Our mission is to spread the joy of specialty coffee – from baristas to cafe, fine restaurants to home brewing enthusiasts, we want people to discover a world of coffee that is better for everyone. Welcome to our Union.
Step into our east London roastery and you’ll find Union roastmasters stood over our Probat and Loring roasters, tending to each small batch with care. Our roastmasters are experts at bringing the best flavour out of each particular coffee. We roast all our coffee fresh to order, which means you receive it as fresh and tasty as it gets.
We call ourselves Union because we couldn’t make great coffee without our partners—the farmers that grow the exclusive gems we share with you. In return, we pay them a fair price so they can invest in their farm, families and workers. We work with our partners long-term, towards constantly improving the quality of coffee and livelihoods. We call it Union Direct Trade, and we’re proud that we were one of the first roasters in the UK to trade directly with coffee farmers.
Today, we work in 14 countries with over 42 producer partners to bring you an ever-changing selection of delicious coffees, from our house blends to single origins and exciting microlots.
