The holidays are rapidly approaching and we have a few shipping updates to pass on to you so you can enjoy great coffee during the festive season. Thanksgiving is a time to feast, enjoy the gift of family, and give thanks for all that we are grateful for. We are thankful for the time and effort poured into each and every harvest and the farmers who dedicate their lives to producing great coffee year after year. We are thankful for the baristas, roasters, staff, and the families who make what we do possible! Most of all, we are thankful for you, our customers and friends who have followed and supported us through the years.
Unfortunately, Thursday holidays are not ideal for shipping, and if you want to share great coffee with your family without expediting your order, you may want to check our transit times to ensure its arrival before the holiday.
If you are located in a four day transit zone, your coffee will need to ship on Friday, Nov. 20th, in order to arrive before Thanksgiving. If you select our Flat Rate, we will choose the best option for you to get it there on time. FedEx Express also offers extremely competitive rates, and if you order a little late choosing the 2-Day or Overnight option will not cost you an arm and a leg!
PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. will be closed on Thursday and Friday in observance of Thanksgiving. Orders placed after 8 AM on Wednesday the 25th will roast and ship on Monday, Nov. 30th.
If you would like to order any of our special coffee offerings for Thanksgiving, we will be having a special holiday roast on Monday, Nov. 23rd:, Estate Series – Finca Kilimanjaro, Auromar Geisha Natural Peaberry, PT’s Reserve Geisha Blend.

Boquete, Panama – December 10, 2012 I’ve been traveling to Panama for nearly a decade now. It’s one of my favorite trips each year. The producers here are very educated, up to date the latest farming and processing techniques, agronomy and the science of coffee. So I took it as one of my many goals… Continue Reading
I got one of “those” emails a few weeks back that seemed a little strange at first . It was a “last chance offer” to respond to an opportunity from Google. Apparently a representative of Google had tried unsuccessfully the prior week to reach me via email only I didn’t respond. I hate it when… Continue Reading
Republished with permission by Mike Perry, Klatch Roasting One of the great things about the coffee industry is the friendships and relationships. Even though we all compete and strive for the perfect roast or espresso, we still work together and help each other out. Often we travel together and even buy lots of coffee together.… Continue Reading
El Salvador Cup of Excellence supporters – Nine years ago when El Salvador joined the Cup of Excellence family, many nay-sayers said that this country could not identify small farms and did not produce the kind of unique quality that was worthy of a Cup of Excellence award. El Salvador has always had great processing… Continue Reading

I just… Continue Reading
I was enjoying a rare day off at origin today – in Panama City this time – when all of the sudden I began to get these nagging feelings of guilt about not updating our PT’s blog more often. I hate it when that happens! A self imposed guilt trip ruining a perfectly good day… Continue Reading
Finca El Socorro, Guatemala In 2010 we introduced you to a Guatemalan offering that we at PT’s were thrilled to launch as our newest Direct Trade Relationship coffee. Finca El Socorro Maracaturra made it’s way into our roasting plant mid September and was gone before we knew it. As sad as we were to see… Continue Reading
What an exciting visit to Finca Mercedes last week, even if it was a little different than first anticipated. Normally we are eager just to see the quality of coffee this farm continues to produce. This year we got a little added excitement. One member of our traveling party awoke early to the sound of… Continue Reading
