Fresh coffee anyone?


Its time to get the donkey out with burlap sacks, and pick the beans just like Juan Valdez.



Arabica "beans". Nothing less. No Brazilian commercial types either. Grew the tree from a "seed" bean 5 yrs ago.

Anyway, kinda reddish Christmasy feel/look to it- coincidentally they ripen during Christmas.

Noquacks.

Youre darn right, Mike. Hey, after nurturing it for 5 yrs or so, yeah- Im gonna pick them and load up the beans onto the sacs on the donkey, then you have to remove the pulp- kinda time consuming, then dry them for a few days, then toast them carefully in the toaster oven. Its my 1st time. Wish me luck.

Oh, on the cold nights, even here in FL, (yes, its too cold in FL for coffee usually), I have to bring the poted tree inside the garage, or it will die. Cant survive below about 45 deg F.........

I don't think I would be concerned what the "Incas", Aztecs", "Mayans" ...
have to say about the year 2012.
Most of them are not here!
We'll see!

Happy New Year!

(Jim - I didn't know, we could do that around here - "coffee"!)

Thanks very much guys for the compliments and advice about preparing for the end of the world, as the Maya predicted.

Heres another picture of today- picked about only 1/3 of the tree's production:

Gonna stock up on the Coffee and chocolate (cocoa bean)- they have by nature, a "pulp" that supposed to resist nuclear radiation, just in case.
