General Questions

We offer both organic and conventional offerings. For clarity on where to find organic only products, please check out our Organic menu items.

Yes! All coffee shipped from both roasting facilities is Kosher-certified by KSA.

Yes! Our coffee is naturally nut-free and gluten-free, and we do not process any other food products in our roasting facilities.

· We ship whole bean coffees because it helps maintain freshness, and we believe great coffees are at their best when brewed within 30 minutes of grinding. Also, we want the grind size to fit your brew method and flavor preference perfectly, and once you grind, there’s no going back.

· Our only ground product is Single-Serve.

· Please note, there are many great price-sensitive home grinders on the market; if you’re looking for a recommendation, please contact our CX team at or visit our friends at Baratza.

· We do not currently carry certified bird-friendly offerings, but many of the coffees we offer are grown in diverse shade habitats.

· Fun fact, Fred Houk, our co-founder, was a bird-enthusiast, and CCC offered one of the first bird-friendlycoffees on the market back in 1997— Sanctuary. This coffee and programming paved the way for our sustainability department. While we still appreciate Bird-Friendly efforts, we have shifted our sustainability focus from certification-centered to transparency-centered. For more info on our farm relationships and social and environmental sustainability projects, please check out our transparency report found here: Transparency Report

We do not accept returns on coffee due to its perishable nature. However, if you have any issues with your coffee or errors in your order, please contact us at within four weeks of receiving your order, and we will find a solution.
