Affiliate Disclosures

Here at Filtered Grounds, we utilize affiliate links to help support our work in providing you with unbiased coffee, gear, and brewing advice. We understand that you rely on us for accurate information, and we take this responsibility very seriously. Therefore, we want to ensure that you understand what affiliate links are as well as our process for choosing our affiliate partners and the products we recommend.

What are Affiliate Links

Affiliate links are unique URLs used to track the traffic sent from our website to a seller’s website. When you click on an affiliate link, a cookie is placed on your browser to track any sales. When a purchase is made, we receive a small commission. However, this commission comes at no extra cost to you (prices are the exact same whether you purchase through an affiliate or non-affiliate link). It’s a way for us to earn revenue while providing you with valuable, free content. Additionally, when you click on an affiliate link to purchase an item, you are buying directly from the seller, not from Filtered Grounds.

How We Handle Your Privacy

Any information collected through our affiliate links is handled with the utmost care. We follow strict guidelines to ensure that your data remains secure and confidential. For more detailed information on how we protect your privacy, please refer to our privacy policy.

How We Choose Our Affiliate Partners

We don’t work with just any affiliate program. Our primary criterion when selecting a program is the quality of the products being offered. We only endorse products that satisfy our stringent standards and help us achieve our mission of simplifying the process of finding the best coffee and gear. Although these affiliate programs do generate revenue for us, our suggestions are not swayed by the potential earnings. We have no incentive to favor one product over another, as our earnings are roughly the same regardless of the product you buy. If a product is featured on our website and promoted with an affiliate link, it means that the product has passed our rigorous selection process.

Our Review and Recommendation Methods

Any products featured on our website have either been rigorously researched, taking into account a multitude of opinions, or have been personally tested by our team. Each product is put through a specific evaluation process that includes but isn’t limited to conducting direct comparisons against competing products, analyzing value compared to pricing, and highlighting potential flaws or quirks. Our goal is always to recommend high-quality and high-value products. If a product is endorsed on Filtered Grounds, it signifies it has met our high standards and is suitable for use. However, this is only our personal opinion and does not constitute professional advice.
