PaxEx: British Airways to Serve Union Hand-Roasted Coffee
British Airways is partnering with British specialty roaster, Union Hand-Roasted Coffee, to provide customers with great tasting coffee in the air and on the ground.
The airline will be serving the UK based company’s hand-roasted coffee in all of its UK lounges and to those travelling in its First and Club World cabins, from next month.
Founded in 2001 the east London based Union Hand-Roasted Coffee, is one of the UK’s largest speciality coffee roasters and suppliers.
Together with British Airways, the direct trade coffee supplier has developed an exclusive blend that works well at 35,000ft.
Sourced from Peru the medium roast blend has espresso tasting notes of chocolate, pecan, and caramel, which will complement dishes served on board, such as the chocolate délice or warm bread and butter pudding.
The coffee stations within the airline’s UK lounges will be revamped as part of the introduction of Union Coffee, to best display the wide range of options.
First Class customers can select from a wide range of coffee options on demand, including latte, cappuccino, filter coffee and espresso while Club World customers can enjoy premium filter coffee.
