This is our current understanding of what a few countries charge to import a single 9Barista espresso machine. We can’t guarantee the accuracy of this information.

We use the customs commodity code of “8210000000” for our espresso machines. You will need this to estimate customs charges. In many countries this commodity code attracts no import duties whatsoever.

Country specific regulations

We have successfully shipped 9Barista machines to over 25 countries. We’ve learned that some countries have some creative customs rules that can cause problems which we’ve noted below. However, every country has their own customs rules and regulations and we can’t keep track of them all – so please check that with your local customs agency before you place an order.


We can ship 9Barista machines to mainland China. However, if you wish to order more than one machine at at time, please contact us first. It appears that Chinese customs does not allow the shipment of more than one “item” to personal recipients in mainland China. We would need to send each machine separately.
This restriction does not apply (yet?) to Hong Kong.


We have successfully shipped machines to Russia. But occasionally there are issues with customs. It appears that there are some occasionally enforced rules around personal imports that can block imports. It may be safer to import as a corporation, rather than an individual.
