Shipping and Handling

Coffee: We ship our coffee products from the farm directly to customers via USPS Priority Mail. The coffee shipments are carefully packaged for safe transit. Delivery to the U.S. mainland generally takes 2 to 3 days. This method ensures that the roasted coffee beans, whole or ground, are fresh on arrival. Shipping rates are based on the weight of the product and the size of the package. We will ship to a military base or diplomatic location by using an APO, FPO, or DPO address. Current standard rates for shipping within the USA:

0.5 to 1.5 pounds: $8.05
2 to 4 pounds: $15.05
4.5 to 8 pounds: $21.10

Return Policy

Coffee: The roasted coffee being sent to you is always freshly roasted to order with our fluidized-bed air roaster just before we ship it. We do not maintain inventory of roasted coffee on a shelf to fulfill orders. Given that roasted coffee has a limited shelf-life, we do not accept product returns.

In the case of an error in your order or damage in shipping that compromises the quality of your order, please contact us for resolution of the problem (808-322-0652; absolute.palate@gmail.com).

Mac Nut Products: Our macadamia nut products are sourced from an independent vendor, who stands by their quality. We deliver these products on the basis of that quality validation. However, if there is a quality issue with any item, please contact us to resolve the problem (808-322-0652; absolute.palate@gmail.com).

Product Pricing

Numerous forces contribute to the rise of costs for doing business. Coffee prices have been increasing globally, along with regular price inflation. Costs have been constantly rising for essential treatments to protect our crop and trees from the coffee berry borer (CBB) and coffee leaf rust (CLR), for needed fertilizers, and for manual labor, especially scarce pickers who hand-harvest the berries over a 4-month period. From time to time, we are forced, reluctantly, to make suitable adjustments to product prices in order to defray increases in our farming costs. We hope that you can be understanding about this situation.
