Unfortunately, Charities don't get to ship their products for free. We do not make any proceeds off of the shipping and instead simply pass the exact cost on to you. We have found that USPS flat rate boxes are the easiest way to ship the coffee and have even been able to get price reduced rates once the quantity is above 20 pounds. If you are only ordering 12oz bags in a large quantity, we will be able to reduce the price a little bit and just use large flat rate boxes. Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions or comments about the shipping costs.
