Cacao Shipping Options

Cacao Shipping Options

HERE’S A QUICK GUIDE TO HELP YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHIPPING OPTION FOR YOUR PURCHASE.

We use USPS priority flat rate shipping in the U.S., which only takes 2-3 days to arrive anywhere in the country. That’s after processing time, so please allow a full week between when you order and when you need the cacao the be in your hands!

We currently fulfill orders on Tuesday and Friday and include any orders placed by 12pm Pacific time on those days. Then packages go to the post office early on Wednesday and Saturday. Examples:

  • Order late Monday night and you'll probably receive your package on Friday of the same week (2 day of processing + 2 business/mail days)
  • Order on Thursday and you'll probably receive your package the following Tuesday (2 days of processing + 2 business/mail days)

Insurance is included in case something goes wrong, so you can purchase with confidence.

NOTE: We cannot be responsible for a mistake in your mailing address. If a package gets returned to us, you’ll have the option to pay for shipping a second time.

The checkout page will automatically display your shipping package options based on the weight of your order.

    EXPRESS SHIPPING

    We now offer express shipping in the U.S.! This way your package will arrive 1-2 days after mailing, as opposed to 2-3 days with priority mail. (Please remember to account for processing time, as explained above.)

    In an Express Padded Envelope you can ship:

    • 0.5 to 4 lbs of ceremonial cacao paste (blocks or ground) in the U.S.

    • 1-4 bags of Ritual Drinking Chocolate (14.1 oz version)

    • (Glass jars of Survival Butter or Drinking Chocolate CAN’T ship in the padded envelope.)

    We do ship internationally at extra cost, and the same packing configurations apply. International shipping is automated in our online shop.

    International shipping normally takes 6-10 business days, but could be delayed due to COVID-19 (even up to 2-3 weeks, depending on destination country).

    Also please note that the “tracking number” provided by USPS does not give progress updates for international shipments, other than to say if it has shipped and arrived. And even that information has sometimes been lacking during the quarantine.
