    My name is Lee and I am located in the Florida Keys and have a friend in Nicaragua who Introductions-20562600_1263719233751272_1883908262_n.jpg produces coffee (see attached) and asked me to poke around regarding importing it into the States. So .... I'm doing that .... poking. Hello, all.

    Just now, Lee Lapid emailed be like below

    Hi Alex: I found your info on the coffee forum.
    Above is a photo of coffee that a friend in Nicaragua is attempting to sell in the States.
    What questions should I ask him so that I can pitch it intelligently to Ö.. I donít even know who Ö..
    Thanks for your time.


    here are some questions that you need to ask.
    1. complete farm info if he has a farm of his own.
    2. but if he is a middle man who representing farms, also he need to provide farm information.
    3. complete coffee information. what type of coffee, varietals, process..etc
    4. how much he is producing...
    5. when is export period and which month customers need to visit him in Nicaragua to cup and buy the coffee.
    6. how much coffee available for sales.

    However, if your friend is trying to sell the packaged coffee (either ground or roasted coffee) from Nicaragua to USA, 99.999% it will not work at all. the best bet is to sell Green beans. Not roasted or ground beans.

    also, selling coffee really needs a lot of information, education of your own, understanding of coffee process...etc. because you wouldn't be able to answer questions from your potential customers.

    good luck.
    Alex from Ensoluna SA

    Another coffee lover here, my name is Ella and I am from Florida. I believe in the saying that, "All you need is love and a cup of coffee."
    Please pray for America as Hurricane Irma hits us. Keep safe pals!

    I have been lurking here for a while. My name is Dan and I live in the Thousand Islands region of New York State. I love good coffee, especially Costa Ricans, since my wife and I spend a lot of time there.

    I am expecting a 1-kg Mill City roaster to arrive at my door mid-November and am looking forward to improving my regions access to fresh roasted coffee.

    Hi folks, My name is Richard from Vermont, U.S. and I am in the process of getting a plan together to create a coffee business designed from the ground up to employ as many mentally and developmentally disabled people as possible. My question is, if there were no rules you had to follow, how would you accommodate workers who have differing abilities? i.e. Does your coffee shop really have to accept cash? Do super-automatic espresso machines really create an inferior product? As a consumer would an ethically sourced, sustainably grown product that you know directly benefits your neighbors with disabilities be a factor when making a decision which coffee to buy in the store or which shop to meet your friends for coffee? Honestly appreciated and thanks in advance! Good to be here, lots of valuable information.

    welcome, Dan. glad that you purchased 1 kg mill city roaster. That should work great. anyway, after you try it out, if you can, please post some your feedbacks and photos here. I am also very interested in knowing how it works out for you.

    where in Costa Rica did you stay?

    We traveled around a bit on our first few trips, mostly in the north of the country. We have since pretty much made Monteverde our home base while we are there.

    wow, you are staying at the best place in Costa Rica. about 4 hours from San Jose? to North? that would be my second place to go after "san marcos" in Lake Cocibolca in Nicaragua. I heard that island has one of the most unique coffees in the world.... but might be just a "hype" though.... anyway, welcome, Dan. hope to hear from you quite often.

    my name is Alex and I work in Guatemala selling green beans from several coffee farms to overseas.

    Hi Richard - you should reach out to Dave Baldwin at Furnace Hills Coffee in Westminster, MD. He might be a good person for you to speak with. Best of luck!
