How do I order coffee for pickup in Petworth or Eckington?
During revised operations for COVID-19, we are offering bean and drink orders for pickup during regular store hours through the website www.qualia.coffee. Please note that pickup orders are not available on Monday at our Petworth location or Monday-Wednesday at our Eckington location, as the stores are closed on these days. For immediate fulfillment, you may choose to order beans through this website and have it shipped to you. We no longer offer pickup at Homestead Food & Bev since we have extended our Petworth store hours to 5pm, Tuesday-Friday.
How do I apply to work for Qualia?
Answer these questions three (the last one isn't technically a question):
1) Why do you want to work in coffee, generally? Why at Qualia, specifically?
2) Do you have any experience working as a barista or other relevant capacity?
3) How many hours a week are you looking to work? What is your availability? Which location would you prefer to work at, Petworth or Eckington?
4) Tell us one interesting fact about yourself.
Feel free to email your responses to our management team at email@example.com
Do you offer your beans for wholesale?
Short answer is no. Longer answer is that we have chosen to focus on coffee as produce and the best way to manage the freshness of that produce is to sell it directly to the home user.
While it is true there are many fine wholesale coffee roasters out there, we believe that none of them offer the combination of selection and freshness that we can.
Where and when do you ship beans?
We can ship any two bags anywhere in the U.S. for $7.80. Please note that ordering more than two bags does not reduce the cost of shipping.
We don't know how they do it, but USPS now guarantees delivery to any part of the contiguous United States in 1 to 3 days. However, due to the demands of our roasting schedule, we only ship out orders Monday through Thursday. Any orders received after Thursday noon Eastern Standard Time will be shipped the following Monday.
All beans are shipped within 24 hours of roasting. Often we can ship coffee the same day it is roasted, but if your order includes different offerings, both coffees may not be on that day's roast schedule.
