    From what I understand there is no limit on coffee brought back from Jamaica.

    No limit, up to commercial exclusions; in other words, there comes a point when it becomes obvious that you're not dabbling in coffee for personal consumption, but rather operating as an importer... two different things.

    There are also limits to the amount you can carry before being subject to a duty tax, but that isn't a quantity thing... its a dollar amount. Check the limitations and forms at www.cbt.gov .

    We were told 10 lbs per person was the limit. We brought back 20 lbs and customs raised their eyebrow at us. My SIL just brought back 40 lbs for us, but I'm not sure if customs said anything or if they split the coffee up between the 14 people who went on the trip. Either way it means we have enough coffee to last the rest of the year while drinking it daily.

    $800.00 dollars in merchandise per the customs declaration form. At $18.00 per 1 lb bag that equals roughly 40 lbs. of coffee.... Per person...

    Thanks everyone. Just wanted to make sure we could bring some back for a few family members. Sounds like we should be in the clear by far

    Anytime you bring back large amounts of something, just let the customs agents know that it isn't for resale just personal use.
