Topic: Bringing Homeroast into Mexico (5 msgs / 120 lines)
1) From: Robert Robertson
Don't know how to participate in this forum, so if it wrong, sorry.  I work
in Texas and my family lives in Monterrey, Mexico.  So I cross back and
forth on a regular basis.  Been checked by customs a thousand times.  Never
had a problem bringing in roasted beans, vacuum-packed or otherwise.  They
ask what is this and I say homemade coffee.  And I am on my way.  No big
deal.  Just don't bring in a gun with the coffee.  Have a great wedding.
Congratulations.

Perfect way to respond.   I've travelled to europe many times with coffee  
and no problems either.
Mike's suggestion of grinding and vacuum packing is a really good one.   
Sometimes when camping, i will grind really fine and then put in and a  
couple of heaping teaspoons of coffee in a cup and then dump 10-12 oz of  
boiling water over it stir let settle, stir again, let settle and then drink  
or slow pour into another cup if you don't want the grounds at the bottom of  
the cup.  No filters to carry, no pots, just coffee.

Thanks so much to Peter & Robert (and welcome to Robert, also)!
It's terrific hearing that so many people have successfully brought coffee
to various destinations. I now plan to bring enough so that others in our
wedding party can share a decent cup. I'll find the coffee-lovers amongst
us, haha!
Really getting both excited & stressed out about our upcoming trip. Right
now I'm trying to locate someone to take care of my two dogs - we thought
one of my daughter's friends (who isn't going to the wedding) was going to
dog sit for us, but that didn't pan out. Believe me, it is NOT easy to
leave my two sweeties in the care of someone else!
Going to end my usual long ramblings - hurt my arms & shoulders about a wk
ago when I tried to be superwoman & carried four heavy bundles from our
local city center for a good 20 -25 min walk. Hurts to type..
[Stupid, stupid, stupid! (but I* am* healing, albeit slow...)]

*sigh* With our particular dysfunction, it's a wonder you're doing as well as you are. Gentle (very gentle) hugs.

Thank you so much, Scot. (Getting off topic here) Guess what? My son just
went to my rheumatologist & it looks like he might have the same disorder.
At least he's getting closer to an answer to all the pain he's experiencing.
