To help make it simple to enjoy your favourite coffee we offer you the opportunity to create an account for any online purchases.

You know what we mean – don’t let others use your account, do not share your username and password and protect your device appropriately.
If you place an order, we reserve the right at any time to decline the order, we will let you know why and seek to find the best alternate solution for you if this very rare circumstance occurs. We will refund all monies received in relation to a cancelled order.
We do our best to give accurate pictures and descriptions of products on our website, but remember that everyone’s screen is different, so items might look a bit different in real life, and colours might vary slightly from how they look on screen.
Our website is built using WordPress' platform with an integrated webstore using Woocommerce’s ecommerce plugin and Stripe Payments for secure payment processing, these platforms allow us to sell great coffee for you to sip, share and enjoy.

6. Refund Policy
We want you to enjoy your coffee so if you have any concerns or things weren’t what you expected then please let us know. We don’t generally offer refunds for change of mind or because something isn’t to your taste, however if there is a quality issue we will make it right. We’ll always meet our legal obligations around refunds and returns.
All orders received are final and goods or service will be shipped as per the order form, so please make sure you double-check your address.

We do ask that you raise any issues promptly with us. If you don’t do this, we might not be able to offer a refund, especially if the delay means we can’t verify the problem.

Underground Coffee Roasters supplies coffee within New Zealand. If you live outside this region and would like to place an order please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance, and we will seek to find a solution that works for you.
Some orders might incur a customs or import duty, we are afraid to say we don’t have any control over these and don’t cover them in our shipping rate, these charges would be separate charges that you may need to meet.
