Topic: yemen defect false alarm / Re: +are these defects? (3 msgs / 203 lines)
1) From: Sweet Maria's Coffee
Hi Bob,
You sure about that? Did your zoologist friend say anything in particular?
The second part of your statement sounds less scientific is why I ask.
This came up before and was quickly cleared up by a dentist on the 
list. Maybe someone could provide the detail we need on what sounds 
like a false alarm.
We have yet to find anything except the odd broken bean or corn 
kernel in the Yemen coffee, confirmed by the folks who do the sorting 
and packing here.
I did find a white bean that crumbled in my hands just now, a broken. 
I _guess_ it might look like a tooth except a tooth has a root.
Best,
Derek & Sweet Maria's

Ya know, I have to get a digital camera. Next time I encounter

from the rodentia family. I'm a mathematical physicist, not a biologist! 
I had some paleontology classes, and to me, the thing looked like an 
animal tooth.
I encounter rocks and some "organic matter", probably sticks, about 
every third pound from the three Yemens.
To me, this is no big deal. I used to get Yemen coffee "straight from 
the dock" when my parents lived in Saudi Arabia. Some of the stuff I had 
to cull was creepy, aside from the corn, rocks, sticks, popcorn (!) and 
stuff.
You guys do a hell of job sorting the Yemens. Keep up the good work.

HI All,
 
I work for a company that makes sorting equipment for products like =
coffee, corn, etc. Most small farms would never be able to afford the =
price of the equipment. It takes a lot of tons of product to justify the =
expense. Large co-ops can, but the small guy would have it tough. We do =
see a lot of rodent teeth and such in the reject bucket when running =
products.
