    Question Hi From New York/Ethiopia

    Hi All,

    I am new in this coffee business and, of course, this forum. I am now In New York City and I have a full time job (I am a CPA). I have a friend working for a non-for-profit now based in Ethiopia. We are looking into the coffee bean business and would like to know more from your guys. We have communicated with a local Ethiopia Eco-friend processing exporter of green coffee beans. We can supply 20/40 container of sun dried (Grade 3, 4 and 5) and washed coffee beans (Grade 1 and 2). We are still at the exploration stage and would like to know whether you guys think there is a market in the US for Ethiopia coffee. I heard the freight cost would be significant (it can be the stopper).

    What do you think is a best business model (i.e. create a brand or simply export from Ethiopia and bring the beans in the US and further distribute)?

    Thanks, looking forward to discussing more.

    Larry

    Thanks! We are in the processing of setting up an US based company and guess will soon be ready for importation.
