Our shipments are sometimes subject to customs inspection, which may delay the arrival of your order, and for which we have no control over. Please contact us if you have not received your coffee within 30 days. If after 30 days your order has been determined to be lost, abandoned or stolen, we will give you a full refund less any previously paid shipping and handling charges. We will not make a shipment twice to the same address where problems have occurred unless the shippee pays additionally for secure delivery service.

Order Processing, Order Receipt: Once you submit your order, and it is successfully processed on our secure server, your browser will display an order summary entitled "Order Receipt." Please print this page for your records. Shortly thereafter, you will receive an email confirmation as well, but this email could be delayed owing to Internet server traffic. You will not receive a follow up e-mail after your purchase has been shipped because most orders arrive within a relatively short time period.

Taxes: Coffee is not subject to sales/consumption tax in the US. Sales/consumption tax on shipments outside the US will be collected by the carrier, dependent upon the local tax authority regulations, and is the responsibility of the buyer. If coffee is taxed in your part of the world (Europe for example), the carrier will collect this tax from you the buyer.
