How to import coffee from Honduras to the USA

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Coffee Related Buy/Sell/Trade : One Thread

I am trying to import coffee from Honduras to the USA. Does anyone knows where to look for information about the taxes, tarifs, rules, regulations about importing coffee to the USA. I already found the coffee in Honduras, just need to know how to bring it to the USA.

Thank you for you help.

In my research in opening a business, I found that the SBA (Small Business Association) has information on how to start an import/export business. I think the main focus for them is export, but I remember reading about import issues as well. Most everything the SBA does is free and they are very helpful. They also like to help existing businesses as well. Not just start-ups.

Try this link as well. http://www.ita.doc.gov/ Iíve not fully researched, but may be helpful to you as well.
