is ridiculous!” because it just didn’t seem like it was working very well. Then, I remembered that you said to be patient and apply more coats until the color covered well. Then, after about the 3rd coat, I said, “Oh my gosh, this really is working…I can’t believe it!” I applied 5 coats total and one coat of sealer and it looks fantastic. It only took about maybe 10 hours total to do it and now I am one of your new best advocates!

    We just couldn't be happier with our old/new sofa! Thanks so much. You were so helpful too when I had questions. You were right, our friends just can’t believe its our old sofa!

  3. AWESOME 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Oct 2017

    I was pretty skeptical about this product on how well it would actually work. But it did AWESOME!!!!! I'm so excited for how good it did. My parents bought these real leather couches 19 years ago. Well I wanted them and wanted to see if I could get them back to their original color. Well it WORKED!!!!! They were almost a red worn out color now they are back to a dark brown and I'm so excited!!

    Very easy to use. Made my chair look new again!!!!

  6. Will be back for more! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2017

    First try with your products, cannot believe this as is simple as stated, but: it IS! Espresso dye over hunter/teal Natuzzi leather. Notes: sprayer better option, and I did not use as was my first try; furniture with pleats and tucks are more of a challenge. 3 1/2 hrs, start to finish. Will be back for more. Thanks!

  7. The best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2017

    Im so glad that I orderd it. It has made my sofa look so much better in my living room

  8. It worked 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2017

    Although my sectional is bonded leather and it's NOT recommended for it since I had nothing to loose (it was ugly looking already) I decided to give it a try. This product worked really well. It gave my sectional a better looking surface. It has been only a month and it hasn't peeled or rub in our clothes. My husband wants me to buy more and save it for future needs. The smell is strong for 2 days and then is just GONE COMPLETELY. Even my dogs lay in the sectional without any problems. I love it!!

  9. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Feb 2017

    Works perfectly. It does take several coats to hide a worn spot etc but it works. Be very careful with the material so it doesnt stain anything other than your couch. Instructions are very very helpful.

  10. Bring your furniture back to life with Rub 'n Restore!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2017

    I recently gave my couch and loveseat a major face lift using the Espresso stain and I love it!! These two pieces of furniture were sent to the basement because I didn't like the look of the leather. The colour had changed and the seat area looked worn. The leather was in good shape, it didn't have any tears or scratches. So I thought just go for it.. I ordered online it was super simple and I received great customer service ordering online and when I've contacted Rub 'n Restore on Facebook. I've shown co-workers, friends and family my before and after photos and they were amazed. I highly recommend this product. It was so simple to use and the clean up was easy..

  11. Love it 5 Star Review

    Easy to use and looks great. Exactly what your product promises. Will tell my friends and will use your products again if needed. Thank you.

  12. Excellent Product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2016

    I was very pleased with the results I received using Expresso dye. I had a few tears to fix and I wasn't confident I could get the colour right because I was only dyeing sections but the blend was great and the final result is excellent.

  13. Success! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2016

    I love your products! After finding you on youtube and watching several videos multiple times, I ordered the supplies I needed to repair our torn couch. This was my first attempt ever at leather repair. I am very pleased with the results! I used espresso. Thanks!

  14. OMG 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2016

    I am an artist and i have done a lot of restorations with a lot of products and polyurethane and paints. This product is off the charts amazing (I bought cherrywood, buttercup, and espresso colors). It doesn't have noxious odors, doesn't stain anything except what it's supposed to stain, is completely brush - stroke forgiving, doesn't ruin my clothes, a project can be finished in a day....I could go on for pages! I will send my photos too but I just couldn't wait to say something because I am so happy I tried this product. Thank you!!! I think that's what I am trying to say, just Thank You!!!

  15. Love, love, love this color and product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2016

    This is the second time that I have used Rub n Restore and I highly recommend it! It is quick drying and it took 3-4 coats to cover my leather sofas and chairs. Make sure that when you use the dye that you have good light because it is easy to miss areas otherwise. So glad that I found this company!

  16. Excellent product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2016

    Easy to apply , effective and excellent results.

  17. LOVE IT 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Apr 2016

    Did better than I expected. I had dog scratches on my very nice leather sofa and they are now covered up. Also had a lighter ottoman with grease spots and I actually put expresso on it and it covered the spots but also darkened it more to match my couch.

  18. Saved my Couch! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2016

    I purchased the Rub'n Restore in Espresso to see if I could save my tired, worn, but loved couch and love seat. The aniline leather was worn so badly that the dark brown color was completely worn away in areas leaving whiteish, rough patches. The back of the love seat was sun bleached and the arm had a water ring on it from a coffee cup. Both pieces have been completely rejuvenate in color and texture. The pieces look so good I had company over and they asked if I had gotten new furniture! The service is great. I will definitely be recommending it to others!

  19. Great Product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2016

    This is great! I took an old leather chair with scratches and stains and turned it into this beautiful show piece!

  20. Works! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2015

    I was skeptical but it works, doesn't stink, and doesn't seem to come off. Really happy with the product.
