Shipping Policy

International Shipping

As a small business, we offer international shipping by inquiry only at the auto generated rate from available carriers. Please note that depending on the destination, duties and fees may apply. We recommend you make yourself familiar with the additional fees before you order as we will not be able to refund an order or cover any additional fees once the order has been shipped out.

Due to so many issues with import and customs fees we had to turn off international shipping on the front end of our website. We can absolutely provide you a quote on the products you'd like and on the corresponding shipping. We ask you become familiar with your specific countries import policies as we will not be able to cover any additional fees that they may charge or any refunds should the items not make it to their destination for an error in shipping address or rejection of payment for import fees.

If this sounds feasible, please email us using the contact form below with the following information.

  • Desired products for order (include quantity, size, and grind type when applicable)
  • Destination address
  • Preferred email to send invoice to

How to Store Coffee

For optimal enjoyment of your Alma Coffee, we recommend ordering fresh and in whole bean. Once your coffee is in hand, we recommend consumption within 2 months of its roast date. Please note that this is a recommendation and not an expiration date, you can enjoy the coffee much longer than the recommended 2 month time frame.

For optimal storage we recommend storing your coffee in its original packing and using the resealable zippers. Alternatively, you can keep your coffee fresher longer by storing in one of our canisters with patented vaccum sealed technology.

Acid Sensitivity

Coffee naturally has acidity in it and we can not guarantee you won't experience acid sensitivity when drinking any coffee.

By controlling the entire coffee supply chain from farm to cup and consistently roasting fresh daily, we have gotten feedback that our coffee does not trigger acid sensitivity the way it is experienced with other coffee brands. If you are looking for a low acid coffee, we recommend checking out our medium and dark roast offerings for safe options with minimal acidity.

K-Cups and Single Serve Options

Staying true to our 3 key pillars; improving lives, sustainable practices, and extraordinary coffee, we do not offer disposable k-cups. Single use k-cups are generally made of cheap plastics and metals. When these products come in contact with hot water, micro-plastics and micro-metals make their way into your cup of coffee and then into your body. We recommend you check out re-usable k-cup options available online. Make sure you check compatibility with your current Keurig machine as one size does not fit all.

Flavored Coffee

All of our coffees have tasting notes which are natural flavors derived during its maturity at the farming level. Flavored coffee is very different. The process of flavoring coffee involves taking roasted coffee beans and covering them in a sugary and very concentrated artificially flavored syrup. If you are looking to add additional flavor to your coffee, we recommend using natural extract or simple syrups.
