The new coffee will be available for all visitors of the festival to try – though its origin is obviously under wraps until then, Union have got our mouths watering at the promise of a "super-fruity flavour profile".
Named after their educational centre and roasting space, the Campus series began as a way for Union to exhibit coffees that might otherwise not fit the specialty roaster's portfolio, giving them the opportunity to take a more expeirmental approcat to sourcing and roasting; former Campus coffees have included a natural El Salvador, Rwandan from the Sovu washing station, and an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.
Each of the Campus coffees are carefully chosed by Union's Head of Quality (not to mention Licensed Q Grader, SCA Trainer, WBC Sensory Judge and all-round coffee superstar) Edita Chodarcevic, who helps ensure that the roast profile is carefully develped to get the most out of each lot.
As you'll already have noticed, each of the Campus coffees come with beautifully packaging designed by Ben Clark, a neo-tradionalist tattoo artist from New Zealand, who uses his distinct style to reflect the individuality of each origin.
Alongside Campus #4, Union will be brewing up a flight of six filter coffees, each with a unique sourcing story and their own distinct characteristics. Three espressos and iced drinks made with their Cold Brew Concentrate round-off a packed stand.
