  • KIWI CSrs "Order Beans from Bean Bay"?

    Are there any other Kiwis ordering from Bean Bay?
    It would be great to get something organised so we can save on shipping across the ditch.
    Andy has sourced a slightly cheaper freight company but we are still looking at $25 NZ per/kg
    for beans costing $9 p/kg in Aussie. :-/

    I have ordered 3 times so far but have priced shipping for 50kg at a time to bring the price down, but then it still needs distibuting in NZ when it arrives.

    Any ideas or suggestions? Yes moving to Aussie is a real option ;D

    Cheers CB

          NZ allows you to import greens? Do they go through quarantine?

            Yes its legal to import green beans, and my orders are regularly inspected and stamped by MAF, but do not get quarantined.
            This includes importing from the US and Aussie.

                        ...that must be NZ$

                        The best freight prices I know of from AU-NZ are from
                        http://www.xsbagsandboxes.com.au

                        Small lots like 5kg cost about $10/kg, larger lots are $5-$6/kg

                        Maybe someone else knows a better way to freight into NZ?

                          hmmm...that is about standard rates by international surface freight cost. The only way to go cheaper is to go container (full personal effect shipping), that goes by x cubic

                            Hi guys
                            I live in Christchurch and am (always) interested in sourcing good quality green beans. My consumption is half a kg a week, just to give an idea of quantities. If cost of shipping is not prohibitive Ill be very much interested, but I think it might take some creative ideas regarding shipping to make it worthwhile as (additional) shipping inside New Zealand is quite expensive.
                            Keep me informed
                            Cheers
                            Ilan

                              I would probably switch, it would definitely depend on the price as the roastery I currently get my beans from is a bit more expensive / kg , but has free shipping, so it averages out.
