Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

When I was a young boy, my grandfather gave me my start in fresh roasted and fresh brewed coffee.

Just down the road and accross the railroad track was a little Amish grocery that sold green coffee beans from a wooden barrel. Grand pap would buy a scoop at a time for 10 cents and we would head over the tracks to make coffee. We would sit and talk while he cooked the beans in a rusty old iron skillet on top of a little pot bellied stove. As I recall it took a long time to cook. When the beans cooled he smashed them in a clean sock with a large rawhide mallet. He then tied a knot in the sock and we would head to the spring to get fresh spring water. On the way to the spring we crossed a lane made of fine limestone. Papy always untied the sock bent down to get a pinch of limestone powder and tossed it in the sock. He said it made the coffee taste like it was made with good well water Grin When we got to the spring he diped his coffee pan in the tile, pulled it out, and pinched out any debris or bugs. He said it was bad luck to get the water from the stream that poured out of the crack in rock face, and rather pinch the bugs out than have bad luck all day. We went back to the stove, he put the pan on the top of the stove, tossed in the coffee and limestone sock filter, waited till the coffee turned brown as molasses, poured it in a nice cup, then enjoyed the rest of his day......

Fine equipment like that is hard to find today! s:8
