Returns Policy

Coffee Returns

As coffee beans are a perishable product, we do not accept returns where there is no quality issue with the product you received. Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that what you order will be to your personal taste, so please only order small quantities if you’re uncertain about a new coffee you’re trying for the first time. Please remember to use your beans when they are fresh (within 4-6 weeks of roast) for the best results!

The roasters we work with have been chosen because of the high quality of the coffees they source and roast, so we rarely see quality issues with their beans. Nevertheless, if you suspect there is a quality issue with what you have received, please let us know by contacting us at We will happily liaise with the roaster on your behalf to arrange for a replacement.
