    Thanks guys, I figured this could be an addition to Kapm's price list, as it is a commonly asked question among new members.

    Not sure but I just got 2 lbs delivered and it was Priority 3 Day shipping. Ordered on Thursday 4/26 and was delivered Saturday or Sunday (I was out of town so I don't know which day). Fastest I have ever gotten GHK.

    I've added shipping carriers and carrier delivery times to the spreadsheet, as well as some notes related to certain vendors.

    Let me know if there is anything else that would be helpful to list with these vendors.

    I loved kavaboy but they took forever to ship and get it to me too. I take it it's a Hawaii thing... just had to plan the order enough in advance that it isn't a problem.

    Naturally this lead to me ordering a lot of wakacaon with prime shipping due to my bad planning, which in retrospect seems like a massive missed opportunity. I never even got to do a proper bulk order from them and they supposedly had bulk discounts.

    Something else to add that would be very helpful for last minute shoppers would be the cut off time for same day shipping (actual shipping date, not just USPS label creation).

    Some vendors have more of a policy on this than others ;) I'll ask around and do some searching.

    Yeah. I know this one might be hard but it would be good to get some commitment from whatever vendors are willing to. Kava vendors, in general, at times seem to be the slowest and most unpredictable on when they'll get an order to the post office. It does get really annoying placing an order on Wednesday, paying for priority shipping, then realizing on Friday you need to pay for a weekend overnight upgrade for whatever Amazon Prime happens to have available.

    Added date which prices were checked to every vendor. Also added shipping times per request for several vendors. I have messages out to those that don't have a clear cut policy to see what they say.

    What a great idea to put this together. Saves alot of time cruising vendor websites to try and reference prices, etc.

    You're absolutely most welcome.

    I went in and did an overall price check today, so it should be as up-to-date as possible :)

    Updated all prices on spreadsheet.

    Updating the sheet regularly allows me to see the fine tuning adjustment some vendors make to their line. So I'll keep a running tab of changes. Here are a few:

    Kava king is now redirecting to www.iherb.com with a good bit lower pricing on instant drink mixes. I've updated the link. Simply click "Kava King" and it will take you to iherb. Edit: In Fact their instant drink mix, vanuatu blend is $28.80 a lb. I wonder if this was an error.

    Added nakamal at home's fire island instant.

    Adjusted price on Nambawan from $65 to $69

    Updated all prices today for the weekend.
    • Small increase on 11 year waka
    • Small increase on Wakacon's offerings. With lawena now being available again.
    I'm still over here eyeballing the kavaking offerings. Sub $30 for a lb of instant. I originally thought it was a mistake but it's still there over on Iherb @ $14.40 for a half pound of the Vanuatu blend.

    Kapm, my Kapm:

    Have you taken the plunge with Kava King's Vanuatu blend ?
    I'm curious, myself - despite not having actually broken through the RT, yet.
    I dream of kava working splendidly, and having an enormous amount in reserve: not unlike a collection of fine wine.

    Fwiw how my mental spreadsheet for kava shipping goes is two categories. The base line is "everybody has been great, even random strangers on the Internet," and then some get a star next to their name that means "super amazing." to be honest, for me it has always been the exact same with the quality of the kava itself except that even more stars get awarded.

    Heck did I ever mention how much I love Best Fijian Waka with the new batch of Tikaram's Kava Tonga 1:1 as a daytime kava? It's really really good a blend that is better than the sum of its part. I love it and am happy to drink it frequently. Just imagine how I feel about the kavas that earn a star!

    PS I also love Kavafied Kava Tonga, BKH Leka Hina, TKR TFR, the recent rarities from KavaTime, ....
