We have a different process for returning espresso machines
To exchange an item, simply return it using the return process detailed above and place a new order online or over the phone for the item you want.
The Clive Coffee shipping program offers free or highly discounted shipping fees and is an integral part of the way we take care of our customers. This shipping program can be broken down into several categories:
We want you to be able to get your coffee quickly without paying ridiculous amounts for shipping! Use the shopping cart to see what shipping options and charges are available to you, based on product selection.
In the USA (lower 48 states) we will send out your order over $75 with free ground shipping or discounted expedited shipping. It's that simple.
Most of the espresso machines we sell are imported from Italy to New York. We warehouse our own stock in Portland, Oregon, but we optimize each order depending on shipment address and inventory levels to get it to you the fastest way possible. This means that some orders will ship from our warehouse in Portland, and others will ship directly from the importer in New York. We will use your address and shipment method to determine the fastest way to get your machine to you. If you have any questions on how your machine will be shipped, contact us at 800.520.2890
Shipping charges for orders outside of the USA are often discounted below our cost. Use the shopping cart to calculate shipping charges. We do not ship espresso machines or espresso grinders outside of the USA.
Shipping charges for orders to Alaska, Hawaii and PO Boxes may be charged higher rates for heavy or large items. We will contact you if a shipping surcharge is required. This is usually the case for oversized items like drip coffee makers and espresso machines. The typical charge for shipping to Alaska and Hawaii is $20-30. We will discount the charge by the amount that we normally pay for similar orders to customers in the lower 48.
Once an item has been shipped, we normally cannot cancel or change the shipment. If necessary, we can send a return label once the item has been received. If the item must be redirected or returned to us while in transit, you may be liable for any service fees we are assessed by the carrier.
If you encounter a problem with your equipment purchase from Clive Coffee, we are here to help. Please read through these policies to understand how we will take care of any issue that arises with your machine.
To receive warranty troubleshooting and technical support from Clive Coffee, you must provide proof of purchase in the form of your original order number. For orders placed online or over the phone, this information would have been emailed to you at order confirmation and also included on the packing slip.
Replacement parts and labor costs to correct defects in materials and workmanship are covered for a period of one year from the original delivery date.
Shipping costs related to warranty replacements or repairs will be covered by Clive Coffee for the first 30 days from the time you received your machine. This means we will pay for UPS ground shipment costs both ways. After 30 days, shipment costs are the responsibility of the customer. *See Notes Below
Please keep in mind that general "wear and tear" on parts that are subject to deterioration due to normal use, such as gaskets, filters, grinder burrs, plastic parts like bean hoppers, and so on, are not covered by this warranty.
Extended one year warranty has the same coverage as the one year warranty just extending the warranty for an additional year.
All warranty work is done by Clive Coffee or the importer of the machine (such as Chris Coffee Service and Rancilio NA). Some manufacturers, such as Baratza Grinders do perform their own warranty service.
When you call us please note that we will try to troubleshoot the issue over the phone, so please have the machine in front of you so that you can perform a few basic diagnostic actions. If we are unable to resolve your issue we will provide you with detailed information on how to return your machine to our service department.
For additional points regarding shipping responsibilities, please refer to the rules for our return policy.
At Clive Coffee, we invest the necessary time to insure that your equipment arrives safely and in good working order, so most equipment is bench tested by our technicians before shipment. We also use quality packing materials, and use double boxing when necessary.
We advise you to inspect your purchase when it first arrives for damage during shipment.
Please inspect your package when you receive it from UPS. If there is evidence of exterior damage to the shipping carton and the delivery person is present, ask them to note it on their delivery manifest and request a damage claim form. Should it be necessary for you to submit a damage claim the notation on the manifest may prove to be very helpful. If you find that your machine is damaged from shipping, please call UPS at 1-800-742-5877 to report the damage. You must also contact us within 5 business days. Make sure that you keep all packaging (boxes, shipping labels, packing material, etc.) as UPS will need to inspect not only the machine but the packaging as well. For UPS terms and conditions click here . Once we receive a claim number from UPS, we will be more than happy to take care of the problem to your satisfaction.
Before returning an espresso machine or grinder, you must call or email us to obtain a Return Authorization Agreement (RAA) from our company.
Once we have received your request, we will send you additional details regarding the return procedure, such as how to prepare the machine for shipping and packaging instructions. You should return the (RAA) to us if you understand and agree to the terms and conditions of the statement; we will then issue a Return Authorization (RA) number, which must appear on the outside of the box.
We will process your warranty issue as quickly as possible. Once we receive your machine in our repair center, we commit to repairing and returning your machine to you within 30 business days.
We have partnered with Bongo International to service our international customers.
Bongo provides a streamlined and cost-effective way for us to ship to our international customers. It's quite easy to use; simply add items to the cart and enter your international address in the Shipping section. If you select a country outside of the US, you will be automatically transferred to Bongo's Secure International Checkout page where you will be provided with international shipping costs that include duties and taxes for your shipment.
Upon completion of your order, Bongo will charge your credit card for the entire purchase. We will ship the goods to Bongo's Global Distribution Facility where Bongo will process the order and transport the goods to your international address. There are no additional fees or registration processes with this service.
NOTE: Please contact us for details about how our warranty policy affects international customers. Typically your purchase is covered for warranty replacement or repair in the US at our facility.

All payment, shipping, or return requests should first be submitted to Bongo at
To place an order with Clive Coffee simply browse to the product page of the product you want to buy, click the "Add to Cart" button. Once the item appears in your cart simply click the "Checkout" button. If you are not signed in you will be prompted to do so (if you have not created an account before click the "Create New Account" button and follow the instructions).
On the billing and Shipping address page fill out the required address information and click Continue. On the "Shipping Method" screen select your shipping method and click Continue. On the Payment Information page select your credit card type, fill in your card number, expiration date, card identification number, and enter any coupon code you may have and click Continue.
On the Review and Submit Order page you can confirm that all the information for your order is correct. If you see any errors click the edit button for that section and you will be able to correct the mistake. Once you have reviewed all your info click the Submit Order button to place your order. Once you have clicked "Place Order" do not click anything else or refresh the page until you see the order confirmation screen.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit and debit cards. To pay by cashier's check, send it to our address under Contact Us along with your desired items. Include your name, address, phone, and email. We'll send you tracking info as soon as the cashier's check clears our bank.
When you place an order on our website, your credit card is authorized for the amount of the order. This reserves the funds until we are able to capture the payment. We normally only capture the funds from an authorization when we have a tracking number generated by our freight company, but we have a different policy for espresso machines. We've had numerous instances of credit cards declining our attempt to capture the funds after the espresso machine has left our facility. We then have to try to intercept the package with the freight company's help until we can resolve the credit card issue.
Because of this, we will charge your card (meaning capture the authorization) as soon as we begin to prepare your espresso machine for shipment. Espresso machines are bench tested before being shipped to you, and sometimes this can add time to the process of preparing your machine for shipment. Some machines can ship the same day you order it, while others may take an extra day or two to be tested and prepared for shipment. We will keep you apprised of the status of your machine as its headed your way, and will send tracking information as soon as it is available. Questions? Contact us at 800.520.2890.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards as our only methods of payment for international orders. All prices listed on Clive Coffee are in US dollars. You will be charged by your credit card company the US dollar amount converted by your country's current exchange rate.
If you have any questions about the checkout process or would like to place your order over the phone please give us a call: 800.520.2890.
"Do I have to send my machine back to Italy for repair?"
Like all finely tuned machines, espresso machines and grinders require maintenance and occasional repairs. For our customers, we take away the hassle of dealing directly with the manufacturer when a problem arises. Repair costs, including parts and labor, are covered under warranty for the first year by the manufacturer. On most machines you can extend that warranty by another year.
In the event that something happens to your machine, we will work with you to determine the best way to get your machine back up to speed. Ken, our espresso repair technician, has over 22 years of experience maintaining and repairing commercial espresso machines such as La Marzocco. He has diagnosed and repaired many complicated issues over the years, so you can feel confident that we can properly service all of the equipment that we sell.
Many repairs can be taken care of with a screwdriver after a brief chat over the phone.
If it turns out to be a more complicated problem, we can arrange to take care of the repair here in Portland or at the importer's service center.
We currently only service machines from Izzo, La Marzocco, La Spaziale, Quick Mill, Rancilio, and Rocket. More brands coming soon.
For service on your machine, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the model information of your machine and a description of the problem. We will email you back shortly with further instructions. Please note that we charge a $25 diagnostic fee for espresso machines purchased from other companies.
