Shipping & Returns

Pick Ups

You can place an order for pick up at our Roastery. It is located at 2206 Winter Street, Superior, Wisconsin 54880-1400. Because we aim to get coffee to you as quickly as possible after it leaves the roaster, it is best to order and then contact us to be sure that your order is roasted and ready for pick up.


You can get a shipping cost estimate before you order by 1. adding the item(s) to your shopping cart, 2. entering your country, state/province and zip code and 3. clicking on "update" on the lower right of that screen. We ship by UPS and USPS for packages. We use a number of companies for heavier freight shipments.

If your order is 200 lbs or more and the average package weighs 15 lbs or more, UPS has a program called Hundred Weight which is more competitive than their standard rates. Please contact us for details.

If you are interested in pallet quantities, we can arrange very competitive rates. For example, a large shipment to the Minneapolis metro area may cost less than three cents per pound. A large shipment to Chicago may cost less than six cents per pound. Please contact us for details.

If you want a freight quote on a piece of heavy equipment that cannot be shipped by UPS ground, please contact us with the item(s) that you are considering ordering, your city, state, zip code and country, whether or not the shipment is going to a commercial address and whether or not you have a loading dock. If possible, we will try to combine items on a pallet to get the items you want to you in the most economical way.

Whenever possible, we are willing to ship to APO/FPO addresses for overseas military mail.

When shipping to Canada, the brokerage fees are significantly less with the USPS compared to UPS. You can get a total cost estimate from the website called For freight shipments of items heavier than 70 pounds and/or on pallets to Canada, you will need a Canadian broker. We know of these two: A&A (800) 663-4270 and GHY (George h young) (204) 947-6700. We are told it takes about five minutes to set up the Canadian broker.

We ship to residential or commercial addresses in any country as long as the United States allows shipments to that country.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
