FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. The readers need to know if the content publisher is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
Any/all of the links on Coffeeaware.com are affiliate links for which we receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on Coffeeaware.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Coffeeaware).
Amazon pays Coffeeaware a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.
Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. Clicking an affiliate link and clicking a non-affiliate link does not change the price or anything else for the visitor.
Amazon Associates Program

What About Sponsored Content?
We do not write sponsored posts. We want to provide authentic, unbiased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on Coffeeaware, we will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post. The bottom line is that we only recommend products we use or those we would recommend to our families and friends.
