Here's a link you may find interesting from today's 
Houston Chronicle.  It details the problems with today's coffee 
market:

Aye Cap'ain, he's gone back into the cloaking mode - but he dropped this
URL.
Beam me down Scotty!   Set the transporter to Houston and close to
Bibiano Mendoza!
It's good to see that the common citizen (read that - doesn't roast) is
becoming more aware of the plight of good people like Bibiano.   This
months issue of  Fresh Cup and The Coffee Journal both carry some sad
stories as well.   I think the answer lies in more personal
relationships between the mass roasters and the farmers needs to occur. 
Us 300# a year folks aren't going to do much financially to help that. 
But we can sure promote it when and where ever we can.   Drop a note to
the Houston Chronicle thanking them for the article for starters!
