Well, it finally caught up to us. Being a small business, I thought I could be smart about planning and avoid all the craziness that is going on. Nope … I planned ahead, but the distribution and shipping issues were not to be avoided unfortunately. Our 12 oz. packaging sat on a boat off of California for 3 weeks. Then it sat on port in a storage container for 4 weeks … and we still haven’t gotten it. We are using blank packages with stickers for those bags (12 oz are mostly for retail stores). We are hoping this doesn’t happen with our 1-pound (16 oz) bags!
And as far as green coffee goes … a bunch of BIG companies freaked out and bought huge quantities. This caught me off guard as it happened really quick. As soon as I found out we reserved (this costs us 20 cents per pound) as much of our regular coffees as we could. We should be good with most, but on the decaf end ALL the Honduran Decaf was bought up. We have other options and will add an African Decaf to the mix soon. Crazy times for sure. We did have to adjust a few prices. Some 50 cents and some $1. Small businesses are worried right now … we, however, are not! We have the best customers all over the country. And as a thank you all orders placed from December 1st to December 18th will get a FREE Sample (dealer’s Choice). They will be in 4 oz bags that don’t have valves. This means the bag will expand, but that won’t affect the coffee. We are having nice 4 oz bags made and will eventually add the 4 oz sample size to the website.
Anyway, hope you and yours are well. Thanks for your continued support, and as always – You’re the best!And if you read all this, I am super impressed 😊 - Andrew
