Thank you for your interest in Borealis Coffee. We are happy to offer a mail order coffee service, but it does not come without some difficulties. We have done the research to maximize shipping efficiency and have determined that it is generally cheapest to send coffee via USPS Regional Rate or Flat Rate boxes. Boxes come in set sizes and you can fill them with as much as you want and the cost remains the same based on ZONES ("if it fits, it ships"). That being said: shipping is the same for 1 pound as it is for 3 pounds. Fill that box up!
Coffee will ship in the following ways:
Regional Rate Boxes
Regional rate boxes have a flat rate based on US Post Office's zones. When you go to select a shipping rate, the website should default to the best options for you. Regional Rate and Flat Rate boxes are shipped Priority Mail and come with a tracking number.
Because we are located in RI the zone breakdown is as follows:
ZONE 1: RI, Eastern MA
ZONE 2: Western MA, CT, NH, Southern VT, Southern ME, Eastern NY State
ZONE 3: NJ, NYC, DE, Eastern PA, Northern VT, Northern ME
ZONE 4: Western NY state, Western PA, MD, WV, Eastern OH, Most of VA, Eastern NC
ZONE 5: North AL, Most of GA, IN, IL, KY, Western OH, MI, SC, Eastern TN, Most of WI, NE Florida.
ZONE 6: Southern AL, AR, FL, Southwest GA, Southern IL, IA, KS, LA, MN, MS, MO, Eastern NE, Eastern ND, Eastern SD, Western TN
ZONE 7: Eastern CO, Western NE, Most of OK, Western SD, Western ND, Most of TX, Eastern WY.
ZONE 8: AK, AZ, CA, Western CO, HI, ID, MT, NV, NM, OR, and WA. Also PR, USVI, outlying protectorates, etc.
Shipping to Canada is painfully expensive. We are continuing to look for a more reasonable shipping option for our friends in the north, but at this time, it is prohibitively expensive to send more than 2 pounds at a time, and even that is $15.
These prices are based on USPS rates as of August 4, 2014. They are subject to change without notice.
