Our coffee is best used within 3 months of its roast date.

We recommend keeping it in a cool, dry place, away from heat or direct sunlight. Make sure to always keep it sealed in its bag, or in an airtight container.

Try to avoid chilling or freezing your coffee, as this can affect the freshness. We only recommend freezing under special circumstances, such as for long, uninterrupted periods.

We're here to help!

Yes, we do. We always have a seasonal sourced decaf coffee that you can find more about it here.

We like to send you only the freshest coffee possible. So, we only ship whole bean coffee to preserve the freshness of the roast.

Without a coffee grinder? Not to worry, we also stock coffee grinders to help you brew the perfect cup at home.

Our aim is to make the journey from farm to cup as direct, ethical and sustainable as possible.

Our offerings reflect the seasonality of coffee and we will always finish each lot before the next harvest is available.
