"...the warehouses in Kenya, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, etc. are probably just as
hot as a UPS truck
is on a summer's day."
Of course you are right, Dan. However, green beans can be stored for many
months, even years, and are sometime even "aged" in hot, humid weather.
Roasted beans last just days -- orders of magnitude shorter period as
compared to green beans. Thus, I think that roasted coffee beans are more
affected by hot temperatures during shipping, too. I am not sure -- anyone
knows?
Anyone has some experience with shipping in insulated packages -- with dry
ice, etc?
