Union Hand-roasted news, & some good Q&A's with Indie cafes...

9. Is there a particular coffee which sells better than others? The Bright Note blend has been extremely popular with our customers, who continually insist that we must be ‘putting something in our coffee’ to make it taste so good. The Abahuzamugambi Ba Kawa, from Rwanda, was popular with both staff and customers as a filter. Both of these coffees are quite rich and satisfying. Lately, the Los Lajones from Panama is hitting the spot, as is the Harrar Sundried from Ethiopia. I think it takes a bit of time and effort to help people to understand and appreciate the differences between coffee types and regions, as well as production methods and roasting profiles. It would be great if Union were to establish a ‘diploma’ course that covered these topics because it would definitely help all of us on the front line.
