Weasel coffee not allowed in by Australian Quarantine

Posted by sanpedro on 3/2/2010 at 19:07

We have just got back from Vietnam and had our package of Weasel Coffee confiscated at quarantine when we declared it on arrival in Australia. Just thought I would let people know as this is a recent change that occurred on 15 Jan 2010 and isn't on the AQIS factsheets they only mention raw or green coffee beans.

Heres the details:

Hi sanpedro,

Thanks for the report -- what a bummer -- that coffee is superb.
