What type of ground coffee do you offer?
If you select to have your coffee ground, we use a universal grind on all our Gourmet & Flavored coffees except for our Espresso which is a finer espresso grind. We always recommend ordering whole beans if you can. By ordering your coffee in whole bean form you help extend its shelf life by grinding only what you need when you need it. You also can fine tune the coffee grind to your liking and or your coffee brewer.
Do you have a quick ordering system?
Yes, we offer Quick Order pages for for the following categories:

Do you offer samples?

What is the compatibility of your single serve coffee cups?
  • Will work in all Keurig® 1.0 - 2.0 and K-Cup® compatible
  • San Marco Coffee, Inc. has no affiliation with Keurig® or K-Cup® Keurig® and K-Cup® are registered trademarks of Keurig Green Mountain, Inc.
Why is only the box and not your single serve coffee cups individually labeled?
It is high on our wish list to be able to label them individually like we do our bagged coffees. Unfortunately, there is no printer on the market that can print on the labels directly in the way we manufacture them. Our single serve Fresh Cups are made-to-order but we are working hard to overcome this challenge and hope to have a system in place to be able to label them individually soon!
