To our loyal Jones & Co Coffee family.
We want to keep you in the loop with what’s been happening in the coffee world and how it’s affecting prices.
While Covid has been doing it’s thing around the world, coffee farmers, pickers and logistics companies have all been heavily affected. It’s seen the commodity price of coffee go from USD97c/lb to USD$2.4/lb just recently. Add to that a world wide shipping container shortage that’s led to a 3-5 fold increase in cost and it’s been a perfect storm that has only pushed the cost of coffee landing in Australia up and up. It also means availability of coffee has dropped for some origins as coffee has been delayed by up to 3 months!
The long and short is we’ll be raising the price of our beans and cups of coffee sold in store to cover these costs. But if you know anything about us, you’ll know we won’t be taking shortcuts with the quality of the beans we are using, nor will we move away from the farms and cooperatives that grow this amazing product, just for a few bucks. We’ve always made a point of supporting the farmers that make the daily pleasure and ritual of a great cup of coffee and aren’t abandoning them now for a cheaper alternative.
We have also seen a rise in the cost of shipping our delicious beans to your homes, but rest assured, we will still be offering the same value of free shipping with 1Kg or more purchased in WA and $70 Australia wide. Our goal is to supply high quality coffee, quickly to your door at an affordable price and we know we are achieving that goal with all our products.
You will have seen we’ve updated our website recently to better reflect our business and added a subscription option so you can choose to have the freshest coffee around delivered at regularly, reliable intervals without the need to purchase each time you need it. You can set up to receive it weekly, fortnightly or monthly and update your details if you need to pause, increase or even decrease (but I’m sure that last one won’t be necessary ☺️).
As of the 1st of January 2022, our new coffee bean prices will be 250g - $12, 500g - $21 and 1kg - $38. We will also increase our cup price by 50c per size, which means a Small is $4, Medium is $4.50 and a Large is $5.00.
If you pick up a kilo in store, we always want to share a coffee on the house for our friends. We also have a loyalty program for a cup of coffee which entitles you to a free cup once you’ve purchased 10, which don’t expire.
If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please do not hesitate to contact us.
As always, we love roasting the worlds greatest discovery that fuels our days and enlivens our conversations. Our passion and effort is still our best asset.
