Online Order Schedule

We've decided to evolve the way we send out coffee. Rather than limiting you to what we have already roasted in stock, we're allowing you to preorder whatever coffee you like in whatever size bag and we'll roast it just for you and send it fresh. So here's how to get the best of our 'SEND IT FRESH' program. 


WE ROAST: Tuesday/Wednesday.

WE SEND IT: TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY (as soon as it's roasted)

*If you order Tuesday - Thursday: We'll send it if it's fresh and in stock. (On season Blend & Roaster Choice usually always available, please enter your mobile in checkout so we can get quicker responses from you if needed.)

*FRIDAY/MONDAY: we don't dispatch these days unless specially requested. We think it's better for you to have reasonably fresh coffee when it arrives, these days are too far from our roast days, and couriers move slower. So If you order Friday - Monday: Your order will be put on the list for roasting on Tuesday/Wednesday. 


250g Home Compostable Bags

Our 250g bags are now Home Compostable!

(Please remove sticker valve before composting) - Our 1KG bags are still Soft plastic recyclable (but not really that recyclable in Australia because red cycle shut down and there's not many recycling options for soft plastics anymore). We are transitioning the 1KG bags to Home Compostable too, however we have pre-printed Soft plastic in stock that won't be finished for a while. But once they run out we'll be hitting the home compostable for sure!!

Help us close the loop, for a sustainable future.
