How much do you donate to charity?

Are coffee subscription boxes available?

Yes. Most of our coffees are available on subscription, it's very simple to set up. Just click on the 'Subscribe & Save 7.5%' button available on each coffee to get started. If your subscribed coffee is unavailable we will substitute it with a similar coffee to ensure you get your order.

Do you offer ground coffee?

Yes. On each coffee product there is a drop down menu to select the grind type.

Do you do K-cups or Nespresso pods?

No, but there are reusable ones available that you can refill with our coffee. We have some available at the Espresso Bar in Georgetown.

Yes, they are delivered digitally, can be used on our online store, and range from $10 to $100. You can buy them here. Or you can pick up physical gift cards from our location in Georgetown. Digital Gift Cards can only be used online, physical Gift Cards can only be used at the café, not online.

Learn about the different brewing methods with our Brew Guides here.

Where is my order?

Local deliveries are fulfilled according to the schedule here. Canada Post / UPS orders are shipped within two business days. This can change depending on operational needs. 5lb bags may take longer to fulfil. If shipped via Canada Post / UPS, your order confirmation email/text will contain tracking information. Once shipped, we cannot speed up delivery.

Is there a loyalty program or rewards point?

Absolutely there is! Grow your 'Magic Beans' here.

Can I spend my 'Magic Beans' at the Espresso Bar, or on a subscription?

Unfortunately our online platform is different from that used at the Espresso Bar and is not compatible, but all of our coffee is slightly cheaper at the café as we don't have to ship it.

Magic Beans Rewards can only be used on one-off purchases as the system creates a coupon code, and because the subscriptions go through checkout automatically, the coupon cannot be applied to subscriptions unfortunately.   

Is your coffee Fairtrade or Organic?

We go out of our way to ensure that our coffees are ethically grown, sustainable, and that fair prices are paid. Currently, most of our coffee collection is either Rainforest Alliance Certified, Organic, Fairtrade, or comes from a family run business with a focus on shade grown coffee plants, and sustainable farming practices. The higher prices we pay ensure that everyone in the supply chain has a good standard of living, and the farm owners are able to reinvest back into their communities and local economies. 

Is your packaging recyclable or compostable?

Not at this time, but we are working with our packaging supplier on a compostable solution. Watch this space.

Do you print the roast date on your packaging?

We are a small batch roaster, roasting every week, using the larger roaster for our blends, and the smaller roaster for our single origins. So the vast majority of our coffee is either roasted to order, or 1-2 weeks old as we hold very little inventory. And if we have any coffee older than 4 weeks, it goes on sale with a discount at the Espresso Bar in Georgetown. We know that some customers won't be happy not seeing the exact roast date, but rest assured your coffee will always be very fresh.
