    Hi

    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 am from Ethiopia and my freind has coffee farm and wants to have importers contact all over the world, can you help us in this case?

    Kopi Bali uses only high grade beans
    cultivated in the highlands of Bali, where volcanic soil and a cool climate provide a highly favourable environment for the arabica coffee tree.

    I think you have to first come up with your working budget for your business. If you have your eye on Ethiopia, it is always best to travel to the country so that you can see for yourself how they grow coffee. From there, you can then do the next steps.

    As what has been advised, you may need to start small and form partnerships.

    Goodluck!

I want to import coffee from Ethiopia to Canada and start my own coffee brand. I made some research and the ethiopian coffee seems to be one of the best coffee out there. I know nothing about import/export so I would really appreciate your help.

    My questions :

    1. How to I find producers/growers?
    2. Once I contact the producers, do I need to represent them in the country?
    3. Is there any taxes related to coffee buying and importation?

    Any book recommendations, websites would be great too. Thanks in advance.

    Omerta, just wanted to know if you have met your goals of starting your own label ,it's been awhile from the dates and info I have read here in the forum, I am new to the forum an all your questions are very valid and so is the guidance you received. I also recently found out that my wife's family has a coffee plantation in Colombia where we take small quantities back with us to the states and now would ask the forum for guidance as to what quantity of green coffee I can take back to the states with no problems we also can roast here in Colombia. Any help with this issue would be mostly appreciated. Thank You

    for regular joe schmo, it is impossible to go to the source (Ethiopia? from Canada) and find farms, find exporters, import green beans to Canada, clear customs, transport them to your city. find a roaster, find a graphic designer to make your own branded coffee bag, find valve bag factory, package..... WoW !!!!! can you imagine doing this? well, 1000 of coffee companies are doing it, but not for the Joe.
    But if you can find a coffee factory that owns their own coffee farms, graphic artiest, roaster, peeler, packaging facility and exporting...etc in Guatemala? that they can do everything for you and ship you the roasted your own branded bean bags to your place for e-commerce business, that would be very ideal.
    please check out ensoluna dot com
    they do this, believe it or not. I just wanted you to know it is possible when you know right person / company in the coffee country.

    Hi everybody. To be honest I haven't done much. I haven't been on the forum for almost 2 years but I've started to lurk a little now. Maybe I'll do something. Anyway ,good luck with your goals.

    Hi "Omerta"

    Welcome back!

    Thanks for the update. We often wonder what happened when someone writes posts on this Forum and then they disappear.

    We hope you'll keep visiting us often.

    Green Mountain Coffee Roasters

    I'm very fussy, grind my own beans, invested in a good coffeemaker. I never liked Starbucks coffees.

    I've tried a lot of different brands and I've even experimented with roasting my own beans (don't bother). I've never found a brand that can compare in my mind with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. They have so many different types. I know people who buy two or three different varieties of GMCR and blend them.

    But you have to realize that each person reacts differently. It's a very personal thing. For example, I brewed beer for years and I prefer certain micro-brewery beers over others. I like a nice body, not thin watery beer and I prefer a richer, darker brew. A friend likes Bud Light better. That's how he likes his brew.

    Same with coffee. You might like brands sold by Walmart better than gourmet brands. It's your taste buds that make the judgement call.
