How can I give feedback about my experience to Dairy Beanz?


We put our heart and soul into everything we do, from green beans selection, roasting, packaging, and delivery is the best we can make it at this stage, we will strive to do better.


If you have some feedback about your coffee purchase or online experience, please contact us, we are always here for you.


Please feel free to email us at, if you have a taste complaint we will replace any coffee beans that do not come up to scratch-free of charge.


150 g or 1 kg?


How much coffee you need depends on the brewing method you use and how much coffee you consume each day.

Fresh roast coffee beans are essential to a quality cup, so buy your coffee in small amounts, ideally every two weeks.

*We recommend a ratio of 30 g of coffee grounds for every 500 ml water for plunger or paper filters. Commonly use between 15-20 g per double shot for espresso machines.


Whole Beans or Coffee Grinds?


Full flavor starts with fresh coffee, we recommend starting with whole beans and grinding them fresh every time you brew. Always use a burr grinder ( flat or conical ) to grind your coffee, NOT blade grinders. We encourage you to invest in a quality coffee grinder if you haven't already. That being said, if you need coffee grinds we are happy to pre-ground for you. It’s worthwhile noting that we use a generic grind setting for each brewing style that is designed to suit most people. There is always an exception where our designated setting will not match your requirements. This is one of the limitations of pre-grinding coffee. If you're having trouble with the grind of your coffee, please get in touch


How to store coffee?


The best way to preserve your coffee fresh is to store them in an opaque, airtight container away from sunlight, heat, and moisture at room temperature.

*Grind them fresh every time you brew.
*Don’t store your beans in the fridge/ freezer.
*Don't drop all beans in grinder hopper to get stale waiting for your grind.

We’re happy to help you with any coffee brewing or storing questions you might have, just send us an email.


How long will coffee stay fresh?


The beans generally are good from day two for the filter coffee, about a week old beans are at their peak for the espresso coffee, and then begin declining in quality after 2-3 weeks. This doesn't mean your coffee goes off after 2 weeks, it's just not quite as flavorful. Drink to your taste and taste every day to get a sense of where the beans go and what you prefer.
