Shipping and Delivery
We want to provide you with the freshest coffee possible so we roast each week based on the orders we receive. In order to get you your order o time, we ask that wholesale orders be placed before Friday at noon for roasting and delivery the following week. If an order is placed after Friday, we can't guarantee that we'll get you exactly what you want when you want it. But please rest assured: you'll never be without coffee!
Retail orders received before Tuesday 8 a.m. will be shipped out the same week. In general, packages will arrive the same week they are shipped but neither Canpar nor Canada Post guarantee exact arrivals days/times. If a tracking number is required, please contact us.
Retail Customer Shipping
Customers ordering coffee direct to their home will receive their coffee via Canpar or Canada Post depending on their shipping address. In general, packages will arrive the same week they are shipped but neither Canpar nor Canada Post guarantee exact arrivals days/times. If a tracking number is required, please contact us.

Customers in all other regions will pay the full cost of shipping. Equator is committed to using the most cost-effective shipping methods possible. Buying Clubs or Food Co-ops ordering larger quantities should contact us for shipping information.
*For your convenience (understanding that many people are not available to sign for deliveries), ALL CANPAR SHIPMENTS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY PROCESSED AS "NO SIGNATURE REQUIRED" unless we are notified otherwise (by phone or email). This means Canpar will leave the package at your door. If you are uncomfortable with that option, please feel free contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or choose one of the other shipping methods (pick-up or Canada Post).
