FAQ - Shipping
Q: What day will my package ship?
A: We ship online orders Monday through Friday. If a major U.S. holiday falls on one of those days you can expect your coffee to go out the next available shipping day. The cut off time for getting your order in to ship the FOLLOWING day is 12pm. Examples: if you get your order in before 12pm on Monday, your package will ship on Tuesday; if you get your order in after 12pm on Thursday, your order will not ship until the following Monday. Note: Coffee Subscriptions only ship on Tuesday or Friday of each week.
Q: What kind of shipping should I choose for my order?
A: This depends on where you are and how fast you need your coffee. USPS Priority mail takes about 2-3 days to get anywhere in the U.S. however, their delivery times are not guaranteed and they do not deliver on Sunday. If choosing a FedEx option like express or 2 day shipping, keep in mind that these are business days and the weekends don’t count. For example, if you choose FedEx 2 day shipping and your package goes out Friday, your package will not arrive until the following Tuesday. Please see the color coded map below for FedEx Ground time in transit.
Q: I placed an order over a week ago, but haven’t received my package yet. Where is it?
A: First, check your tracking number that gets emailed to you upon shipping! If you chose to ship USPS and the tracking states that the package has been delivered, call your local post office. They can tell you what happened, often they have it there waiting to be claimed. If nobody claims the package, it sits at the warehouse, and we do not hear about it until it ships back to us 30 days later. If you chose to ship FedEx, check your tracking number and read the progress of the transit time. When there are severe weather warnings, shipping is often delayed. If this is the case, FedEx does not reimburse shipping costs, therefore, heart doesn’t reimburse for severe weather delays. If you live on the east coast and ship FedEx Ground, keep in mind that your package will take 5-6 business days to reach you… this means 7-8 days including the weekend. It is very important that you are proactive with missing or delayed packages. Once the package has left the facility, it is out of our hands. Please make sure your address is correct, there aren’t any weather delays, and that you select the fastest shipping option that works best for you!
Q: Do you offer free shipping?
A: We offer free shipping on orders of $65 or more within the United States.
Q: Where in the world do you ship?
A: We can ship coffee anywhere, but keep in mind that it is rather expensive to ship internationally. The recipient is responsible for paying all brokerage, duties, and taxes associated with international shipping.
Q: Is my package insured?
A: All packages are insured within the United States through USPS and FedEx. If your coffee is damaged upon arrival, we can ship you a new bag, no problem. Packages are only insured if they never show up, or the contents are damaged. Unfortunately it does not cover perishable items like coffee, and as long as it shows up (even if it takes a month) we cannot reimburse you.
Q: What is your return Policy?
A: For merchandise, apparel, and/or brew equipment purchases:
If merchandise, apparel, and/or brew equipment is broken or defective upon arrival, you may return or exchange the product within 30 days from purchase. If you want to make a return on merchandise, apparel, and/or brew equipment that is not broken or defective, the product must be unused, in its' original packaging and within 30 days from purchase. If we receive the product and it appears to be used you will not be refunded. Heart does not cover the return shipping cost for the product. For international packages, we are willing to replace merchandise damaged in transit. However, we would need the damaged goods returned and unfortunately we can not cover the shipping costs. Please contact coffee@heartroasters and a heart representative will get back to you with further information.
