The closest Nespresso Boutique to Portland, Oregon is in California. I live in Coffee country but have to pay for shipping.
Starbucks started in Seattle and Coffee People started in Portland but to Nespresso, Portland is a geographical oddity...Two days from everywhere. If the coffee ships from Kent, WA then I get it in one or two days via UPS delivered to my door. If Nespresso ships from St. Petersburg, FL, good luck...I had one shipment that never showed up and the last one was sent USPS and was left in my mail box which is down the street.
(btw, we never get a shipping confirmation with ship via and tracking information...maybe they want to keep it secret???
Or maybe a surprise to see if and when you receive your coffee!!!LOL!!) If I'm paying for premium shipping, I expect it delivered to my door. Better yet, why can I buy the machines at four different locations 5 minutes from my house but I can't buy the fricking coffee???!!!
