Product information

Foundation is a dark roasted blend of Guatemalan, Sumatran and Ethiopian coffees - a balanced, heavy bodied coffee. Foundation is a 'no holds barred' Arabica blend echoing the dark, sweet roasts of Southern Italy and Sicily.

We hand-roast our coffee in small batches to develop delicious flavour and aroma for each individual coffee.

All our coffee is sourced according to our Union Direct Trade principles. More than just paying a fair price, Union Direct Trade means we work in partnership with farmers to improve the quality of both coffee and livelihoods longterm. We pay farmers minimum 25% above Fairtrade prices and ensure they follow our Code of Conduct covering labour laws and sustainability.

Rich coffee

Mid march - received beans roasted at the end of December. Not super fresh but better than most of the other fresh roast coffee brands here. Coffee is quite strong and rich. YET mellow once you add milk. Nice option

favourite coffee

I have tried many coffee beans and have settled on this one. Quite strong but not bitter. I buy it 1kg at a time and set the grinder to fine. Used also on espresso setting.

Great blend

Love these beans, prefer them to the Revelation beans from Union which are similar. Nice dark roast, not too bitter, they make a great espresso or 50.
