Topic: You got corn in my coffee! (4 msgs / 89 lines)
1) From: Kevin Creason
So far I have found two giant dried corn kernels in my Honduras
organic Daniel O. microlot. I popped one (not in the roaster) but it
didn't puff out much confirming it definitely wasn't of the popcorn
variety. They are very large and rectangular kernels.
It's amusing, but I'd be way more interested in hearing about the
facility and process just to hear how I got corn in my coffee. Tom?
Any insights?

HA! I received a free huge kernel in a batch once but I don't remember what
it came with. It's in my jar of extra freebies that come with my coffee as a
souvenir.

I got a bean-shaped rock one time.  Went through the roaster without me 
noticing it.  It came out t same color and shape as a bean.  My grinder 
noticed it, though.  Came to a screeching halt.

On occasion I see corn in the beans, once a dried pea. 
Considering we get the coffee from places drying multitudes of 
agricultural products, it's a wonder we don't see more!
Watch your Sumatran beans, they are well known to hide little 
gray stones as the beans often are dried on the ground. Your 
grinder will thank you.
