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. Aaron
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Hi Jonathan, From what I have read on the internet so far those are most likely = the 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 = end of the seed lengthwise, near the crease. So says Sweet Maria's website = on 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 = droppings.

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.
