Home Delivery Changes in January 2011

Beginning in January, our home delivery service schedule will go to once each week. Orders placed each week through Thursday at 10:30 am will be delivered on Fridays. This will not affect mail orders placed on the Website, only our free home delivery service in Ann Arbor.

Why, you may ask? Well, several reasons. First, as we've grown and have more outlets for purchasing Mighty Good Coffee, less of you are ordering on the Web. More of you are purchasing coffee at our retail outlet on Main St., or in one of our partner grocery outlets. Second, we are spending a lot more time on the road making sure that all of our various retail outlets, including our own cafe are well stocked which leaves less time for getting to all the home deliveries. Last, in an effort to stay competitive with the rising costs of our green coffee (see annarbor.com), we need to be more efficient. Delivering once a week to homes will save on our energy use, employee time, and ultimately, allow us to keep our home delivery included in the price of your coffee, that is keeping it at the same rates we are currently charging.

Feel free to e-mail us with any questions.
