Accordingly, The Highland Coffee Roastery shall not be liable for any damage suffered or loss incurred by reason of any acts or omissions of the deliverer, it’s owner, employees, sub-contractors, agents, representatives and/or affiliates.

Returns / Refund Policy
Unfortunately as coffee is a perishable product we don’t accept returns unless there is an issue with the quality of the product. As coffee preference is personal we can’t guarantee that each person will enjoy their choice as people have their own personal tastes. We suggest using your beans while fresh, to guarantee the best taste. (Up to 6 months from roast date)
We roast our coffee using only high-quality beans and roasting methods, so there should be no issues with the quality of our coffee. If however, you believe there is a serious issue with the quality of the coffee that you have received from us please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will organize a replacement.
Questions about the Terms and Conditions should be sent to us using the contact form on our home page.
