Have you been asking yourself ‘what can I get my dad for Father’s Day?’ and coming up stumped? If your dad is a coffee lover, of any kind, we’ve got all your gift needs covered. From the recent convert to the seasoned experts, we have a gift to suit him.
For the gentleman drinker
If your dad prefers a smooth clean cup with minimal fuss, we suggest our perfectly appointed Father’s Day Coffee Gift Set with two sure-fire winners, Asprotimaná, Colombia and our Equinox Seasonal Blend. The presentation box also includes an Aeropress, a clever little gizmo designed to make brewing coffee easier, with no mess. Perfect for dads who like to tinker! If you’re not familiar with this simple gadget take a look at our clip on how to use it to brew quickly for a great result.
For the refined classic
If you’re spending Sunday with dad enjoying a good, old fashioned roast; bring a bag of coffee to round off the meal. You can’t go wrong with Union favourite Gajah Mountain, Sumatra, Indonesia. It’s a trusted classic and bound to appeal to even the most conservative of palates. With flavour notes of plum, blackberry, sweet candied fruit and a deep rich body, it makes for a sublime late afternoon pick me up. And one that will score you a brownie point or two. If your dad is a classic, refined gent then this is the coffee for him (and you).
For the daredevil
Rogue is an old faithful here at Union, but it’s never too familiar. It’s loved, but prone to unpredictability. It was a blend of coffees, now we’ve created it as a single origin espresso, from flavio salles machado (FAF) microlot 560/562, brazil. But it’s always the product of extremely hard work. This microlot is carefully hand-picked then meticulously dried. If your dad’s still the punk who never backed down, then Rogue’s unpredictability is exactly right for him. It’s complex, spiky and prone to go, well…rogue. If your dad’s up for accepting a challenge, the reward from Rogue is a super clean, sweet coffee. Let him put his coffee mettle to the test with this one.
