(Unaudited)
June 30th , 2016
 
 
1.  BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited financial statements as reported in the annual report on Form 10-K have been omitted.
 
Going Concern

The Company has had recurring losses, large accumulated deficits, is dependent on the shareholder to provide additional funding for operating expenses and has no recurring revenues. These items raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

3.  RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
 
During February 2015, the Company issued a secured convertible promissory note in the sum of $600,000 to Masateru Higashida, the Company's major shareholder.  Interest calculated at the annual rate of zero percent (0%) for the period until April 2016.  During March 2016, the Company and Masateru Higashida decided to extend the repayment date to March 31, 2017 so that company has more funds for production and marketing to fulfill customers' requirements, which in the best interest of the Corporation and its shareholders. The annual rate of repayment at an interest rate of one percent (1%) for the period until March 31, 2017. During nine months ended, the company accrued interest of $1,496 relating to this related party note.
 
If the outstanding principle and all accrued and unpaid interest on the debt hereof (the "Debt") is not repaid by the Company in full by the Repayment Date, the Debt or any portion thereof may be converted at the option of the Holder, upon written notice to the Company at any time after the Repayment Date, into that number of shares of the Company's Common Stock equal to the Debt or that portion thereof that the Holder elects to convert, divided by price per share of $0.51. This note shall by cancelled on the date of conversion of the entirety of the Debt.
 
During March 2016, the Company borrowed the sum of $100,000 short-term loan (the "Far East Loan") from Far East Holdings ("Far East" [aka NuZee Japan]) to be repaid on or before September 30, 2016 at an interest rate of one percent (1%). During the nine months ended, the company accrued interest of $148. The Company paid back $55,000 of this short-term loan during the period.
 
The $600,000 convertible promissory note payable and $100,000 short-term loan are related party transactions since Masateru Higashida is the Company's major shareholder and he holds 100% ownership of From East Holdings [aka NuZee Co., Ltd].

Plan of Operations
 
Short Term Goals (12 Months)
 
O ver the next 6 months, the Company's growth plans include continuing efforts to:
 
   Leverage our network of potential customers that we have been introduced to during our extensive trade show campaign.
Participating in trade shows and conferences has been a huge success for the company so far.  At each trade show there are between 2,000 and 10,000 attendees/exhibitors depending on its size – which gives the company ample opportunity to meet, talk and most importantly educate the consumer on the benefits of our product as well as the proper usage and applications.
 
   Fulfill the current demand of our current customer base and complete transactions with customers that have expressed a strong interest in our company and brands.
With recent development of new innovative products, we have good reason to reach back out to our current and new customers to gain more distribution points.
 
   Maximize the effectiveness of our current distributors by implementing sales and marketing road-map's.
Currently, we are working closely with KeHE & are able to meet with hundreds of sales reps and buyers for the grocery channel across the US at Table Top events.

   Work with our chosen brokers to build new relationships and strengthen existing relationships.
By working with a broker who has a strong connectivity to retailers, it ensures that a unique and appropriate strategy is developed and executed with speed and precision for our brand.  In addition, the broker will be able to guide us in which strategies and tactics will work at each specific retailer, this is vital to the growth of a brand. Additionally, a retailer's strategy and tactics can change over time and knowing this in real time is critical to success.
 
   Continue to increase the awareness for Coffee Blenders brand and products by submitting articles to Coffee Roasters magazines as well as continually submit blogs/content to several social media platforms
Through participating in all of the tradeshows in 2016, we were able to create relationships with journalists and magazine owners who will often post articles and product reviews in their publication for free.  With the coffee industry being as large as it is, there are numerous coffee magazines and website out there and even more eyes reading the content produced by trusted sources.
 
 
 
We have retained and expanded our sales and marketing team who have continuously contributed to our network of US and international channels as such seeding our product and maintaining relationships is a top priority.  We have developed working relationships with key online and national distributors who serve the coffee and single-serve pod consumers.  We are also expanding our SKU line with cold brew and whole bean, to meet the wants and needs of all consumers.  We plan to accelerate our traction by continuing to work with manufacturer representatives with food and beverage experience.
 
We are currently entered into several different channels for distribution and are planning to expand into a few more channels in 2017.  Our current and forecasted company directed channels include;
Direct – coffeeblenders.com shopping via search and digital marketing
E-commerce affiliates (Amazon Exclusives, Groupon, Jet.com)
Select health and wellness retailers
Key mass/grocery retailers – Kroger, HEB, Safeway, Whole Foods
Club/Other – Sam's Club
Outdoor retailer locations (such as REI/ Bass Pro Shops)
Co-Packing with other coffee roasters on our pour-over drip cup
 
If we are unable to receive funding our plans will be dramatically and negatively impacted such that we will prioritize go to market strategies based on reduced operations and available capital.
 
Long Term Goals (Five Years)
 
The Company believes that there will be significant expansion opportunities in existing markets through new products as well as in new regions outside of the United States in a combination of market development and product licensing.
 
The Company believes that our limited resources may pose a challenge to our expansion goals and therefore anticipates that it may require additional capital in future years to fund expansion. There can be no assurance that our expansion strategy will be accretive to our earnings within a reasonable period of time. However, the Company believes that it can improve its operational efficiencies and reduce the need for new capital by carefully managing the business based on the following economic fundamentals within accretive margin and cost contribution modeling.
 
Results of Operations  
 
For the three months ended June 30, 2016, we generated net losses of $324,820. This loss was attributed to $398,388 of operating expenses. Compared with period end June 30, 2015, the overall net loss decreased by $38,141. The change on net loss are mostly contributed by increasing in revenue and good performance of sales.
 
From April 1, 2016 to June 30, 2016, we earned gross profit of $63,723 from sales of our products. The gross profit earned during same period of 2015 was $6,806. There has been more than nine times increase in earned gross profit. This increase was mainly caused by the increase of sales revenue, which are five times compared with the same period last year.
 
Compared with nine months ended June 30 th 2016 and 2015, revenue increased almost 3 times to $231,682 compared to $136,268 from last year. At the same time, the cost of goods sold only doubled, which lead to a much higher gross profit this year of $99,797 compared to $22,452. The operating expenses still high this year and most of expenses related to professional fees, marketing (tradeshows and advertisements) as well as production development.
 
We are presently in the marketing phase of our new product platform for functional beverages and we can provide no assurance that we will be able to attain profitability.
 
We expect sales in the rest of 2016 from our new products through a combination of direct to consumer through our website portal, product awareness as well as through affiliate online stores, retailers and distributors.
 
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
As of September 30, 2015 we had a cash balance of $107,678 and $17,047 at June 30, 2016. During this quarter, company raised $777,001 fund from issuing common stocks which is almost two times the amount company raised by period ended September 30, 2015. The cash flow is lower this quarter since company paid back $55,000 short loan and purchased raw materials for production based on coming purchase orders as well as machine depreciation since company purchased a new machine last year. Compared with this quarter, Company invested $157,763 on inventories to ensure have enough finished goods in warehouse for future selling.
 
Total assets decreased by 22.27 % from $541,282 at September 30, 2015 to $420,647at June 30, 2016
 
As of June 30, 2016 we had current liabilities of $705,615 and $666,129 at September 30, 2015. There has no significant increase as last quarter since we paid back most of our short-term loan which due on the end of this fiscal year.
 
Our current ratio decreased from 52% in September 30, 2015 to 36 % as of June 30, 2016.
 
Our auditor has indicated that there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern as a result of our lack of significant revenues, and if we are unable to generate significant revenue or secure financing, we may be required to cease or curtail our operations.  Our financial statements do not include adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
 
Our current cash balance as of June 30, 2016 is not sufficient to fund our operations for the next twelve months. Therefore, the Company intends to engage in additional financing through the sale of equity securities.
 
Item 3.       Quantitative and Qua litative Disclosures About Market Risk.
 
We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.
 
Item 4.       Controls and Pro cedures
 
As of the end of the period covered by this Report, the Company's President, and principal financial officer (the "Certifying Officer"), evaluated the effectiveness of the Company's "disclosure controls and procedures," as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Based on that evaluation, the officer concluded that, as of the date of the evaluation, the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed in the Company's periodic filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
The Certifying Officer has also indicated that there were no changes in internal controls over financial reporting during the Company's last fiscal quarter, and no significant changes in our internal controls or other factors that could significantly affect such controls subsequent to the date of their evaluation and there were no corrective actions with regard to significant deficiencies and material weaknesses.
 
Our management, including the Certifying Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls or our internal controls will prevent all errors and fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. In addition, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people or by management override of the control. The design of any systems of controls   also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Because of these inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements Due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
