1) From: Aaron
Wow, I think that is a record.
I put in an order late thursday night, .. I mean really late, like 
almost midnight.
It was processed and shipped early friday morning... and was on my 
doorstep around noon today monday.
3 days one of them a sunday to go from california to florida.... impressive.

It is an accident and someone will be properly chastised.  Also a letter of reprimand to the personal file.  
This is a clear violation of USPS Mail Manual.  You paid for 3 days of storage, not counting Sunday and 
did not receive the storage you paid for.

I've found it's as fast if not faster than brown. A little rougher though-thinking insurance might be good on my next order

Insurance, umm they are coffee beans... they'd have to run em over with 
a truck to really hurt them.  If you want to spend the extra bucks go 
for it but I don't think it will really help besides for possibly loss.
I think the box already comes with 100 insurance as part of the 
package... no pun intended... so getting more would be kind of a waste.

The basic UPS includes the $100.00 of "insurance" but the USPS Priority does not, you have to purchase 
every nickle of "insurance".  International is different.

The time I had damage there was damage in the corner of the box and one of the bags came open. If the beans fall out you're not getting them back w/USPS/no ins. or something else gets in.  who knows.  You also buy insurance w/UPS, it's just that they MAKE you buy it-its built into the price, not free.

Just think- if you insure the package, it makes the ex baggage-mashers
think they're destroying a valuable parcel. It's an art form.

What's the trick? It's been taking a full 7 days to get to KY from SM's, 
who process it the day I order it, or if I order late, early the next day.
Like another poster said, USPS instead of brown, or are you paying for 
3-day, or what?

Howdy, Jeff - a fellow KY roaster! I have found ups takes a week to 
KY, whereas the priority flat rate coffee box gets here in three 
days. Since ups is always just as much as the flat rate 12# box, I 
have been going with the priority mail and it gets here much faster.

I believe that a handler in Albaquirky and Oklahoma city use the SM beans as
their pillows on the night shift, because I always have about a 10-12 hr.
layover at both these locations before they reach Vinita, Ok for
distribution in the North-Eastern Oklahoma region. I look at the schedule
and note that they usually get away from Oakland pretty quick and once they
hit Vinita they are less than 4 hours away from our loading docks here where
I work. But I am convinced that if they would locate those two folks in the
above mentioned layovers....no wait, ...I forgot about the storage fee and
time requirement....
At least 6 days usually 7 to get here. SO I guess there has to be a
time-rest corolation for Brown.
