Our Delivery Policy

Where do we deliver?

We would deliver to Mars if we could – to reach the whole of the universe with good coffee, but it is not that simple – so for now we deliver to:

UK: Channel Islands, Isle of Man, British Forces Post Office.

Europe: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden.

How long will it take?

We do not work at weekends so the term working day means Monday to Friday. If you place an order on the weekend it will not be sent out until Monday.

All orders placed before 13:00hrs 'normally' go out the same day. We do not guarantee orders go out the same day as ordered.

Royal Mail - You can order up to 2kg (7 x 250g bags) using Royal Mail first or second class - orders over 2kg will be sent using Interlink Next Day

UK Mail Next Day  - using this service you can order up to 10kg (38 x 250g bags) will ensure your order gets to you the next working day once the order is despatched from the roastery.

If you use this service you maybe required to sign for the delivery unless you elect to take responsibility for loss if left in a safe place. You will receive an email update from UKMail with a one hour delivery window and using the consignment number you track your order.

How do we keep you updated as to the status of your order.

Once you have placed your order you will receive 2 status updates - they will be:
Order confirmation – this means we have received your order and the coffee is yet to be roasted.
Shipped confirmation – this means your order has left our roastery by your chosen method.

Do we meet our delivery deadlines?

We try our best to meet the delivery deadline quoted, but on the odd occasion a parcel can be delayed due to reasons that are out of our control.

Why don't we offer free postage?

Nothing is free in life. We know you all love free postage and sometimes we do offer it as part of a promotion, but it is our policy to charge for postage. We have considered offering free postage but the costs would have to be absorbed elsewhere by you the customer. We don’t hide our postage costs.

Missing, Damaged or Incorrect Orders

We try very hard to ensure you receive your order in pristine condition. If you do not receive all your products or in the unlikely event that a product arrives damaged, please contact us via the email address within the 'contact us' section of the website.

Please note: Royal Mail does not class an international shipment as lost or missing for 28 working days unfortunately we can not take any action until this time has passed.  During that time we recommend that you ask your local sorting office / post office if they've tried to deliver (even if they haven't left a card) and ask your neighbours if your order has been left with them.  You should also check that the delivery address you gave us is correct, this can be found on your shipping confirmation email.  If your delivery still hasn't arrived after 14 working days and you have performed the above steps then please email us.

Change of Mind, Address and Cancellations

You can cancel your purchase at any time either before or up to 7 working days* following the day you receive the goods by emailing us at the address shown in the 'contact us' section of the website.

Your product must be complete and in 'as new' condition e.g. if you have opened the postal packet to examine the product you must have done so without damaging or marking the product or packaging. It must not have been used and it must  have the heat seal still in place. It should be returned with the original postal packet and packing note you received with it.

Please note that orders that have been ground to order (e.g - not whole roasted beans) may be exempt from our usual returns policy, as these represent a customised special order item. Any 'Free Gifts' received with the product must also be returned. Coffee Real will not refund the cost of postage incurred in returning a item.

If you follow the steps above you will receive a full refund of the product price and any delivery charge paid.

We cannot cancel your purchase when:

To qualify for a refund or exchange the product must be:

In otherwise "as new" condition; and complete with any free gifts offered with it and, if possible, the original box and packaging.

Additional Information

This farm, which has been in the family since 1890 and is a 1st place producer of 2011 Brazil Cup of Excellence.

It is located exactly on Minas Gerais state line and has characteristics from the mountainous areas of Mogiana and from Sul de Minas. With a total area of 480 hectares, Fazenda Rainha has a coffee plantation area of 190 hectares. On this farm everything is done manually since its topography does not allow any kind of mechanization.

Social and environmental sustainability is considered very important here. The owner has a program of planting native species to keep a better ecological balance. The farm has a school van to take children to school, a club and an official size soccer field for the employees' benefit. There are 25 houses, all with modern facilities. The wastewater is treated to avoid polluting the stream that runs across the farm.

The altitude is between 1150m and 1350m and the precipitation is between 1800 and 2000mm per year with an average temperature of 19C, ideal conditions for coffee.
This farm is still producing "Bourbon" coffees, famous for their exceptional quality. In the region there are bourbon trees that are 107 years old.

Coffee is picked by hand on to sheets to avoid the cherries coming in contact with the soil. As soon as the cherries are picked they are transferred to the processing area  to avoid any pre fermentation and it is immediately washed and sorted, then transferred to the terraces to dry in the sun.

The cherry is dried on a terrace until the coffee reaches 20% moisture. At this stage the beans are transferred to driers for their moisture level to be reduced to 11%. Subsequently, the coffee is transported to the warehouse - which maintains the correct moisture levels and is free of odors that may affect coffee.

The quality of the coffees produced at Fazenda Rainha is the result of dedication and care from planting the trees to harvesting and then processing. The work performed by Regina Helena Mello de Carvalho Dias and her family to produce distinct quality cups have led the coffees produced at her farm to be one of the finalists of the Cup of Excellence Contests in many years.
