About Union

About us

Hello, we’re Union. We’ve been sourcing, roasting, living and loving good coffee since 2001.

We find and work directly with talented farmers, paying them a fair price so they can invest in their farm, families, and workers It’s called Union Direct Trade.

Those fair prices, and our investment in smallholder farmers, make our specialty coffee extra special.

We hand-roast our coffee in small batches. Tiny, carefully-tended batches. To us, roasting is an art.

And it shows. All our coffees are scored 84 and above on the SCAA’s international scale – the definitive measure of coffee quality.

And our micro-lots? (Small quantities of rare, incredible coffees, grown in the best conditions possible.) Those typically score more than 88.

It’s all thanks to our people. The farmers who grow our coffee. The roastmasters working tirelessly to perfect each roast. And the trainers, who teach baristas, enthusiasts, beginners – everyone – how to brew exquisite coffee.
