I will be staying on base while there.  My son is a Lieutenent in charge =
of radiological safety for the whole area and does a lot of traveling =
from Guam to Tokeo to Korea and all over where there are military =
mammograms, x-ray machines, etc to calibrate and monitor them.
We will be there all of Feb. and Mar. so will have plenty of time to =
shop and even have my son pick up stuff for coffee roasting if not on =
Okinawa.
As I mentioned, any suggestions appreciated.

I don' think customs will object.  I am the only coffee drinker in the =
family and figure three pounds will do me two months.  If they do balk =
at that amount I guess I will be stuck with Millstone from the =
commissary.  Hey, I wonder if Tom Ships to FPO/APO addresses.  I could =
just order some beans and have shipped to my son.  That would save me =
carrying beans in my luggage!  He would have to fill out a customs form =
but I could have my son who works in Berkley fill out one and take it to =
him.  Better still my son could pick up the coffee and do the mailing.  =
I know I am rambling but just thinking as I type.

He does in fact - I just purchased from him a few days back...  I have
also had a TON of coffee sent here w/o issue - my experience with Japan
was that it was less restrictive then it is coming to a combat zone!
 
You could always send yourself the coffee as a gift and only deal with a
USPS customs agent...make it a gift and no $$  
 
That would be a lot easier in my opinion.

I would get and take along a Zass hand mill instead of the 
blade.  Aside from that, I don't think (but don't know) of anything 
that would be easier or better to get there.
