Jeremy Torz of Union Hand-Roasted will be in Edinburgh again for the annual Coffee Fringe, this time at Cairngorm Coffee on Melville Street. Jeremy and his partner Steven are two of the founding memebers of the UK speiclaity coffee community, roasting first as Torz and Macatonia in the 1990s before moving on to found Union. Union focus not only on quality of coffee but also the quality of life of those individuals that produce coffee. They set up Union Direct Trade, a unique coffee purchsing system which not only guarantees a fair price for the coffee purchased, but also ensures that everyone at farm level has access to all they need to live healthily and thrive. Jeremy will be discussing development with with producer groups and will focus specifically on a project Union are involved with called the Yayu Wild Forest project.

In collaboration with Kew Gardens and the Department for International Development, Union are working to secure the long-term viabilty of one of the last wild coffee forests in the world. See you there.
