Union Hand-Roasted Coffee Beans
Excitement, passion, partnership. All these have defined Union. Since we were founded by Jeremy Torz and Steven Macatonia in 2001, we've been a proud part of the story of UK coffee. And a proud partner to hundreds of coffee farmers, worldwide.
DON'T DRINK AND WALK
It's hard to imagine today, but in Britain a few decades ago, you’d never see someone drinking a takeaway coffee in the street. There were no baristas. There was no café culture. No-one paid much attention to the quality of their coffee.
So our story begins in San Francisco, where Steven and Jeremy were working. One day, they ducked into a tiny café. Inside, they were roasting fresh coffee. They watched the beans come tumbling out of the roaster: hot, fresh, aromatic. And that was that.
SELF-CONFESSED COFFEE OBSESSIVES
Inspired, they threw themselves into the world of coffee, learning anything and everything they could.
Then they decided to bring that West Coast inspiration to London.
So they quit their day jobs. Packed up, shipped out, settled in, started pitching. Sold everything they had to rent a workshop and buy a roaster. And a fax machine (cutting edge, back then).
IN GOOD TASTE
Union was stirring – in more ways than one.
It was a whole new approach to coffee. Buying great coffee, roasting it in small batches, creating a more flavourful cup. Even talking about a more flavourful cup - and introducing flavour profiles - was new.
Little did we know: an even more meaningful union was waiting to be discovered.
