Topic: Little pellets in bag (7 msgs / 75 lines)
1) From: Jonathan Parungao
After I empty out the greens from the bag, I notice small pellets.  What are
they?  Are they just little bits of the greens that have chipped off?   They
are tiny and cylindrical looking.

if these pellets are brown, they probably are rat / mouse turds....  
sounds like you got some kopi luwak on the cheap there !!
seriously though, they could be just about anything, id have to see them 
to even venture a guess what they might be.

Hi Jonathan,
    From what I have read on the internet so far those are most likely =
broken off embryos from the beans. Since the green beans are seeds these
embryos are often intact after the processing. They are located at one =
of the seed lengthwise, near the crease. So says Sweet Maria's website =
the Growing Coffea Arabica at home page. It's similar to that little =
piece at the
ends of peanuts that often falls off. They are not bug or rodent =

I do not have any pets.  These pellets are very very small.  About as thick
as a standard staple, and a mm or so long.  These are already in the bags of
green beans.

Have you noticed any miniature rabbits around your house?
