We are happy to replace any items damaged in transit. We typically ask for a photo of the damage to pass along to our shipping department in case there is a trend in breakage. Additionally, if the box was also damaged, a photo of that can help us get information to our shipping partners. Please let us know the original order number and the best address for the return shipment.

General FAQ

Why does my coffee look oily after a while?  Oils on roasted coffee beans are the result of a natural oxidation reaction that occurs in roasted beans and over time. Coffee beans contain oil which is released in the roasting process. A lot of the aromas and flavors of the darker roast beans come from these oils. Therefore, oil in coffee beans is a normal and typical quality of dark roasted beans like our Saigon Blend, Hangover Chaser and Saigon Nights. Know that these are a natural part of the roasting process.

What is Non-GMO coffee?  Non-GMO coffee means that the coffee has not been genetically altered in the breeding or growing process. Compared to other crops, coffee is one of the most under researched crops in the world. There hasn’t actually ever been any coffee that’s been genetically modified so all coffee is inherently non-GMO.  https://www.nongmoproject.org/gmo-facts/

Is there mold in coffee?  Understandably, you may not like the idea of having toxins in your foods or beverages. Still, keep in mind that toxins — including mycotoxins — are everywhere, making it  impossible to avoid them completely. Trace amounts of mycotoxins have been found in coffee beans, but the amounts are far below safety limits and too low to be of practical significance.  https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/the-mycotoxins-in-coffee-myth

What does USDA Organic mean?  “Organic certification requires that farmers and handlers document their processes and get inspected every year. Organic on-site inspections account for every component of the operation, including, but not limited to, seed sources, soil conditions, crop health, weed and pest management, water systems, inputs, contamination and commingling risks and prevention, and record-keeping. Tracing organic products from start to finish is part of the USDA organic promise.” https://www.usda.gov/media/blog/2012/03/22/organic-101-what-usda-organic-label-means
