Can I ship to multiple people at checkout?
Yes you sure can!  You will find a "Ship to Multiple Addresses" button on the checkout page.  I would recommend creating your DiscountCoffee.com account so this information is saved for future use and faster tracking. 

How do I return an item from my purchase?
The return process is very simple. First make sure that the product you wish to return is unopened and unused. Product that has been sampled is not eligible for return. As an example – I open my box of Hot Chocolate and I don’t like the flavor of the Dark Chocolate as well as I like a Milk Chocolate. I can’t return the opened box, but I can return the other 4 boxes in my order. So now I contact Customer Care either by email or phone and DiscountCoffee will provide me with My Return Authorization number. Now All I have to do is ship back the unused merchandise and I will get my refund for the product less a 15% restocking fee. (For More details click here.)

Do you carry Kosher products?
YES! You will see the Kosher designation on the merchandise product pages if it is so designated.  Look under the Nutritional Info Tab on each product page.  

I am a diabetic and am looking for sugar free products.
We have a very large selection just for you.  You will find nutritional tables on the product pages for many of the items we carry and we will try to include Sugar Free in the product Description to help with Search.

Can you explain Food Product Dating to me?
Sure.  According to the USDA, the dates put on food products are for the retail stores to help them determine how long to display a product for sale.  The Date is in no way a Safety Date for the consumer. Even if the date expires, a product should be safe, wholesome and of good quality - if handled properly. USDA Food Labeling

How long will coffee stay fresh?
Ground coffee starts to lose its flavor immediately unless it is specially packaged or brewed into a fresh hot cup of coffee. Vacuum sealed and nitrogen filled packaging is commonly used to protect freshly roasted and ground coffee. This type of protection will allow coffee to remain at its freshest for up to 6 months. Coffee will still be good for many months after that time so long as it is stored in a dry area. Do not store coffee in the Freezer as moisture will form inside the packaging and ruin the coffee.

Does DiscountCoffee.com ship to the Military?

Why was my order total split up on my credit card statement?
On orders shipped to more than one address, the order is processed as separate transactions on your credit card.  By splitting the order, this allows for more flexibility in selecting your shipping options.

Why did I not get Free Shipping on my order over $59.00 when I used a coupon?
All coupons and additional discount offers will reduce the shopping cart amount before shipping is calculated.  So if your order is $59.00 and you select Free Shipping, but then you add a $5.00 off coupon, your total will be reduced to $54.00 and the order no longer meets the promo requirements for Free shipping.  A quick way to check your totals is to review your shipping methods again before checking out and review your Order Total.

What is UHT or UHT Processed?
UHT stands for Ultra Heat Treatment. UHT is a process where any liquid is heated to approximately 145 degrees C and held there for at least 2 seconds.

UHT product, after heat treatment, is then sent to a sterile tank to give a buffer before the filling process is done. In a sterile atmosphere, the filling is done. The UHT packing machine flushes the item to be filled with Nitrogen and keeps the area within the filling heads flooded with Nitrogen to eliminate any air contamination. (Air is what is required for bacteria, molds, etc. to grow.)

The shelf life of a UHT product can be up to 1 year at ambient temperatures.

The UHT processing line (which encompasses the heat treatment to the high temp. and also a holding section) is the first part of the equipment required for UHT processing. The UHT plants are generally tube in tube, or direct steam injection and all the systems have a simple holding section that is matched to the specific product being held and required holding times.

The advantages of this process are that it allows products that were formerly considered to be perishable to have a shelf life anywhere from 12 to 24 months without refrigeration, depending on the exact product. The nitrogen flushed packaging also ensures a contamination free product with almost no loss of taste, quality or nutritional value.
