Loving our new twines in soft blush, mint and pale yellow. Spring has finally arrived.
Gearing up for spring in our little shop! Tulips do the trick-tulips and a coffee subscription for the year so you always have a fresh roast for sipping on your early spring morning musings.
Tea favors make a relaxing gift for quietly sipping, thoughtfully, later. Here is our favorite of the moment-an herbal berry cleansing brew.

About

About us.

We started with explanations to the neighbors that the house was not on fire. Well, we REALLY started with the nutty idea that I could roast coffee at home, and THEN we spent a lot of time yelling out, "it's okay! nothing is burning!" as local heroes, seeing the smoke, sprinted into our backyard to rescue me. I live in a really great neighborhood and there are LOTS of heroes. Now they are customers (or skeptical on-lookers). Three years in and I think people really enjoy smelling the coffee roasting early in the morning on our little cul-de-sac in Richmond, VA.

The wedding favors were a total accident and so was finding Etsy but we're very open to happy accidents around here. I did coffee favors for a friend's wedding, as a gift, and couldn't find small, nice looking bags so I made my own. Then another friend wrote "look up Etsy" on a napkin and gave it to me, so here I am selling coffee wedding favors on Etsy when I previously didn't know how to create a new file on my computer and generally shied away from weddings and other scary, big events.

Most exciting is the new spot we're opening in the downtown business district. There we will have a REAL coffee shop and a larger roaster to keep up with our orders! We will miss our pretend coffee shop (the tiny kitchen where friends come over to watch me roast and then to brew up a pot) but now we'll have space for more friends to pull up a bar stool and tell me all about their mornings over freshly roasted joe.

Thank you for looking into Apropos Roasters! We are a small (very small) company that started because we wanted to focus on beans and show others how you can have excellent coffee, right at home. We know where our beans come from and only purchase coffee that we determine is fairly traded and of high quality. We then study how to best roast this bean in small (very small) batches and after a few over-caffeinated test runs we bring you the best, most affordable and freshest coffee available, packaged in recyclable or reusable materials for less waste and more flavor!

While coffee is considered a non-perishable item by most, we don't think so! (In fact, we strongly disagree.) All of our coffees are roasted to order and we never have old coffee just sitting on a shelf. When asked how to best store coffee we tell people "Don't store it! Drink it! And for goodness sake, don't put it in the fridge!" Your beans will be fine sitting on your counter in the bag we send it in, or in a fancy tin or jar. Try to drink your freshly roasted coffee within the month and treat it as you would a vegetable that looses flavor and nutritional value the older it gets.


**Please see our shop policies for shipping details and FAQs.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We accept Debit/Credit cards, PayPal, personal checks and money orders. If paying with a check or money order, please note that we must wait for it to clear before starting on your order.

If you need an order rushed, please contact us prior to purchasing. Please do NOT put that you need it rushed in the notes to seller.
Shipping
Your order will ship to the address listed on the Etsy Invoice unless otherwise noted in the "notes to seller" box at checkout.

Apropos uses both USPS and UPS to ship items. Tracking is ALWAYS provided for wedding favors and orders over $100. We do not provide tracking for stamps or coffee subscriptions to keep shipping costs as low as possible. If you would like tracking, insurance or delivery confirmation for your order it is your responsibility to request it at the time of purchase and additional costs may apply. We strongly suggest adding insurance for international orders as we do not take responsibility for lost or damaged items once they have left the US.

WEDDING ORDERS: Wedding favor orders of over 50 favors will ship UPS and require an indirect signature. (We do this so that they are not left out in the elements, if you would like us to waive the signature, please specify during checkout in the notes to seller box.)

STAMPS: Stamps ship USPS First Class. We do not offer tracking for stamps unless specifically requested. International orders have taken up to a month to arrive, please plan accordingly or contact us for a speedier shipping method.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
We DO ship internationally however we cannot provide tracking on these items and therefore we do not accept responsibility if they are lost. Orders going to Brazil, Australia and Spain have taken up to 5 weeks to reach their destination. If you would like us to use UPS so that you may track your package or if you would like insurance for your package we are happy to do this, please convo us prior to ordering for shipping quotes.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the nature of our products, Apropos does not accept returns. We do assure you, however, that if something happens to your package before you receive it (i.e. it is damaged in the mail), we will replace the item(s) immediately.

FOOD ITEMS: We do not offer refunds for any food item but we will always replace the item immediately if it is damaged or lost. Because we sell food items, please understand that we do our best to provide the tastiest experience possible for each customer however, we are not responsible if you simply do not like the taste of an item. We hope you understand. Please feel free to ask us any questions prior to purchase so we may best serve your specific, wonderful taste-bud needs!

WEDDING and FAVOR ORDERS: We understand this is a very special (ahem, hectic!) time for you and so we will work with you prior to shipping your favors to determine the best shipping date and method of shipping. All favors are shipped to the address listed on your Etsy invoice. If you need to change this information, it must be done at least three days prior to your ship date and we prefer that you call us at 804.343.2034 to make sure things are in order. Apropos does not offer refunds for customized orders and we cannot accept returns. If for some reason your favors do not arrive or arrive damaged, please call us immediately so we can find the best and fastest solution to the problem.

CUSTOM ORDERS:
We always provide a proof before beginning custom orders (including favors and stamps). Proofs will look exactly as the stamp will. Once your proof is sent to you, please respond within the week if changes are necessary, otherwise we will assume you've accepted it and move forward with the order. If you have approved an incorrect proof, we will not refund the order so please be extra sure to look over everything before giving us the go-ahead.

Additional policies and FAQs
We are a licensed business in the state of Virginia, compliant with the state laws.

FAQ:
Why doesn't the coffee packaging look like coffee bags in the grocery stores? Will it be fresh?
The simplest answer to this YES! Our unique packaging doesn't look like the "usual grocery store bag" because it isn't meant to sit on a shelf. The bags you see in stores are designed and sealed so that the beans can be kept sitting around for months, or even years. Coffee is considered "non-perishable" and therefore no expiration date is required but the taste of old coffee is certainly evident. Our coffee comes to you freshly roasted, dated, wrapped in food safe, recyclable materials. In short, you have the best coffee, less waste and there is no need for fancy, wasteful bags and plastics because you are going to drink that coffee, not put it on a shelf!
