High quality coffee sourced with ethics, is at the heart of everything we do.
How do we source such good coffee?
We source all our coffee through Union Direct Trade. That means more than just paying farmers a fair price. It means working with farmers, long-term, to improve the coffee and their livelihoods.
It's where our name comes from – Union. And it’s where the best coffee comes from.
We roast good coffee
Our roastery is dominated by our cast-iron Probat coffee roasters, originals from the 50s. Our dedicated roastmasters tend the coffee beans as they tumble, swell, change colour from sage to straw to chestnut brown, then pull them from the hot drum at just the right second. Through this meticulous craft of roasting, tasting, adjusting... roasting, tasting, adjusting, we develop the coffee’s rich, sweet flavours.
We sell good coffee
You can, of course, subscribe direct to get good coffee from Union, freshly roasted to order and delivered right to your door. Or give someone the gift of a great cup of coffee. We also supply top cafés, boutique delis, coffee bars, and restaurants, too. Not only that, but we help them with specialist equipment – from cleaning to calibration – and offer top-notch barista training. Interested?
We brew good coffee
We support a coffee culture. Not a coffee cult. Everyone should feel empowered to own, and enjoy great coffee. So we guide you through every type of brew, from ‘press down the plunger’ to ‘extinguish the spirit burner’. Email or tweet us your coffee questions and observations, whenever you like.
We celebrate good coffee
Love coffee? Love an event? Then you’ll love our coffee events. Hands-on brewing, Q&As, cupping, seasonal blend showcases, latte art throwdowns, the works. Sign up to our list and we’ll let you know what’s coming up.
