This online Book Club has been developed in partnership with Union Coffee.

Union was founded in 2001 by Steven Macatonia and Jeremy Torz, two scientists who went to buzzing San Francisco in the 90s and discovered an artisan coffee scene that didn’t yet exist in the UK. Union is all about marrying high quality speciality coffee with responsible sourcing, making coffee better for everyone from drinkers to farmers.

Their latest microlot, Diva Maria and Mercedes Rojas, is a delicious coffee grown by the Women’s Group at ASPROTIMANA, a coffee growers association in Colombia. To celebrate the inspiring group of women, this coffee is named after the two producers who grew it: Diva María Pineda and Mercedes Rojas. Diva María Pineda, lives in a community called Montañita (little mountain) with her husband and three sons. Up at the heights of 1890 m.a.s.l, you’ll find Diva’s farm Lagunita (the lake) where she grows the Caturra variety. Mercedes Rojas, her husband, son and daughter live in a community called San Antonio, growing the Castillo variety at her farm, Guadillal situated up at 1780 m.a.s.l.

With taste notes of red grape, blood orange and muscovado sugar, this coffee is best enjoyed as filter brew whilst reading an inspiring book.
