What happens after I place an order?
After you place an order you will see an order confirmation page. You will then receive the order confirmation through e-mail, so you have it for your records.

At times, a similar or comparable item may be substituted in the event the item ordered is out of stock or indefinitely backordered.  If you wish to refund your substituted item instead before the time of shipping, please contact us.

Lost or Stolen Packages

We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages confirmed to be delivered. Upon inquiry, we will confirm delivery to the provided address including tracking information and date of delivery for the customer to investigate or file a claim.

Fresh Coffee, Always

All of our coffees are shipped in heat-sealed, heavily lined foil bags with a one-way freshness value, leading to a healthy shelf life.  That said, don’t over buy if you aren’t going to use the coffee in a reasonable amount of time.  Keep in mind, whole bean coffee will keep much longer than ground coffee.
