Notes on Repairs

Please note that Lava Java Roasters DOES NOT run a coffee machine repair workshop. As a service to our current coffee purchasing clients, we will take the coffee machine to the workshop, give a swap out machine to the client, if available, and charge what we are charged by the workshop plus a small admin fee.
For clients that are not currently using our coffee or have not used our coffee consistently over the last 3 months, we may at our discretion offer a swap out machine, at a fee, and provide a collection and delivery fee.
Any warrantee on the repairs is carried by the workshop not by Lava Java Roasters


We do not insure any items that are sent via courier. If you require this please contact us, and we will request a formal quote from our courier company and forward that to you.
We do not insure the coffee at all.
