General FAQs

What are the different coffee plans?

We have over 100 coffees at around 50 different price points. To try and keep things simple and to provide a consistent experience we have separated the coffee into 2 different pricing tiers. Standard tier: @ £7.99 which will typically have a lot of the blends and the more common single origin coffees. Exclusive tier: @ £10.99 will still have some the amazing blends but also some of the rarer and more complex single origins. The different pricing structure gives an entry point for customers who are new to speciality coffee or who prefer the fuller bodied coffees while also provided a pricing tier for those looking to explore the more delicate flavoured or slightly rarer coffees.

Can I pick my own coffees?

We do not currently offer bespoke subscriptions like this. We are working hard to bring this feature to our customers in the future.

When do you take payment?

You will be billed on the day you have subscribed and your account will then renew on a Monday – either every week, fortnight or month – depending on the delivery schedule you selected.

Where do you ship to?

We currently only ship within the UK, this is to ensure that all coffee reaches our customers in the freshest and best condition.

How does shipping work?

First of all, all our shipping is free of charge for our subscriptions. Shipping for single purchase orders is charged at £1.99. If when purchasing directly from our store, you order multiple bags from the same roaster as they can be placed in the same box only one shipping charge will be charged. If you order from multiple roasters, then multiple boxes will be sent so you will be charged multiple shipping charges. This is because all coffee is roasted to order and shipped directly from the roasters themselves.

What does ‘roasted to order’ mean?

To ensure that your coffee reaches you in the best possible condition we only roast it after you’ve ordered it. When taking out a subscription we manage this ordering process so the coffee is ordered and roasted as often as you would like (weekly, fortnightly, monthly). No one is ever sent old coffee or coffee which has been sat around. Please note that all our roasters process and ship your orders on Monday/Tuesday – from there it shipped on a 2nd class Royal Mail service. This means it’s delivered within 2-3 days, which gives the coffee time to rest – just the right amount so that it is at its absolute best the day it arrives at your door.

 

Managing my subscription

Can I change how often I receive my coffee?

Yes ….absolutely. Simply go to your account online and update your preferences accordingly.  Alternatively, you can contact us Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm via email on: support@beanscoffeeclub.com

My coffee is different from the one I was expecting?

Roasters often change their offerings based on what coffee is available at the time. Due to this, it is possible that on occasion a coffee displayed to you during the checkout process is not available when it comes to the time to ship. If a coffee is no longer available we will substitute it for a similar one, which is just as amazing and matched to your taste profile.

What if I don’t like my coffee?

Our personalised coffee subscription matches you to coffee that we think you’ll love but due to the huge variations in coffee flavours we can’t guarantee you will love them. We believe that exploring different coffees is fun and you will of course like some more than others. If you believe you have received a bad or unacceptable bag of coffee, please contact us – Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm via email on: support@beanscoffeeclub.com

Where is my coffee?

All our coffees are roasted to order and shipped every Tuesday, from there they take about 2-3 days to be delivered which gives the coffee time to rest – just the right amount so that it is at its absolute best the day it arrives at your door.

Single purchase order from shop

Why do I get charged shipping twice when buying coffee from different coffee roasters?

When purchasing coffee out of subscription/from the Beans Coffee Club store, shipping for single purchase orders is charged at £1.99. If when purchasing directly from our store, you order multiple bags from the same roaster as they can be placed in the same box only one shipping charge will be charged. If you order from multiple roasters, then multiple boxes will be sent so you will be charged multiple shipping charges. This is because all coffee is roasted to order and shipped directly from the roasters themselves.

Can I cancel my order?

All our coffees are roasted to order and shipped directly so we are unable to cancel any orders that have already been roasted. Cancellation requests should be received before the coffee has been marked as dispatched, which is 24hrs after you have received notification of your order/renewal.  If you have recently placed an order and need assistance then please contact our customer support team – Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm via email on: support@beanscoffeeclub.com
