Customs/taxes/devil's fees/godfather's donations etc.?????

Post by coffeeowl » Fri Nov 02, 2007 11:39 pm

Tonight's my mad night. I should be well in deep sleep... :sleepy5:
My last question is: are there any customs on green beans imported to EU from US? Anyone have any experience?

Can't help you there, coffeeowl. However, there are EU sources for green beans. To name one, there is www.ongebrand.nl.

I have never been charged any import duty on beans from Sweet Maria's to here in the UK. We also have many excellent suppliers here in the UK, one I use all of the time is HasBean :

Who also just happens to be the main man for the LaSpaziale S1 VII here in the UK. :D :D :D

Thanks Eric that's great news and yes - if I haven't found a distributor in Poland I would surely buy from Hasbean.
He's the Hottop guy also, so I will probably buy from him hopefully in near future.

No problem Pawel, Steve at Hasbean is really helpful and goes the extra mile for his customers. Highly Recommended. :D
