Subject: New Zealand coffee market
 

Hi,

I'm looking into business importing premium brand coffee into New Zealand and I am trying to understand the local market. In Europe, it is customary for the distributer to provide and service the espresso machine provided the end user (i.e. a coffee place) sells enough coffee. When the end user decides to switch to another distributer, the old one takes its machine and new one brings its own. Is the system in New Zealand similar, or do the coffee shop owners actually own their own espresso machines?


Thanks and best wishes,

Nace

It works this way in Italy, but I never think this is good.  In Italy, they can always get good beans and almost never change the supplier.  But in China and most other countries, the coffee bean suppliers are hardly good enough so  people may have to transfer from this supplier to another from time to time.  This is not good  for both sides.
Eventially, the cost of the machine is from the difference between the cost and the price of the beans.  If one can afford the cost of the machine, better to buy it.  The problem is only to pay it at once or in a long period.  You can always get loan, any way.

New Zealand has so many great coffee roasters why would you want to import coffee into NZ.  Most Cafes have free on loan machines provided to them from their (usually Local & Fresh coffee supplier)  Although when I owned a Cafe I had my own machine and roasted my own coffee.
