Dear Sir:

I offer two alternatives to you. Both will allow you to take advantage of Colombian coffee manufacturers, who have exported technology and opened coffee stores overseas.

I have not doubt that Chinese people will drink coffee soon.

Dear Sir: I think that opening a coffee shop in China is a very good idea, because as you know coffee is an internationl beverage. The importance of the bussiness success is to be original and to offer a good coffee quality. Here in Ecuador-South America I run a cofee business so if you need advices or anything else you can write me to my e-mail adress. Karina
