I'm looking for a dropship provider for coffee brewers and other specialty coffee equipment.  Nothing high end, more consumer oriented.  Is there anybody out there offering this?

Drop Ship in my book usually applies where one orders from an outlet but the product ships directly from the manufacturer or his warehouse.  

If this is how you are using the term, I don't understand the question.  One of my biggest bitches is how UPS maintains warehoused goods for online companies so if you place an order, it not only drop ships from Memphis, but you have no choice of shipper.  (I have to pay 2nd day International UPS rates here and you don't even want to know $$$$$$)  (God Love United States Postal Service Priority Mail)

Go to Chris Coffee or Sweet Maria's or any number of online sources for specialty coffee equipment and who cares where it ships from as long as the price is fair and the shipping cost is acceptable, if you're purchasing for yourself.  

If your message implies that you wish to be a dealer for various lines of equipment, define the equipment you wish to "sell" and go to the manufacturers, importers or their representatives and find out how to do business with them.  At the very least you'll require a Federal Tax ID and license for the business you're in as well as probably some financial data to support your stability and reputation.  You would purchase at a "wholesale" price from your business partner, mark-up accordingly and have the Mfg./Importer "drop ship" from their facility, or not depending on their requirements for you to stock their product.

I'm talking about a situation where, instead of needing to house an inventory of products to ship out, someone orders off my website, I send the order through to the wholesaler, and they then slap my logo sticker on the box and ship it out as if it was coming from me.  The buyer, from their end, feels like they're buying from me, but they're really buying through me.

There are several broadbrush dropship companies out there, like Doba.com, who coordinate the wholesalers and the sellers and their relationship.  But I'm just looking for a coffee hardware wholesaler who has Chemex, Hario, French presses, vacuum brewers, etc. and people order them through my site and they ship it out for me.

I think drop ship provider is not a problem nowadays. You can search some information provided on the internet about this.

Try the Worldwide Brand Drop Ship Coffee Makers. The Worldwide Brand has 8,000 drop ship companies. Here you can easily find drop ship coffee makers suppliers and you can even join to sell drop ship makers on your websites, eBay, and others.

You may also try the Alvin’s of San Francisco Coffee and Tea Wholesale. They are also providing coffee and equipment. Any drop ship request can be provided by them.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

Hey guys, I usually buy on amazon here in germany. What I don't like is how dropship they categorize their products, i usually wanna see all products by a specific manufacturer not sorted by sellers. Sometimes the manufacturer and the seller on amazon are the same like and have their own site, in this case, http://www.handkaffeemuehle.de/ (which is where I bought my grinder).
