Intimate knowledge of the farm allows our roastmaster to draw out the fruit and floral tones of this strong yet elegant bean. 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 roastingcompany 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. Discover more about us at www.unionroaster.com/guatemala

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.
