Topic: Jute Coffee Bag Question (3 msgs / 67 lines)
1) From: Brian Jenkin
Greetings,
To store all of my green coffee I recently purchased a bunch of nice,
good quality, burlap/jute bags.  Any recommendations from the group as
to how to ensure that I make them food grade?  That is, should I wash
them and if so, how?
Thanks,
Brian

Brian, I don't think you need to do anything to the bags. Load 'em up, 
brother! I think you're fine. Were the bags sold as food bags?

You should heat them to 230 F, min., for not less than 3 minutes to
eradicate the bacteria, mites and small insects that can harm the bean mass
when storing green coffee for an extended period.

containers for transportation purposes, not long term storage. The
environment of the el-Ropo bags = the beans' environment over time.
