Where do you roast your coffee?
Our coffee is roasted locally in Auckland, New Zealand. Because our professional roaster roasts our coffee in small batches, your orders are immediately packed, dispatched and freshly delivered to your door within 1-4 working days.
Yes. When you make an order, simply specify the type of grind you want: whole beans, espresso grind, filter grind or plunger grind (French press).
What type of grind shall I choose?
That depends on the method and equipment you use to prepare your coffee. The coffee grind can have an enormous effect on the way your cup of coffee looks and tastes. If the grind is too coarse then the coffee flavours will tend to be under extracted and you will end up with a weak tasting coffee. If the grind is too fine the coffee will become over extracted and bitter. Espresso machines will generally require coffee that is more finely ground than coffee filters or plungers (French presses).
Is shipping really free?
Yes. Shipping is free for all fresh coffee of any types to all NZ nationwide addresses, including residential addresses, business addresses, and rural addresses.
Are prices in New Zealand dollar?
