We currently offer two bag types: (1) Heat sealed foil laminate with degassing valves and (2) Kraft (brown) paper bags that are biodegradable. We now offer the paper bags in both 8oz - 16oz and 5LB sizes! The foil laminate bags will keep coffee tasting fresh roasted for up to three months (unopened). Coffees packaged in Kraft bags should be used within two weeks.
NOTE: As of 3/17/20 we are suspending Amazon Pay. In addition to accepting major credit cards and PayPal we do accept personal checks and money orders. If you would like to pay for an order with a check or money order choose that option in the shopping cart. You will then need to mail us the check. We do not ship orders paid by money order or check until we receive a money order, or a check has cleared.
We currently use PayPal to accept online payments. You can pay with either a credit card or a PayPal account. PayPal is one of the most secure online payment processors. They receive your credit card information, and we do not receive it directly (unless you place an order over the phone). Your credit card information is gathered in our secure shopping cart hosted by 3dcart.com, which is a respected third-party cart service with an excellent reputation for security. You will be transferred to a secure page prior to inputting personal information, or credit card data. You may view our SSL Security Certificate by clicking the Lock icon in your browser's URL field.
We use 3dcart, a third party shopping cart system, to receive internet orders. They are a trusted, secure online shopping cart host that is PCI Certified, and scanned daily for vulnerabilites by McAfee SECURE. McAfee SECURE performs thousands of vulnerability checks per day, so you can be sure your data is secure. When you proceed to checkout you will be taken to an encrypted page. The security certificate is provided by Geo Trust Inc. and uses High-Grade 128 bit encryption. We DO NOT store any credit card information for security purposes.

Many people have hailed our coffees as the best they've ever tasted! Not just the best organic, Fair Trade coffee, but the best coffee period. However, if for some reason you are not completely satisfied with your coffee, you have 14 days from the date the coffee was received to contact us via our Contact Us form. Please write "RETURN + Order Number" in the subject line to receive a Return Authorization Number (RAN); then return the unused portion of coffee for a full refund of the purchase price less any coupons and discounts. If there is an error with your order we will correct it promptly, or grant a full refund*.
ALWAYS check your shipping address! We cannot reship or refund orders shipped to incorrect addresses. If you find an error after an order is placed, please call 541-661-5563 as soon as you notice the error. We will do our best to help you get the order to the right place. Orders that are returned to us due to an incorrect address may be subject to a 20% restocking fee if you do not elect to cover reship costs.
* We do not accept returns on special orders, White Coffee, Sale Coffee, Fundraisers, or Feed the Farmers. We only accept returns on non-coffee items if they are damaged in shipping. Returned coffee must be shipped at buyer's expense.
Please Note: Travel mugs are to be hand washed only. We do not give refunds for flavored syrups or travel mugs unless we made a mistake in fulfilling the order. If damage in shipping has occurred we will file a claim with the shipper, and you will receive a refund once the claim is settled.
Unless specified otherwise, coffees will be fresh roasted (combo packs and retail size excluded) after you place your order. Coffees for gift baskets will be fresh (within a couple weeks), but may not be roasted immediately following the order due to logistical reasons. We bag our coffees in heat sealed foil laminate, one-way degassing valve equipped bags within hours of roasting. Coffee naturally emits carbon dioxide gas for several hours after roasting. This natural process flushes oxygen from the bag, thereby preserving the coffee. We normally roast on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and ship the following day. If your order is placed by 10:00 am PST on Tuesday, or Thursday your order will generally be roasted that day. We are closed all Federal Holidays and weekends as USPS and FedEx do not pick up. When Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday's are during weekdays we reserve the right to close the day before, and the day after to give our employees time with their families. If you have any questions about when your order will be roasted and shipped, please call our office Monday through Friday (541) 661-5563 between 8 am and 5 pm P.S.T.
We do not store, or share any credit card data. Credit cards are processed through PayPal, and we do not receive your card number. The only information we receive via email is the payment amount, type of credit card with last 4 digits and expiration, order description, cart number, customer comments and shipping address. We do not sell, or share this data (with one exception, see the following).

Reward Points / Coupon Code Use
The reward points redemption offers are offered at the discretion of the owners of Nectar of Life Coffee and are revocable for any reason deemed appropriate by Nectar of Life Coffee Company. Nectar of Life Coffee retains the right to remove points given during a transaction for coupon codes that are used more than once. For example, if you are already a member of the email list, and have redeemed the ONE-TIME coupon code for the 15% off, you may not use the code again. If the code is used again, and another account, and/or email is used in the sign up, all points earned during the transaction will be removed. Nectar of Life may remove points from an account if multiple accounts are created.
The reward point system is subject to change at any time without notice. Nectar of Life Coffee Company may, at will, discontinue the program if cases described above become more frequent. Nectar of Life is not in any way, shape or form required to financially compensate for lost points.
If you need a coupon code and cannot find one to use, rather than create a new account, or use a code you have already redeemed, you may call us and request a discount code. If one is a available, it will be issued to you. We offer all gift certificates, points, codes, and credits in good faith. We are a small business. Please be cool.
