- Why buy coffee from you guys?
There are many roasters out there, but few with our experience or point of view. We’re aiming to make our mark with uncompromising blends and select single-origin releases of the best available green coffees, meticulously roasted. We cut no corners. We can try and tell you why it’s so good, but we’d much rather show you. Give us a shot.
- How do you ship?
The United States Postal Service First Class Mail. The USPS has been here doing it’s thing since our country was in diapers and it’ll probably be the last thing still working when the rest of our nation crumbles like that post-apocalyptic movie The Postman (1997) starring Kevin Costner. We'll send you tracking info for each shipment.
- Hey, I bet this would make a great gift, right?
Oh heck yeah, for any occasion. And we make it easy too.
- How many cups of coffee does 250g make?
It depends. In our home brewing methods we’re typically using about 15g of beans for each 8oz cup of coffee—so a bag of Yes Plz yields roughly sixteen mugs of brew. We love giving brew tips so hit us up and let us know what methods you’re using.
- What if I need a lot of beans?
Our product is a one-size-fits-most experience, but we recognize many people’s scenarios require more bulk, particularly larger households and office environments. There are a lot of good coffee roasters out there better equipped to serve those niches and we’ve not set out to be every customer’s end-all-bean-all experience. If you’re finding your needs exceed our current capabilities, drop us a line and we’ll happily suggest some favorite roaster colleagues to augment your arsenal.
- What is your roast style?
Always delicious. The lightness or darkness of a roast is just one of many factors that affect your coffee and we encourage folks to explore broadly before deciding that only one style is correct. We’re lighter than some, darker than others; the lighter side of “medium” sounds right, but everyone is grading on different curves.
- Why so many blends?
Single origin coffees are, quite rightly, where the action is. The last decade or so of advances in the quality coffee universe have come about because of our devotion to the distinctive details of individual selections from top farms. Recognizing the unique flavors imparted by the variety of plant, the climate and terroir of the farms, and the craftsmanship of the producers has brought us very far. But, from a culinary perspective, blending opens up vast realms of possibility we can’t help but explore. The truth is that there’s not a single origin coffee anywhere that couldn’t be made even better with just a bit of judicious blending.
- Do you ship outside the U.S.? Do you offer decaf?
Nope, not just yet. Email us and let us know you’re interested and we’ll keep it on our to-do list.
