We understand that the shipping costs are high when it comes to coffee. We do not up-charge for shipping, our website calculates the shipping cost based on UPS Ground rates to both business and residential addresses. But, it's all based on weight, and coffee is heavy. As a small company, it's not easy for us to simply absorb the shipping costs. We do appreciate you choosing our product regardless of that, so we have worked to develop a few options for you to choose from. When you are in the check-out process, please look at the Shipping Options drop down box for these choices. Details on our shipping policies.
