Topic: Canada Goose coffee (9 msgs / 193 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
The news is full of Kopi Luwak again. Now we all  know it's iffy, at 
best, but still, it's that time of year.
I came in contact with a much more unusual bean this afternoon. It was a 
bright sunny day, so I decided to move my roaster set-up out of my 
garage (its winter home) and into my yard. The coffee of the day was a 
lovely Kenyan, and I was one happy coffee gal. I held my heat gun and 
watched the beans go brown in my bread machine. Ahhh, life...
I dumped the beans in into the cooling basket over my fan. Just as I did 
so, I heard a honk...honk...honk.. and suddenly my hair and the beans 
were both blessed with, you guessed it, goose sh!t.
I showered and the beans hit the garbage. I thought about selling them 
to the yuppies next door, but decided that as I had only a pound or so, 
I wouldn't want to get their hopes up for more.

In the words of my teenager  Gross.  There has to be a marking angle there
though:  Canadian Coffee, Goose Greens, Honker Homeroast....
I feel for you.  Craping on fresh roasted coffee has to be a major sin of
some sort

I'm thinking an immediate reciprocation with bird shot would have been
in order ...
... it's what's for dinner.

You couldn't save the beans that hadn't been touched?  Didn't want to invoke
the 5 second rule? :)

Oh, Vicki, I feel for you! Couple of years ago, I was coming down the  
rear deck stairs and got splatted by a seagull right on the shoulder  
of my REI Gore-Tex parka. Yecch.  On the one hand, the white guano was  
surrounded by a lovely lavender; OTOH, it stank sort of like dead  
coleslaw--I washed the dang jacket three times--for over two weeks.   
The gull's aim was not quite good enough to get my hair.
You definitely dropped the ball on the beans, though. Shoulda called  
in a TV news crew and charged $200+/lb.

Oh mannn...  In these parts, those birds qualify as pests.  There vast 
numbers those vegetation to poop converters around here.  I suppose you 
found a way to turn your roasted coffee back to "greens."  Ugh.  At a place 
I used to work, they would nest in the rock hillside by the office entrance. 
Defensive critters!  They'd come after you as you entered the building. 
Turn your back on them and they'd sneak up and chomp on your calves.  We 
learned that the best thing to do pretend to be a bigger goose than they. 
Spread your arms out, fake a honk and rush 'em.  Looked pretty silly, but it 
worked.  They scattered pretty quickly in the face of a Large Human Goose. 
We had our share of "wildlife issues."  The redwing blackbirds would sit on 
your car mirrors and attack that other bird in the mirror, to the point of 
drawing blood!  We had to put paper bags over the mirrors or we'd find a 
mess on our cars at the end of the day.

You can put a plastic coyote in the area and they won't congregate.
That assumes you have coyotes nearby, so they can be afraid of them ;)
 That's what they do around here.

And I thought there were no stupider creatures on the face of the  
earth than turkeys (which will stick their heads in knotholes and then  
drown if it starts to rain and you don't yank them away).
