    Help Please: Lots of Questions for Coffee Business Insiders

    if i wanted to go into the coffee business myself and supply coffee to folgers, keurig, dunkin donuts, maxwell house, hills bros, tasterchoice, ect........ assuming that these guys purchase commodity coffee, how would it be profitable for me if im rich and can purchase a plantation in some tropical part of the world assuming again of course that it could even be feasibly realistic? if the united states is the biggest coffee market in the world, how can someone get into the coffee business for themselves and make maybe not good but decent money in this business??????? how could someone get into the coffee business assuming that they have the money to buy a plantation as big as they wanted with workers included and make good profit??? do they need experience in this industry even before getting their foot in the door?????? if someone wanted to sell their coffee to the largest coffee companies in the united states and when i mean largest coffee companies i mean by sales and production, what would they need to do to make maybe not good but at least decent profit????????? what type of coffee farmers would have the very best chance of surviving in this industry assuming its survival of the fittest???????? can a coffee industry insider please tell me. rsvp. thank you.

    if you have the courage to pursue your dreams, please just do it, rather than keep asking someone else's opinions.

    the someone else is not you!
