The perfect cafetiere

Our original house roast is unmistakably Union: bold intensity infused with a deep natural sweetness. Expertly blended and roasted for your early morning filter brew.
Flavour Category
chocolate & caramel chocolate & caramel
High quality coffee has wide ranging, naturally occurring taste notes. The dominant flavour profile in this coffee is Chocolate & Caramel. Brought out by the roasting process – caramelisation happens towards the end of the roast. Generally the darker the roast, the more dominant the chocolate and caramel flavours are.
Roast
This coffee is a medium roast. Roast level influences the flavour and body of coffee. Darker roasts are fuller bodied, lighter roasts brighter. A medium roasted coffee bean is medium brown in colour. It retains many of the flavour profiles of the natural bean but also gains some sweetness and body from a longer roast.
Quality Score

Coffee scoring over 80 on Speciality Coffee Association scale is considered High Quality, Speciality Coffee.

House Roast

The coffees in this blend...

There are currently 2 producers that provide the coffees that make up our House Roast Blend

Timaná is a municipality located in the South of Huila, Colombia, surrounded by the Central and Cordillera Central and Occidental ranges of the Colombian Andes. The area boasts good soils and high altitude - the perfect environment for growing speciality coffee. The ASPROTIMANA co-operative was formed by 32 farmers in 2001, and now boasts over 220 members with a common goal to create socio-economic stability for coffee farming families in the region.

Chirinos is a co-operative of smallholder coffee farmers in Amazonas, North Peru. In 1968, 36 smallholder farmers joined together to form this co-operative and today they boast over 807 members, of which 30% are women, from several communities in Cajamarca region. The average coffee producer farms an area less than 5 hectares, so being part of a co-operative enables them to sell their coffee.
