Sourcing of Coffees/Teas:
We work to find only responsibly, sustainably, and ethically sourced beans and teas. This means we look into the grower and try to get to know them as best we can. We try to avoid corporate owned farms and prefer family owned farms or coops. We tend to order organic and/or rain forest friendly coffees but in order to assure quality, we reserve the right to order the best bean for the job, even if its not certified organic. When it comes to the coffee, we only order specialty grade coffee.
Specialty Grade Coffee:
We order only specialty grade coffee, which is the highest rating coffee can get. To be specialty grade the coffee must be almost entirely free of defects and standout in one attribute. You can learn more at the link below: http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/grade.htm
Dodger Coffee is small batch roasted by our roasting partner. The beans you order have been roasted with 2-5 days of shipping to assure maximum freshness. We suggest consuming the beans within 2-3 weeks of receiving them for ideal taste.

We have negotiated the best rates we can with our carriers. The carriers set the rate at checkout based on what's in your cart. We know for some of you its high. We ship all over the world, build your cart and see what options are available to you based on the weight of the package and where you are shipping to.
There are NO nuts in our facility. Some of you noticed that we say there are notes of nut mentioned on the bag in the coffee, that is from naturally occurring tastes in the coffee. In fact we don't add anything to the coffee at all!
The mugs SHOULD be dishwasher and microwave safe. The company we order from hasn't explicitly told us this but the original mug is a thick, 14 oz porcelain mug. As always, dishes that are hand washed tend to last longer.

The Cold Brew should be refrigerated as soon as you get it. Definitely refrigerate after opening to avoid secondary contamination. It is okay if the Cold Brew gets warm during transit to you.
Cold Brew Serving:
The Cold Brew is formulated by us Floridians to put in a glass full of ice so we can walk around town and when the ice melts the coffee will still taste good. This means the coffee comes out of the bottle a little stronger than we recommend if you are wanting to drink it straight without ice. Some people prefer that so we're good with those people, others may want to dilute it a bit with water, ice, or cream. There is no wrong way to drink coffee, if you add something to the cold brew and like it, great!
Whole Beans/Ground Beans:
When ordering the coffee beans, you can choose to have the beans come to you whole, or pre-ground. Whenever beans are ground, some of the oils start to deteriorate faster. For the best cup of coffee, we suggest ordering whole beans and grinding them yourselves with a "Burr Mill Grinder." We don't sell those today but a search on a site like Amazon for this will get you in the right neighborhood.
K-Cups are convenient, which is great. Unfortunately, we don't believe in throwing away a piece of plastic every time you want to make a cup of coffee so we won't be doing a deal with any K-Cup style packagers. However, if you have a Keurig style machine there is hope!
