2) From: Leo Zick
Wow, some history!!
If I remember correctly, all of the nex's that ive been to have a mcdonalds,
with coffee (ok, not the best), and some had small coffee shops. In italy,
there are kiosks operated by the locals serving fresh espresso. (well,
that's a relative term)
It sounds like they were fresh roasting for a while, but that brings up some
questions:
1. 'roasting' themselves doesn't allow the navy to solicit bids from
businesses (ie, small biz) in providing a large scale service. So, 2. id be
a bit daunted to see a bunch of guys who have minimal rest as it is, to be
standing outside a BEQ with a BBQ roasting coffee in what little spare time
they may have.  Is that much time available for you guys?
