Union Coffee


Founded in 2001, Union Coffee’s mission is to spread the joy of speciality coffee the masses, helping people discover a world of coffee that is better for everyone.

They call themselves Union because they couldn’t make great coffee without their partners—the farmers that grow the exclusive gems they share with us. In return, they pay them a fair price so they can invest in their farm, families and workers.

They work with their partners long-term, towards constantly improving the quality of coffee and livelihoods. They call it Union Direct Trade, and they’re proud that they were one of the first roasters in the UK to trade directly with coffee farmers.
Today, they work in 14 countries with over 42 producer partners to bring you an ever changing selection of delicious coffees, from their house blends to single origins and exciting microlots.

In 2017, Jeremy and Steven received the most regal of invites to Buckingham Palace to be presented the Queen's Award for Industry: Sustainable Development by HRH Queen Elizabeth II. The award was the result of 15 years of focus and drive to create a better way to source high-quality coffee, a proud testimony to the success of Union Direct Trade.

Union Hand-Roasted Coffee is a certified B Corporation! The health of the people and planet has always been at the forefront of their business and remains so today.

They received this certification which is testament to the commitment they made in 2001 and the work they continue to do every day.

Throughout 2020, they donated enough coffee to make over 100,000 cups to charities and key workers, mainly to the NHS, Great Ormond Street Hospital and through FareShare.
