The Chilean customs policies are way too strict. Last time I ordered some green beans the order was burnt down because it lacked a fito and fumigation certificate. I have already bought a pack of samplers to the same retailer and it arrived to my place, but the last one (16 pounds of coffee) didn't.

I really want to buy some green beans to home-roast my own coffee. I don't even have a roaster here in my town or in the next 2000 miles. And I want same non-stale coffee!!!.

Hope you can help me find a farmer or cooperative selling their beans online with a fito and fumigation certificate. Hopefully no more than 50 pounds.

Thanks in advance

I've heard good things about these guys in Oakland - http://www.sweetmarias.com/index.php

One step removed from the farm but presumably they add lots of value in the importation/documentation/quality of product department....

Not sure they ship to Chile, though.
