Stuck in a coffee rut? Always ordering the same thing? Understanding coffee from international origin to local blend might help you make a different choice. 

There are a few varieties of coffee been, but the 'Queen of Beans' is arabica. Arabica beans can be sourced from many places around the world, but the unique blend created specially for Filmore & Union uses beans from Honduras, Ethiopia and Somatra.

Much like wine, coffee can have underlying flavours beyond the immediately obvious taste. For example, the Filmore & Union blend was selected to have a chocolatey and smooth flavour.

If you're bored of your espresso, americano, cappuccino or latte, perhaps it's time to add a twist. A turmeric latte adds some turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon and honey to your espresso, so you can add flavour and even more health to your morning pick-me-up.

There's never been a better time to make a change to your coffee routine than UK Coffee week. It's an initiative using one of the biggest trades in the world to bring real change to the communities that grow our favourite bean.
