Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy

We strive to fulfill orders in a timely manner. We strive to ship orders (with in stock items) within 1 week.  During peak shipping season – Thanksgiving to Christmas – please allow 2 weeks for your order to be shipped.  We typically roast coffee once a week.

We have very limited personnel and requests to ship orders on a particular date or to delay shipments until just before Christmas cause us many logistical challenges.  Unless absolutely necessary, please allow us to ship your order as soon as we are able. Additionally, because of major shipping delays in recent years, requests for delivery just before Christmas are difficult to fulfill, even if we ship it at what we think the appropriate time.  We are unable to make delivery guarantees in general and orders with requests to hold until close to Christmas have a great likelihood of being delivered after the first day of Christmas (December 25th).

If you require delivery by a particular date, please include the particulars in the comments section of checkout. We will do our best to accommodate such requests.  We also recommend sending us an email (skete@societystjohn.com) after you place your order providing the order number and the requested delivery date. This is especially helpful during the peak shipping season – when we may not notice order comments right away.

Various Service levels – (i.e. Next Day Air, Second Day Air, etc.) – should be understood as the estimated time in transit (per carrier terms) once the package has been tendered to UPS or FedEx. One should NOT expect an order placed via Second Day Air – for example – to be delivered two days after placing an order. We require time to process and ship the order.

Shipping costs displayed during checkout on our website should not be considered published rates. Shipping costs on our website may include handling fees to cover packaging materials, weekly pickup fees, etc.

Please ensure that your shipping address is complete and accurate. Include suite or apartment numbers.

We have a policy of not including invoices when the billing address is different from the shipping address. When a shipped order does include an invoice (i.e. the billing and shipping address are the same), the invoice never includes pricing.

    • you can request cancellation by email (skete@societystjohn.com) before your order is dispatched.  a full refund - minus credit card processing fees - will be given if we are able to cancel your order prior to shipment;
