Frequently Asked Questions

What is your roasting schedule? 

We are currently roasting 1x per week on Wednesday and delivering the following day. All the orders that come in from the previous 6 days are all batched to be roasted on the same day. Individual and wholesale orders are all roasted together to save time and cut down on waste.

If you are local and selected the option for 'local delivery' at checkout, that means your order is likely to be delivered the Thursday after you've ordered. However, if you placed your order on Thursday - Saturday and we have your entire order in stock you may receive your order the same day. If we do not have your entire order in stock there is a chance it may be queued for the following week. There is also a chance that your order will be mailed in order to optimize our delivery routes.

What is a Rotating Coffee Subscription? 

Rotating Coffee Subscription was designed for people who are looking for variety and automatic ordering. You decide how much coffee you need (number of bags) and how often you'd like to reorder (frequency, 1-4 weeks). We do the rest. Get a different coffee every order and as new coffees come in, they're worked into the rotation automatically. The best part is, you save money because every bag, even the most expensive ones, are sold to you for the same price. Plus you get 50% off your first order when you subscribe. It's quite possibly the best deal around.

What if I don't like the coffee I received?

Hmmm... This is unusual. We've never actually dealt with this before... So, in the highly unlikely event you aren't happy with your coffee we will gladly replace it for you with another bag of your choice or, of course, issue a refund.

Is Young Buck Coffee a coffee shop?

No! Not that we have anything against coffee shops, they're just not part of the dream, at least for the foreseeable future. We believe doing a few things really well is better than trying to do everything. For now, we're highly content with being your exclusive coffee roaster. 

Where does your coffee come from?

I think there are a number of reasons people ask this question. I imagine some of you are asking "how do you really know where your coffee is coming from?" While others may be asking "where does coffee come from?"

Let's start with the second question. Most coffee is grown in the region of Earth 20 degrees above and below the equator known as the Tropic of Cancer. Often grown high upon the sides of mountains, coffee benefits from altitude, consistent temperatures, moderate shade and rainfall. 

The process of choosing a coffee, for us, begins by contacting one of the few highly curated importers we have built relationships with over the years who can offer us a variety of coffees at the level of quality we need. The majority of coffee arrives in America in some part due to a coffee importer (even when a roaster says "we source our own coffee..."). Importers are the ones who specialize in finding consistently great coffees across many growing regions, developing and maintaining the relationships with farmers and exporters, transportation and storage of coffee, all of which, if not done well, can have negative effects on the final flavor of the coffee. 

So, to the first question, our importers are chosen because they maintain a high degree of transparency and traceability in the coffees they provide. They often include stories and images of the relationships, families and farmers involved as a part of that transparency. When that information is relevant we will include it in our coffee descriptions as well. To the same point, countries of origin often have strict criteria for the labeling of exported agricultural goods. Farmers and coffee mills are very proud of what they produce and usually mark their jute bags with, among other things, their farm or washing station, country and region.

Will this coffee work with my home coffee brewer?

Yes! Our coffee works in most brewers including drip coffee makers, french press, espresso machines (having your own grinder is highly recommended), V60 and other pour over apparatus, moka pot, percolators etc.
