Seriously, look into toll roasting. That way (in essence), you only pay for the coffee you sell, as you sell it. Once you're established, you can look into a different relationship. There's enough to do right now, figuring out how to market your product online, how to attract customers, etc...Advertising signature removed by moderator.

omerta: We don't deal with producers yet. The beans I mention buying above came from Royal Coffee Importers out of Oakland, Ca. We will be working with importers until we're established enough to develop direct relationships with producers by traveling to their countries.
I do have the name and contact information for a guy importing nothing but Ethiopian beans, but I have no idea of the quality. And that's a big reason to start out by doing business with a well established importer, imo.

I dont know much about sourcing b ut if and when you do get set up, be sure to try out our website - it is designed especially for small roasters like yourself and allows you to set up your own coffee ecommerce store for free - The Coffee Locator .
When finished, your store should look something like this example - Caffè Bonani, Italy - TheCoffeeLocator
All pages are optimized for search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, helping boost website traffic.
It is a great way to start out your online business.
Best of luck!

There are few producers are selling on Ebay. It really doesn't mean they are cheaper but they are there to sell their beans and sometimes it is cheaper.
If you are looking to start small, check out those people and some of the green bean sellers like Sweet Marias, Bodhi leaf coffee, or some of others. You won't get great price but you can start your own brand without much of your capitol commitment.
I don't know if you know much about ecommerce. But it is not walk in the park. There are many thousands of sellers and millions buyers.
Good luck with your business.....

Ecommerce is good if you look after your brand. Like any shop on a high street, online sellers need to be look after there shop. Keep it up-to-date, well advertised, and clients must be treated well - welcomes, reviews encouraged, and feedback always responded to immediately, to build up the company image. A little like hotels are now doing with sites like last-minute, tripadvisor and airbnb (they are bending over backwards to get good/keep good reviews).
