Frequently Asked Questions


If you can't find the answer you're looking for, simply contact us and we'll do our best to help you. Please also refer to our Terms & Conditions of Sale.

I am not a business, but would like to order from you. Can I do this?

Unfortunately not. As per the terms and conditions of sale, we supply exclusively to trade customers. You will be asked for your business details during the registration process.  We only deliver to business addresses where somebody is available to sign for goods.

Can I distribute your products?

We welcome enquiries from distributors, including those outside the UK & Ireland,  who wish to purchase our products in bulk with the intention of sale to trade or end users. Please email your interest to or call +44 (0)141 420 2264.

I am an existing credit account customer. Can I move my account online?

You can only purchase online with a credit or debit card. You cannot currently purchase online using your credit account. Online and offline accounts will remain separate, so please do let us know which account you have used when making enquiries on any transactions. We will always match any of our online offers when you purchase through your offline credit account so you will never be any worse off by purchasing offline.

Why are some items listed as 'call to order'?

In some cases we must carry out a quick sense check before issuing certain products. Our point of sale for example, should only be used to promote drinks made using Espresso Warehouse and/or Matthew Algie products. We also wish to protect the trade pricing of consumer products such as Suki teapots.

When will I receive my order?

Mainland UK orders received before 12 noon will be delivered within three working days. Other UK and Ireland orders received before noon will be delivered within four working days. For special deliveries (such as next day or Saturday deliveries) please contact us to discuss possibilities and costs. For international orders, timing and costs are available on request and depend on location and export regulations.

(It is our policy to carry a large quantity of stock items. However, due to unforeseen circumstances we may from time to time be out of stock of your desired item(s). In this event, we will advise you as quickly as possible and give you an approximate delivery date for the outstanding items. Espresso Warehouse cannot be held responsible for loss of revenue resulting from late or delayed orders).
