Damages

When you receive delivery of a package from us and the contents have been damaged in transit, please do not accept delivery of the item, rather advise the courier to return the package to Maria's Coffee at the below address.

Coffee Returns

We sell perishable products, therefore we do not accept returns where there is no issue with the quality of the product which you have received. We cannot, unfortunately, guarantee that what you order will be to your liking, so please only order small quantities if you’re uncertain about a new coffee you’re trying for the first time. Please remember to use your beans when they are fresh (within 4-6 weeks of roast) for the best results.

 

If you suspect there is a quality issue with what you have received, please let us know by contacting us at info@mariascoffee.co.za.

We will happily liaise with you for a replacement.
