Wow.... I'm glad all that is over and clarified.  Anyone would agree that our intent must always be to obey the law.  Amen.
Now back to the shipping roasted coffee.  Being a newbie and not having a whole lot of experience with this (1year several months worth) I have shipped roasted coffee twice to a friend and a family member.  The first time I simply used one of the foil zip-lock bags with the degassing valve and shipped it Priority mail along with some other items.  It arrived OK in a couple of days.  This weekend I roasted a couple of types of coffee for my cousin in FLA, (I live in MA).  I roasted Sunday afternoon, let it rest in it's brown paper coffee bag (plastic lined) and then vacuum packed them using a Reynolds vac seal bag you can get at any wally mart on Monday night.  The vacuum seal held well overnight and it was mailed Tuesday AM priority mail (about $10 I think).  I haven't heard from him and if it has arrived yet but when I do I'll ask him about the vacuum and if it held.  If it did it may be a good way to ship and help keep the coffee as fresh as possible. 
 Bye the way when I buy 5 - 20 lbs batches of Green Coffee (from Sweet Maria's of course)  I vacuum pack them in 5 lb packages.  It's real cheap, takes only a min or two and gives me at the very least a false sense of security that my beans are happy happy happy.
