We have imported this coffee in the past but the quality was not consistent. However, in July this year, we met there and negotiated with the largest exporter of this coffee to bring some their fine coffees into the United States. We are waiting for a new-crop coffee samples and will then decide on the types that we will import on a more regular basis.
