The Coffee Fool LLC shall not be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the materials on this site or the performance of the products, even if The Coffee Fool LLC has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Applicable law may not allow the limitation of exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
In the event that a The Coffee Fool LLC product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, The Coffee Fool LLC reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price. The Coffee Fool LLC reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged.

Credit Card Information
As a part of the check out process, you may choose to use or be billed to your credit card on file with us. You may choose to not have a card on file with us and those settings/options are in the checkout and account sections. We accept all major credit cards -- VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

Shipment Arrival Times
Your coffee will be shipped fresh after you place your order, usually the next business day. Shipping dates may be impacted by weekends, holidays and weather. Orders are sent via USPS or UPS. Depending on your location, shipping times range from 1 to 10 days. Once packed and shipped, you can expect delivery by US Priority Mail within 2 to 3 business days. 95% of orders sent by US Priority Mail are delivered within this short time span. However, we cannot guarantee the reliability of the US Post Office. On rare occasions, delivery can exceed 5 days. If you have not received your coffee within 5 days, please contact us. If your package does not show as delivered through the USPS.com website after 10 days we will resend your order at no additional charge. UPS Overnight and 2-Day Express Delivery are available for an additional surcharge, but please note that weekends are not a part of the total time calculation for services such as Next Day Air and 2nd Day Air. For example, a UPS Next Day Air placed on Thursday would ship from us on Friday and be received to you on the following Monday. If you pick a guaranteed delivery such as UPS Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air and they do not deliver on time due to any reason other than weather, we will refund you for the total shipping charge only.
Risk of Loss
PLEASE NOTE: We never send any of our coffee packages with "Signature Required". That means that UPS and the US Postal System will most likely leave your package from us at your door. When the tracking systems for either carrier indicate a successful delivery, you agree that at that point all risk of loss and title for such items pass to you. At times either carrier may decide for whatever reason, not to leave your package at your door. You will then have to collect your package from them or arrange for redelivery.
