We ship via Australia EXPRESS Post.

You’ll receive a tracking number as soon as your order is processed. We ship orders Monday-Friday using the express post service – on your doorstep within 2 business days from despatch date.


We all know fresh is best. For optimum flavour we aim to ship within 2-14 days of roasting. For micro-lot orders we may have to wait till our next available roasting day, which can add up to 5 days to your order processing.


We have three shipping options.

  • Pickup from our stores – Sydney or Melbourne – FREE
  • All orders above $60 are shipped free
  • A subsidized shipping charge of $7.00 is charged on orders under $60

    How should I store my coffee?

    It’s so important that you store your freshly roasted coffee beans in the right way maximizing flavour and extending enjoyment of every mouthful right till the last sip.

    Keep it airtight!

    Coffee beans or ground coffee need to be kept in an airtight environment. An airtight container or zip lock bag would be perfect. Our 250gm retail bags come with a re-sealable zip lock for this very reason.

    Keep it dry, not in the fridge!

    Coffee beans need to be stored in a dry environment, away from any moisture. There’s a common myth that you should store coffee beans in the fridge or freezer – this will damage your coffee beans. Coffee is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture from the surrounding environment very easily.

    Cool and dark.

    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 searching and sampling exceptional and mind-blowing micro-lots from all corners of the globe to delight their (and your) taste buds. Keep your eyes peeled for newbies, or sign up to our mailing list to stay on track.
