Shipping/Returns Policy


We have negotiated shipping rates with United States Postal Service (USPS), and United Parcel Service (UPS Ground) to offer you the lowest shipping charges. All orders are shipped within a day and will arrive at the indicated Ship To address no later then 3 business days from day of order. Holidays are busier so allow a couple extra days.

Shipping is calculated in the Shopping Cart Check Out.  Actual Shipping cost will be calculated when we process your shipment. It is usually less than the calculated amount on your invoice. Heavy or oversize items may be subject to a surcharge in addition to the regular delivery charges.

At present The Coffee Barrel does not ship to addresses outside of the U.S.  We are happy to ship to our service members APO/AFO addresses via USPS Priority Mail or Flat Rate Boxes, whichever is less expensive.

If your order has arrived obviously damaged, refuse the order with the shipping carrier. For hidden damage you will need to file a claim with the shipping company which we will assist with.  Always take a picture of the damage providing evidence which is much appreciated and will help expedite a solution. Call us (517) 694-9000 or email us at as soon as possible so we can start the process of getting you your product to you!
