FAQ

IS THIS A RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION?

There are three ways of purchasing Gold Door Coffee Ltd.; a subscription, a gift, or a single-order.

Subscriptions are recurring orders, that charge and ship monthly. Gifts are one time purchases, shipping included, and include one 340g bag of featured roast delivered monthly for 'x' months purchased. Single-order purchases are one time orders of the current featured roaster, and shipped within two weeks of purchase.

CAN I GET MY COFFEE PRE-GROUND?

For the time being, we do not pre-grind our beans. Here's why:

“The first answer to why coffee usually tastes rancid in the cup, is that the customer has received stale beans, or worse, pre-ground coffee. When you grind coffee in a favourable environment, cool and moist like Seattle, it’s on peak for maybe 20 seconds.”

  • David Schomer - Co-Founder 'Espresso Vivace'

. . . That's all we have to say about that . . .

WHEN & HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY COFFEE?

Gold Door Coffee Ltd. partners with Canada Post business shipping solutions, and offers  heavily discounted flat-shipping options nationwide. To ensure freshness and reduce shipping emissions, Gold Door Coffee Ltd. orders & ships once a month. Cut off for subscription tally is at the end of each month. Orders are then shipped by the 15th of the next (every) month; meaning if you purchase during the month of January, your first delivery will be in February. 

WHAT COFFEE WILL I RECEIVE?

Gold Door Coffee Ltd. subscriptions are curated by our coffee sommelier, who hand selects a new Canadian small-batch roaster each month; meaning your coffee could be from Vancouver one month, and Montreal the next. Tasting profile, elevation, fruit processing, bean origin, farmer history, trade agreements, organic production, as well as Roaster history, community engagement and demand, are all factors in selecting an amazing bean each month.

HOW MUCH COFFEE WILL I RECEIVE?

You can select a subscription ranging from 1-4, 340g bags of whole bean coffee included. Gift options include a single 340g bag delivered monthly. Factors such as grind consistency, strength, and brewing method, all influence how many cups of coffee you'll get from a 340g bag; but it should make you approximately 33 cups of filtered coffee. 

HOW DO I DISPOSE OF MY PACKAGING?

Here's the best part, compost disposal is accessible across Canada. Every piece of packaging you receive from Gold Door Coffee Ltd. can be placed directly into these compost sites (either at home, or in your building). Both the coffee bag and mailer are re-sealable; we suggest filling these with your used coffee grounds, and then tossing the entire package in the compost the end of each month. Info cards and print work are done on plantable wildflower seed paper, that you can plant and watch grow. Additional eco info can be found on our ECO tab!
