International shipments are sent with PostNL and local couriers and will also be received within 28 days, while it is usually quicker than this shipping times can vary from country to country. Within the EU, the estimated delivery time is 2 days.

For all orders to the Netherlands of 60 Euros and up, no shipping charge will be applied.
For all EU orders of 150 Euros and up, no shipping charge will be applied.*
Worldwide shipping is available upon request.

* Some countries like Romania, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Cyprus follow worldwide shipping rules due to the high shipping fee.

Some countries may induce additional costs or waiting times for importing coffee; this is the customer’s responsibility and no refunds will be given for delayed shipments. Exceptions can be made  in certain circumstances like missing or damaged packages. Additional charges due to incorrect address details are also the customer’s.

Returns/Cancellation Policy

Because of the expiring nature of the goods, no returns are accepted. When the customer does not agree with the delivered quality or when the delivered products are damaged or faulty, the customer can contact the company in a timely fashion to address the issue. The company may then decide to give a refund, send out replacement products or take different, appropriate action. Also, where a consumer exercises his cancellation rights the customer will be given a refund within 30 days of their cancellation. For orders paid for by Paypal or Credit card, the payment service provider’s fee will be deduced from the refund.


On the rare occasion where a month’s coffee does not arrive on a gift subscription we will be happy to offer either a replacement coffee or add an additional month to the subscription if this information is communicated within 28 days from shipping day.

In the case of recurring subscriptions the option of a suitable replacement coffee or a refund will be applied where an installment doesn’t arrive, provided this information is communicated within 28 days from shipping.
