Topic: Stoned in Iraq (4 msgs / 96 lines)
1) From: Sean Cary
No, not like Vietnam Apocalypse Now stoned...they drug test us.
(believe it or not there are folks who manage to find pot here on the
street from vendors...and they get caught)
Well, after two years of doing the home roasted coffee thing- finally
hit a stone...  Had tough time grinding this morning in the Zass
Turkish.  So I kinda shook the beans since I couldn't see anything,
then when I got to the bottom, sure enough a 1/4 flat stone was all
that was left.  Have to take apart the grinder today and ensure I
didn't screw the burr up on it too badly.
Bean was a Honduran FTO San Marcos...
Oh well - at least it wasn't my new/used Rocky when I get home...

Almost to the 30's....time has slowed down, but our replacements start
flowing in the next few weeks and then I hope it will go SMOKING by...

Iraqi jail?  Got a cell phone in there?
Afghanistan's big cash crop is, not coffee, but something that grows easier
and faster... to which other farmers in the coffee growing regions switch
when Big Coffee grinds them down to the basic cost of production and below.
They have to keep producing, just because we really, really want their
coffee at our price. Not! -ro
