Topic: vacuum destoners (2 msgs / 52 lines)
1) From: Kevin DuPre
Ed,
I'm not sure, but I haven't gotten a stone from Tom
and Maria yet.  In talking to a pro roaster I was
considering for proposed coffee bar (which I've since
abandoned), he showed me the stuff he vacuumed out of
roasts he's processed.  Although the minimal amount of
things he's vacuumed (less than 1 canning jar in 8
years of roasts) speaks highly of his brokers' ability
to select top grade product, I've seen everything in
there from stones, to glass, to staples, screws,
nails, pieces of metal which look like they fell off
of a rusty fender (and they probably did!).  I've read
somewhere that there are areas of the world where dry
processing occurs, they actually let cars driving over
rural roads remove the dried fruit off of the beans,
which are then gathered up, sifted and bagged for
shipment.
Imagine the hell such objects would play on a set of
grinding burrs!

Don't forget, we buy Grade 5 Specialty Coffee from Tom.  Your roaster friend
may be using the typical Grade 2 and 3 commodity beans.  Contaminants is one
of the differences in the grades.
