Dear CBRC Followers,
In the last week we’ve been dealt some serious obstacles in the packaging department.
Last Friday (July 9th) we received word that our shipment of custom Biotre bags is going to be arriving late due to major delays within the supply chain and international shipping. Our current supply on hand has just about run out so this means that in the meantime you can expect to receive bulk 2.2lb bags of coffee in our previous, matte black bags with the tin-tie. This is a setback in our 2021 sustainability goals, but we have already submitted another order to ensure we don't have to go through this again.
This Friday (July 16) we received word from our can supplier that due to a combination of setbacks in their supply chain, manufacturing and order fulfillment our next batch of cans is going to be delayed 3-4 weeks. Needless to say, we are going to run out of cans.
Since we have grocery store obligations to keep, we will be removing all can packaging from our online store and will only sell 2.2lb bulk bags until our cans are restocked. The only remaining cans available online will be our current seasonal Brewed X and our High Joltage collaboration can. We will be doing our best to manage our current supply to keep the grocery store shelves stocked with our Signature Organic Blends and Bird Friendly coffees.
While these are very unfortunate and upsetting circumstances, the last year and a half has taught us to be resourceful and roll with the punches. We’re keeping our heads up and looking forward to kicking off the fall once all our packaging arrives in September.
We appreciate your continued support and understanding, you all are the best customers!
