Union Story: Our journey began in the 90's with one pound of fresh roasted coffee from a local coffee roaster in San Francisco.
Our senses were stirred by an explosion of flavours a skilled roastmaster coaxed from these special coffee beans.
Inspired to start our own coffee roasting company back home in London, our dream was to provide like-minded souls with exceptionally good, fresh roasted coffee, just what we wanted to drink for ourselves.
We now roast for the most renowned restaurants and gourmet food stores in Britain, and for coffee fans like you.

Product Information



Union Hand-Roasted


To keep the flavours fresh once opened, roll the top of this pack down tightly and secure with a rubber band. Store in the freezer, and use within four weeks.


A rounded dessert spoon of grounds per cup makes the perfect filter pot or cafetiere of coffee. If it's too strong for your taste, just add a little hot water after brewing.
- If you're using a cafetiere, let the kettle come off the boil, then wet the grounds eveny with a little water before topping up. Give it 4 minutes, then plunge.
- To keep the flavours fresh, transfer brewed coffee to a thermos jug rather than leaving it on the hot plate.
- Make sure your coffee maker is clean, as coffee oil build-up will taste stale.

Preparation and Usage

Storage and brewing tips

We do not recommend storing an opened bag in the fridge.

Make sure all the elements of your coffee making equipment are scrupulously clean. Coffee oils will build up without regular cleaning, which will make the coffee taste stale.

There are many ways to brew your coffee, and for expert advice and guidance, please visit unionroasted.com and search for 'brewing'.

The best to date

Im currently working my way through various beans, having recently discovered the phenomenon that is the Aeropress and embarked on a journey of discovery with it. For everyday value white Americano, Waitrose Colombian beans are hard to beat - but these are my absolute favourite so far. Really great - smooth, fragrant, perfect strength and not a hint of bitterness even if you force the strength with more water through the grounds. Recommended!
