Topic: Harvey (52 msgs / 948 lines)
1) From: Mark Tosiello
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

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.

If I hold for Harvey, can I still order my coffee in the cotton bags?

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

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.

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.

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...

15) From: Terry Stockdale
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.

 *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.

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. :-)

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. I just roasted a batch of Java-Djampit and a batch
of Sanani looking forward to blending in the morning.

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.

And shipping via US Postal Service Flat Rate Box (which is the real point).
12 pounds of beans is the max that will fit in the box.
Only option other than beans in plastic bags is beans in cloth 
bags.  Nothing else qualifies for "Customer Pickup - Hold for Harvey."

I've never done Harvey as  there is no way I can limit my purchase to 12
lbs. I ordered six 5 lb bags on Tuesday, near midnight 1/23 and my box
arrived today 1/26. Wow, this despite the arrival of that cute little boy.
I bought:
  Brazil Cachoeira da Grama -Yellow Bourbon -5 lbs
Brazil Fazenda Boa Sorte Natural Bourbon -5 lbs
Peru Norte Especial -5 lbs
Colombia Cauca Organic -La Esperanza -5 lbs
Rwanda Migongo Bourbon -5 lbs
Ethiopia Organic Idido Misty Valley DP -5 lbs   You guys forced me into it.
  This was a tester order.  Next order will 60 lbs of what I like best.  How
am I going to choose?  They all sounded so great.  I love Sweet Maria's!
Can't wait to roast them.
Take care,
