Topic: Counterfeit Antigua Coffee! (2 msgs / 36 lines)
1) From: Justin Marquez
From an online Reuters article:
"Some 100,000 60-kg bags of coffee were sold as Antigua last year --
about double the 50,000 bags produced in the area around the famous
Spanish colonial tourist town, APCA said. "

2) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
Yep - its a big problem. Coffee from Acatenango, Fraijanes, etc sold 
as Antigua. Actually, coffee from Honduras is smuggled in and sold as 
Antigua! That's why you have to know your source, basically, have 
traceability with each lot.
