WHAT IS BEST AVAILABLE COFFEE SUPPLIER OPTION?
Finding coffee supplier is easy but finding the most clicked one is not that easy. Getting the best one is more likely getting your real needs.
So the key to get the best one is only knowing and sharing your real needs. I know best coffee is the main stuffs to be considered. In this case as we knew it already, so I put it at the end.
Small and medium coffee supplier are sometime tricky as I found from related coffee forum.
One buyer ask to buy and the supplier sets it to charge the bill automatically. It is not honest. You ask to buy (you know the coffee type) and you pay it.
Bigger volume is done under shipping using real ship and import export relation. It is impossible to be the same story as the first one.
I offer business model with low or no risk for you as a buyer with the price as you will never meet on the market (compare to the risk that I may have). Currently the green bean arabica specialty coffee starts at 4.5 USD/kg and one of our best green bean arabica specialty coffee is at about 9 USD/kg (no delivery cost – you wait it for this coffee on your address under our standard packaging using plastic wrap, using simple paper box or simple wood box) and This is only applicable on most big city or a city with big harbour/port. Smaller and further city from port may require additional sort of FedEx or DHL service (we have to confirm to our shipping colleague first).
Real no-risk at your side (as buyer)?
Yes. If you can show us that you are a member of Coffee organization or we meet before (probably that you would like to visit our farm first) then we will send the coffee to your address (small to medium size – most likely less then 1 ton. After you confirm with our coffee on your address then you can pay it.
How to pay it? We can discuss it. Bigger size may be requested to be wired to our bank account. Small size may be done to paypal. Simple.
If you are a honest buyer after some closed-agreed transactions then I can send more coffee to you (I have many of them as I also have farms and I need some of green bean of specialty coffee for my cafe).
Taking less risk to buyer is a must.
That is our target in every deal. Small, medium or big volume deal. We respect any deal. We have cafe and a buyer always ask for a cup of coffee. We put this deal as the same order with bigger one.
TYPE OF SERVICE
It should be clear what kind of service is required. What kind of packaging is required.
We can also offer a different type of service. If you ask a big volume and for our best product (we have to discuss about this first) then probably we will offer you other service as our gift in additional to packaging, delivery, etc.
We love coffee, we love the coffee business, we love coffee peoples here and there. We take narrow margin with the expectation that you and your family like and love our coffee and farm. We grow our coffee and we love it. We share more coffee and we share our joys too.
You enjoy our coffee. Sit and relax. We make it for you as we love it.
This one of the major issues. How can you know that the coffee will meet your need?
Remember, price is at the other side of the coffee type.
Specialty and first grade of Arabica Coffee will be different to any Robusta graded coffee. There are many specialty coffee in Indonesia. I can point out at least three to four types of Java Arabica Specialty within or close to Bandung regions.
Let’s call it Garut Arabica Java Coffee or Preanger Coffee, the second one is Ciwideuy Arabica Coffee (it is similar but on the western side of another mountain and the last one is specialty coffee from Tangkuban Perahu Area. Which on the best one? It is up to you. Yes, you need sample(s).
Which is the best supplier? A suitable coffee type with your price. I think the best coffee supplier for this reason that you have to contact the farmer directly under your business scheme.
OTHERS NECESSARY STUFFS (IF NEEDED SO, THIS MAY BE A MAJOR ISSUES):
Related to local condition: best coffee seeds are the most important, suitable location (height, altitude) and local support. Many farmers (especially in Indonesia) are sharing best coffee tree handling from seedling to harvesting. It is simple but a collective jobs are required. No other ways here.
Related to farming plans: seed, fertilizer, handling and processing shall be using a most suitable ways (not necessary to the best way).
Best way may refer to longer time and more resources. Many farmers do not really agree to have it best way. The price may be more expensive and longer queuing time for processing may risk other unprocessed green bean/red-bean-harvested-coffee-fruit. Many of local fermentation and drying place are small or limited size in many farm in Indonesia. We use more appropriate way to make our best coffee. It is a sort of secret that farmers actually can adjust any type of coffee quality and taste results.
A group or a farmers in a region has an agreed ways about how to handle the coffee. It is the main reason if you really taste one coffee in Indonesia different between one to another.
