Yes – our couriers will send you your tracking details. Follow their prompts to view the tracking information online.
Yes, you can and some is even compostable! The cardboard box is already made from recycled card which can either be recycled again or composted. The paper and paper tape can also be recycled. Check with your local council to find out how best to recycle products in your area.
We also use a very special loose fill that protects in the same way as polystyrene chips (and looks similar), but that’s where the similarities end! Environmentally, these products are oceans apart- our loose fill is made from corn starch and is 100% compostable (EN13432). Just put it in your home compost, or if you put it in the sink and run water over it, it will dissolve and run down the sink!
We usually need at least 48 hours or 2 working days (whichever is the longer) to make a cancelation or changes to your order.
Once the order is picked up by our couriers and making its way to you, unfortunately we won’t be able to cancel or make any changes. However, if you have placed an order for a later date, please email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you to arrange a change or cancellation.
Whoops! We’re so sorry! Please email our team on email@example.com and we will get that sorted for you.

Hampers and Gifts
At check out, you have the opportunity to write a gift message.
We will print this onto a card, and place it at the top of the main inbox, so that the recipient sees it as soon as they open their parcel.
Gift hampers are sent packaged inside an outer box with our special compostable packaging chips to keep the parcel safe en route.
At Noble House Prepared, we take great pride in curating exquisite hampers filled with only the finest, premium products.
Occasionally, due to stock availability, we may need to make substitutions, but rest assured, we will always replace any item with one of equal or greater quality. We understand that every gift is important, and our commitment to providing the best never wavers. Trust us to ensure that your recipient experiences the joy and delight that comes with a Noble House Prepared hamper.
For the majority of our wine deliveries we use specially made packaging manufactured from recycled materials to keep your bottles from breaking on their journey to you. The packaging is recyclable, biodegradable and compostable so you’re welcome to add it to the compost!
By law we can only sell alcohol to customers over the age of 18.
We use an inbuilt web app to check your age at checkout. If for any reason the app can’t verify your age, we may need another method (e.g. seeing your ID) to confirm your age, in which case we will contact you. If there is a delay in confirming your age, this may result in a slight delay in your order reaching you, for which we apologise, but we are legally obliged to ensure that all alcohol is only sold to customers over the age of 18, for the protection of minors. We thank you for your understanding.
If you have any problems trying to purchase alcohol online, please do contact our team on email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help.
All the packaging can be recycled (subject to your local recycling facilities), and in addition all our coffee capsules are 100% compostable- so you can dispose of them in any way you like, even in your compost heap at home!
Our 100% compostable coffee capsules work in machines designed for the original 'Nespresso' style pod/capsule. They will not fit in machines designed for other shapes of pod or capsule.
Whether in your general waste, home compost heap, or buried in the ground, they will break down- so you can dispose of them as you please, with a clear conscience.
Firstly, you don’t have to return them anywhere to be recycled, as you do with other brands' aluminium capsules. So you save on time, and of course on the transportation emissions.
Secondly, the whole of our capsule is compostable. With the aluminium capsule, some of the elements aren’t recyclable (the coffee and the glue), so there is a costly process of cleaning to enable it to be recycled.
Thirdly, our capsules are made from a specially developed plant-based material, which uses significantly less energy and resources to make than an aluminium capsule.
Our capsules are made from a specially developed, oxygen-tight biopolymer, that guarantees a shelf life of at least 12 months. So using capsules can mean a lot less wastage from ground coffee or beans going stale if not consumed within two weeks of opening.
However, for those who love to brew their coffee from the bean, or from ground coffee, we have a fabulous range of Noble House Coffee Blends in bean and ground format that we are sure you will enjoy!
We choose only the best quality coffee from ethically operated cooperatives and we are then donating 10% of the green bean price per tonne (or 5% on our certified products), going directly towards education and social projects in the specific coffee growing communites.
Many of our coffees are also certified Fairtrade, and we always ensure that every cup of coffee you drink benefits the communities where the beans have come from. In addition, all our whole bean and ground coffees also support the Msia School Project in Tanzania.
