Yes, some of our coffees are flavored. We use high-quality natural flavoring oils to infuse our beans with delightful tastes that complement their natural profiles.

Our coffee beans are sourced from sustainable farms around the world. We prioritize ethical sourcing and quality, ensuring each cup you enjoy is not only delicious but also responsibly made.

Ordering and Shipping

Orders are typically processed within 1-2 business days. Shipping times vary based on location but generally take between 3-5 business days.

Currently, we ship only within the United States.

Our Mission and Values

We named our coffees after banned books to celebrate the freedom of expression and the power of literature. Each blend is an homage to stories that have sparked conversations and challenged perspectives.

We donate 3% of our monthly sales to charities that support literacy and fight against book censorship. As our customer, you get to vote on which charity receives the donation each month.

Usage and Storage

To preserve freshness, store your coffee in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. An airtight container is ideal to keep the flavors intact.

Our coffee is best enjoyed within a month of opening. However, it can last longer if stored properly.
