What Is a Roasting Session? Union’s live coffee roasting sessions will recreate the buzz and energy of its East London Roastery. Let the intoxicating smell entice you and discover how Union’s speciality coffee tastes as good as it does by watching Co-founder Jeremy fire up the San Franciscan roaster at this year’s Southampton Coffee Festival.

What is the Coffee Flavour Challenge? Like wine, coffee has a wide range of tasting notes. Flavour is influenced by factors from coffee bean varietal, soil, picking/washing method, roasting and freshness. The tastes and aromas found in coffee, range from fruity to nutty and citrus to chocolatey. Come and challenge your taste buds and discover which coffee profile is your favourite.


Raising Money with #BetterCoffee
