Christmas shipping update

Modern Standard Coffee shipping

Sadly we are no longer able to guarantee delivery before Christmas. This is due to the unprecedented delays experienced by all UK couriers due to the Royal Mail industrial action. We have done all we can to ensure orders are sent in time but unfortunately we've had to take this decision so we don't make promises we can't keep.

We will still be roasting and despatching coffee orders up to 23rd December, but we cannot guarantee when they will arrive due to these severe courier delays. Our roastery closes for the Christmas break on Friday 23rd, and will reopen on Tuesday 3rd January.

For orders under 2kg, we ship with Royal Mail.

  • Standard shipping - Royal Mail 48
  • Express shipping - Royal Mail 24

For orders over 2kg, we ship with Parcel Force.

  • Standard shipping - Parcel Force 48 
  • Express shipping - Parcel Force 24

We are unable to guarantee pre Christmas delivery, but ParcelForce are more likely to deliver pre Christmas than Royal Mail.

It is highly unlikely that orders placed on or after 19/12 via Royal Mail will be delivered before Christmas. But we will continue to roast and dispatch them until the 23rd to give you the best possible chance of receiving your order before Christmas.
