Im new here, how does a drop-shipping coffee business work? Do you buy beans from a wholesale importer. Then have them send to a roaster? Then have someone grind the beans, package them in your branded bags and store them all. Oh, and ship them to customers?In general, dropshipping is a complex and diverse form of making money, it's like a normal business which you can do by yourself and which can be really profitable. Coffee is a well known product on the dropshipping market, so it will not be a problem for you to make money in your niche, especially when youre a true coffee man and you know what people like to drink. But you should understand that you will be needed to promote your product. So don't forget about a little marketing. Personally, I think that you need to read a groovefunnels review on the internet to understand how everything works and what tools to use in order to promote your product.
I don't own a dropshipping business but a friend's company is pretty much involved in the industry. Yeah, I think what @topher said is the basic foundation of it.Albertr. It's simple. Customer(you) create a website and label. You send the label to a roaster and he waits for you to send orders and a shipping label. The roaster produces the coffee and ships to your customer. I have a couple people I do this for. Super simple to start. The hard part is marketing your site.
Ive been working on this as well. I do believe that you need to provide customers with something of value. It is something I am struggling with because there are so many avenues and its tough to know what's best. perhaps I should choose one. The easy way out would be to donate a portion of profits to an organization of choice.This is what we have been working on for the last couple of months! It's not so much that branding
is everything, but that you have to build your own community, you need to provide your customers
with something that they need, not just good coffee, anyone can do that.
