They roast their coffee every day in small batches to display the coffee's fullest expression of flavour and aroma.
Established in 2001, Union Hand-Roasted was created by Jeremy Torz and Steven Macatonia who entered into the world of coffee from inspiration by the micro-roastery cafes of San Francisco, California and then from their observations of the difficult predicament of farmers in coffee growing communities.
