When coffee is exported from the different areas, what do the bags weigh?  I
know they are different in different countries, but is the a guide somewhere
that can show me this?

I don't know about a guide, but the average bag is around 140 pounds.

Coffee can arrive in 70Kg bags   ~154lb
Coffee can arrive in 60Kg Bags  ~132lb
Kind of depends who is shipping and what is normal.
Buying a shipment of coffee usually includes a pallet fee.  The first bag of
coffee costs a lot to ship.  THe second bag costs an increment over first.
If you were wholesaling coffee, you can save a lot by purchasing a pallet...

Also we are the only State with a Royal Palace. There is The Kingdom of 
Callaway in Missouri but alas no palace.

6) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
The bag weighs roughly between 1 Lb and 2.2 Lbs. I have never seen a 
bag less than a pound, and most are about 1.75 Lbs. Some sisal bags 
with a dense weave are in the upper range.
Wasn't that the question?

Well there you have it!  What does a coffee bag cost anyway?
You can actually buy bags from Tom - and he'll also put coffee beans inside
too!  For a price!

In Hawaii there are always extra pallets around because so much stuff is 
shipped in.  People leave them at transfer stations, etc.  You just need 
to know someone who will help get you a good used pallet.
