I'm in the process of starting a small coffee roaster just north of Dallas, TX.
Planning on importing a few hundred lbs Green Arabica Beans from HONDURAS to start with. To save me some problems, I thought I'd check to see if there is anyone that may be able to provide me with the beans at a good price. Any suggestions?
I also need packaging material and possibly used roaster.

Could help you with Indonesian beans, but nothing from the Caribbean coast! If you are interested give me a buzz.

Charles, got this email on Monday morning. For a used roaster you could have a look at this one. Alfredo is in Guatemala, so I do not think freight would be too much of an issue from there.
Cheers and good luck Alun
