1. What is Naivo’s minimum order quantity for raw coffee beans?
We have a small minimum order quantity requirement of 5kg. In the case of international coffee beans that are of very high value, we can offer as low as 2kg. Our goal is to support roasting operations of all sizes from home roasters to small-batch specialty coffee roasters to large commercial roasters.
2. What is the shelf life of unroasted coffee beans?
Most lots of coffee are best roasted within one year of the harvest date.

However, we recommend that coffees are roasted within one year after harvest date for best results.
