Community Funded Coffee Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not sure what size subscription my household needs, will you explain the sizes?

Sure thing! Have a look at our size guide:

one 12 once bag of coffee

Small: you’ll receive one 12-ounce bag per month for the duration of your subscription. Will last about 1-2 weeks for 1-2 people. Ideal for the subscriber who wants to try out CFC but may still grab a coffee at Guilder Cafe some days.

 

 

two 12 once bags of coffee

Medium: you’ll receive two 12-ounce bags per month for the duration of your subscription. Will last about 3-4 weeks for 1-2 people. Ideal for the subscriber who wants to have their daily cup of coffee made at home.

 

 

three 12 once bags of coffee

Large: you’ll receive three 12-ounce bags per month for the duration of your subscription. Will last for 4-6 weeks for 3-6 people. Ideal for families, small businesses and coffee enthusiasts.

 

 

Why are your subscriptions organized into quarters and what does that mean?

During our pilot year of Community Funded Coffee, we plan to partner with a different coffee producer each quarter (every 3 months). You have the option to subscribe for a minimum of 3 months (1 quarter) and up to 1 year (4 quarters). You will receive the selected amount (see size guide) of coffee per month for the duration of your subscription.

Can I change my subscription preferences after signing up?

Yes. You can log into your account at any time to make changes by clicking this link.

 

 

Why should I subscribe to CFC and not a regular coffee subscription?

Based on a produce CSA model, subscribers to CFC are taking part in an initiative to help support coffee growers by pre-financing a portion of their coffee crop. That’s pretty great, we think.

 

 

What happens if the coffee crop I’ve subscribed to doesn’t do well due to adverse climate events, etc?

We’ve got you covered! CFC is committed to ensuring you receive the equivalent of your order from our partnering coffee roaster, Junior’s Roasted Coffee, in the case of crop failure or supply chain disruptions.
