Hoping someone can give me direction on this, I’ve searched to the best of my abilities with no luck , and may have possibly missed it. What are the regulations with brewing coffee at home to then sell outside the home? Only things taking place within the home would be the brewing of the coffee an it being put into a container.
I’d recommend checking with your local ag dept. Because it’s generally low-risk, sometimes there are special rules that allow someone to sell home-brewed coffee, or even coffee that’s brewed on-site (like at a market). This likely would not fall under the regulations for PA’s limited food establishments. If the ag dept requires a permit to do this, it may be more simple than the one for a full food establishment.
Hi! Thx I’ve found this thread before starting my old idea. As an old-school brewer and latte fan, I’ve been wanting to open a little coffee shop. Also purchased some additional latte stuff – Nespresso machines, new grinder etc. I never thought about it from the standpoint of the law, so I’m going to get to know everything, and I’m going to write down the results asap. Cheers Frank
