Delivery policy

All our coffee is recently roasted and then shipped straight to you as soon as possible for maximum freshness.

Local Shipping

For orders within major cities in South Africa we use a courier service. Please allow two-five working days from receipt of payment to receive your order.

  • Flat Rate (main cities in South Africa) – R85
  • For areas not serviced by our courier company, The Provider will deliver via Post Office, or to the nearest town to the User that is accessible by our courier company within their normal routes. In these circumstances the Provider will be in contact with the User to arrange an alternative address.

Undelivered Packages

In the case of a package not finding its way to you and being returned to us, we will make every attempt to contact you to arrange for re-shipment. You will be united with your Terbodore delights, we promise. Should the package remain undelivered or uncollected for a period of 30 days, your package will be sold to defray expenses and your payment forfeited and it will be assumed that you have abandoned your goods.
