Besides being allergic to the stuff, I live in Seattle where one would be a complete idiot to try and get into the business this ln the game. There is a one block area near my house that we at one time counted 16 coffee places in.

There is a guy here who works for a coffee company but he isn't a coffee shop guy. He likely can answer, or find the answer, to your coffee quest.

I work in the Kona Coffee industry. Not in a coffee shop but I would be happy to try and answer any questions. At work right now as a matter of fact. Coffee cup steaming with some fresh dark roast.

Here is the question, why can't coffee be blue?
Message: Posted by: Josh the Superfluous (Sep 16, 2007 09:56PM)
Because you can't follow your order with "...like my men".

Yeah, I couldn't help but laugh when my aunt said she was going to open one - although she lives on the other side of the country...

I don't know the punchline to that joke, but I can direct you towards Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee...

Are you growing the Turkish figs, or the black mission figs? Of course you know I was alluding to figs.
Message: Posted by: Barry Gitelson (Sep 21, 2007 04:03PM)
Green figs. don't know if they are Turkish or not but the plant is huge and the birds get more of the fruit than I do. Of course I knew that was what you were thinking .... but the "no comment" is pretty good too....LOL.

If my memory serves me correctly of the Turkish figs there are green, and white colored figs.

You lucky ducky.
