MEET THE ROASTMASTERS

MEET THE ROASTMASTERS

Roasting is a unique skill which takes years to learn. Thankfully our roastmasters have honed their skills to get the perfect roast every time.

Our coffee is hand-roasted in small batches in cast iron Probats from the 50s – no automated machinery used here!

Ever wondered who was behind the name on your Union Coffee Bag? Meet our Roastmasters...
