By Cafe Altura6 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2016
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.

Coffee The Way Nature Intended.
Cafe Altura coffees are organically grown at altitudes above 3000 feet on small family owned farms from around the world. The coffee tree grows according to its natural cycle, without the use of harmful fertilizers and pesticides. By employing companion planting, compost and shade trees, our farmers create a balanced, healthy and self-sustaining growing environment that replenishes the topsoil and provides a winter home to many species of migratory birds. Cafe Altura buys from the same farms each year to insure the integrity and quality of our coffees. Special harvesting selects ripened cherries washed in rainwater, sun dried, hand sorted, then air-roasted for a rich, smooth taste.
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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
If you're looking for a typical coffee flavor, nothing special, this is really a great blend. It doesn't have a flavor that really stands out, it tastes like any normal coffee. I'm not crazy about "flavored" or rich coffees, and this one does the trick for me... neither too little nor too much flavor.
Excellent aroma and taste.
