We've been working diligently to help reduce the amount of waste in our packaging. And we're really pleased with our solution for our roasted coffee. This is how our environmental friendly packaging "breaks down".
227g - Stand-Up Pouch (net coffee weight)
[PHOTO] When you order a single bag of any of our coffees, you now receive it a bio-degradable bag. You can either put this bag in the paper recycling bin or remove the label and plastic valve (put the latter in the plastic recycling) and place in the compost (a fast composter is best). You can put it in the household waste bin, but we'd encourage you do try to make the small effort to recycle.
We use this net weight of coffee, as this single-amount purchase enable us to send it to you as a large letter. That way you save on postage costs and it will be delivered through a standard sized letter box whether you're in to receive it or not. No more "sorry-we-missed-you notes" and schlepping to the post office in the rain to collect you mcuh needed coffee. If you like this idea, why not save more money and become one of our regular subscribers with our flexible options paying as-you-go or up-front and pausing your subscriptions whenever you like.[ITALICS]
250g Retail Box (net coffee weight)
"WOW" indeed! We agree ... Just the most beautifully presented packing you're likely see in the coffee industry. And it's not just all aesthetically superficial. If you order more than 1 coffee on-line you get:
- 23g more coffee each bag for the same price, as it will fall under the parcel category for Royal Mail or courier - a small and more compact packaging solution for easy storage
1. DROPPING INTO THE ROASTERY IN PERSON If you drop in and see us with one of our bags you've previously bought, we'll either refill it with a fresh coffee and take 10% OFF this purchase or give you 1 free hot drink of your choice from our amazing Espresso Bar [PHOTO]
2. ZERO PACKAGING If you'd prefer to be packaging free, then you can drop by and have your coffee canister/tub/old sock fill with any multiple of 250g and we'll give you 10% OFF that purchase for not using any packaging. You can do this by post, by ordering on-line but please bear mind you'll need to add-on the weight of you canister and 100g for the recyclable postal box when checking out. Here's a guide, but drop us an email or call us if you need advice. Here's a basic Royal Mail Guide
3. RETURNING YOUR EXISTING COFFEE BAGS If you re-order on-lline and want us to refill the coffee bags you've previously purchased from us, we'll give you a *10% OFF the price of the coffee by issuing you that amount as refund on-line. (*excludes cost of postage)
STORAGE OF COFFEE
The 3 main killers of coffee freshness are AIR, MOISTURE and DIRECT SUNLIGHT. Do try to minimise the effects of these elements when storing your coffee. We recommend putting decanting your coffee in an air-tight canister (or if you have room simply putting the whole bag in it) and storing it a kitchen cupboard that's dry and away from the sun.
If you don't have a coffee canister, please use the ziplock if you get your coffee in the large, flat 227g stand-up pouch.
[PHOTO] If you have opted for the 250g box option, then simply pull or cut open the seal at the top of the bag containing the coffee and store it use a plastic bag seal clpip ("Klippit" type thingy).
DESPITE WHAT SOME DUMBASS COMPANIES MIGHT TELL YOU, DON'T KEEP YOUR COFFEE IN THE FRIDGE OR FREEZER. THE NATURAL COFFEE OILS WILL NOT LIKE THE MOISTURE AND YOU MIGHT JUST ADD TO THE NATURAL NOTES OF THE VARIETAL WITH HINTS OF CHEESE, LEFTOVER CURRY AND WHATEVER GROCERY PURCHASES YOU'VE RECENTLY MADE!
