Thank you

Through supply chain issues, continuing inflation and a shortage of everything, the pandemic has not been easy for anyone.

Trading in this environment has been tricky to navigate.

Happy Donkey is now more efficient and better run than at anytime since the start way back in 2004.

Thanks to everyone who has continued to show support throughout the last 2 years and since 2004 ! Yes Happy Donkey18 years old this year !

All coffee now back in stock and ready to go!

Prices rises are happening.

With the increases in recent times of transportation costs, as well as supply outstripping demand for packaging, price increases all across the coffee industry are common place.

Whilst Happy Donkey has held off from any increases thus far, it is no longer possible to absorb increased costs.

Therefore price rises are just around the corner, as this has become unavoidable now.

Coffee price rises will begin in September 2021. Some hardware prices have already increased a little and other items will follow in due course.

If there is something on the site you have your eye on, the advice is buy it now as re-stocks may be more expensive in the future.

As we are all aware food and energy prices are all around us which always follows when governments print money to keep the economy rolling along.

Happy Donkey coffee prices have not risen since 2014, the last time there was a big economical shake up.

There may be more to come next year depending on the outcome of the frost in Brazil, however it is thought by many that the difference will be marginal and the worst of that scenario has already been absorbed in the market.

Thank you for reading and for all the support from customers past and present. It is never forgotten.
