Zero-Waste Coffee Club
The mission behind the Zero-Waste Coffee Club is to deliver high-quality coffee to your door minus the packaging waste. Most specialty coffee available comes in plastic packaging of some sort. We want to cut down on that waste, while offering quality coffee access to anyone across the U.S.
less than 9% of plastic is recycled
Simply put, most of the plastic we "recycle" is not being recycled. There are many reasons for this, but the bottom line is — we need to cut down our plastic use and waste. Consumers need better options.
quality coffee, delivered
In order to provide quality coffee to as many people as possible, we offer club membership to anyone in the U.S.
supporting female farmers
All coffee is sourced by women farmers to support equity AND promote resilience. Learn more about the farmers who produce our delicious coffees.
no plastic, no waste
Our coffee delivery system intentionally uses no plastic waste. You receive your coffee, then return the packaging to us!

Each month you'll receive your coffee. Simply refill your coffee canister.
Repeat! It's that easy. Enjoy freshly roasted coffee each month, without the waste. Need to delay or skip a delivery due to travel? No problem! Adjust in your account settings. Any questions? Just reach out!

"I signed up for a Swelter Coffee subscription because the coffee is delicious and I really believe in the company's commitment to the farmer. Returning the shipping material is easy... I highly recommend this subscription for anybody who is thinking about the whole footprint of their coffee consumption from the farmer to the cup."
