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.
