    Coffee

    So what are you doing for long term coffee storage. When the zombies come I still want my coffee!

    Green coffee beans can last a long time in vacuum storage. I roast the beans on a cast iron skillet - it takes less than 5 minutes.

    I am sorry that everyone cannot own a Hummer; some folks have to drive a Jeep or a Toyota.

    I found that feeding my coffee beans to my monkeys and having them passed through their digestive systems is the way to go for several reasons - the zombies won't know what to do with the monkeys and the rejuvenated coffee beans are then worth $600/lb. or $50/cup.

    You do know that zombies are a figment of movie writers' imaginations?

    Don't know anything about Hummers, but I do speak Malamute.

    I'm just starting to look into this. Where do you get your beans from?

    There are sites on the internet that sells green beans. If you want smaller amounts, find a roaster in your area and purchase the beans from the roaster. Unfortunately, Whole Foods sells the beans in green form, but they are the same price as roasted. Bad because the green beans weigh more than the roasted beans.

    Thanks. It did suprise me that roasted coffee is only good for about a year. And about the only one I can think of that's packed in cans anymore is Tim Hortons out of Canada.

    Two useful tools that can help with coffee in a grid-down situation are a manual popcorn popper (pot) that will continually stir the coffee beans while you roast them, I'd recommend stainless steel with a crank handle for this, and don't forget to get a manual grinder to grind the beans down.

    Don't worry about it. I'm sure Starbucks will still be open.

    I'm confused..... how do you enforce contracts of sale with zombies (a contract is formed by an agreement, which requires knowledge of intent by the parties...)

    I have no intention of trying to sell and collect money from zombies for a cup of coffee. I'll be trading my monkey rejuvenated coffee beans to those who just have to have such a delicacy and are among the living for some gas, ammo, guns or whatever else they might have that I may happen to want or need. As someone once said, "There's a sucker born every minute". If there are any of those suckers still around then who are paying that kind of money today for a cup of monkey **** cup of Joe, imagine what they'd be willing to trade for!
