When will the coffee be sent?

  • Our beans are roasted to order as we want to produce the best to our coffee drinkers. We currently roast twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays. When orders are received before 5pm on the day prior to the roasting day, we will send out the coffee within 3 working days from the date of roast. We cup the coffees after each roast before we bag them, hence we can only send out the beans earliest on the following day after the roast. You will receive an email/sms notification when the coffee is sent. Do let us know if you did not receive your order. 

  • Note: If you order your coffees by Tuesday 5pm, we will include your order in our Wednesday's roast and will sent out by Thursday. For orders before Sunday 5pm, your orders will be sent out on Monday. No coffees will be sent on weekends since the Post Office will not handle any incoming mails, but all orders will be posted out on Mondays instead

Do you ship internationally?

Currently, we only are only able to provide internal shipping within Singapore. 

Can I have the coffee ground?

We would like to make it more convenient for all our coffee friends but we would prefer to have you getting the best we can possibly offer and so we strongly encourage you to grind your own coffee. You will get MUCH MORE out of the coffees if you DIY than getting us to grind it for you.   

How should I store my coffee? How long can the coffee last?

  • It's advisable to keep the coffee in the bag which it comes in, rolled up tightly and store in an air-tight container and keep in a cool, dry place, out of the sunlight. The better the storage conditions, the better the flavours hold. Do not keep the coffee in the refrigerator/freezer. Due to the humidity in our local climate, condensation occurs when you take the bag in/out of the refrigerator/freezer. Moisture does no good to the coffees until you start brewing it. 
  • We encourage you to use your coffee within a month of the roast date to get the best flavours out from it. We do highly recommend you to buy in small quantities to avoid coffees from going stale.

What are some recommended ways to brew the coffee myself?

Here are numerous ways to make coffee and its really a trial and error process to find the way you like. A couple of general pointers that might get you started:

  • Use filtered water rather than mineral water. Water makes up 95-98% of the cup of coffee, so don’t underestimate the importance of water quality.

  • Try using water that is between 90-95°C. We feel that this temperature range typically helps to extract the flavours from the coffee. For Aeropress, you can try a lower temperature around 85-90°C.

  • Grind coffee right before brewing.

  • Start with a brew ratio of 60 grams of coffee for every 1 litre of water, then adjust the ratio according to your taste and age of beans.

Returns/Cancellation Policy

Coffees sold are not refundable. We check the conditions of all products that are to be shipped out prior to shipping, hence the item(s) delivered are not refundable unless there are serious faults/defects that we are unable to detect by visual inspection. You can contact us and we will try our best to fix the issue.
