What is specialty coffee?
Specialty coffee is a selection of coffees that are rated at least 80 out of 100. Coffee is graded using a scale, that has been created by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) to qualify desirable attributes within coffee.
How do I brew my coffee?
There are many ways to brew a great cup of coffee! We use a V60 in our roastery, but there are more methods available than we could begin to mention. The keys to great coffee are grinding fresh, using great water, and using an ideal ratio of coffee to water.
Is your coffee fair trade?
With every coffee we purchase, we support sustainable growing practices, paying fair prices, and sourcing through direct relationships. We are committed to improving the lives of coffee farmers, and the preservation of specialty coffee varieties.
Is your coffee organic?
A selection of our coffees are certified organic, however all coffees are purchased from farms that have good farming practices. If a coffee is certified organic you will see that noted on the coffee’s page.
What is the roast level of your coffee?
We offer a variety of roast levels from light to dark. Each coffee is roasted specifically to bring out the best flavor attributes for that coffee.
What's the shelf life of coffee?
Our recommendation is to brew within 60 days of its roast date.
What's the best way to store my coffee?
You can certainly store coffee in the sealed Clay Coffee Co. bags, in a cool, dark place. You might choose to use an air-tight container to reduce oxidation which promotes a longer shelf life.
When will my order ship?
Each coffee is roasted to order. We roast, package, and ship coffees Monday - Friday. Please allow 2 days for shipping from order date. If you order on Monday, your coffee will be roasted Tuesday and shipped Wednesday.
What is your return policy?
Because coffee is a consumable product with a limited shelf life, we are unfortunately unable to accept returns or exchanges except under certain circumstances.
If you received an incorrect item, or the item was damaged in shipping please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
