I seem to be on the Comex (?) list to be notified about coffee beans:)
and here is the latest offering.

http://www.comexinternational.com/listings/listing_detail.cfm?aucID=182934652

I notice there are literal barges for sale on the site as well. I
guess every ruined thing ends up here for a possible sale, but moist &
moldy robusta? Yikes.

Interesting...

I've tried both greens - Mexican Genuine Coatepec or Turquesa.

Now I buy Costa Rica first, Guatemalan and Panama, and last, Zimbabwe
AA Salimba. Not sure why I've forgone Mexican, just that I do.

And ask for Julian, so they keep telling me (likely somebody
rebuilding high-end or commercial espresso machines on the side).
Somehow I don't think the question is impertinent in this instance.

Actually, I wish I could get my hands on a bag of lousy beans. I mean,
for cheap, of course.

We need to do some test roasts in the new Open Sky roaster model, and
by golly I don't want to do 15 pounds of something I won't need or
can't sell. I just want to season the sucker with some coffee.

Not moldy stuff, mind you -- but the beans relatively unaffected?
Sure. Lousy tasting in the cup? Sure!

Argh. Do you know what the response is like when you call a commercial
roastery (like Intelly) and ask 'em if they have any lousy beans they
want to dump for cheap? ;-)

Wonder if I could convert my pellet wood stove? ;-)
