Scott Reed of Royal Coffee (wholesalers) talked to us about the challenges of sourcing and importing coffee. Apparently it can sometimes be a challenge just to get a container to use: "All the containers in the world are somewhere between Shanghai and Walmart..." He also talked about issues such as how long coffee can sometimes sit in the hold of a ship, the use of climate-controlled containers, what happens when he receives a shipment of coffee that has spoiled en route etc.
