     Carmen Gagnay is a coffee producer who owns La Fortaleza, a 4-hectare farm with 3 hectares planted in coffee, primarily Bourbon and Sidra varieties. This lot is comprised of the Typica variety.  It is a very famous variety of Arabica coffee that is susceptible to leaf rust and disease but has excellent cup quality.  Carmen used to work at Nestlé, but now she and her son have committed themselves to growing specialty coffee. Among the coffee trees, there are also other plants, such as yuca, beans, corn, and sugar cane. This is our first time buying coffee from this farm, and its a real standout.  Deceptively smooth and rich with just the right amount of underlying complexity and citric sweetness.  Its a joy to start your morning with this one.

We ship freshly roasted coffee Monday through Friday via UPS ground. Most orders placed before 2pm EST will ship same day.

Delayed, Lost or Stolen Packages 

We will do our best to help troubleshoot with you, but we
cannot control what happens when your package leaves the roasting
facility. Once the package has been picked up, it is out of our hands. 

Holidays, severe weather, carrier staff shortage and high package volumes are causing delays in package transit time. 

As a small business, we are unable to absorb the costs of
packages being lost in transit. We cannot refund orders that are marked
as delivered with a tracking number, even if a customer is stating they
haven’t received the package. 

For UPS claims, please email us at georgio@georgioscoffee.com

When checking out, *Please make sure your address is correct!*

In order to balance getting your coffee out to
you as quickly as possible with freshness of roast we ship all coffee as
ordered within one week of the roast date. We typically roast
Wednesdays and Fridays.

In our experience most coffees
taste best after a few days rest, and high quality coffees stay at peak
flavor up to six weeks post roast.
