    Why not market the beans directly? You have Internet access. Some of the estates down there process and ship coffee directly. Same with some fincas in Costa Rica. Can you box and ship the coffee in small quantities?

    JBMC

    Hello fishouston,
    I am interested in your "wild coffee" idea. What are you closer to - Mavis Bank, or Moyahll? Do you know O'Neil Blake? Or maybe you know Keeble Munn, Norman Grant, or even my business partner Errol Gillespie?
    Errol has a 12 acre farm in the Blue Mtns. and we are looking to bring the next crop into the US. Perhaps we could share a container? There are two issues you may need to resolve: First you must have the Coffee Board approve the coffee for export (unless you are not marketing it as authentic JBMC), and second you will need a licensed JBMC importer in the US. It is not easy to import authentic JBMC into the US, but that ensures the quality and authenticity. As you probably know, there is a big problem with fraudulent JBMC. It is worth the extra steps to maintain quality.

    Send me an email if you would like to speak more on this.
