As many of you know, our shipping is a flat rate based on your location. Depending on which part of the contiguous 48 states you're in (see map) your shipping charge will be $7.50, $8.50, $9.50, or $10.50. This is per order*, so your shipping cost is the same whether you buy one pound or one hundred pounds.
We choose the best way to get you your coffee based on size of your order and cost, so your order may ship USPS Priority Mail or UPS. In general, smaller orders closer to us go USPS and larger orders farther away from Maine are more likely to be shipped UPS.
It really helps us out if you ensure we have an address (or addresses) which are good for both UPS as well as USPS Priority Mail. If you have a preference for one or the other we will try to accommodate your requests (within reason), but please make sure to put your requests in the comments/add a gift message area on your order every time. (This new system makes it impossible for us to make comments/notes "sticky" on your account for future orders).
Thanks for understanding.
*for shipping purposes, one shipping address=one order. If you want your order split to multiple recipients at multiple shipping addresses there will be a shipping charge for each address.... it's only fair.
