Your Guide to International Coffee Shipping 🌎☕

The world is craving specialty coffee. The rise of home cafes, independent cafes and discerning coffee connoisseurs means demand for expertly roasted beans, unique blends and exotic origins are brewing strong.

International coffee shipping might seem like a daunting mountain of paperwork and logistics, but fear not, caffeine comrades! This friendly guide will equip you with the knowledge to get your beans into eager hands across oceans and borders.

Navigating the Customs Maze 🛃📦

Whether it be for personal shipments or business shipments, the first thing you need to do is to ensure your coffee bean products are certified and compliant, armed with all the proper paperwork.

For personal shipments, ShipIt recommends sending five bags or less of coffee; however, these coffee products must have a local FDA. A shortcut to know if a product is FDA approved locally is to check if the product is available in supermarkets or grocery stores in your local supermarket.

However, if you’ll be sending more than five bags of coffee abroad, there may be additional paperwork depending on the destination country.

Tips to Secure the Beans 🫘

There are a few ways that you can wrap your coffee beans.

First – you must package your beans securely. Besides the primary packaging of your product, secure your beans by wrapping them in a secondary packaging to prevent the primary packaging from getting damaged.

Second – make sure the box you are shipping your items in is packed securely. Utilizing all the space in your shipping box helps as every inch saved is a peso earned, and a happy shipping budget means more beans in those travel mugs across the globe.
