The coffees we choose

All your questions answered.

  • Who is eligible for Fellow Drops?

    Anyone in the continental U.S. who has an address that can receive USPS, FedEx, and UPS packages.

  • How do I place an order?

    Every week you'll receive a text message describing a coffee. All you need to do is respond to the text message with the number of bags you'd like to purchase (1, 2…) and we'll ship to the address we have on file and charge your credit card. Drops typically open at 9am PST / 12pm EST and you have 12 hours to respond to the text to place an order. After the drop closes, we will no longer accept additional orders.

  • When do I receive my order?

    All our coffees are shipped ASAP. Our coffee offerings debut on Tuesday, process on Wednesday, and ship out Thursday or Friday. Once shipped, your coffee will arrive within 3-5 business days. Larger orders tend to arrive quicker in 2-3 business days from the ship date.

  • What shipping carrier do you use?

    Each bag ships directly from the roaster. Typically our roasters use USPS but some use UPS and FedEx. Your address must be able to receive packages from these carriers in order to receive coffee from us.

  • Is this whole bean coffee or pre ground?

    We only offer whole bean coffee.

  • What roast profiles do you feature?

    We tend to lean towards single-origin light roasts for pour-over. Occasionally we select a coffee with a more developed roast profile that surprises us, but that said, none of our coffees are traditional dark roasts. We’re always on the hunt for exceptional and interesting flavors: coffees with an amazing origin story, unique process, or just a profile so damn good you have to brew and drink the entire bag all in one day.

  • How do I change my shipping address?

    To update your shipping address, simply reply “update address” to the Fellow Drops phone number to generate a secure link.

  • How do I change my credit card on file?

    To update your credit card, simply reply “update payment” to the Fellow Drops phone number to generate a secure link to update your credit card information. Please note that these links are uniquely created each time and will expire so if you need to update it again in the future, you will need to reply “update payment” to the phone number again.

  • How do I cancel my subscription?

    You're not enrolled in a subscription program, so there's no need to cancel per se. You'll only be charged if you respond to the text message. However, if you'd like to stop receiving text messages, simply respond with STOP to the message and you'll be removed from our text list.

  • How do I contact you?

    Your questions and feedback are greatly appreciated. Please submit a request to get in touch with us. You can reply with anything (how about “Hi!”) to our Fellow Drops phone number at any time for a list of options, including a link to submit a request right there in your texts ;-)
