Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the shelf life of coffee?


Once a sealed coffee bag is opened, it’s best to enjoy it within four weeks. However, you can extend the life of your coffee by limiting it’s exposure to air. A vacuum canister is a great way to keep your coffee fresher for longer.

Shoot over an email to and ask to Pause Your Subscription.

Are your coffees Fair Trade Certified?


Our coffee buyers proudly place a great amount of emphasis on quality and sustainability, both from an environmental and economic standpoint.

We purchase a number of coffees from Fair Trade certified cooperatives; however, many producers decide it’s in their best financial interest to channel their resources toward continued advances in quality and sustainability instead of the expensive process of certification. We like to factor a producer’s efforts toward greater quality as well as environmental and economic responsibility into our purchasing decisions, regardless of their certification status.

Moving forward, it is our intention not only to maintain, but to expand our efforts to search for the best sustainable coffees the world has to offer.

How should I store my coffee?


We recommend storing coffee in a cool, dry place, away from heat and light, in its original packaging, or an airtight container.

The levels of moisture present in the refrigerator and freezer can greatly accelerate flavor loss. We don't recommend storing beans in the refrigerator and can only recommend storage in the freezer under specific circumstances (namely long term, uninterrupted periods).

For a more in-depth look into coffee storage (including the tips when using a freezer), take a look at the article we posted on our blog, “How to Store Coffee Beans”.

Are your coffees Certified Organic?


Mocha Tribe’s roaster in Los Angeles, CA is Certified Organic by CCOF, following all protocols and systems required to maintain this certification.

Do you ship to my country?


Coffee subscriptions are currently only available in the US but we will be delivering globally soon.
