2022 Tax Free (Coffee) Holiday in Tennessee!

Tennessee has a tax free holiday every year to help people with their back-to-school shopping. Typically, tax exempt items have been limited to common student needs, like clothing and computers. However, the list has now expanded to include our favorite back-to-school essential... 



Here's the nitty gritty details.

From August 1 - August 31all coffees will be tax exempt.
From July 29 - July 31all clothing and coffee tasting journals will be tax exempt.

  • The tax is automatically removed from your purchase total at checkout. 
  • The exemption is on all qualifying purchases made within the holiday dates whether you make 1 purchase or 28.
  • If you purchase a coffee subscription*, your first payment will be tax exempt. If you have additional payments within the tax exempt period (for instance, a weekly subscription), these payments will also be tax free. All future payments will be taxed as usual.
  • All prepaid coffee subscription purchases will be tax free.
  • The exemption is only for customers purchasing from Tennessee for delivery to a Tennessee address. 


With a Tennessee state sales tax that's almost 10%, a tax free holiday can add up to significant savings. So grab that super soft hoodie you've had your eye on and enjoy a cup of decaf around your summer bonfire, with absolutely zero buyer's remorse.
