That's an excellent deal. Their Revelation is really a great espresso blend. At half price - don't hesitate:cool:

2 new Costa Ricans for me to try over the next few days.

 

Some of the Union microlot coffee recently has been very delicious. I have been really enjoying it through the LONDINIUM I which saldy gets boxed up and delivered back this afternoon.

This may sound silly, but are the SO's listed outwith the espresso section, really only designed to be filter coffee's - or are those of you who are ordering SO's planning on using them in your espresso machines? The espresso section seems small in the context of the number of coffee's they have on offer, although what they do have sounds good.

Of the SO's I have tried from Union only 3 (out of about 20) were not suitable for espresso, but shone as brewed coffee.

The remaining coffee held its own as an espresso, in fact some were better than as brewed.

That said, I usually enjoy Union's coffees best brewed with a syphon or Chemex.

Certainly there are SOs in the espresso section that make great espresso - the Sumatra I'd particularly recommend.

I find their extra-dark roasts (like Revelation and Foundation) far too dark even for my taste. Organic Natural Spirit is rather good though.

Cant fault the service from Union. Bag arrived in a solid box with purple wrapping paper.

 

Ordered on 17th, roasted on 19th delivered today (21st), I suspect they are busy to with all that press coverage and the discount!

 

The rogue blend appears to simply be a single origin with an amended roast profile, bit weird as the SO is £1 cheaper.

Snap Gary, mine arrived today after roasting on the 19th. Good packaging and fast delivery, smelling good but am going to wait a few days before cracking on with them. Gone for a couple of Costa Rican SOs, haven't ordered from Union in a while, these roasts look significantly lighter than I remember, which for me is good.

Yeah , most people I know having tried Union have stated much darker roast styles , hence why i went for something 'delicate' even for espresso. Look forward to cracking the bag open this weekend

First 2kg batch arrived yesterday, half for me, half for somebody else.

 

Opened the Foundation today, first shot a bit fast, but in a flat white tasted lush. Deep nutty roast flavour, but in harmony with everything else going on in the cup. Sort of nutty nougat taste.

Got my bag of Rogue Espresso the other day, just cracked it open now and pulled a shot. Very tasty indeed!

Thanks again for the heads up on this :)

I have been enjoying some San Jeronimo bourbon microlot over the weekend - great news is that the offer still seems live on their website so everyone has a chance to enjoy the offer.
