Hello everyone how are you doing? I am looking at starting an Espresso supply and coffee supply drop shipping company through our online store. I was looking here first to gauge interest for those that already are using dropshippers. We will also be working with espresso machines and other types of high end coffee makers. I look forward to hearing from everyone.

    I think it's hard ( not impossible ) to determine a coffee store dropshipper when you don't even state your target market for this store. B2B or B2C? Either way these two forums might be able to help point you in the right direction to finding a supplier :

    Good luck with your store.

    Thanks for responding. I took a second to reread my post and I would like to apologize to everyone, I was submitting it from my phone, and was not very clear in the posting.

    I currently have a roasting company and have been in business for over 3 years. We have grown steadily and branched into selling coffee supplies and espresso accessories about a year and a half ago. One of the biggest problems that we ran into when first starting to sell was that there was no drop shipping companies that handled the higher end names for coffee gear. We would like to change that.

    I am going to be beefing up my inventory, and are offering to do dropshipping for those that may be interested in selling espresso and coffee gear. I am not sure that anyone here is doing it, and if they are, what items they are looking for. I am currently completing the website and will have it online within the next 6 weeks, but wanted to see if anyone was interested, and if so, any particular products they would like to sell.

    It will only be for supplies, machines, and grinders. We will not be drop shipping or private labeling our own coffee. We are a higher end roaster, so the margin would not be good for anyone looking to get into that side of it. If anyone is interested let me know.

    ***Thanks sweetcrab, I really didn't realize how vague the posting sounded.

      Yes, there is a need, especially for the higher end coffee equipment such as Burr Grinders, Espresso Machines and even Drip Machines. Krups won't dropship, and Cuisinart really only does it for Amazon and even finding a Bunn Dropshipper is getting harder these days leaving many with Hamilton Beach which, let's face it, is not really what we want. If you can also offer Presses and Pour Overs to ship that would be great. Biggest issue always will be shipping. PM me and we can discuss.

    javarog: What types of items are you looking for?

    Barley 27: Besides semi-automatic machines what else would you be looking for?

    We are working to put together the site now and work on the product list, and the policies for how it will work. Feel free to PM me at anytime with any questions that you have. I appreciate your interest and want to work this out so that we can all get the products that we need at the margins that makes everyone successful.

      This sounds like a really awesome idea.

      I'll make sure to put the word out to any Solid Commerce sellers (we're an eCommerce software platform, designed to help multi-channel online sellers basically manage everything from a single interface) and see who's looking for a good coffee gear drop-shipper.

      Based on OnlineStoreHelp's comment, it seems like you're poised to do some really great work.

      Good luck!!

          N_touch,

          How may I go about contacting you for further information on the above mentioned drop shipping merchandise? I have developed a coffee, tea website and am looking for coffee products to add.

          Thanks!

    Well, drop shipping is the best one by which you can sell third party products. For a better drop shipping, you can make a conversation with a third party who sell the products and easily deal with them.
