Hey Chris.

I wanted to thank again for your time and teaching on Tuesday. For us it was time so very well spent.

We both have been back to work full time these last 2 days, so not a lot of time to continue to explore. But looking forward to the weekend for a little more time to work on our skills.

Thanks again. and we definitely will plan on visiting Clive Coffee when we come to Portland in July.

Hi, I came into Clive Coffee to inquire about my broken espresso machine. I was sent to Ken in the repair department who I found to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was also charming and quite funny even though I didn't expect that. He made every attempt to repair my machine and I came to the conclusion that it was time to outfit my home barista with an upgrade. Since we have a large family and lots of friends it was not unreasonable for me to upgrade to the machine of my dreams; the Vivaldi Mini ii. Of course it has to have red panels on the side because my Coffee bar has red cloth panels at the back dividing the coffee bar from the art studio. Back to the reason I am writing this saga. Clive Coffee and in particular Ken made this experience so much fun and I feel I have, not only the perfect machine for my needs, but the support of experts if needed. My gratitude to Ken for all his help and Clive Coffee for offering such great customer service and fabulous products. Looking forward to the training class that I will be signing up for.

Hi Chris,

Thank you very much for the time you spent with us explaining all little details about the Duetto III. Your demonstration, tips and advices really make a difference from simply buying online. We will refer you if any friends look to buy a coffee machine.
Stephane Noel :: Tuesday, January 8, 2013



Hi Chris,

Not is only 'Better' the title of one of my favorite books, it is also a fitting word to explain what it's like to enjoy a tasty cup of coffee from the Vivaldi. It is at home and we are just loving it! The family and friends tend to linger a little longer, and what a joy it is to treat them with their favorite drink. Needless to say, life is a little better not having to leave the farm for a latte.

Thank you for all the assistance, the walnut panels are a perfect match for the house. I will send another picture of the beautiful machine.

Hello, My name is Ivan Greene. I am a coffee lover and owner of PUDGE KNUCKLES, a cafe in New York. Just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful web site. Your style is awesome and the way you explain your products is super informative yet so simple even a highly caffeinated crazy like myself can read through it. I found your site looking for a good drip coffee machine to get my father as a gift. He has been making coffee in a crappy old machine for years and had no idea that you can actually make great tasting coffee at home... consistently. Your reviews on the Technivorm and Bona-Vita were just what I needed to simply explain to him the function of a well made drip machine. I look forward to ordering some of your coffees to try out in our cafe. And, I think my father will be psyched this Christmas to finally have a machine that makes good coffee.
Ivan :: Friday, November 16, 2012



Dear Chris,

Again , thank you deeply for all the Pre and Post sales support, advice and care! As promised, this is a picture of the incredible Spaziale with wood panels and its setup in the center of library. Right under an antique reproduction of a NYC map.

All the best to you and the Clive people!!!!
Alex :: Monday, October 29, 2012



Chris,

Just wanted to thank you for your help with purchasing a Technivorm coffee maker. We received it last week and my husband and I have been enjoying some great coffee! Appreciated your email updates on the status of the order, especially since it had been backordered. Thanks, too, for your offer to brew some decaf for us (you didn't have any the week the coffee maker was sent) but that's not necessary.

Thanks for great customer service!
Karen Hancock :: Thursday, October 25, 2012



Jennifer was awesome on the phone. She was super helpful and guided me right to the best grinder option and confirmed that my espresso machine choice was the right one. (Thanks, Jennifer!!!!) Her help is why I'm choosing to order from you instead of the many other online options.
James :: Wednesday, October 24, 2012



I was able to get the Andreja up and running today with the manual I printed from online. All I can say is that even for a total newbie like myself... WOW. I pulled a total of 6 shots (3 for me, 2 for hubby, 1 for munchkin) and made 5 drinks (3 lattes, 2 iced lattes) and they were frigging unbelievable! My husband is marveling that he can feel the caffeine but there is no jittery after effect. I thought given my lack of experience, there would be more of a learning curve. But this machine is so awesome and it makes it so easy.

I can't wait to review it on your website! Thank you again for everything... And btw, your beans are delicious! I have a feeling I'll be going through a lot!
Clare :: Saturday, October 13, 2012



Thank you for so efficiently taking care of my request for that replacement carafe. I see in another e-mail that it's shipped out already. You and Clive Coffee are a pleasure to do business with.

Sincerely,
Helen Green :: Thursday, September 6, 2012



Clive Coffee,

Thank you for the great information on your web site and for the quick service. Our Bonavita thermal coffee maker arrived yesterday about 5:45PM in great shape. It even got here a day earlier than estimated. I like it. The coffee is very good, much better than any other auto drip maker I have used: Gevalia, Mr. Coffee and Melitta Thermal. And is better than most of my pour over coffees, which I have preferred to the other drip makers. I did learn that the Bonavita and toaster oven used at the same time trips the circuit breaker though, didn't think of that.

Thanks again for the service and for helping with the decision process,
Bruce Thistle :: Tuesday, August 21, 2012



I just have to say what a pleasure your customer service experience was / is!!! I got a Mocha master without a part. That part was in my hands in 2 days, AND I got another bag of your coffee in a flavor that was much more to my liking. Thank you so much for the BEST service. It's uncommon to get good treatment today!

A happy coffee drinker - today.
Derek Wallace :: Thursday, August 2, 2012



I called this morning to ask a question about purchasing a grinder through the website, and the person I spoke with was extremely helpful! She definitely helped my husband and I with choosing our grinder. Thank you for your great customer service!!
Lian :: Monday, July 16, 2012



Thank you so much for your outstanding service. I am not simply a satisfied customer, I am a raving fan of your company!!
Kaz :: Friday, July 6, 2012



Good to know customer service is alive and well at Clive Coffee. Thank you for your excellent advice and service. I hope I get the opportunity to refer you to friends.
Robert (Bob,) Biesk :: Monday, June 25, 2012



I wanted to let you guys at Clive know that my new grinder arrived. The whole process from ordering to receiving went off like clockwork! Very pleased.

Thanks for the great service.
Dave Johnstone :: Wednesday, June 13, 2012



I've been using my new Bonavita coffee maker that I ordered from your web site for about 2 weeks now and I have to say that I never thought an electric machine could make coffee this good. It rivals my Chemex, which I never thought possible. Your fair price and free shipping made the order so easy! I just put in an order for a couple 12 oz. bags of your coffee beans since I didn't have time to get to Intelligentsia this weekend. I expect they will be excellent as well. The only downside to the Bonavita is that you can't use mediocre beans with it because just as it brings out the best in fresh, well roasted coffee, it also brings out the mediocrity of poorly roasted coffee. Nothing but artisan coffee from now on!!
Phil Voss :: Tuesday, May 29, 2012



This means alot. You are a great company to deal. I feel like your a smaller or family owned business or at least you give the good feel of that. I myself live in a small town and know and enjoy the great customer service. It is no big deal about the extra shipping. I have been patient and am not worried if it takes a couple extra days. But, I will enjoy that extra bag of coffee.

Thank you for the quickest of responses I have seen from ordering online yet.

Much appreciated
Gary :: Monday, April 16, 2012



Thank you Thank you Thank! you guys are awesome and so is the presso!!! Love you coffee too.
Rhonda Hankin :: Thursday, April 12, 2012



Thank you for the great service! I received the straight posts yesterday and will be dropping off both sets of the other posts in the mail tomorrow with the preprinted label from northwest glass. The coffee looks and smells fantastic, cold drip brewing some now. Thank You!
Garrett :: Tuesday, April 10, 2012



I am sure as a business you would have preferred to fill this order immediately but there are times when you have no control over a situation. Thank you for your generous offer of cost and shipping which I will gladly accept. Your responses have been great and dealing with your company has been a pleasure. I consider the back order a small bump in the road and look forward to ordering your coffees. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends. Thanks again.
Friday, March 30, 2012



First I want to tell you how pleased I am with the replacement Bonavita you sent. It works beautifully, is easy to use, and makes a terrific cup of coffee.

Many thanks for all the help.
Cheryl Richards :: Friday, March 30, 2012



I received my Technivorm CDGT moccamaster Coffee Maker (that is a mouthful) last week, I love it––great coffee, really quickly. Everyone I spoke to at Clive was super nice and helpful. If I recall it was Chris and Mark. Thank you so much!!
Margaret Jurzyna :: Wednesday, February 8, 2012



It has been a pleasure working with you. It's rare that you find individuals that are committed to providing excellent customer service. This experience has shown the dedication by Clive Coffee towards its customers.

I will be a customer of Clive Coffee for a very long time.
Alvin :: Monday, February 6, 2012



I wanted to let you know that I received my replacement unit yesterday afternoon and sent the defective one back to you this morning. So far, everything seems to be working great! And, thank you for sending along more coffee as well. I didn't expect anything other than the coffee maker, so that was a nice little surprise. I really appreciate you stepping up to the plate in handling this. It's good to know that superior customer service is alive and well.
Trish Benson :: Friday, February 3, 2012



I just wanted to say thank you very much for the great service! And also this Bonavita coffee machine is the best machine i have ever used! And trust me, I have used quite a few! again, Thank you for everything.
Santiago Cantu :: Monday, January 23, 2012



The home Install went very smoothly, no problem, completely professional.
Ken :: Thursday, January 19, 2012



The Andreja / Baratza Vario combination that you recommended is working very well. The pump is a bit noisy, but I can't compare with a rotary pump in my same location. It's not unbearable and doesn't last long. I especially appreciate your handling of the return situation with the scratched machine. Excellent customer service. The Lovejoy is delicious; I'm also buying from a local roaster here in Dallas, Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters, who do a very nice job as well. To potential customers on the website, Chris really listened and helped me make a good choice for my needs. If you want great service from people who know their stuff, you needn't go anywhere else. If you're in Portland, try to take the Espresso Class...lots of fun and informative.
John Christian :: Wednesday, January 4, 2012



Many thanks for directing me to Lovejoy and for the other recommendations. Clive Coffee is g-r-e-a-t ! It's just like having a coffee shop next door - such excellent and personal service. I wish that you were in Philadelphia... Anyway, I just advised my son-in-law to purchase his Technivorm from you rather than anyone else local or on the internet. Service really does matter! Please don't ever change.
Richard :: Tuesday, January 3, 2012



Very friendly and professional service. Had a problem with a coffee grinder a week after we bought it, but we were given a loaner until ours was replaced. I appreciate that Clive Coffee tests the products they sell and don't push the most expensive machines they carry.
Bruce Teborek :: Saturday, December 31, 2011



The Technivorm arrived and I thank you very much for the extras. The Brazilian Mogiana coffee is superlative. And with several days use now, this coffee maker is going to accompany me in all my incarnations. It makes a difference, both flavor and smoothness. And it's easier to handle--given how I am early in the morning pre-coffee--than Mr. Coffee, even. (Mr. Coffee doesn't pour so well; the taste difference isn't even worth mentioning.) A happy new year to you, and I will be telling my friends about your company, all good. Sincerely, Mike
Mike Russell :: Thursday, December 29, 2011



I just thought I would let you know. I clicked on your ad on the top banner of Crackberry.com. I spent oodles of time yesterday going through your website ad enjoying all the videos. I also placed a small order of descaler and a couple bags of coffee to try with my Technivorm. You have an awesome website! Thank you for everything you do!
Roxie :: Wednesday, December 14, 2011



Holy moly Mark, I just made a test pot of coffee with the Moccamaster. I feel like I'm drinking coffee for the first time! This isn't a coffee maker, it's a revolution occupying my mouth. Nothing will be the same after this. The capital has fallen.
Mike :: Monday, December 12, 2011



Hi Mark, I just made my first pot of oak aged Sumatra coffee in my new Technivorm. I used the gold toned filter and it may just be the best cup of coffee ever! This is coming from someone who roasts his own beans in a home roaster from time to time and I get good results. But I can't duplicate the wonderful flavor notes of this coffee. I was using a Chemex with steel mesh filter which was fine, but the Technivorm has features I like better,in that it is automatic, saving me time and labor and it keeps the coffee very warm. I'll be ordering more aged Sumatra and trying some of your other coffees as well.
Jeff Wade :: Tuesday, December 6, 2011



Wow! I am impressed! Thank you so much Chris! Best customer service I can remember receiving in a very long time. Guess you really do mean "satisfaction guaranteed"! Thank you.
Jeanne :: Tuesday, November 29, 2011



Surprisingly efficient and speedy service. The enclosed gifts of coffee and a filter are so appreciated. Awesome. thanks so much.
Thursday, November 17, 2011



The service was great. I received my coffee maker right away and was thrilled with all the free stuff I got! Nothing compared to the deal I got at Clive.
Beth :: Tuesday, November 15, 2011



Outstanding...as usual! The bean is outstanding too. ;0
Ina :: Friday, November 11, 2011



I am happy with the service from Clive-Coffee and am happy with the product I ordered.
K. Wilson :: Wednesday, November 9, 2011



I can't tell you how nuch I enjoy my coffee in the morning; it's not bitter & just the right temperature.....I love it!
Rosemarie Sire :: Friday, October 28, 2011



Your coffee beans are outstanding. Ordering is easy and your shipping fees are more than resonable. I'm a happy repeat customer. ;0
Ina Maslana :: Thursday, October 20, 2011



Thanks for the super fast coffee shipment! I ordered on October 14, 2011 and received the next day on October 15th! I have never received anything(coffe or other)I ordered through the mail so fast. I did not expect such a fast shipment so when I received notification that the coffee would be here Saturday the 15th I went to my office and opened up to wait for the mailperson as they won't leave a package at a closed business. Once the mailperson arrived she said she had forgotton the package and I would have to wait until Monday to receive - wanting to try the coffee right away I talked her into calling the(closed)post office annex and authorizing them to give me the package if I went by. Everything worked out good and I tried both coffees already today using a Hario Pour Over for both. Thanks again for the great customer service and the great coffee!
Jack Money :: Tuesday, October 18, 2011



Delivered on time! Fresh roasted and great coffee. :-) When I am not roasting my own, this is who I order from!
Tuesday, October 18, 2011



Hi Mark, Got the replacement today- everything is great and perfact- so happy!!!!! Thank you so much for a world class customer service. We noticed the following on the replacement:
   1. The limit switch is perfect and the pump is about 30% quieter then the first one.
   2. the drip tray is perfect- no scraping against the silicone tubing.
We are very happy and the 1st machine is on the way back to you! Please let me know which cleaner I should order from you guys though.
Thanks so much! Martin :: Monday, October 17, 2011



We are hooked on Clive Coffee for the wonderful beans and the terrific service! Even though we live in the other Portland where there are lots of coffee shops, we find your coffee smoother and richer than the coffee we can purchase here.
Thanks!
Michele & Harvey :: Monday, October 10, 2011



Hiya! You guys rock!
I love, love, love my TechniVorm! The glass carafe is much better suited to my style than the thermos model that you credited me for below. I'd always thought that the Krupps coffeemaker I've been using for 20 years was good at managing water temperature (it had that reputation at the time) but I've learned otherwise in the past week. Wowee!
Plus - when I realized I'd made a mistake purchasing the thermos model you had the carafe model in my hands the next day! Wow!
I enjoyed the Guatamala beans as well, thanks.
John :: Sunday, October 9, 2011



Every part of this experience has been good. The coffee is great. The technivorm is really worth it. So far, very good. Thank you
Friday, October 07, 2011



My package was lost by UPS, albeit temporarily. Clive was very responsive in initiating a search. It was obvious that they cared. I was very impressed by the response and the follow up.
Friday, October 07, 2011



An easy website to order from and the delivery was fast.
Saturday, October 01, 2011



Everything was great. I had a little trouble getting the Silvia to work but got that figured out. Best cup of coffee I have ever made. Thanks.
Friday, September 30, 2011



I want to write the whole story of my interaction with Clive to make clear how great these guys are but this is, after all, the internet. So for those helplessly dedicated to brevity, here is the skinny: if you're looking for an espresso machine and great coffee, go talk to the wonderful people at Clive. You will be happy that you did.
Now for those with a slightly longer span of attention, I was looking for a machine, grinder etc as a graduation gift for my wife. The extent of my knowledge was many days of internet research and the fact that I know we both like espresso. The owner guided me through the overwhelmingly complex shot-pulling world, showed me how to work the machines and his colleague came out to help and made me an espresso right there from the machine. As I spoke with the owner, my plan to surprise my wife that evening came up in conversation. As I was finalizing my order, the owner realized that there was a mistake in his inventory and the last model that I wanted sold the day before. I told him that it was not critical that I surprise my wife that evening but I think he saw my slight disappointment. So he cleaned up and boxed the floor model and told me to take it home for the surprise and bring it back the next day. He also dissuaded me from buying the floor model pointing out that it gets a lot of use in demonstrations for customers.
There are more details I would love to share but suffice it to say that the folks at Clive did not miss an opportunity to exceed expectations. Go meet them. They deserve your business.
Josh :: Friday, September 30, 2011



Amanda was fantastic. Took my order for the Silvia and shipped everything including all the extras within days. I think it's really important to order from a small company where you get personalized attention. When I called back to get some accessories she told me that I had a $20 gift certificate for purchasing the Silvia and the accessories would be shipped free. Now that's taking care of your customers. Thanks Amanda!
Dick :: Wednesday, September 28, 2011



Your customer service is great! Was missing some items and they were taken care of promptly. Will definitely share your website with friends and family.
Marco :: Sunday, September 25, 2011



THE best coffee I have ever tasted.
Thursday, September 22, 2011



I want to say that your service was wonderful and I received my purchase in a timely manner and it was packaged superbly. Again thanks for every thing.
Tom :: Thursday, September 22, 2011



Loved the coffee and loved the fast service even more!
Friday, September 09, 2011



Great customer service!! Quick ship too!! Kudos Kudos Kudos!! Thanks again!!!
Monday, September 05, 2011



Service was fantastic! I had one small glitch in the order and Clive service rep more than made up for it. Look forward to future business.
Anthony :: Friday, September 02, 2011



Your service was excellent and I am happy with the item that I purchased. Since I am using it to make "pour over" coffee, recommend that you sell a simple ceramic cone filter holder. The glass one has a plastic handle and a one piece ceramic one would be so handy.
Joy :: Friday, September 02, 2011



Easy ordering, fast delivery. Product delivered with "bonus" coffee samples. Nice touch.
Seth :: Thursday, July 21, 2011



We ordered three items and when received, one was incorrect. When contacted, you immediately shipped the correct item. All were received promptly and in good condition. All three have been used and work as expected and as promised. We would order from Clive Coffee again.
Wednesday, June 29, 2011



Shipping was very fast and communication great. Thank you.
Monday, June 27, 2011



Prompt handling of order. Communicated clearly when delivery would be made...and it was as promised. Coffee maker is everything it was billed to be. A great customer experience!
Bob :: Sunday, June 26, 2011



Very timely delivery. Great product.
Kirby :: Thursday, June 23, 2011



Love my Technivorm, everything you've said about it is spot on. It's a great device that produces outstanding results--every cup is delish. About Clive: outstanding service, responsiveness, and accommodation. Coffee selections are wonderful and fresh. It is truly a treat to trade with a retailer all the way across the country as if they're your next door neighbor--it makes the difference and I'm happy to spend here. LONG LIVE CLIVE*COFFEE!
Kirk :: Wednesday, June 22, 2011



Thank you for communicating promptly to enquiries each time. Courteous also. Very happy with new coffee maker, does all that it claims. looking forward to years of delicious coffee. many thanks.
Wednesday, June 15, 2011



Very easy purchase to make. Well organized and informative website gave me all the information necessary to make my decision. Thanks for a great buying process.
Gregory :: Monday, June 13, 2011



The entire experience was totally acceptable and exceeded my expectations, Thank You.
Joseph :: Thursday, May 19, 2011



My phone call to Clive was handled well and my parts purchase was delivered in few days.
Thursday, May 19, 2011



Customer service was attentive. Did not feel rushed. I appreciated the "hands on" demo of how the coffee maker worked.
I would return and also recommend Clive Coffee.
Location was a challenge to find.
Wednesday, May 18, 2011



I recently purchased the Technivorm KBT 741 Mocca master and I LOVE IT!! this coffee maker makes the best pot of coffee ever! Probably because the water reaches the right temperature! 200 Degrees! The only thing I do different is I grind my beans fresh for every pot. I use the same coffee i just buy it in bean form and it tastes great!! The Technivorm is easy to use and the carafe keeps the coffee HOT! and it pours nice as well! Clive Coffee sent me 3 I think pound bags of coffee to sample that i didn't even know i was getting not to mention a whole box of paper filters( i use the swiss gold tone filter! AWESOME!!) How nice to actually get something of quality like the free coffee which is great by the way for free when your not expecting it. Thanks Clive Coffee FOR EVERYTHING ..AND THE SPEEDY PROCESSING FROM YOUR COMPANY TO GET MY TECHNIVORM OUT TO ME QUICK;Y!! THANK YOU I WILL ORDER FROM YOU AGAIN!!
Jim :: Tuesday, May 17, 2011



Great site layout! Easy ordering process & fast shipping. Will come back again soon.
Todd :: Monday, May 16, 2011



great response on order and delivery. it came even sooner than i had expected.
margaret :: Friday, May 13, 2011



We bought the Technivorm KBT-741. It's easy to see why this is one of the few coffee makers Clive handles. Elegant in its simplicity; automates the pour-over process. We ordered the unit in the evening, and it arrived within 36 hours! We've tried several Clive coffees and have been thoroughly impressed. Looking forward to a chance to take an espresso class when next in Portland. Well done Clive - excellent products and exceptional customer service!
Jim :: Sunday, May 01, 2011



Very fast service. Very satisfied.
Sunday, May 01, 2011



I ordered a back-up Technivorm thermal carafe. From order to prompt delivery Clive Coffee did everything right. Thank you.
Rick :: Sunday, May 01, 2011



Clive has great service,that is why I am a returning customer!
Wednesday, April 20, 2011



V60 Hario makes a suburb ccup of ccoffee. Simple aand very ccool tto watch tthe extraction. Clive Coffee has awesome customer service. Thanks
Mark :: Tuesday, April 19, 2011



Service was outstanding. I was disappointed that a couple of things I wanted were out of stock but you did a great job of directing me to another source. You guys rock.
Don :: Monday, April 11, 2011



The first coffee pot I received had a problem with the switches, so I called and the customer service department was wonderful! She said "We will send you out a replacement TODAY" and that is what happened. Also received a UPS label to return the defective pot. The replacement worked beautifully and I am so pleased by the prompt resolution to my problem!
Roma :: Monday, April 11, 2011



I would like to say that Portland is fortunate to have Clive Coffee here in Portland. Offers two options:online viewing and purchasing as well as in person help and explanation of coffee, equipment, and direction. Well done! Mark and Nunzi both helped me a great deal. Thanks.
Mike :: Saturday, March 26, 2011



In the process of researching a coffee maker I found your company in a Google search. You had the Technivorm at a competitive price with nice freebies such as the gold filter and the $20.00 gift card for a future purchase in addition to free shipping. After reading your glowing customer reviews, I decided to go with Clive even though I am on the other side of the country. I found your staff to be helpful, very punctual in returning emails, and attentive to details. When my address was incomplete for my online order, there was an email in my inbox the very next day asking for clarification. Both my coffee maker and subsequent coffee order shipped and arrived very quickly.
I would absolutely recommend Clive Coffee to friends, and would welcome you to post this as the review of another satisfied customer!
Suzanne :: Monday, March 21, 2011



Got a Kone and Chemex carafe. Perfect service and love the products!
Sunday, March 20, 2011



Your service was excellent... very fast and efficient. Thanks.
Catherine :: Tuesday, March 15, 2011



The afternoon I came by for a demo the service I received from Nunzi was excellent. He was knowledgable, thorough and patient showing each machine and their advantages. Through this process we were able to select the best machine for our home use; in fact upgraded to the Andregoia Premium. We Love the machine and the espresso is better than most espressos we would purchase from commercial machines.
The Sat. morning we purchased the machine it was crazy busy with only Mark on duty and but we manage to work things out.
Dave & Tina :: Monday, March 14, 2011



Feedback: Courteous and helpful service and prompt delivery. What more could one ask?
B. :: Monday, March 14, 2011



I found Clive Coffee online while researching new coffee grinders. It was great to find a place in town that had the one I was looking for. The service was friendly and a very knowledgeable employee helped me to diagnose the potential problem I was having with my old grinder. He even gave me information on how I might be able to fix my old one. After a valiant effort (I ended up breaking the old one beyond repair) I returned to buy the Rancillo Rocky grinder. The new grinder works great and the quality of the coffee I m now making at home is vastly improved. They also threw in a bag of their coffee that was great as well.
John :: Tuesday, March 08, 2011



Thank you for the ease of your website and extraordinary customer service. What a great experience! Made shopping for my husband's Technivorm coffee maker a breeze. Free shipping and tax made it even better. Will definitely use you for future purchases.
Lynda :: Monday, March 07, 2011



The person who took my order was well informed,courteous and very helpful Delivery was very prompt,and the product arrived in perfect condition. Thank you for a fine shopping experience.
Barry :: Thursday, March 03, 2011



Simply the best option for me. This product is easily assembled and cleaned. The coffee brews quickly, hot and delicious. This web site is setup so well particularly showing a demo from Cooks Illustrated.
Ken :: Wednesday, February 23, 2011



Customer Service from Clive Coffee is outstanding and I was very satisfied with the recent French Press purchase.
Mike :: Wednesday, February 09, 2011



Great shopping experience. You had what I needed and it arrived quickly. Thanks!
Heidi :: Wednesday, February 09, 2011



I appreciate your prompt service & reasonable prices.
Carol :: Monday, February 07, 2011



I was very impressed with the service from your company. I received my coffeemaker virtually the next day after placing my order. The extras that came free with the order, wonderful roasted coffee beans and filters, were great and really sets your company apart (in a good way) from any other company I have purchased from. I look forward to being a repeat customer.
Carol :: Thursday, February 03, 2011



I ordered two boxes of the Chemex filters and they arrived on time and well packaged. The price was great so I will certainly do business with Clive Coffee again.
James :: Monday, January 31, 2011



Excellent customer service, the girl who helped me was very nice, courteous and knowledgeable of the replacement part I needed. Shipping was quick and not over priced. Thanks so much
Wednesday, January 26, 2011



Superb service, no undue pressure. Miss Sylvia is a trusted member of the household filling her role as a reliable wake-up service. We recommend Clive at every opportunity we can, you've got a great business going. Thank you for the superb products and excellent coffees. We'll be back!
David & Patti :: Sunday, January 23, 2011



I love the frieling french press (3-4 cup). It provides one of best ways to brew coffee. But most of all the it is very elegant looking, well constructed and very well designed. It works so well and so easy to clean.
Thank you for providing such a wide variety of the best ways to enjoy coffee.
Saturday, January 22, 2011



Attentive, patient and generous service from start to finish!
Tuesday, January 18, 2011



Fast service and delivery. Great product.
Sunday, January 16, 2011



We researched coffee makers for over 2 mths. and decided to try the Technivorm KBT-741 Moccamaster. We absolutely LOVE it. The best coffee we ever drank. Thank you for the speedy delivery.
Friday, January 14, 2011



Thank you for the excellent service you provides for our purchase of a new Technivorm Coffee Maker. Communication was prompt and I never had to wonder about the status of the order. I will recommend you to my other coffee lovers!
Paul :: Monday, January 03, 2011



Super customer service! Great communication, excellent product, super fast shipping. Highly recommend!
Monday, January 03, 2011



Great service. Quick,prompt, and accurate. Just as you advertise.
Katherine :: Sunday, January 02, 2011



The coffee maker arrived quickly AND we loved getting all the extra goodies! (filters, coffee grounds) Thank you!
Saturday, January 1, 2011



You have very nice people working for you. Ordered a technivorm last year and the customer service was great. Coffee was excellent too.
Beatrix :: Saturday, January 1, 2011



The item arrived quickly and in good order. nice to have the additional items - the coffee, filters, and de-scaler - which helped in my decision to choose to order directly from you as opposed to Amazon. I always prefer dealing directly. free shipping was nice as well, and the no-tax due to Oregon based location another bonus.
Tod :: Friday, December 31, 2010



The product arrived exactly on time as requested. I was very impressed with the service I received. Your staff member Mark Hellweg was really helful. An excellent representative of your company. It makes such a difference when someone is so accommodating and he is a great representative of your company. Thanks Mark! My husband loved his Mochamaster Christmas present!!
Claire :: Wednesday, December 29, 2010



Easy site to use and very fast shipping...especially at holiday time! A+
Monday, December 27, 2010



This machine delivers and preserves phenomenal flavor all morning long.
S. :: Monday, December 27, 2010



I will definitely look to Clive Coffee the next time I need to order coffee supplies. Not only did they have exactly what I wanted: the Hario Buono Kettle and glass dripper for the ultimate coffee pour over, but the shipping was only $5.00! Next time I will order coffee beans as it got here in less than a couple of days. Very pleased.
Robin :: Sunday, December 26, 2010



It was a pleasure ordering from your company. I not only found the best price for a Frieling french press, but the service was outstanding. The item was shipping quickly and I was kept up to date with the status of my order with very kind and attentive e-mails.
I will definitely come to you for any other coffee needs and will recommend Clive Coffee to others.
Thanks!
December 21, 2010



Customer service (attentiveness to detail and prompt delivery was superb. Easy to order etc.
Bill :: December 16, 2010



Very easy to order and shipment arrived within 3 days. I am pleased with the product and pricing by Clive Coffee. I will order additional products in the future!
Nick :: December 12, 2010



Your coffee is the freshest and the best tasting. I had a concern re a broken piece of equipment once, and was so impressed with the service that I have ordered equipment and serving pieces ever since w/o a worry. Did I mention, your coffee was the bomb?
Lawrence :: December 12, 2010



I had a fantastic experience buying from Clive. Products were shipped promptly and the coffee arrived in Michigan just 3 days after it was roasted. The in-store discount was given for my online purchase. Best of all, my coffee-snob husband is enjoying his new brewer.
Thanks to all who packed and shipped in the busy day-after Thanksgiving hullabaloo!
December 10, 2010



I bought the "Frieling French Press :: 33 oz" and ordered it in mid-November. You had the cheapest price for this item and now I know that you have the best customer service as well. The item was out of stock and I was contacted immediately and told that I could get the item at $5 off plus free 3-day shipping. I didn't need the press until Christmas so agreed to wait. Your staff was incredibly friendly the few times I did email to get a status and once I was informed that my item shipped, I received my press the very next day. I bought this as a gift for my sister & brother-in-law and told them that if they are ever looking for coffee "stuff" to go to your website first - A+ customer service! (My uncle lives in Portland & recommended you to us - I'll be sending him a big "Thanks!" as well!)
Gwyn :: December 9, 2010



Your service was great- I dealt with Mark directly and as always he was friendly and helpful and did what he said he would.
December 8, 2010



I not only love the coffeemaker, but I found the customer service to be very helpful. There was a small glitch in the delivery, and they took care of it right away so that the coffeemaker arrived in time for my husband's birthday. I would definitely shop there again!
November 29, 2010



Excellent coffee maker-didn't realize I could get this good a quality without going to coffee house.
Service was excellent and I will make future purchases from Clive.
November 17, 2010



I bought the Baratza conical burr coffee grinder. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. We are very well satisfied with the performance of the grinder. Far superior to the others we've had. It grinds perfectly with almost no mess or static. I highly recommend it.
November 3, 2010



Correct part was shipped immediately. Great experience. Easy checkout. Would recommend.
November 1, 2010



Excellent! Placed order on Saturday and machine was here the following Wednesday. Just great. Looking forward to doing business again.
October 30, 2010



Thank you so much for the excellent service. I ordered my new coffee maker very late in the afternoon, with no expectation that it would still ship that day. I was amazed when I received my shipping notification! Since I am just in Seattle, it meant that I received my new coffee maker the next day! I appreciate the extra effort that someone took to get my order out!
Janet :: October 28, 2010



Unfortunately I needed to return a product. The return service and treatment was just as pleasant as ordering the product. That service, both ways, is a sign of a top notch company.
Sharon :: October 26, 2010



Excellent product and as always excellent service.
Theo :: October 13, 2010



I ordered coffee for my parents, and I particularly appreciated the personal attention your staff gave me in selecting 3 coffees for the gift package. I wouldn't know which ones to pick, so Thanks!
Brad :: October 8, 2010



Excellent service, products, and ship speed....you have created a desire for me to want and order some of your coffee...
Caleb :: October 2, 2010



I was in searching for a good coffee maker and found through Clive Coffee. Not only this, customer service was excellent. Especially Amanda has been very responsive in responding back. The sample coffee tasted great and can't wait to receive more. Thanks so much for such a pleasant experience.
Jamie :: September 29, 2010



I can't say enough about my experience with these guys. I live local, and Mark was kind enough to open shop on the weekend to show me the different espresso machines and grinders they have available. Since then the buying experience has been phenomenal. They not only know a lot about coffee and espresso, but they also believe in high quality customer service and it really shows. A for sure 10/10.
John :: September 20, 2010



Just a note to say thanks for your excellent service. I especially liked the reviews on your website for the different tools and coffees.They were what helped me to make a decision on which grinder, pot and coffee to buy. I do not do expresso, but really enjoy a robust cup of coffe that is not bitter. The difference from what I had been using and the Technivorm pot, Rocky grinder, and fresh beans end result has been astounding. Your inclusion of test beans with my orders has helped me become aware of the other possibilities that are out there.
Susan :: September 17, 2010



Service was great. My carafe arrived in 2 days with standard shipping. Pretty good from the west coast to the east. Go Ducks.
James :: September 16, 2010



When I ordered my new grinder, I had not figured that it would arrive within 2 days, as your coffee does; but there it was, before the holiday weekend. I had to call to ask how to set the grind, and got an immediate response over the phone on how to set it. What more can I say...your service is always great.
John :: September 14, 2010



clive coffee is one of my favorite companies to buy from. Their service is great! The products are all top of the line. Delivery in two days what better way to satisfy a customer too bleary eyed to know they were almost out of great coffee.
Linda :: September 10, 2010



You guys are amazing! I emailed you a question and you solved my problem within minutes. I ordered Cleancaf to get rid of the black residue in my Technivorm coffee maker and it worked perfectly. I also ordered the flow-through carafe lid. It was exactly what I needed and I couldn't be happier. No more cold coffee because my husband forgot to put the lid back on after brewing a pot. In fact, I'm going online right now and order both products for my sister and brother, who both have Technivorm coffeemakers. Thank you so much for the great customer service.
Mary Jane :: September 3, 2010



Great service. Shipped the day after I ordered.
Harry :: September 3, 2010



Your service and coffee are excellent. I enjoy doing business with you.
Lawrence :: August 28, 2010



your service (sales, delivery, etc.) was great. i like the grinder but it seems a little temperamental...but i'm learning. actually i do think it is more of a human problem than a mechanical one. beans i used too use are too oily and the grinder setting needs experimenting to get it right. but i'm pleased with the purchase and the quality of the grind i am getting.
Margaret :: August 27, 2010



I commend you on the espresso machine I bought and the excellent service I received from your sales staff. When I need coffee related supplies again, you will have a return customer. Thank you!
Page :: August 20, 2010



Very pleased with my purchase. This is the second pot we've ordered and I think it makes the best coffee ever.
Linda :: August 20, 2010



My husband and I were introduced to your coffeemaker by our son. He had read about it in Cooks Illustrated and decided to give it a try. He was wowed by it! My husband and I have visited him in CA several times over the past 2 yrs and have noticed how great the coffee is time and time again. Your coffeemaker consistantly makes a great cup of coffee and the pot stays HOT without becoming burnt or overcooked. Seeing is believing! I am glad my son took the chance on it and thrilled that I decided to purchase my own coffeemaker. We love it! The ordering process was simple and the coffeemaker was in our home less than a week later! Thank you.
Donna :: August 17, 2010



Got my Hario Skerton ridiculously fast. Love the product and love the service. You guys rock!
Charles :: August 13, 2010



Love the new coffee profile guide. It made selecting my most recent order so much easier. Also, I was glad to see that you were still carrying the Haiti Ranquitte. Much to my surprise, my husband loved it!
Ilene :: August 9, 2010



Site was easy to use and our order arrived quickly. Will return to Clive Coffee for future shopping.
Cindi :: August 4, 2010



My wife and I have two Technivorm MoccaMaster coffee makers. We brew a lot of coffee and can say that the MoccaMaster brews the best drip coffee we have ever tasted. This is a case of "you get what you pay for." They are worth every penny.
Don and Linda :: July 26, 2010



The coffee grinder sure put a smile on it's new owner's face. He is taking it camping. Had to get up the first morning and make fresh coffee with his french press. Said it was the best coffee he ever had. Thanks for the speedy service.
Dona :: July 20, 2010



The quality of your coffee and customer service remains top notch!
Ignatius :: July 12, 2010



Excellent prompt and courteous service
Theodora :: July 7, 2010



Service was excellent, products arrived promptly, packaged very well, in excellent condition. A great company with which to do business, will recommend enthusiastically! A pleasure to find this in today's world!
Bill :: July 1, 2010



You can believe all the great comments about both Clive Coffee & the Dutch-built Technivorm Moccamaster coffee maker. I happen to live in Portland & after several hours of researching home coffee makers on the web, I picked one up the other day at their facility. It truly does make a vastly superior cup of coffee, and it is very well made. The sample coffees that they gave me are exceptional as well. I hesitated about this purchase because I thought it wouldn't be worth the money, but I am now convinced it certainly is -- to me -- and now I am glad that I have this wonderful machine. Oh, when I called to say a second flat lid for the thermal carafe was missing from the box, the one that lets the carafe fit back under the filter holder (the other one for table use doesn t), they promptly mailed one out to me. You simply can t go wrong in dealing with this company or their products!
Dan :: July 1, 2010



You guys are great. I hope things are well for you guys. I just got my first shipment and needless to say am loving it. Keep up the good work.
Richard :: July 1, 2010



Wow. Best coffee maker I have ever owned. I am hooked.
Mark :: June 18, 2010



One is lucky to find a local business with great customer service. It is rare to find great customer service on the internet. This was my first purchase with Clive Coffee, and every aspect of my order in every way exceeded my expectations. It is nice to find a website and a company that acts like they actually care about their customers! Thank you, Clive Coffee. You are awesome.
John :: June 15, 2010



Got my new Rancilio Rocky grinder the other day and thanks! Have Technivorm coffee maker and am fooling around to get right grind number, pretty good fun! Thanks for 2 very good products!
Mark :: June 5, 2010



Just wanted to let you know how much my parents love the Rancillio Silvia machine. My father (87 years old) has had a large Pavoni from the early 1960s from Italy. He was having problems getting parts for the machine but refused to stop making coffee on it even though it was difficult for him at his age. (It has the old pull lever.)

He had bought my sister and I each a Rancillio Lucy 20 years ago but did not purchase one for himself. We have enjoyed ours.

Finally I decided to purchase one for him and my mom even though they continued to refuse. It was delivered a week ago and they have been using it everyday. It makes great coffee like our Lucy. They are very pleased with it.

Your delivery was on time and they appreciated the free cup and pound of coffee -great coffee by the way!

Thanks so much for your help and I do hope to get by and meet you all when I am in the Portland area. Your service is wonderful!

Joanna :: June 6, 2010



Hello, PERFECT! The order was shipped very fast, which I totally appreciated as I was in desperate need of my grinder. It was packed efficiently but safely, also appreciated. And I love the product.
Monti :: June 3, 2010



I had apparently ordered something from your website that had been discontinued and received an email to that effect after ordering. When I called in to ask about it, the gentleman I spoke with explained the situation and very graciously agreed to have them shipped directly from Frieling. I think very highly of your pleaseant and knowledgeable people in customer service. I couldn't have been better taken care of anywhere. The porcelain cones are top quality. Thank you.
Jim :: June 1, 2010



The products we ordered arrived safe and sound. The technivorm coffee maker and the coffee grinder are proving to be great purchases. We are sampling the different coffees you sent, and appreciate the chance to see which roast best fits our taste. I REALLY appreciated the informational insert you provided with the coffee maker. It helped a lot--especially regarding the best grind to start with on the grinder. Also, we were pleased to receive the items so quickly. The other supplier we were looking at gave an arrival date of 4-6 weeks.
Jeanine :: May 30, 2010



Just wanted to say thanks for the sample of coffee you shared last week during the Google's presentation. Excellent coffee, very smooth and natural.
Alvaro :: May 28, 2010



Excellent work, efficient and well-done! We LOVE thiscoffeemaker AND the different coffees you included.
Richard :: May 17, 2010



The large Beehouse pourover cone and the 22oz. pot arrived in perfect shape, and with a #4 filter it makes perfect coffee!
Peter :: May 14, 2010



I bought an Andreja Premium Expresso Machine from the folks at Clive Coffee. The staff were very professional and the service was second to none. Clive Coffee rocks.
David :: May 13, 2010



I love your coffee beans. After trying the complimentary sample coffee that you sent with my order of a Baratza Virtuoso coffee grinder & Freiland French Press, I decided to buy from your company instead of Peet's in California.

Beans are delicious. I would recommend it to all my guests who love my coffee.
Virginia :: May 12, 2010



The service was excellent. The coffee was delightful - excellently freshly roasted. What a treat to get coffee that is so fresh and delicious! I enjoy Amanda's blog also.

We've been spreading the word about your Haiti project. It is one of the best ideas I've ever heard of, especially from the viewpoint of a gardener, botanist and plant community ecologist. Bravo! I intend to make another purchase shortly.

The Haitian coffee was divine, and so was your Papua New Guinea.
Diane :: May 7, 2010



Service was great as always. So is the coffee.
Ilene :: April 28, 2010



I just received my first Clive Coffee order and wow. You guys really have something going. I placed the order YESTERDAY and bam, it was there on my doorstep. Also, I love the little extra touch you guys do of putting those adorable clips on the coffee bags.
Krisanna :: April 28, 2010



The technivorm coffee maker is outstanding!!!! didn't know coffee could be vthat good!!! also, the coffee grinder is the best.............not to mention your great coffee!!! can't enough good things about your products and service!!! great help.......... Many Thanks.
Tom :: April 27, 2010



I purchased a Technivorm CDT Moccamaster Coffee Maker and a gold filter. I am completely satisfied with my purchase and furthermore am completely satisfied with the service I have received from Clive Coffee. The two pounds of sample coffees were accidentally left out of my shipment. I called the 800 number and it was taken care of within a minute. I look forward to purchasing coffee and additional equipment from Clive Coffee in the future.
Darren :: April 27, 2010



I received the Andreja this afternoon in prefect working order. The espresso was fantastic! I'll try a cappuccino tomorrow.
David :: April 26, 2010



I'm sure you're tired of hearing this, but I just got my coffee maker and...wow! This is the best home-brewed coffee I've ever had in my life, and I was using over-the-counter pre-ground Starbucks!
Laura :: April 23, 2010



Quick delivery. Good coffee. Thanks for supporting the EcoCafe in Ranquitte by roasting their coffee!
Brent :: April 21, 2010



I enjoyed your service. My purchase got here sooner than expected. Email correspondence was timely and informative. My Moccamaster arrived in perfect working order. Supplying samples of your fine coffee is a good idea. Not only does it show me how delicious coffee can be, but it adds to the satisfaction of my purchase. Excellent job.
G :: April 19, 2010



My coffee machine arrived with a defect which I discovered with my second use. I telephoned your service number and they immediately sent me a repalcement machine and a return label to return the defective machine. They new one is perfect. Good prompt service. Thanks
Gene :: April 18, 2010



The service at Clive is amazing. You guys always manage to get the coffee out in record speed and I really value the quality of the packaging. The bags are sealed up TIGHT, which is something that coffee folks appreciate. Every single bag of coffee that I've purchased has been incredible. You folks really know how to roast some beans, they're incredible. I recommend Clive to everyone I know here in Richmond, VA.
Chad :: April 12, 2010



The service was great! I was so surprised at how quickly I received my order. I ordered on line on saturday and received my order on Tuesday. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Nelson :: April 11, 2010



Just to let you know I received my coffee today, Saturday 4/10/10!!! That was unbelievably quick and I just wanted to say thank you so much and I really think your coffee is something special!!
Ellen :: April 10, 2010



Your service was wonderful. You were helpful, polite, informative and expedient.
Gary :: April 7, 2010



This was my second order with Clive Coffee and I'm still very happy with this company. The shipment came extremely fast. In fact, I received the email that it was shipped the same day it showed up at my door. Funny! And, I'm still really enjoying this coffee. So glad you offer Brazilian coffees. Thanks! Keep up the good work.
Alisyn :: April 05, 2010



My moccamaster coffee brewer came when promised, in perfect condition and was exactly what I had ordered. So far my wife and I have been delighted with our purchase and the coffee made has enhanced the start of our day.
Allan :: April 05, 2010



Thanks for the great customer service. The coffee maker I bought broke, and when I called, you guys had a warranty replacement shipped out the same day. You've got a loyal customer now.
Peter :: March 24, 2010



I just wanted you to know I received my new coffee maker very quickly. I am pleased with the coffee maker and was very pleasantly surprised with the samples of coffee you included. I am excited to try your coffee and make a future order. Thank you so very much for your easy, quick, and efficient service. I will look forward to ordering from your company in the future.
Lori :: March 24, 2010



Love your decaf beans - very mild and favorful. Thanks.
Virginia :: March 24, 2010



Wow!!! Incredible service. I ordered a grinder from you and figured I didn't need it too soon so got the free shipping. But I received it the next day! Amazing! Thanks so much.
Tami :: March 11, 2010



I bought two bags before Xmas from you: A Columbian and a Kenya AA. My opinion? Well, an English teacher told me more than 50 years ago never, Never to use the original word to describe that word. For example we wouldn't say the color green looks green, would we?

But, with that in mind let me just say about your coffee----Ah!! Clive Coffee tastes just like coffee. Terrific aroma and a smooth, acid-free taste that will have you saying, "A coffee that tastes just the way I want to always remember coffee tasting." I'll be calling to come down and pick up some more soon!
Don :: January 11, 2010



Mahalo for your help! I love the coffee maker and it has made lots of coffee since Christmas morning.
David :: December 29, 2009



I normally unsubscribe from any corporate mailings but you guys are doing something right. I actually enjoy your marketing materials. Happy holidays to you and I hope Clive Coffee has a great year in 2010. You've certainly been helping my husband and me be more productive at work. Your coffee is....potent! :-)
Natalie :: December 21, 2009



Just received my coffee for the holidays. Opening the box was like aromatherapy!
Regina :: December 15, 2009



Thanks so much for your help; all 26 Technivorm coffee makers, grinders, filter and coffee are wrapped up pretty and ready to go....I�ll send you a picture.

Thank you also for the coffee � we can�t wait to try it!

Have a good holiday!
christine (Dreamworks Studio) :: December 1, 2009



Awesome. great products. I did a ton of research and I love my moccamaster. I was afraid my husband would think it was over the top but he LOVES the bubbles. you would think he was four. the coffee is hot, stays hot and the pot is easy to use. the filter is the best i've found. thanks for making the best available and sending it so quickly.
Susan :: November 28, 2009



Thanks. Your customer service is incredible. I wish more companies followed your model.
Jason :: November 25, 2009



My order took almost a week to arrive and somehow this made its arrival that much more enjoyable - packaged perfectly. Glad I found your company!
Bernadette :: November 18, 2009



Thanks for making these great coffee machines available. Pleasure - true pleasure - doing business with you.
G. :: November 11, 2009



Fast shipping. Great communication. Would buy from again.
G. :: November 10, 2009



Prompt service, reasonable price.
Christopher :: November 8, 2009



Excellent. Good customer service.
Anthony :: November 4, 2009



Excellent service & products, knowledgeable and eager to advise - most helpful!
Thomas :: November 3, 2009



Have communicated well. Part of my order is backordered, they were clear about that & when it would arrive.
Daren :: November 2, 2009



I received my filter holder today and it works great. Thank you for what I consider to be exceptional customer service. Very best regards
Thomas :: October 30, 2009



Product was carefully packaged and promptly shipped with extra directions for product operation.
John :: October 17, 2009



continued great service from your store. i'll make sure i continue to buy from you for my next purchase.
Pat :: October 17, 2009



You should definitely consider Clive Coffee for your next purchase. They have excellent products, responsive customer service, and very tasty coffee. I purchased a Le Lit espresso machine, 57mm tamper, and Rocky grinder from Clive. The first two came without a hitch. When they sold out of the grinder, the Clive rep went through a troublesome procedure of getting it drop-shipped, and it was at my house in a couple of days. And I was continually updated on the grinder's status. It was really nice to have a company go out of their way to satisfy the customer. I am ecstatic about my setup and highly recommend Clive Coffee. You won't be disappointed.
Zach :: October 14, 2009



excellent service, excellent coffee!
Bonnie :: October 14, 2009



I am really digging your single origin espresso. It is so smooth and chocolaty it makes a great double and also a very smooth americano and also goes great with milk. It is one of my new favorites. I have not tried the Yirg yet, but in the morning I will. I like that you don't roast so dark and let the lighter notes of the coffee come through instead of the really oily beans that I have grown to dislike. Keep up the great work. Thank you!
Chad :: October 12, 2009



We felt that Clive Coffee was aware of our order and attentive to it even though we did not require any special attention. We now make great coffee, too.
Raoul :: October 9, 2009

We ordered the technivorm coffee maker for our fortieth wedding anniversary because of an article we read in Cook's Illustrated magazine about how to make the best coffee. After searching the web, we decided to order from Clive coffee. Ordering was easy, the shipment was delivered quickly and included with the coffee maker were paper filters and four different whole bean coffees. Good experience from beginning to end. Thanks
Carol :: October 8, 2009



Everything was smooth and easy.
Douglas :: October 8, 2009



The seller delivered the ordered coffee maker in a short amount of time, exactly as promised.
David :: October 7, 2009



Excellent information on the site. Making a purchase decision is easy here. Good prices, fast shipping.
Richard :: October 7, 2009



Terrific service!
Edward :: October 6, 2009



Just as good as it gets.
Edward :: October 5, 2009



Wow! Was not expecting next day delivery. Thank you. Had some today and it is great. We are hooked. Be sending bags as holiday gifts.
Doug :: October 5, 2009



You guys rock. One day shipping to Beaverton - yoo-hoo! I was the first person to write a review on your website (including pictures) I wrote another one on Amazon.com (which doesn't seem to be showing up right now) and gave a "shout out" to clivecoffee.com on the review. Keep up the great customer service!
Julie :: October 5, 2009



Thank you for the timely and detailed explanation. I really appreciate that level of customer service. I have my own business and it blows me away with some of the horrible email responses I get from web based companies. I will take your advice and purchase the machine and the grinder as they sound like a good match.
Sean :: October 5, 2009



Just wanted to tell you that the LeLit has arrived. In a word, Brilliant! Not only is it as pictured and described, but it was an easy set up too. With one quick read of the instructions I was able to pull a perfect cup with loads of crema in my first attempt! This is exactly what I've been looking for for years. How wonderful to receive it during my birthday weekend.
Thank you for the coffee beans as well. There might be traces of my previous blend still in the Mazzer Luigi hopper but I can already taste the chocolatey/caramel goodness of your coffee. Even though you've only made like $25 bucks off the sale of the machine, you've got yourself a new customer.
Brian :: Sep 28, 2009



Our experience with CLIVE COFFEE has been a TEN on a scale of zero to TEN:
1. Very prompt service. Delivery was within 24 hours. Unit was very well packed.
2. Easy to assemble and operate.
3. Free sample coffee packages (4 of them) is the same as a $44 discount!! (17% off list).
4. Free shipping and no sales tax also a definite plus.
5. Pre-heating/warming the thermos is most easily accomplished in our house by running Water through the machine without filter/coffee. This results in HOT water to warm The thermos prior to brewing. Our house hot water is set at 145 deg F to prevent scalding Of children in the shower; plus, early in the morning water is wasted running until the water gets from the hot water heater to the kitchen sink.
6. The unit exceeds our expectations; and, far exceeds the performance of any coffee makers We have had in the past.
7. We are very, very happy��for once having something that DOES perform as advertised.

Orriss Family :: Sep 24, 2009

Just wanted to let you know the replacement caraffe arrived yesterday....WHAT a difference! I just thought I had wasted my $$$ on the Technivorm machine w/o your heads up that something was amiss (from your prior email) Keep up the great service!
David :: Sep 21, 2009



Had my first and second cup of delicious coffee! Thank you!
Walt :: Sep 12, 2009



Ok, I will be the first person to admit that I am not a coffee nut...but I love this coffee maker! I had some pre grinded coffee and this coffee maker works wonders. I really look forward to my first cup of coffee. Before, I never finished all the coffee in my cup but now I do. I realize that I spent quite a bit of $$$ but it is worth it. I bought this more expenseive machine, because I figure that I will save $. I have gone through several rather expensive coffee machines that quit or leaked. I can't wait until I try the beans that you sent with the coffee machine. You may have just made a coffee snob out of me.
Charlotte :: Sep 8, 2009



We are nearly finished the sample coffees you sent and next we will have the Nicaragua coffee I ordered. The coffee has been great!! We have really enjoyed the flavour and freshness. I ordered Espresso coffee today and look forward to trying it. Thanks for suggesting the sample package. I hope you continue to have great success!!
George :: Sep 8, 2009



We received the new Carafe yesterday and tried it out this morning. The difference in the temperature of the coffee after 20 minutes in the carafe was significant! Thank you for the wonderful service. I recommend you guys to all of my coffee obsessed friends.
Janet :: Sep 8, 2009



The moccamaster is everything I expected. And the Clive coffee is great. Thanks for the great products and service.
Joanne :: Sep 8, 2009



thanks for the filter holder and fast service, you have made my day and restored my hopefulness'
Bruce :: Sep 4, 2009



You're the best...nothing ever exceeds good customer service and relationships so thanks!
Jim :: Sep 2, 2009



The Technivorm arrived yesterday afternoon. I made a pot last night of our "regular" coffee and it was considerably more flavorful. My second pot that I made this morning is just as good as first, so I think I have measurements down. Now it is time to try your coffee, I am looking forward to an every more delicious cup. Thanks for your help.
Wayne :: August 9, 2009



The coffee maker is the best. It is hard to believe that there is such a difference in taste. I have not been using cheap coffee makers all these years � all in the $100 - $150 range, but I just didn�t know about Technivorn. Some friends of mine have one and they made me a believer. It looks like a science experiment on my counter and I think really elevates my IQ, in the minds of others!
Karen :: August 3, 2009



Thanks for shipping the Technivorm and the bags of coffee! We were very pleased with the machine's performance this morning. PDX businesses are the best!
Chris :: July 30, 2009



Thanks for all the help. I'm going to be honest... I love you right now. I'm very excited to try this all out!

Thanks again.
Jeff :: July 23, 2009



I am so excited...like most customers that you've probably seen purchasing the Technivorm, I did extensive research and read lots of reviews. Once I decided on the Technivorm, it was tough deciding on the square or round version (height/carafe vs aesthetic issue...) Just some feedback...I ordered from your company because you have a very good FAQ section...the reviews are orderly/selectable and well, like other companies you were willing to give me a couple of bags of coffee-along with free shipping. What made Clive Coffee stand out for me was the thoughtful, honest, and full disclosure opinion that I found at coffeegeek.com

Anyways, thanks for everything...just thought I'd let you know that I appreciate your customer service (talked with someone-I think his name was Mark?) and your personal touch!
Tina :: July 21, 2009



Thanks very much for the press Mark, the wrapping was great, and my Mother loves it! I appreciate your attentive service.
David :: July 14, 2009



Reading the reviews was VERY HELPFUL to me as I decided whether and what to purchase. In particular: the recommendation to use a setting of 30 on the grinder made a big difference, and we bought the CDT model because of feedback that with the CDT model the pot fits back under the filter with the lid on it. It's a small thing but really seems to matter. We even shimmed up the main unit a fraction of an inch and took off the drip plate so we can still be half asleep and it's easy to replace the pot with lid on. But, we're not half asleep for long! Love it!.
Karen :: July 9, 2009



Phenomenal customer service and superb coffee. I'll be back.
Erick :: July 8, 2009



Just a note to THANK YOU so much for the recent shipment! I had the good fortune to call your business last Thursday for some general questions on the Technivorm line of coffee makers. The gentleman I talked to was really friendly, helpful and didn�t project a �sales� mode � I decided during the call to go ahead with a purchase of a Moccamaster. Placing the order online on Thursday, the product arrived on Saturday, with Friday as a generally regarded holiday! The shipment was perfectly packed, and everything worked out very well.
As a result of the great telephone interaction and the totally surprising shipment, I really do plan on continuing to order coffee through your business � it really was great service, and I did really appreciate the low-key approach to purchasing a rather expensive coffee unit. (But, on the other hand, IT�S A GREAT COFFEE MAKER!)
Thanks again for the great service, and what is turning out to be a great product �
Michael :: July 7, 2009



I received my coffee maker today and love it so far. Thanks for the fast service.
Stan :: July 6, 2009



In these times that we live in, its refreshing to deal with someone who cares and goes the extra mile to ensure that their customers are treated with respect. It means much to me.
Thanks for all...
Derek :: June 30, 2009



Extremely responsive, courteous, and prompt. Would definitely consider ordering equipment from Clive Coffee again, and would most certainly order their coffee beans! Very good roast quality.
Jonathan :: June 39, 2009



First and foremost, let me just say that this is an example of THE BEST customer service I have EVER witnessed. Thank you so much! :) Awesome coffee.
Jill :: June 24, 2009



Just wanted to let you know the coffee arrived Saturday. I've tried the Sumatra and it is exceptional!? Is the Sumatra from a special lot?? It has been a long time since I have had a Sumatra that well balanced and smooth. I haven't been drinking it lately because it hasn't been up to par... this one is great!
Look forward to trying the others also...
Barbara :: June 22, 2009



Le'lit showed up yesterday evening. Packing was great, no damage. Got to check it out this morning and all of the features seem to work. It sure looks like it's built good. Plenty of hot water and plenty of steam. You know, I have been drinking espresso and cappuccino for going on 40 years. I had my little steam driven Krups a few years back and a $69 steam pump Delonghi with a pressurized portafilter that didn't create 9 bar so it never created an espresso just strong coffee.
I am certainly a novice but have read a lot and understand the fundamentals. I also believe what I've read that it's all about the grind. I will hold any reservations about my grinder for now. It is a $100 flat burr grinder that seems to perform well. If and when the time comes I'll keep you in mind for my grinder
Well it's been a couple of hours and guess what ... I can make espresso. Check it out...crema and frothy milk. who would have guessed...I can make espresso.
Such a long way to go and a lot to learn but it is obvious to me that this machine is exactly what I expected.
Thanks for all of the help and the quick shipping. I'll keep you posted as time goes on. Thanks again.
Chuck :: June 20, 2009



They delivered in very prompt manner. They have followed-up with emails. Great store.
Ronald :: June 20, 2009



I placed my order at 3:17pm PDT 6/18/09. The UPS truck left my driveway about 15 minutes ago, make it 3:09pm PDT 6/19/09. From Portland OR through Seattle and Burlington to Mount Vernon WA in under 24 hours!!!
The only way to get it here faster would be by Taxi, and that definitely would not be "free shipping".
I haven't even opened the box yet, but I had to thank you for the speed in support of my coffee fantasy
Shane :: June 19, 2009



You are amazing. I filled out the survey with some of my minor concerns and within a day or so you send me an update with solutions to all my problems. I am so impressed. Keep up the good work!
Mary :: June 13, 2009



What differentiates Clive Coffee from even the most respected names in coffee is their ability to combine superior product with superior assistance. Clive will take however long to truly understand your palate, then will carefully match your desires with the right coffee bean, the right equipment at the right price. The mammoth corporations provide a decent product but nothing compared to the complexity and freshness of Clive. If you want to enjoy your coffee like you would a fine wine or fine chocolate, then Clive is the only way to go
Jim :: June 8, 2009



Thanks so much!!! Great coffeemaker and even better customer service. It's nice when a company over delivers instead of over promising. Be back for a Nissan carafe soon.
Jeff :: June 5, 2009



excellent customer service and superb product
Brian :: June 5, 2009



The order processed and arrived very quickly! We love the technivorm coffee maker-expensive but worth it! I would buy from this seller again,but I hope our coffee maker lives a good long life....
Stephanie :: June 3, 2009



It is rare that I find myself writing this type of email because it is human nature that we are more willing to take the time to complain than we are to offer praise. But it is also rare that I encounter the level of customer service that I received from you.
I ordered a Technivorm KBT-741 coffee maker last Wednesday. Even though I ordered it after the cut-off time of 3PM, I received a notice that evening that my order had shipped. Probably owing somewhat to my proximity from your store, I got the coffee maker the next day. I believe it really shows class that you included packages of your coffee and some filters, so that I would be ready to go right out of the box.
I think that you have excellent products and I am VERY impressed with your operations.
THANK YOU!!
Kevin :: May 29, 2009



Dealing with Mark of Clive Coffee has been a breath of fresh air. No pushing for the nth degree to maximize the purchase. Instead, well grounded advice is rendered along with a focus on customer satisfaction, which is indeed a rare commodity these days.
Mark has provided consistently effective suggestions that have assisted in my drive to improve technique and find the proper equipment and coffee to fit my needs for both regular coffee and espresso. It isn't a one-size-fits-all operation and to know that there is a source out there who is willing and able to offer sound advice and back it up in both product and service that goes beyond expectations, is indeed noteworthy.
Greg :: May 27, 2009



your Brazil is really great stuff. I'm still working on some of the other blends too which have been very good too, but so far the Brazil is nice, flavorful and a provides a nice even balance of everything.
Lance :: May 27, 2009



No problems with Clive Coffee. The coffee maker arrived when they said it would. Order was processed quickly.
David :: May 27, 2009



Hi....just a little note....my husband purchased the Moccamaster for me a few months back. Boy, I am I lovin' it....At first, I felt he might have gone overboard, as I was used to using a simple french press. But what a difference!!! Also, I was a die-hard Illy Med. Roast Expresso whole bean junkie, but I tried the Guat. organic bean that came with the Moccamaster - enjoyable! I also have ordered the Peru Organic (love it) and am trying the Clive Expresso....keep up the good work
Margo :: May 22, 2009



product was well packaged and delivered promptly.
Colleen :: May 22, 2009



Wow! Love the coffee maker. Expectations all satisfied. Thanks!
Julie :: May 18, 2009



It arrived this afternoon and the coffee you guys included was a nice surprise. The coffee filters were also terrific. The service is great !!!! something unheard of in this country for a while.
Tom :: May 18, 2009



We received our coffee maker and used it today! So far so good- HOT coffee with no bitterness. Thanks for the comped coffee beans- look forward to trying them.
Betsy :: May 18, 2009



You guys kick so much ass it is insane. I totally appreciate how fresh the coffee is......the first time I ground it up and filled the press I got an overflow situation because of all of the carbon dioxide that released due to the extreme freshness of the beans!!!!
Bruce :: May 14, 2009



I also am appreciating the best coffee in my life and will highly recommend Clive to anyone who wants to buy one based on your wonderful service.
John :: April 30, 2009



Your coffee is the only coffee that I have has that is as good as my home-roasted, and that is high praise.
Tom :: April 23, 2009



--- It's all about serving the customer (me) and you guys are on top of your game. Sending me the part I need to remedy my drip problem with the filter basket without any hassle is a "wow" experience. You don't get those all the time.
Thank you.
Bruce :: April 7, 2009



I want to take a moment to tell you how much we like our Technivorm coffee maker. We haven't had such good coffee around our house in a long time!
Susan :: April 7, 2009



My experience with Clive coffee was most positive. The product that I ordered was overdue in delivery but the people at Clive kept us in the loop as to delivery date as best they could.
Patricia :: April 6, 2009



Got the replacement lid (and the bag of coffee!!)
P.S. The coffee maker originally shipped with a bag of your coffee and we have really enjoyed it.
Thanks much.
Carl :: April 6, 2009



Thank you for sending a small bag of Sumatra Mandheling Retro coffee. It smells wonderful, and we will have some tonight.
Yes, The Technivorm Moccamaster coffee brewers is "wonderful," and worth every penny. I couldn't believe "how good" the first cup and every cup since of coffee has been. So, this is what "damn good coffee" taste like, a quote from the movie "Twin Peaks."
Thanks
Stephen :: April 6, 2009



I received prompt and courteous service from Clive Coffee. As described, the 1-cup Frieling coffee press IS substantial as a Sherman tank. This heavy duty French press is beautiful, easy to use, and makes wonderful coffee! I also loved the free sample of fresh-roasted coffee beans!
Carl :: April 10, 2009

Shipment of the coffee maker I ordered was delayed from the Dutch manufacturer. Clive kept me informed throughout the process, which was excellent customer service. I am delighted with my new coffee maker...
Frank :: April 3, 2009



Just a quick note to say thanks. I have never worked with any company that kept it's customers as informed of the order progress as your company has done. I realized that the issues surrounding my order were out of your control and that your company got my order filled as soon as possible. I appreciate that kind of service!
Tim :: April 3, 2009



Received everything, kids love the coffee maker. My daughter said the coffee taste so good she loves to drink it black now.
Thanks for your help.
Mike :: March 31, 2009



I just wanted to let you know we received our Technivorm on Wednesday and couldn't be more thrilled - best cup of coffee we've had!
Jenn :: March 30, 2009



We appreciate your good service; the frequent communications regarding getting the Technivorm Mochamaster. The process is easy. The coffee is great.
LoRetta :: March 30, 2009



I just wanted to let you know that it was worth the wait. Although the CDT arrived Tuesday, it's been a very hectic week. I made my first pot today and thoroughly enjoyed it. I look forward to many more transforming coffee experiences.
Ilene :: March 30, 2009



It isn't often I have the pleasure of dealing with people such as you and the others at Clive Coffee. I have been anxiously waiting for my Technivorm coffee maker and am delighted with it now that I have it - It was worth the wait. I especially appreciate that you kept me posted on its progress. It certainly made the wait easier. Anyway, you did a terrific job handling a situation that might otherwise have been a problem.
Thanks much,
John :: March 28, 2009



Just ordered the coffee maker. Thanks for all your help. I believe Clive Coffee has the Best Customer Service in this industry! Thanks again.
Yoko :: March 28, 2009



I have to say the coffee is amazing- Technivorm does live up to its hype in my view. Thanks much.
Phil :: March 28, 2009



I sent a message to Clive Coffee but I wanted to thank you personally for keeping me informed about the delay and ETA of the coffee maker. It arrived, as promised, on the 25th and we have been enjoying great coffee ever since. Thanks so much for your excellent communication and the 1lb of delicious coffee included. I can't wait to try it. A happy customer.
Stephanie :: March 28, 2009



I got the coffee pot today and was very happy with the awesome look and of course the taste of the first cup was awesome! I know i will be happy with this and already and gearing up to buy one for a best friend of mine! LOVE IT! Thanks so much!

karin ehlers :: Jan 22, 2009



We ordered a coffee maker from Clive Coffee this past December. Due to factors beyond the control of the Clive Coffee Team - extreme weather conditions and problems with the importer and customs - the delivery of the coffee maker was delayed. br>
However, the customer support we received from Mark at Clive Coffee was outstanding! He kept us informed of the status of the order and offered product and shipping alternatives. Ulately, the machine did arrive and we are very happy with the performance of our new machine. br>
We highly recommend Clive Coffee as your choice for coffee and brewing equipment. br>
S. Johnson :: Jan 19, 2008



Exceptional, personalized service.
Jon Prentice :: Jan 3, 2009



I appreciated being informed about the slight delay in sending out my order. The wait was not long and I was informed when it was shipped. I still got my order when I expected it.
gloria j sommer :: Dec 24, 2008



very good.
thomas a hanlon :: Dec 10, 2008



Coffee maker was delayed in shipping from overseas. Clive Coffee was very upfront about delays, providing great updates on when to expect arrival, and offering discounted next-day shipping to make our deadline. Very pleased with the prompt responses and on-time performance.
Heike Larson :: Dec 7, 2008



Very good customer support.
Charles E. Stanford :: Dec 7, 2008



The Technivorm coffee maker makes excellent, very hot coffee, and Mark's customer service was terrific in helping me decide which model to order. I will buy from Clive Coffee again, no question.
Paula J. Eisenberg :: Dec 7, 2008



The Technivorm works as advertised, the coffee is great and we're very satisfied with it. But if you want to ship me another one, feel free. As long as it's free.

Just kidding.
Wayne Enslow :: Nov 18, 2008

Outstanding experience. My espresso machine was well packaged (important for such a heavy item) and it arrived in a timely manner. The coffee is also very good.
JEFFREY R JOERS :: Nov 11, 2008



Excellent customer service.
Lynne Gabrielsen :: Nov 11, 2008
