Currently we offer Free shipping for standard ground within the contiguous United States. This is limited to the continental United States, and excludes, Alaska, Hawaii, US Territories, and any International Orders. The policy is subject to change, but any modifications to the policy will be noted on the website and updated here. Alaska and Hawaii are excluded from all promotional shipping offers and will incur a shipping charge on all orders. Any order with an address outside of the U.S. (International Orders) will incur shipping charges on all orders. Due to delays we have seen from all Carriers; we encourage you to shop & ship early and incorporate extra time for delivery or upgrade your shipping speed and take advantage of our discounted rates.How long does it take to process and ship my order?
Orders placed by 11am EST, Mon - Thu typically ship the same day or within 24 hours, however in certain circumstances (high volume periods, observed holidays etc.) an order may take up to 48 hours to process. Orders placed Fri - Sun will ship the following Monday, (even if an expedited shipping option is selected). If that Monday is an observed holiday, it will ship on Tuesday. You will receive an email notification once your order ships, that email indicates the carrier has taken possession of your order and it is in route. We have seen examples of some carriers, such as FedEx, not updating their tracking system even though we have turned your order over to them, please be patient with them as they work to adjust to the volume they have. If you have not received your order after 10 days of receiving an email from us saying your order has shipped, let us know and we will replace it.Returns
Due to the perishable nature of food products like coffee, we are unable to accept actual product returns. However, we do have a Satisfaction Guarantee and stand behind our products and want you to be happy with your selection, so don’t worry. If there was an error in your order, or you are dissatisfied, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 10 days of receiving your coffee to notify us of any concerns and we will work to get you back in a good place.
Once you have placed your order, we will send you a confirmation email to track its status. Once your order is shipped, we will send you another email to confirm the expected delivery date as well as a link to track your order (when the delivery method allows it).Missing or Damaged Items
We have seen delays from all carriers recently, so it is possible that an order may arrive later than expected. If your order has not arrived within 10 days of being shipped, please reach out to us and we will process a replacement order for you.
If an item arrives damaged, please let us know within 10 days of receiving your order. Including a photo of the damage in your communication is helpful to us so we can work with our shipper/packer to prevent future issues. We will process a replacement order for you.Order Updates or Changes
Requests for changes to an order already placed are generally not possible; however, please reach out to us and we will make every effort to assist. Once an order status moves to “shipping” we are unable to make any changes.
