Advertising and monetary compensation
Coffee Crossroads is produced, written, and edited by Brian Lokker. In order to support the site, I accept advertising, sponsorships, and other forms of compensation.
The site contains advertisements that may be in the form of graphics, text links, or both. Some advertisements and links are served by ad networks, including Google AdSense and VigLink.
I also manually place advertisements and links on the site. These advertisements and links to products or merchants are usually in the form of “affiliate links.” I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. I am also an affiliate advertiser for other merchants through the following affiliate marketing networks:
If you click on an advertisement or link and purchase a product or service, I may receive a commission from the merchant or the ad network. The commission does not raise the price that you pay for the product or service.
I am not paid or otherwise compensated by any vendor or advertiser to provide an opinion or endorsement of a product or service. The views and opinions expressed on this site are my own. If I favorably review or endorse a product or service, it is because I believe it is worthy of your consideration. Compensation that I may receive from an advertiser or vendor will not influence my opinion.
I am a coffee lover who is fascinated by the world of coffee. I am not a coffee “professional” in the sense that I am employed in the coffee industry. See About Coffee Crossroads.
Reviews, recommendations, or endorsements of products or services on this website are written from that perspective, for a general audience of readers who share my love of coffee. Any claims or representations about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or seller.
Most, but not all, products or services that I choose to write about on this website are available online. They should therefore be available to any reader, either through my affiliate links or from other sources.
Disclaimer of medical expertise. Coffee Crossroads reports on issues of coffee and health, but I do not claim to have any medical expertise. No article on this website is intended as, nor should it be construed as, medical or health advice. For such advice, please consult a physician or other health professional.
If there are any additions or changes to these disclosures, I will post them on this page. This disclosures page was last modified on November 15, 2017.
