There are almost 200 different contributors to INeedCoffee. If you are trying to reach a particular contributor, follow the contact information at the end of their article. Sometimes there is a link to a social media account. We don’t have contact information for all our contributors.
This page was set up to clarify our Contact Policy on the messages we want and don’t want to receive.
If the message you want to send to INeedCoffee falls into this category, please don’t send it. We are not interested. Your email will be blocked, marked as SPAM, and deleted.

If you have a question related to coffee, consider posting it on a public forum, such as the ones on Home-Barista, CoffeeGeek, or even Reddit. You’ll get feedback from more people and others will learn from your question.
If you have a quick message related to our content, consider Tweeting directly to @INeedCoffee. No need to Direct Message.
- Offer to review coffee equipment or service. (not coffee beans or pods)
- Article corrections (typo, grammar, information) are always appreciated.
- Very specific types of Contributions. (review the Contribute Policy first)
Sorry for the long disclosure, but INeedCoffee would rather focus on creating new content than fielding emails from people that provide no value to our readers.
