Local pickups can be collected directly from our Roastery at Unit 33, The Boulevard, Leeds Dock, LS10 1PZ. There is parking parallel to The Boulevard on Chadwick St and we are open Thursday and Friday from 8:30am until 5:30pm. Unfortunately we cannot deliver your order to a local customer for you to collect from.

We post all online orders out on a Thursday using the Royal Mail First Class Service so if you have your order on time (by 12pm on a Wednesday), you can expect to receive it on the Friday.
For orders under one kilo in weight, we use the First Class Royal Mail service. Unfortunately our postal boxes won't through your letter box but you can specify a place for it to be left (e.g. in your porch/round the back/with a neighbour) in the notes section when ordering. For orders over one kilo, we use our courier which is a signed for next day service.
We will soon be opening the North Star Coffee Shop and General Store (expected opening date June 2017) which will a variety of our coffees on espresso and filter alongside an all day food menu.
We also supply training, equipment, Storm Tea and Kokoa Collection hot chocolate.

Cuppings are advertised on our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)
Please visit the ‘Academy’ page which details all of the courses we offer.
All of our bags have a one-way valve which allows the coffee to release carbon dioxide but keeps oxygen out the bag which will stale the coffee. Once opened, we recommend roasted beans to be used within three months from the roast date (and within one month to enjoy them at their absolute best).
Once opened, your beans should be airtight (either in our 250g zip-lock bags or a seal-able container) and kept in cool, dry place. We do not recommend refrigerating your coffee as it will take in other aromas very easily and will go through extremes in temperature which will age it quicker.
Please see our page on ‘Ethics’ which details how we work with our producing partners.
At North Star we roast most of our coffees to what you would call a ‘medium’ level with some of single origins roasted light to medium. We do not have any ‘dark’ roast coffee but if you are looking for something with more of a chocolate/nutty flavour, we would recommend going for our Dark Arches Blend.
