As most of you know, we roast to order, and ship the same day using only USPS Priority Mail. Freshness is paramount, and USPS provides the best combination of speed and lower cost. We don't pad shipping prices, it's the actual cost, with one exception I'll lay out below:
Single lbs ship in a variable rate box, which ranges from $5.80 locally in CA, to $11.25 to the East Coast. However, 2-5lbs ship in a medium flat rate box; this costs $12.85, but I'm still charging only $11.35, the rate from 2 years ago. That's pretty economical for 2 Day delivery! Orders from 6-9lbs go in a large flat rate box for $17.45; my site refuses to figure these correctly, but if you place the order I will refund any overages immediately.
I hope that simplifies things for you all!
