    Hang on a minute, still got the tongue firmly planted in the right cheek..... ahhh, thats better ;)

    I came across this by accident actually, thought it was quite clever and worthy of including in here for a wee while :). Heaven forbid what might happen in another 5-6 years, dont know about the reasoning but the prices might be relevant :(. Fingers crossed,

    Hhhmmm....I need to come up with a way to store green beans for decades instead of just years. Heck Ive got room for at least 20 or 30 years worth of coffee! And if I move the espresso machines down here to the bomb shelter/dungeon (there-in lies another whole story) along with the roaster Ill be all set for Coffee Armagedon!! Moahahaha ::) ;D

    Nice link Mal! :D

    When I saw the add I wondered why anybody would want to rub caffeine on their face when you can inject perfectly good Botox. Then I wondered what sort of beans they used and if they were freshly ground... ;D

    I had a laugh - I did the same thing, *hopefully they arent wasting good beans or increasing demand *:( * Its really pathetic what theyll put into products to help sell them. Maybe they should add some microfrothed milk for the morning face cleanser?

    Of course the night cleanser would need a nice chocalate finish to the blend.....

    Hey Java,

    It might work out to be cheaper if you just buy the house next door and use that as your Coffee Kingdom.... imagine, you could set each room aside for specific conditions of storage to suit the various bean origins :). Now that would be something.....

    Maybe you can freeze the beans in some sort of cryogenic chamber. Theyll last for decades, although the defrosting may make them taste a bit funny. If the days of coffee prohibition ever come, you can just say the chamber is for possible clones of yourself, if they ever make that legal.
