We all know fresh is best. We say the optimum time to be drinking your coffee is with beans between 7-21 days of roasting. This is when you will get the most flavors and delicious notes in your cup of coffee.

How much does shipping cost?

We have three shipping options.

  • Pickup from our Greenroom - Sydney or Melbourne - FREE

Is your coffee Vegan approved?

Yes, our coffee is Vegan approved. Our Blackbird blend is best suited for use with plant-based mylks. We have numerous Vegan Cafes that use our Zest Specialty Coffee beans. Here is an article which outlines this growing trend - Particle Cinnamon.

How should I store my coffee?

It's so important that you store your freshly roasted coffee beans in the right way so that you maximise the delicious flavours and enjoy every mouthful right till the last sip.

  • Coffee beans or ground coffee need to be kept in an airtight environment. An airtight container or ziplock bag would be perfect. Our 250gm retail bags come with a re-sealable zip lock for this very reason.
  • Keep your coffee beans in a dry environment, away from any moisture. There is a common myth that you should store coffee beans in the fridge or freezer - this will damage your coffee beans. Coffee is hygroscopic, this means it absorbs moisture from the surrounding environment very easily.
  • Coffee beans need to be stored in a cool, dark place. Sunlight or hot weather will cause the beans to stale alot faster. The optimum storage temperatures are around 20 to 25C.

How often do you get new micro-lots?

Our micro-lots are rotated on a quarterly basis. Our flavour team are always on the look out for exceptional and mind-blowing microlots from all corners of the world to delight there (and your) tastebuds. We are always sampling new and exciting microlots, only the best make it onto the shelves. Keep a look out for the newbies...
