The merchandise is produced from Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, which are roasted, and ground. The coffee is then extracted, decanted, and filtered. The product is packaged in drums of a net weight of 195 kilograms, which are first cooled and then frozen. The merchandise will be used in the manufacture of a ready to use liquid coffee.

The applicable subheading for the frozen coffee extract will be 2101.11.2949, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Extracts, essences and concentrates of coffee, and preparations with a basis of these extracts, essences or concentrates or with a basis of coffee: extracts, essences and concentratesotherother.
