The art of hand-roasting
We believe coffee roasting is a unique skill that is easy to pick up, but takes years to master. Thankfully we have been roasting for years, and that’s why we call our talented coffee roasters “roastmasters”.
We don’t rely on automated machinery to roast our coffee to perfection, instead we control the development of the roast by hand, using sensory skills to monitor changes in colour, aroma, and physical changes in the beans. The ability to craft roast to produce an accurate roast profile (how the temperature changes during roasting), is key to the consistency of each batch of coffee we roast. We also cup (taste) every single batch of coffee post-roast for quality-approval before it’s sent out to you.

Union was founded by Steven and Jeremy, two scientists who quickly became ex-scientists when they fell in love with coffee. Fell in love with coffee – but not with the coffee industry. So they did something different. Today, we source, roast, brew, teach, and celebrate great coffee.
