Why the name Dogwood? Is it because you like dogs? Does that even have anything to do with dogs?
Dogwood is a type of shrub or tree. There are several different types native to Minnesota / Manitoba that have interesting and varied seasonal beauty. It isn’t because we love dogs, but for the record, we do love dogs.
When will my coffee get roasted? Is it fresh?
We roast for online orders Monday-Tuesday. Everything is roasted to order, which means we don't keep roasted inventory here and your coffee gets to you as fresh as possible.
When will my coffee ship?
If you place your order before 7am Monday, your order will be roasted Monday / Tuesday and shipped out Tuesday afternoon at the latest.
I live in the area, can I pick my coffee up and not pay for shipping?
If you are a local customer and you want to pick up your order at our roasterie in the East Exchange District, simply choose the local pickup option. You will receive an email when your order is ready to be picked up. Please do not come before you get this email because we likely haven’t roasted your order yet. We roast for online orders Monday-Tuesday. You can pick up your order anytime between 7:00 - 22:00 at 171 McDermot Avenue (we will leave your order in the cubby wall next to our packaging room door behind the wall opposite of the Forth Cafe)
Will you grind my coffee?
Although it's best to grind your coffee right before brewing, we understand not everyone has access to a grinder. We can grind your roasted coffee as long as you indicate this at the time of ordering - leave a note with your order or reply to your confirmation email telling us you would prefer ground coffee. Also, let us know how you're planning on brewing it so we can grind it appropriately. If you forget to tell us you can always bring your bag over to the cafe and have the staff grind it for you.
