Why choose Gourmet Coffee Xpress?

• Your coffee is freshly roasted when you place an order. Unlike many other coffee roasters and online sites, we roast our coffee daily so that it is fresh. When you order, your coffee will be roasted and shipped the very same day to ensure you with the freshest coffee possible. Other roasters pre-package or vacuum-seal their coffee; those coffees have been roasted days or even weeks in advance! Our coffee is heat-sealed in a valve bag, and here’s why.

When coffee is freshly roasted, it releases carbon dioxide for up to 48 hours. If we vacuum-seal fresh coffee immediately after roasting, the bag will explode because there is no way for the carbon dioxide to escape. Each bag has a valve that only lets air flow one way. It releases the carbon dioxide without allowing any outside air to come into the bag, so your coffee is guaranteed to be absolutely fresh.

• My Roaster, Pat is renown! Pat Lamastus’ family own’s a successful finca (coffee farm) in Panama and they nurture and grow the Award -Winning Elida Coffees in the high mountains. Lamastus family coffee is reviewed every year by Coffee Review and rated from the mid to upper 90’s.  

• My Coffee is Café Supremo! Gourmet Coffee Xpress is not an assembly line coffee site like the large guys. Every time you order, your coffee is hand-craft roasted in really small batches by Pat to assure that the flavor is perfecto in your cuppa. I use my small roaster because he’s an arteest. It may take a tad bit longer because he’s more interested in quality than pumping out the beans. But you’re certain to get just what you’re wanting!

• Custom shipping dates. No one wants old coffee! If you want all of your coffee orders to be fresh during the holidays, but also receive or ship them in time for the holidays, you can request that your order be shipped on a specific or later date. Simply enter your desired shipping date in the space provided, and let us do the rest.

• Variety. Are you unsure which coffees your recipient would like? Give them a sampler or gift set and let them try several different kinds at once. We have options available for every taste and budget. Check out our large collection of coffee and tea gift sets.
