Atlas Coffee Club FAQ
Is Atlas Coffee fair-trade?
Yes, every coffee product Atlas uses has been verified as Fair Trade and checked for sustainability. Buying Fair Trade, says Atlas, ensures a fair wage for the growers and producers of what is a premium, specialty-grade coffee. And this, in turn, incentivizes the producers to invest in their coffee beans’ quality and sustainability.
Should the coffee have a vacuum seal?
Some Atlas Coffee Club reviews have questioned that the coffee bags arrive without being vacuum sealed. According to Atlas, a vacuum seal is not needed for their coffee as it is roasted to order and is as fresh as you can get it through a shipment service. Their website states: ‘a vacuum seal is only needed when buying coffee off the grocery store shelf where the coffee has been sitting for weeks if not months.’
Does Atlas Coffee Club offer decaf?
Atlas Coffee Club does have decaf on its menu, and you can sign up for a specific decaf plan. However, they only offer their decaf coffees as a medium roast, although this could change in the future.
How fresh is Atlas coffee?
Well, as fresh as a shipped coffee can be! Each batch is roasted to order on the morning of shipment, so it is no more than a few hours old before winging its way to you. Atlas recommends waiting around a week after its roast before brewing its coffee; it is that fresh! This wait is to give the coffee time to de-gas and release any carbon dioxide stored inside the bean to ensure the grind offers its optimum flavor. Luckily, with the shipment time, you are getting the freshest and tastiest coffee.
