Refund, Return, & Subscription Policies
During this unprecedented time and the nature of our products being fresh single origin imports and/or custom roasted food/grocery perishable products, returns are evaluated on a case-by-case basis in dialogue with the buyer. Since we provide fresh imports, and custom-roasting services, please consider your selections and cupping preferences carefully for your coffee enjoyment. We follow coffee industry policies and standards in cupping and do our best describing coffee notes, however we are not responsible for individual palates and returns on personal tastes are not accepted. Please make your selections carefully when ordering as we fulfill exactly as the order shows from the customer selection through checkout. Once an order has been placed by the customer through checkout, we are unable to make any changes to the customer’s order as it is quickly brought over for order placement then fulfillment, and shipping assignment. If you need any assistance on your order and/or if you want some of our recommendations prior to order placement, please contact us at our customer service number, or chat with us Monday through Friday, and we will help you.
Return policy applies if there is an error in (the fulfillment of) shipping of the order. If there is ever a problem, please contact us within 14 days from the original date of purchase and we will do our absolute best to help you. All roasted orders are custom roasted M-F, and fulfilled as per customer selection(s); un-roasted orders are fulfilled as per customer selection(s). All products are from fresh current agricultural year imports. Please contact us at our expedited customer service number 617-798-0572 (eastern USA, M-F) for quick assistance and prompt resolution within the 14 day time period as mentioned above and we will do our best to resolve your concern quickly. You may also want to chat with us M-F. Also, it is always best to reach out to us early if an error is made in ordering since customer orders go over very quickly to fulfillment queues.
To be eligible for a return due to an error in fulfillment: your item must be unused, whole beans in the original condition as received, ground coffee not acceptable, and in the original packaging. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within the 14 days of receiving your delivery. In your initial inquiry, please include your name, order number (proof of purchase), the items you would like to return, and the reason for the return. You may also contact us through our contact page through email or telephone, Monday-Friday, 9 AM-3 PM, Eastern. Please allow us 2 business days to review your request. While every customer's request is unique, we will provide you with the best customer service experience to fairly resolve your concern.
If you qualify for a return, a representative will reply with instructions on how to return the item. To receive a refund, the product(s) must be returned/shipped at the customer’s expense. Please include your original order ID in the return shipment, which allows us to recognize your return when it arrives at our facility. Free shipping exchanges are no longer provided due to the extreme high costs of current carrier rates.
Once a return shipment has been received, inspected, weighed, and checked, we will contact you via email and issue an accurate refund for the returned (and inspected) items minus any discounts, promotional codes, or coupons used at the time of purchase. All refunds are exclusive of shipping costs, which are non-refundable, and are issued to the original form of payment used at the time of purchase, minus applicable 25% restocking and original 3.25% credit card processing fees (banking institution average + 3.25% depending on the credit card used in customer checkout).
Any returns received due to a buyer's refusal will be charged back the original FREE USA shipping fee as well plus the return carrier fee, depending on the carrier return charges. All return refusals can be traced and verified via carrier satellite scans and documented on the customer’s account(s). This will also apply if the carrier is unable to deliver due to non-receipt, no parcel receptacle, filled box, no customer pick-up, unable to forward, vacant premises, incorrect address. If the carrier cannot deliver, their scans document this and are noted accordingly. It is the buyer's sole responsibility to provide an address that is 100% accurate, verifiable, and deliverable.
For our international customers, due to the grocery nature of our products, please be advised that all sales are final and we do not accept nor process any international exchanges or returns. International orders must have the correct address for shipping accurately with assigned carriers. If an incorrect or undeliverable international address is supplied, or if the package is refused or abandoned by the customer, the carrier will return the package to us. If this happens, we will apply a re-stocking fee 25% for the product, plus all return postage charges towards the buyer's net refund for any incorrect/delivery exception address given to us through check-out for fulfillment of international order(s). Also, buyer refusal of package(s) AND/OR failure of duties not paid by the buyer for fulfillment of an international order will also incur these charges if returned to us. Original shipping charges are not refundable so it is imperative that all international orders are placed with a 100% accurate shipping address in order to deliver and receive promptly.
Before ordering, please check your country's import policies, restrictions, regulations, and standards to ensure that coffee beans are allowed in as an import, to your country destination. If your country has specific restrictions, policies, standards, etc., please make sure that you comply before ordering.
We have developed and launched a new structure to redefine the subscription experience in order to give customers more control over their subscriptions. You may subscribe anytime for the product(s) of choice, and there is FREE USA shipping available on orders less than 15 lbs. sitewide for everyone. We offer easier product swapping, a faster load time, advanced subscription management with custom edits, and the option to add any product(s) to a subscription order at any time without incurring an additional subscription commitment. You can now subscribe with more payment options, such as traditional credit card, PayPal Express, Apple Pay, or Shop Pay (with carbon neutral delivery), giving customers better subscription experience. Also, you may subscribe as a guest or with your account. However, establishing an account is highly recommended in order to manage your subscriptions and historical purchase data for your future viewing.
Every customer has the option to select a subscription/recurring order for any product(s) site-wide, and choose various weekly and monthly intervals for your subscription; the intervals are 1-6, weeks or 1-4 months chosen by the customer. Acknowledgement at checkout verifies the subscription order.
In order to maintain accuracy, and to remind every subscription customer, an automated email is sent out to our subscription customers about 3 days prior to the scheduled fulfillment of your subscription/recurring order. It is vital that you review this subscription email promptly (within 48 hours of email receipt) so that you may make any product and/or quantity changes, swap out products, pause or cancel your subscription, change cc number and/or address data, and review vital information for the accuracy of your subscription. This email notification is the time to make your changes. Any changes can be made when logging into your account, choose "Manage Subscription" under Account Details, and then proceed further to review your subscription details. After 3 days from the original email notification receipt, the time has elapsed, subscription orders will immediately go into fulfillment, any changes or cancellation will not be made, and shipping will proceed as selected by the customer.
If a customer refuses delivery of a subscription that they made and managed, and the order is returned to us, then a restocking and credit card processing fee will be applied. Merchant approved refunds are issued to the original form of payment used at the time of purchase, minus applicable 25% restocking and 3.25% credit card processing fees; banking institution average +3.25% depending on the credit card used in customer checkout. Also, any returns received due to a buyer's refusal will be charged back the original FREE USA shipping fee as well plus the return carrier fee, depending on the carrier return charges. All return refusals can be traced and verified via carrier satellite scans and documented on the customer’s account(s). This will also apply if the carrier is unable to deliver due to non-receipt, no parcel receptacle, filled box, no customer pick-up, unable to forward, vacant premises, incorrect address. If the carrier cannot deliver, their scans document this and are noted accordingly. It is the buyer's sole responsibility to provide an address that is 100% accurate and verifiable, and accept the order delivery as placed.
Effective January, 2023, please note that chat or email requests for us to change or modify a customer’s subscription method will not be processed any longer. Changes to a customer’s subscription will need to be made by the customer so that the integrity of their account and security of their credit card, and the financial gateway is maintained. Any request received will not automatically pause your subscription; you may login and manage your subscription accordingly through your account.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days depending on your issuing bank.
Late or missing refunds (if applicable)
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.

Sale and discounted items:
Only regular priced items may be refunded, sale or applied discounted items are not refundable.
Exchanges (if applicable)
We only replace or refund items if they are defective or damaged through our fulfillment process. Damaged items through the transit carrier should be directed to the carrier. Our product(s) are Q'cd 2 times and then to fulfillment where the product(s) are Q'cd 1 more time. Orders leave our facility completely intact and secure; the carrier is responsible for prompt and safe delivery of our products. We do not process exchanges any longer since our coffee commodities (both custom roasted and unroasted) are classified as grocery products. Plus, the high costs of carrier rates currently make it unaffordable to re-ship any exchanges. If you have a concern, question, etc., always feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our expedited Customer Service number 617-798-0572 (eastern USA, M-F), excluding holidays.
