    Greetings from Indonesia

    Hello im Abdul..
    I fell in love with coffee recently after I gave up sugar in purpose of healthier lifestyle..

    When I tried my regular mainstream coffee suddenly it tasted bad without sugar..
    Weirdly bitter and unnatural.. Lol

    Then I tried other coffee... Watching youtube videos about coffee..
    And trying fresh coffee..

    And then I fell in love and excited to everything about coffee..

    I haven't tried many coffee varieties so I'm still a noob..
    But I do love coffee from near my village..
    It's an area near an ancient volcano that erupted hundreds years ago so the area surrounding it is very fertile..
    Farmers planted coffee aside from other crops..
    But they plantation is still underdevelop..
    I am thinking if making this a bussiness..

    I love the idea of people from other countries can also enjoy this coffee..
    The Volcano Roast Coffee... Lol..

    That would be a wonderful name..

    There is much involved with selling coffee from origin, but don't let that stop you. I think right now you are in a learning phase, do much research and read as much as you can about anything coffee. Seems like you want to export green coffee, right? You need to make sure the coffee you plan to export is priced properly based on quality. You need to know variations of quality like the back of your hand. Start to read and self educate on cupping and coffee profiles. You need to find trustworthy people from A-Z, the coffee business is a very tight community and companies are built on trust and consistency. There is much that goes into it, more than you can ever imagine. I am being vague on purpose, you need to learn yourself or have a trustworthy mentor. If your serious and persistent, we would love to track your progress vi the forums.

    Good Luck & God Bless!
