Topic: from Sweet Maria's to Northport, AL in 3 days (10 msgs / 320 lines)
1) From: Steven Dover
...from Sweet Maria's to Northport, AL in 3 days! Shipped Monday - arrived
Thursday.
Well my hat's off to the "hold for harvey" shipping. There's just no way to
beat "Harvey" for quickness and/or price. The box was slightly torn and one
bag of beans was open but it takes UPS 6 days to do what Harvey does in 3.
I'm impressed.

As am I. The trip to my door in SE Florida is consistently 2 days at a =
cost
of about .3¢ per mile.

4) From: Bill Morgan
Yep.  Unbelievable service from the Post Office and from Sweet Maria's!
I placed my order Tuesday afternoon.
SM shipped it on Wednesday.
It arrived in Austin on Friday.  The box was a little beat-up, but no beans
leaked.
All this in mid-Christmas rush!
Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved.

Service to Bama is fastest using Harvey.  I grew up in Shelby County and
lived in Vestavia for ten years before moving to Charlotte. Oh - and seven
months in Helena.  When I orderd using Harvey it was always three days until
the box was on the doorstep and the same holds true in NC.

Gregg,
     I assume you are here in Alabama for holidays.  I'm headed up to  
B'ham Tuesday morning and I thought I would try a coffee place I've  
heard good things about, Prime Time Roasters, just off Valleydale Rd  
between 65 and 31.  Was it there before you left?  If so, have you  
tried it?
     I put in a Harvey order late Thursday, shipped on Friday, I hope  
to see it tomorrow so I can make my next roast the Java Government  
Estate Djampit and have it rested for three days when the current  
Nicaragua Matagalpa-Pacamara Peaberry is gone.  I've been trying too  
many bright coffees lately and I'm craving something with a lot of  
body right now.

Pean Jim,
  My family attended Valleydale Church which is in the vacinity but I don't
believe Prime Time roasters was there before we left for Charlotte.  I
believe someone recomended that I stop by for some reason other than the
coffee.  I'll definately find it today or tomorrow.  My mom is having a
heart cath tomorrow morning- so I'll need some drinkable coffee as I drive
to the hospital.
In the past I've stopped at a coffee house at the corner of Valleydale and
Caldwell Mill. I don't recall the name but they brew(ed) Intelligentsia
beans.
I brought a 1/2 lb of Congo Kivu Peaberry along with a little Yirg but can't
wait to get back home and roast some Honduras Pacamara.   Ninety percent of
my stash is Central and South American.  My wife has gently suggested that
she likes the Java Government Estate Djampit so I'll be ordering something
for her today.

Gregg,
     I wish your mother well in the surgery tomorrow.
     I have to be at the airport by 9:00 or so, I'll hang around and  
see that the kid gets off OK at about 10:00, then either head down to  
Prime Time Roasters and perhaps meet a reporter.
     When I got home, checked the mail and 12 pounds delivered by  
Harvey.  Shipped last Friday and arrived in La Place Alabama on  
Monday.  No major dings to the box and no spilled beans.  I will  
roast later tonight.

With very few exceptions I can almost always guess exactly when I'm going to
get a Priority mail shipment.  It's fast + the USPS works on Saturdays!
