Queens Enterprise Award
At Buckingham Palace in 2017 Jeremy and Steven were presented the Queen's Award for Sustainable Enterprise by HRH Queen Elizabeth II.
This award is the culmination of over 15 years of work to create a better way to source high quality coffee, and testimony to the success of Union Direct Trade.
European Coffee Awards
On a chilly November evening in Milan, our hearts were warmed to be announced as the Best Specialty Coffee Roaster – Europe at the Allegra European Coffee Symposium.
This is the fourth we've won this award. And it was all thanks to a union of farmers, roasters, tasters and drinkers.
Feefo Trusted Service
After every purchase you make on this website we ask you two questions; How was the service you received and and did you like your coffee?
For the last two years in a row we've been awarded the Gold Trusted Service Award from Feefo for consistently scoring more than 4.5/5 for both.
We have worked together with The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and the Darwin Initiative since 2014, to preserve one of the world's last remaining wild coffee forests. In 2019 the Specialty Coffee Association recognised the important work we have been doing.
