How fresh is my coffee?

In most cases, your coffee will be roasted 1 to 2 days from ship date. We do guarantee that we will not ship your coffee if it is more than 5 days from roasted.

Our green coffee is as fresh as can be. We only purchase green coffee as it is arriving from the farm to the warehouses. This is why we rotate our coffee menu constantly so that we can offer the freshest possible product.

Why do you not have the same coffees and origins year round?

Coffee is seasonal and because our offering philosophy is to only have the freshest and best-tasting coffees we can find this, in turn, does not allow us to have some origins and/or specific coffees year round. We want you to be able to have the best and freshest product available and just like produce coffee degrades with time.

Once we run out of one coffee we will purchase the next fresh lot that is as unique, delicious and tasty as the others.

When do you roast?

We roast Monday through Thursday and ship the next day in most cases.

Can you pre-grind coffee?

Although we do not recommend to pre-grind coffee because it compromises taste and freshness, we can! When ordering please specify which brewing method you will be using and we will grind for you.

Is your coffee “Fair Trade” or “Organic”?

We do not purchase specifically labeled coffee being “fair trade” or “Organic”. From time to time some of our coffee will have these labels but we do not specifically seek for these, our goal is to purchase for quality and taste. Any of these labels does not guarantee sustainability or quality of the coffee.

Do you have Dark or Light Roasts?

All our coffees are generally in the Medium Roast spectrum. We roast with a technique which brings out the best of each coffee and at the medium roast point is where all the flavors are highlighted to its best potential. Some will be darker or lighter than others all depending on the particular bean and at which point its flavors are highlighted best.

Do you have Decaf?

From time to time we will have it on our menu. If there are none is because we have sold out and are looking for only exceptional decaf coffees that meet our high standards.

How should I store my coffee?

We recommend keeping the coffee away from extreme heat or cold. Our coffee bags are a great place to keep them fresh. But you may also place them in an airtight container (ceramic, glass, plastic or aluminum) away from light and in a cool environment. Never put the coffee in the refrigerator.

How long does my coffee stay fresh?

Because coffee is perishable time degrades not only the freshness but also its complex flavors. As time passes some of the delicate flavors start to disappear and after a couple of months (if stored correctly) will start tasting stale. We recommend to use coffee in the first month of it being roasted and purchasing the whole bean for optimal flavor. If it is pre-ground you can expect its flavor to degrade much quicker.

What payment methods do you accept?
