Commonly Asked Questions

Do you offer flavored coffee?

We do not offer flavored coffees. However, specialty grade coffees are naturally characterized by a vast palette of flavors reflective of the coffee origin; including plant variety, soil, climate, elevation, and processing methods. Just like with wine, we have included tasting notes on the identification tags that accompany each coffee we offer to characterize each coffee’s unique natural flavors. These notes refer to the quality of the sweetness, acidity, and mouthfeel. Different brewing methods will also bring out different flavor notes in each coffee. For example, cold brewing will highlight chocolate notes while hot pour-over brewing will bring out the floral and citrus notes in a coffee. Experiment at home to find out how you like your favorite coffees to be brewed.

Is your coffee organic certified?

We do offer organic certified coffees. These coffees are cultivated, roasted, and certified in accordance with USDA Organic standards. However, certification can be too expensive for many small farms and shareholders. Our farmer-direct partners use organic cultivation practices whenever possible, even if they are not certified.

How can I keep my coffee fresh?

We recommend buying your beans whole and grinding on demand. Keep your beans in a cool, dry place away from light and humidity. Make sure to use an air-tight container for storage. Use your coffee within two weeks of opening the bag.
