FAQ

Do you have a question about who we are and what we do?  Perhaps the answer is here:

Do you have a webshop?

Yes!  It is here.

Do you have a retail shop?

Not at the moment, but several of our customers stock our beans and brewers for sale. Please see the list of where to try our coffee for your nearest location.

When will my coffee be roasted?

Order placed:  Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (up to midnight on Wednesday) will roast on Thursday.

Order placed: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday (up to midnight on Sunday) will roast on Monday.

When will my coffee ship?

We roast on Mondays and Thursdays and the coffee ships the day it is roasted.

When will my coffee arrive?

We ship all orders with Royal Mail as First Class postage.  In the UK this usually means next day delivery, but this is not guaranteed.

For overseas delivery times can vary greatly from 3 days to 3 weeks.  We are unable to track items once they leave the UK as they are in the hands of national postal services.  We are unable to guarantee a delivery date for overseas mail, but see more in our terms and conditions for enquiries about refunds.

Why do you sell in 350g bags?

We traveled a lot in the last couple of years, and during our travels we bought a lot of coffee.  We often felt that 250g was too little to really get to know a coffee, especially an espresso blend, and that 500g was too much.  One common size in the US was 12oz, which is 341g.  We really liked the size so thought we’d round it up to a nice even metric amount.  To avoid confusion there is a price per kilo listed on each coffee’s information page.

Why do you only sell whole beans and not ground?

A lot of what we love about the coffee is lost very quickly once it is ground.  Despite packing the coffee as well as we can we don’t feel confident that you would be getting everything the coffee is capable for if we shipped it ground.  Equally most brew methods are dependent on the correct grind.  We’d rather people ground their coffee at home, and could get the tastiest cup through which ever brew method they fancied that day.  We hope to have grinders in the shop very soon, and we’ll make them as cheap as we can.

Do you want to know what I thought of the coffee?

We really do!  We try and brew our coffees many different ways to see how they taste but we always want to hear what people thought – good or bad – about how our coffees taste.  If you’d like to leave some feedback we’d love to read it.

Where are you and can I come and visit?

The roastery is a production location for now and not serving coffee or selling retail packs for home.  Meetings regarding wholesale or other business opportunities are by appointment only and it’s best if you get in touch by email – info@squaremilecoffee.com

If you just want to pick up a bag or two of coffee for home we recommend you go through the webshop or  look up one of our customers who do retail. They are marked with a * on the Where to Drink Our Coffee page.

If you’d just like to pop in because you are interested in coffee then perhaps attending one of our tasting events might be the best way. Details of these will be listed on the blog as we schedule them.

Our address is 8 Pritchards Road, London E2 9AP.

We have put together a little list and map of  some of the places that serve our coffee, the link is here.
