THE MOST GENEROUS CUP OF COFFEE IN DALLAS-FROM FARM TO CUP TO GARDEN
FROM FARM TO CUP TO GARDEN
Our coffee comes from some of the world’s best specialty coffee. We trust Onyx Coffee Lab as a roaster and bean provider.
Onyx has been turning out award winning coffees and baristas for years. They’re a nationally recognized name in specialty coffee for their talent and their commitment to relationship coffee. They buy coffee according to value, not stock price and break it all down on their website. Everything we buy from them tells a story.
Our Community Curator and co-founder, Mike Baughman, confesses that he opened Union thinking he didn’t like coffee. “Once we switched over to specialty coffee, I realized that I don’t dislike coffee...I dislike bad coffee. Now, I drink at least one pour over daily.”
The Union Coffee experience isn’t just full of specialty coffee flavor, we dedicate 10% of all coffee sales (not profits...sales) to local causes. Drinking Union coffee provides the resources to make Dallas better.
FROM cup to garden
Our coffee beans help COMMUNITY GARDENS in Dallas. Each week, volunteers swing by Union to pick up our used coffee grounds and use them to cultivate local, organic produce in Dallas’ food deserts and active neighborhoods.
We love Onyx for a few reasons:
Coffee. The coffee is exceptional. They source and roast coffee of an extremely high quality, with lots of variety. They feature several single origins and blends, while also offering a few extremely rare Gesha coffees.
Community. We love their approach to coffee. Onyx coffee is a team player, looking for the betterment of the coffee industry, and offering any advice or wisdom they have gained along the way
Cause. Onyx Coffee Labs believes in coffee farmers. They develop relationships with the farmers and pay them what they determine that the coffee is worth. This price is often 2-3 times the fair trade value. They have also worked with coffee farmers to create initiatives for them to have more profitable business. Onyx sells coffee blossom honey, bought directly from coffee farmers and also sells chocolate, with cacao grown on the farms.
