ABOUT YOUR COFFEE
What makes a perfect cup of coffee?
The best coffee always starts with the best coffee beans. Use two level tablespoons for every 6 ounces of cold, fresh water. Brew at 200°F for proper extraction. And of course, pick your favorite mug to enjoy your coffee. Always keep your coffee maker clean and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for brewing. Stir and serve right away for maximum aroma and flavor. Don’t forget to remove the grounds after brewing.
Where is your coffee grown?
Our team travels the world searching for the best Arabica beans in the world. Coffee grows between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, so we source from a wide variety of regions including some of the highly sought-after beans in Ethiopia, Sumatra, Kona, Jamaica and Central & South America.
How much of each type of bean are in your blends?
We do not share the exact percentages or regions of our blends—as those are our secret recipes that make our blends so unique from other coffees.
How is your coffee roasted?
Cameron’s Coffee is small batch roasted in European style roasters. We have some really cool roasting technology that allows us to roast dark, rich, smooth beans without ever tasting burnt. Learn more
How is your coffee flavored?
All of our flavored coffees are specially designed to allow each flavor to enhance the natural taste of our 100% Specialty Grade Arabica Coffee. We won’t hide the taste of the beans with syrupy flavors; instead we create special blends that allow you to enjoy the flavoring and the coffee, too. All of our flavors are a combination of natural and artificial flavors.
What does each package color mean?
We redesigned our portfolio to clearly indicate each type of coffee. All of our premium (non-Flavored) coffees have blue packaging
; our flavored coffees have red
; and our sustainable coffees are in green
Is there caffeine in your decaffeinated coffee?
Since caffeine is naturally found in the coffee plant, all decaffeinated coffees have minimal amounts of the substance. We guarantee our decaffeinated coffees
to be 97% caffeine free.
What is our decaffeination process?
We use an indirect process to decaffeinate our coffee beans. This process involves a long water soak at near boiling temperature, where the caffeine is gradually drawn out of the coffee beans. The mixture of water and caffeine is treated to absorb the caffeine from the solution. The moisture is then heated to evaporation, removing the solution and the caffeine. Later, water is reintroduced to the beans to restore any moisture, oils, and flavors that may have been lost.
What is your satisfaction guarantee?
If for any reason you’re not happy with the coffee you’ve purchased, our coffee experts will work with you to find a better match and send a fresh batch your way!
How do Cameron’s Single Serves work?
Cameron’s uses a single serve coffee filter instead of a plastic cup. By using a coffee filter, our single serves work just like a drip brewer
. The brewer punctures the lid, then fills the entire single serve with hot water—soaking all of the coffee grounds, then drips out the bottom to brew a full-flavored cup.
Are Cameron’s Single Serves compostable?
All of our EcoPods are partially compostable, with paper lidding and a ring made of biobased materials like corn, beets and wood. We’ve recently started producing 100% compostable pods and they’ll be available everywhere in stores Fall 2017!
Do Cameron’s Single Serves work in all brewers?
Cameron’s Single Serves are compatible with most single serve coffeemakers including many Keurig®, Breville® BKC700, Cuisinart® SS700, Mr. Coffee® BVMC-KG1 brewers.*
What about the 2.0?
Of course! We’re transitioning, so all of our lidding with the orange ring can be used in the 2.0. We also have the Cameron’s “Too Smart for 2.0” clip for you to use in the meantime for any old lidding. Just contact us
on our website to request one.
Are all of your coffees Sustainable?
While not all of our coffees are Organic, Rainforest Alliance or Shade Grown, all of our coffees are responsibly-sourced. We start with partnering with farms to ensure 1) good working conditions and pay for the farmers, and 2) the tools and processes to produce a healthy crop. More importantly, we also personally invest in the communities of the farms. For the long-term sustainability of a farm, it’s about taking care of the people who work on there, so we ensure that the schools and medical facilities have enough resources for current and future generations of coffee farmers. Read more about our Sustainability efforts.
What is organic coffee?
Coffee is considered organic if it is grown without the use of chemical substances or additives, like pesticides or herbicides. Organic coffee is packaged only after our equipment has gone through extensive cleaning in order to maintain the integrity of the beans. Rest assured, your organic coffee is as fresh and tasty as nature intended!
What is Rainforest Alliance coffee?
Rainforest Alliance coffees protect the land, waterways and biodiversity of the environment as well as good labor standards for farmers. Coffee farms must maintain (or restore) natural forest cover to achieve 40 percent shade coverage. Farmers are not allowed to alter natural water courses, traffic wild animals, destroy ecosystems, dump untreated wastewater, or conduct other harmful practices. Farmers must have non-discriminatory hiring practices and must pay legal minimum wages. Children under 15 cannot be hired and minors are not supposed to lift more than 20% of their body weight or work on steep slopes or in dangerous areas.
What is Shade Grown coffee?
Shade Grown coffee is specifically grown under a lush canopy of shade trees. This encourages natural ecological processes, making the coffee beans healthier and tastier. Shade Grown coffees are produced in a more traditional habitat, leaving forests intact and helping out the local wildlife. Many of our blends contain shade grown coffee beans.
What is Fair Trade coffee?
Fair Trade Organizations create and develop healthy, respectful trading relationships across the world. These organizations focus on supporting coffee producers by guaranteeing fair pricing on their crop.
How should I store my coffee?
We recommend storing your coffee in an air tight container in the cabinet, away from light. Room temperature is ideal for storing coffee, as cold temperatures (like your freezer) can dry out the coffee beans.
What is the shelf life of Cameron’s Coffee?
Cameron’s Coffee is guaranteed for one year from the packaging date. You can find this information on the bottom of your single serve carton or on the back of your bag.

How many cups of coffee are recommended daily?
