Hello Carolyn
I live in China and have ordered green beans from Sweet Marias on several
occasions over the past few years. SM did say that they have had problems in
the past and were therefore a litlle reluctant to ship given the issues they
had experiened but I was happy to take the risk and haven't had any
problems so far. Delivey time is usually a week to10 days, although once
something got held up for about 6 weeks.
As for bringing coffee in yourself, it may be technically breaking some rule
to but even in the unilikely event that your sister's luggage were searched,
I doubt she would have any problems. Pornography or Free Tibet T-shirts,
yes, but green coffee beans, no. At the very worst, they'd be confiscated.
Of course, TIC (this is China) so official rules and reality may be
different and changing but this is not something I would worry about.
And I geatly enjoy my daily cup of coffee which is far better than anything
that you can buy at any coffee shop.
Regards
John

My experience with Vietnam coffee has been far different than most others
admit. I suspect I got a batch of Highlands Arabica, with an exquisite
floral bouquet. My first roast was the perfect golden storm. Then I couldn't
believe what I was reading. Months later, the roasted beans smelled like
burnt rubber. Bummer.
The depredations I read must have been referring to some other origin- maybe
Uncle Ho. Been on continent a few times, only S. Korea was an unlikely
country of coffee origin.
I would not be surprised in the least to see the resourceful Koreans build
irrigated greenhouses and grow their own coffee- they'll practically take
out a mortgage to visit their favorite coffee house. [Not to be confused
with the coffee house to which the Taegu ARTCC- Air Route Traffic Control
Center- guys introduced us.]
Right- that's off topic, nothing to do with coffee. It was their term. I'd
go back to try the beer again. It could only improve.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
