Hi folks, So, Tom, are you secretly bunding Harvey into a CRUIZE MISSLE or something? I mean, I'm beginning to belive that the retired SR-71s are being used to deliver flat rate Harvey boxes. My last shipment was sent on the 6th, and got here to TC Michigan on the 9th!!! UPS TAKES AT LEAST 8 DAYS!!!! Thank you SO much for offering this service.....it's immeasureably better than UPS for me....YMMV. Mark -- No virus found in this outgoing message. Checked by AVG Anti-Virus.

Add my Kudos to Harvey as well. I placed an order late Wednesday (5/4), the order was shipped on 5/6, and it arrived in Connecticut on 5/9. This is a fantastic option for those of us ordering beans and bags. I hope Tom continues to offer this shipping option.

Yes, I have received "Harvey" orders in cotton bags. Bill Thomas Pfau wrote: <Snip>
I believe it is required.
All my Harvey orders had beans in plastic bags. jim gundlach On Nov 17, 2005, at 9:39 AM, tom ulmer wrote: <Snip>
I would recommend the cotton bags then based upon my experience ordering 5lb. bags. The zip lock seal on the plastic bags is not very hearty and can come apart in shipping. If you're ordering beans to blend together I guess it wouldn't be a concern since the boxes are taped to seal.
Could someone explain to me what is "Harvey"! Sorry it is has already been addressed! Thanks - Barb <Snip>
Harvey is shipping up to 12 pounds of greens by the U. S. Postal service flat rate box. I almost always get a Harvey box here in Alabama in two days. Much quicker and for less money than UPS. Since Harvey I now only place orders for 12 pounds at a time. jim gundlach On Nov 17, 2005, at 10:44 AM, Barbara Leazier wrote: <Snip>
Unfortunately, USPS makes no guarantees about shipping speed via Priority Mail. The last Harvey order I placed took a couple of days longer than Brown Ground to get to southern Michigan but it was cheaper. Another Mike

Harvey is/was a mailman. A.K.A. USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Service / Box which will deliver up to 12 pounds of SM green beans for your listening and dancing pleasure...
Harvey is the postman. Specifically, "Hold for Harvey" shipments of green coffee, only, shipped in USPS Flat Rate boxes. The box can hold up to 12 pounds. You can get the coffee in cloth bags (at the usual charge) instead of ziploc bags, if you prefer, but nothing else in the flat rate boxes.

Who is harvey and what is he doing differently? *From my list archive (Gmail is sooo handy ;-) Gary;* Okay folks, this whole USPS Flat Rate Box has ruined my life. I spent much of last week and the weekend too trying to figure out a way we can offer it. It doesn't work. We simply can't offer what needs to be a volume-based shipping calculation alongside a weight-based calculation at this time. So here is our fix ... a temporary "band-aid" approach. First, I am only telling the list about this right now. It's an "insider deal" at this point. If it works I will add an page with the explaination and "terms and conditions" listed below. Unfortunately, if it doesn't work out for us, we are going to have to pull it. The main way this is going to fail is if 1. customers choose it when they are not eligible, that is, when they are buying something other than green coffee, and more than 12 Lbs. and 2. when in generates excessive emails for Maria and Derek and me, with people asking for exceptions, additions, special circumstances. Okay, here's the low-tech fix: Buy up to 12 lbs of green coffee ... it can be 5 Lbs, it can be 8, it can be 10, whatever, but NEVER more than 12 Lbs. It cannot be any other product except our cloth logo bags matching the amounts of coffee purchased. When you check out, chose the purposefully cryptic shipping option :"Customer Pick Up - Hold for Harvey ($8.50)" We had to make the option unattractive to those who don't know what it is, who haven't read this email. Why Harvey? Well, here's our USPS guy! Why $8.50? We have to add .80 for our USPS pickup fees and packing supplies. Oh, duh ... this is only good for the U.S. and will work for Alaska, Hawaii, PR, and FPO/APO too. Remember, everything bad about the USPS still applies here- spotty tracking, no insurance currently offered, occasional lost packages, 2-3 days is NOT a guarantee AT ALL - I get some Priority Mails in 2 days, some in 5 ... I have had ones that took 2 weeks!!! Nomatter what you think about UPS, it's trackable, always insured up to $100, and about 99% on time according to their time in transit map. If I lived a few states away and UPS was a couple bucks more, I would choose UPS personally! SO this is out beta run of this, and I really hope it works. In a few months I hope there will be a software upgrade for our system that will implement it in a better way. Anyone who understands the rules can try this out. I really hope this saves some money, and doesn't create headaches for you all or for us.

tom ulmer wrote: <Snip> That may not apply anymore if my last order is something new Tom is doing. My last order had zip lock bags that were sealed at the top. I had to use scissors to cut it open. If that is now the norm for all shipments, you shouldn't have to worry about zip lock bags coming open in transit. I'll defer to Tom as to whether my bags just happened to be a sample of those or whether he is now switching to sealed zip lock bags for all coffee shipments. :-) -- Rick Copple Marble Falls, TX
I got my holiday package today. I was horrified when I picked up the box and heard the dreaded USPS blend sound. Thank goodness only the one bag split open.

Hehe. USPS blend. Made me smile after I'd just found that 1) my car didn't start until I stuck the battery in a sink of hot water for 30mins and 2) I haven't gotten my daycare reimbursement, putting a crimp on my xmas shopping. Thanks for that.
holding for harvey is purchasing 12lbs of beans at once, correct?

The maximum is 12 pounds. You can order less. But you can order only green beans and cloth bags, nothing else. Brian On 8/15/06, Scjgb3 wrote: <Snip>

Harvey does it again! I ordered 12 pounds of greens Tuesday, they were shipped Wednesday, and Harvey dropped them off today, about as far as you can get from Oakland and still be dry, here in Columbia, SC. Brian
