The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Cafe Altura Fair Trade coffees are organically grown at altitudes above 3000 feet on small farm cooperatives in developing countries, without the use of harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The Fair Trade system gives local farmers direct access to international markets, assists in their business development and promotes a balanced and healthy growing environment that replenishes the topsoil and provides a winter home to many species of migratory birds. Cafe Altura pays a "fair & just" price for the coffee, allowing a higher standard of living, community development, educational opportunities for children, and providing an alternative to the cultivation of illicit drug crops.
A Story as Old as the Land...
When coffee was discovered a thousand years ago, it was a preciously guarded secret, so valuable the beans were used as currency. In 1980, a group of coffee lovers in Ojai, California heard of a family farm in the mountains of Mexico which grew coffee naturally, the same way it had been when first found in the wilds. Setting off on an adventure, our coffee lovers found a place where self-sustaining agriculture produced a smooth and aromatic coffee with no trace of bitterness. They came back and started Cafe Altura, the original organic coffee, so you can taste coffee the way nature intended.
