Who We Are / FAQ
Welcome to Emery Coffee Company! We have some of the best award winning coffee roasters that you will find anywhere all on one convenient site. Sample coffees from any or all of our artisan roasters with a single checkout and flat rate delivery to home or office.
For our roasters coffee is not a job, it is a journey in constant pursuit of the best handpicked coffee cherries in the world. Join them as they travel the globe in search of the perfect bean, the perfect roast, the perfect cup. Single origin coffees, specialty coffee blends, awesome espressos - you are sure to find your perfect cup right here. Your gourmet coffee beans are fresh roasted to order and shipped the very same day, direct from the roaster to you. We even offer coffee subscriptions.
Emery Coffee is located in Maryville, which is nestled in the rolling, wooded foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee, about 20 miles south of Knoxville. We were established in 2012 with one goal....to offer the best coffee beans we could find on one easy to use website so that you can start (or end) your day with an amazing cup of coffee.
To that end, we are proud to offer our current selection of award winning roasters. Their coffees have been praised in customer reviews, by www.CoffeeReview.com (the premier coffee rating service), won Good Food Awards, and several roasters themselves have been honored as Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine. Many of our roasters are involved in direct trade with the farmers themselves, effectively changing lives and ensuring quality coffee beans. As artisans, they then roast the coffees in such a way to highlight the flavors within the bean itself. This all culminates when you brew your coffee at home and that moment that creates a coffee experience.
We want you to experience what coffee can be.

SEE WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT EMERY COFFEE!
"Great service and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!"
"My order arrived on time and the coffee was excellent!"
"Excellent coffee and customer service. Will be ordering again!"
"Fast shipping, love my coffee, great price."
"This is probably the first coffee that read, "roasted as ordered," that actually did so. It was extremely fresh when it arrived. The flavor lock let out beautiful and rich aromas. At first, based on the smell I thought it might be too bold but when I opened it the beans were medium roasted & the flavor notes were well defined and not overpowered by boldness at all. It's rich w/ a cedary sweetness."
"Cannot wait to buy more, thanks!"
"Perfect birthday gift for a coffee lover."

Q: Fresh Roasted...does it really matter?
A: There’s a significant difference in taste between beans roasted a few days ago and those roasted last month or even months ago. Taking a look at the consume-by date on a bag of coffee at the supermarket might just send you into shock. Vacuum packing and one-way valves only do so much. Technology can’t improve freshness. Coffee is at its best when made from beans roasted no more than two weeks ago.
Q: Why do you recommend whole bean (and not ground) coffee?
A: In keeping with our commitment to provide you with the best coffee experience possible, we offer only whole bean coffee. Oxygen is the enemy of fresh coffee as it compromises the longevity and quality of the coffee. Whole bean coffee can stay fresh for 10-14 days where ground coffee only stays fresh for about 30 minutes (more surface area for the harmful oxygen to make contact with coffee particles). In fact, 90% of the C02 that helps transport coffee oils into your cup evaporate within 60 seconds of grinding. If you want the best possible tasting coffee you must grind it right before brewing.
Q: What if I don't have a grinder?
A: We strongly recommend purchasing a home coffee grinder. Once you taste the difference you will wonder why you did not grind at home sooner. Seriously. A conical burr grinder is the best choice as it gives you very consistent grind. For the budget conscious a blade grinder is a good place to start although the grind is not as consistent and therefore the coffee is not as consistent. Grinding right before brewing is the quickest way to improve your coffee experience.
Q: How long will it take for the coffee to get to me?
A: All coffee is roasted to order and will be shipped within two business days of placing your order. From there delivery to your home or office is usually 1 to 3 days from pick-up via USPS Priority Mail. USPS delivers six days a week, including Saturday!
Q: If coffee goes stale within 10-14 days, and it takes 2-3 days to get to me, is the coffee staling while it is in transit to my home or business?
A: Actually, no! After coffee is roasted, it does something called degassing for about 72 hours. This is a reaction the beans have to being roasted and during this time frame coffee beans need to "rest" - if you tried using the beans during the first 72 hours or so to make coffee, your cup of joe would actually taste kind of flat. Fresh roasted coffee reaches its peak around day 4, which is right when it will arrive at your door.
Q: How often should I order coffee?
A: First, buy only what you will use within the next 2 weeks and reorder as necessary. Buy weekly and consume daily. You'll thank me later.
Q: How much do you charge for shipping?
A: We charge a flat rate of $5.99 shipping per roaster. During checkout extra shipping charges may appear for additional items. Flat rate shipping per roaster will be applied during order processing. Order multiple bags and save money!
Q: Do you have any shipping location restrictions?
A: We currently only ship within the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii.
Q: What size are your bags of coffee?
A: We offer our coffee in sizes of 12 ounces and 5 pounds. For the home coffee drinker order as many 12 ounce bags as you will need for the next two weeks and reorder as necessary.
