Where are you bringing the beans in from?
The wholesalers/importers here in the states charge roughly $2.50 - $3.20 PER POUND for orders of that size of arabica beans. (Or are you talking about robusta?)
My guess is that you'll find a wholesaler in Germany to supply your needs.

Eldub, you think that Germany whosaler sells $2,50-$3.20 arabican beans ?

Here in the US, quality arabica beans sell for more like $5-$6/kg.
I'm not sure you are going to find any exporter in brazil willing to ship a small quantity, let alone for the price you are wanting. The cost of shipping will be crazy, imo.
China doesn't grow much coffee, I don't think. Viet nam might be an option, but 400kg isn't a very big order.
We order about 400kg at a time from wholesalers here in the US. The beans cost $2.50- $5 per pound. (Thats' roughly $5 - $10/kg.) That is a small order that doesn't warrant international shipping charges. Most coffee beans are transported from the source countries in containers fo a size that justify the shipping costs due to economies of scale. Shipping small amounts overseas isn't cost effective. And that's why I'm guessing you need ot find someone in Europe who imports large quantities of beans to help lower the costs.

You will do better bringing in green beans and roasting them in your country, imo. Get ahold of forum member "expat" and ask him about european green bean suppliers. (He roasts in Ireland.)

I agree... Expat would know about importing to Europe. Also buying 400kg is not that much of coffee.... If you want to import any green coffee beans from origin of country, the mount should be at least 22,000 pounds which means around 10,000 kg. Now, that amount would make sense for the higher shipping cost... which will be around 3-4,500 dollars.

It all depends what you want to buy... Different part of the world offer different beans and you just have to choose one region or make your own blend ...
