    I work with a group of coffee farms in Costa Rica that would like to start selling directly to the US market. Dealers take a lot of the profit and also mix the coffee beans from various sources. If you need a consistent experience it is best to work directly with the growers. Please contact me, Jeffrey Puckett, at 702-822-6215. You are always welcome to visit the farms personally or we can arrange for shipping directly to you.

    thank you, Jeffrey, do you have any website or other more detailed information about your group of farms and what sort of coffees you are offering?
    thank you

    No website yet for the coffee growers. I was down in Ecuador recently visiting a community of cocoa growers when a friend of mine asked me if I would work with a local farm co-op to help them sell directly to the US. I plan to visit Costa Rica again soon to meet the growers myself. I used to live in Costa Rica from 2009 to 2015 and still have a lot of friends there. Did you see the recent episode of "The Profit" on CNBC featuring a company that imports coffee directly from farms in Central America? That seems to be the best way to get high quality coffee, to develop a relationship with some individual farms. You will have a better experience if you know everything about where the coffee is grown and how it is handled during shipping.

    We, Ensoluna SA in Guatemala, are green coffee exporting company, mainly from each different 20 farms to overseas customers.

    as for Suggestions? it would take days to write my suggestions. Specially I do not know what you can do and I do not have any understanding of your company & capability...etc. so I do not want to assume....

    my experience selling green beans from farms to overseas customers? Extremely complicated and difficult.

    My only advice is that you must thoroughly study and investigate what you are planning to do. Without the complete understanding of this business, you will probably make so many mistakes which will cost you a lot of money and headaches.
