The time it takes to receive your order depends on a variety of factors such as your location, weekdays vs weekends, and which items you have ordered.

We bag and grind each coffee to order, so our delivery time includes processing which is the time between us receiving your order and our Production Team bagging and grinding (if requested) your coffee. From there, the bags of coffee and retail items are packaged to ship!

Most orders ship UPS. Certain destinations, items, and PO boxes will be sent using USPS.

Pickups - When will my In-store pickup be ready?

During our holiday months, pickup orders are typically ready within 5-7 days. You will receive a confirmation email when your order is ready. We look forward to seeing your during cafe hours Sunday - Saturday.

Something is wrong with my order, who do I contact?

We’re sorry to hear that! You can email with your issue and someone from our team will get back to you within 24-48 hours.

Why isn't the coffee I am looking for available online?

Our coffees are added online based on availability and seasonality. Single origin coffees are available based on the farms and sellers we order from, which is why these coffees can be switched out quite often.

Flavored coffee is available based on seasonality. We offer a special selection for the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter seasons. These selections are based on the most common and loved flavors during each season. One example of this is the fan-favorite Snowflake Crunch, available in the Fall/Winter.

How do I track my shipment?

Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the tracking number. If you cannot find it, simply shoot us an email at

I have a gift card, can I use it online?

Unfortunately, no. Our gift cards are available for use in our cafes only and are not eligible for online purchases. Please contact us with questions or concerns.

Read our DIY Cold Brew Home Brew Guide Here.

We recommend using a darker roasted coffee (such as our Midnight Express) for cold brew coffee, with a 1:3 coffee weight ratio, steeped for 16-18 hours.

For a traditional coffee maker, how many scoops to cups do you recommend?

We suggest 2 tbsp per 5-6oz of water, then adjusting to your taste based on preference.

Do you add sugar to your cold brew?

No, we don't add sugar (or any sweeteners of any kind) to any of our original and flavored cold brew products - not in our cafes, gallons, or grocery products.

You can add sugar or sweeteners to taste.

Are your coffees organic? Fair trade?

We work very closely with our suppliers to make sure the coffee beans we roast are of the highest quality and sourced ethically. We are a Specialty Coffee Roaster, allowing us to focus on our craft from Origin to Cup. Here at Lucky Goat, we ensure each coffee we source is up to our standards, and the standards which provide farmers with the wages they need for their farms and families. For further reading, check out our blog on Fair Trade Coffee.

How do you flavor your coffee?

Lucky Goat Flavored Coffee's are infused using aromatic oils. Unlike others who add sweeteners and flavorings, our coffees do not contain any chemicals, sugars, or artificial sweeteners.

The way we make our flavored coffees is by infusing coffee beans with aromatic oils in order to build a certain flavor profile. These aromatic oils fill your nose and mouth with flavors such as chocolate, caramel, hazelnut and more. The flavors are received through the nose and your olfactory senses instead of through the taste buds on your tongue. All of our coffees are keto-friendly and sugar-free. Furthermore, our flavored and seasonal coffees do not contain a significant amount of Calories, Fat, Carbohydrates, Protein, Trans Fatty Acids, Fiber and/or Sodium. Therefore, they are of negligible importance nutritionally. Our coffee flavors are vegan and allergen-free.

How do you decaffeinate your decaf coffee?

Our Decaf is always 100% decaffeinated using ONLY water. Never any other process or chemicals used.

Lucky Goat Decaf coffee alternates between Swiss Water Process and Mountain Water Process, sometimes a blend of the two. This is based on quality and seasonality. Our Roastmaster, Head of Coffee, and Cupping Team work closely together every month to source and blend our Decaf Coffee ensuring only ethically sourced, consistent, and high-quality decaf coffee.

Mountain Water Process is identical to the Swiss Water Process in its method. The tasting notes of our Decaf are almonds/walnut, brown sugar, and graham cracker. It is a rich, sweet cup that is almost indistinguishable from caffeinated coffee (if it is brewed correctly). This is important, usually roasters do not take the care when roasting decaf, because in their mind it is not coffee. We take great care in making sure every roast is roasted properly, and to its maximum sweetness.

This also includes our Flavored Decaf Coffees.

Our Company

When and how did Lucky Goat start?

The Lucky Goat story began in 2010 in Tallahassee, FL. Read all about our story here!

Where did the name Lucky Goat originate?

Legend has it that a herdsman named Kaldi noticed his goats had an extra spring in their step after eating the wild berries that grew near their feeding grounds. Curious, Kaldi tried the berries himself and experienced the same euphoria. The seeds of those berries are the coffee “bean” — which is why we can thank those lucky goats for the delicious drink we have today.

Do you offer Wholesale?

Yes! In fact, the vast majority of our company focuses on Wholesale, Roasting, and Distribution. Learn more about wholesale coffee here.

Is Lucky Goat a Franchise?

Lucky Goat owns and operations many corporate cafes in the Southeast US. Additionally, Lucky Goat began offering franchises in 2023. Read more about franchising here.
