FAQ's

In a nutshell, how does the odd coffee co work?

The Odd Coffee Company is the first of its kind in our amazing industry. What we do is rescue fresh, surplus coffee from premium coffee roasters in the UK.

But what does rescue coffee actually mean?

When we say we ‘rescue premium coffee’ we mean we purchasing fresh surplus coffee off the roaster that they cannot sell, helping them to reduce their waste. For example; If a mid-sized coffee roaster has to supply a retail shop with 100 bags of coffee. They might roast enough beans for 110 bags in case there are any complications in the roast such as unforeseen shrinkage. The left over beans are called the surplus, while some of this might go into the coffee shop to be turned into flat whites, some gets wasted. If the roaster has a healthy wholesale business, the shop might not be able to turn all the ‘surplus’ coffee into flat whites and you can soon imagine how much premium coffee is potentially wasted across the entire coffee industry. This is where we come in, we buy the fresh surplus coffee of the roaster for a very fair price, repackage it and sell it to you for a fraction of its normal price. So there you have it, rescued coffee isn’t swept up off the floor, it’s not burnt off gone off and sadly it’s not from a farm run by little Lego men. It’s premium, roasted coffee, recused and repacked for you.

Is your packaging recyclable?

YES! All of our packaging is 100% recyclable at home. A box of Nespresso compatible coffee pods arrives in a beautifully made cardboard box that is 100% recyclable. Our Nespresso coffee pods, are infinitely recyclable as they are 100% aluminium and 0% plastic. All you need to do is scoop out the ground coffee and chuck the casing in the can recycling box. Check out our instagram @Theoddcoffeeco for a few how to guides! The Odd Coffee Co's freshly ground and whole bean coffee comes in nitrogen-flushed 100% recyclable bags. To ensure your coffee is fresh and great for the environment.

How fresh are the whole beans and ground coffee?

The whole bean coffee and ground coffee is as fresh as you would buy in your local coffee shop, or supermarket. The coffee isn’t off the roast long at all by the time it enters an Odd Coffee package. Any spare coffee for the Odd Coffee Company is bagged up at the same time as the coffee made for the retail store – for instance, if a coffee roaster is making 100 bags for a retail store, the extra 10-20g of coffee that is roasted as a contingency is then packaged into bags for us at the same time. It’s then delivered to us to almost the same timescale as the roaster’s end retail client, so the consumer isn’t having coffee that’s been in packaging longer. It's important to note that all of our products are also nitrogen flushed, so the pods contain less than 1% oxygen to keep their freshness for longer.

Why are the beans rejected by the coffee companies?

Despite having minor imperfections that don't impact the quality or taste, the Nespresso compatible coffee pods are often rejected due to strict cosmetic and quantity requirements set by supermarkets and retail trade. These minor imperfections can include a small dent or a scratch on the pod. In terms of the beans, the wastage is often caused due to suppliers roasting more beans than needed in case there are any complications in the roast. For example, if a mid-sized coffee roaster needs to supply a retail outlet with 100 bags of coffee, the business will roast enough beans for 110 bags. Then, whatever is left, traditionally went to waste – but the mission of the Odd Coffee Company is to purchase the surplus from the roaster for a fair price, repackage it, then sell it for a fraction of the normal price. The coffee isn’t off the roast long at all by the time it enters an Odd Coffee package. Any spare coffee for the Odd Coffee Company is bagged up at the same time as the coffee made for the retail store – for instance, if a coffee roaster is making 100 bags for a retail store, the extra 10-20g of coffee that is roasted as a contingency is then packaged into bags for us at the same time. It’s then delivered to us to almost the same timescale as the roaster’s end retail client, so the consumer isn’t having coffee that’s been in packaging longer.
