I am on the fence as far as ordering a Behmor. I have a CafeRosto that does a good job for me, but I would like to be able to use it indoors and have a more consistent roast. Has anyone form the Seattle area ordered one? What was the shipping time. I don't want to order one and not be home when it arrives. Thanks, Ken. Sigh; one more hobby growing into a necessity :-)
I live in the Portland area and it took three days from when I ordered mine until it arrived. Once it was actually shipped it only took two day which is what SM's web page indicated it should take and I believe to Seattle is the same. On the SM site they have a link on how long it should take once it is shipped. Hope this helps. dave On Nov 18, 2007, at 10:23 PM, Ken Schillinger wrote: <Snip>
I ordered one and am across the country, it claimed 7 days to ship. This wednesday should be the holy grail day for me, but with the weekend inbetween and thanksgiving coming up id not be suprised if it took a bit longer. Then again, I went the cheap route on shipping too. Aaron
Thanks for the feedback on shipping time. If I decide to order, I'll wait till I get back home after the holiday. Ken.
Hi Ken, also remember that UPS only delivers Monday-Friday, so if your order ships on a Thursday (perhaps even Wed.) two more days get added to the estimated delivery time. For beans, I generally use the USPS flat rate option - less expensive, faster and so far, more reliable than UPS, especially around the holidays. However, like Aaron, I went the cheaper route with the Behmor and am also hoping to get mine delivered this Wed. Take care, Linda
Hi Ken, I'm in Seattle and can verify the two days. Ordered tuesday, arrived thursday. My caffe rosto wasn't getting it done for me (have old wiring in house) so I "had" to get a behmor :) Doug On Nov 18, 2007 10:23 PM, Ken Schillinger wrote: <Snip>

Good idea! I just ordered and noted that it shouldn't ship before the 23rd. Thanks for the suggestion. Ken.
