Topic: New discounted shipping special, July 7-31 (10 msgs / 194 lines)
1) From: Sweet Maria's Coffee
Hi all - I wanted to give the Homeroast list a "heads up" on an 
experiment Maria and I have talked about a lot. Basically, we want to 
simplify our shipping and also give some incentive to people who are 
getting hit with higher shipping costs. So starting July 7 at 9am 
(Monday after the holiday weekend) and running until July 31, we are 
going to try out this idea:
To anywhere in the contiguous 48 states (no AK, HI or AE/AP), Sweet 
Maria's Flat Rate shipping will be:
0-20 Lbs. = $7.99
21-40 Lbs. = $13.99
41-60 Lbs. = $20.99
Orders can be for coffee and/or merchandise. Shipping method will be 
our discretion - UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail - so transit times 
will be between the UPS Ground transit time (up to 6 days to northern 
New England) and USPS Priority Mail (sometimes  mysteriously fast, 
sometimes mysteriously slow). Can not be combined with other 
discounts or offers.  We might adopt this permanently, but for now 
it's just July 7-31. We may need to tweak the details as we go - 
we'll see how complicated it gets and how folks like it.
I have some new lots arriving, including that great Ethiopia 
dry-process Koratie and 2 more Costa Ricas, but we can't pick them up 
until Monday, so look for them on Tuesday or so. Maria and Ben and I 
are headed to San Diego tomorrow. Sweet Maria's is closed on Friday. 
Have a great 4th!
Tom

2) From: Edward Bourgeois
I generally try to stock up and avoid having to order during July and
August just too hot and humid for such a long haul to Ma. UPS is at
least 6 days in hot trucks. I think all of my USPS priority orders
from SM have made it in 3 days. Great prices! I hope it works out.
Happy 4th.

yeah, because coffee doesn't come from hot countries like Africa or Yemen or
Brazil or Columbia or Sumtra?
Seriously, 6 days in a UPS truck cannot even compare to the shipping
container they were in prior to hitting CA.

perfect timing, was just pondering my next order...down to my last 6 or 8
pounds.
So much for Hold For Harvey...guess he went away already anyway.
Thanks for this Tom.

7) From: Ken B
I assume the normal shipping options will also still be in effect?  Some 
of us have reasons for picking UPS over USPS, like actually having it 
delivered to your door so you do not need to drive to the post office 
and stand in line to get it. ;-)  For some reason USPS here will deliver 
about 1 of every 20 packages.  The rest wait at the post office until I 
can get around to going and getting them, usually on the weekend. It's 
worth three bucks to me not to have to go stand in line.
Best Regards,
Ken B

Guess we in Hawaii will just have to consider the shipping charge as
Paradise Tax.

That's great Tom. I'm lucky, I'm a local and drive past the shop( on the
freeway) every day.
Have a great time in Diego and a Happy Fourth of July.
