Dear Robert, I posted a note in alt.coffee today regarding importation of green beans into Hawaii. I wonder if you would publish something along the same lines in your eJournal? It is so important to people in Hawaii, but that would be the only state, however...if any green bean sellers subscribe to your eJournal, then perhaps they would resist the urge to send any green coffee to Hawaii unless it was fumigated. Let me know if I could help you, help us, in any way. Thank you in advance. With aloha, Cea Smith Posted to alt.coffee: I just got a note from a fellow Hawaii state resident, unknown to alties, who occasionally buys our green Kona Coffee. He wrote for our advice saying.."my stash of green beans has become infested with those little hard-shelled dark brown beetles (about the size of a sesame seed). ... Fortunately, they seem to go for the Harar and Sidamo that I'll probably toss out. Fortunately they haven't attacked my prized wet-processed beans, especially that stellar batch of peaberry that you sent me earlier this year. What shall I do?" An ALARM went off! To all green bean sellers on the mainland and elsewhere, You May Not Send Any Green Coffee beans into the State of Hawaii without it being fumigated with Methyl Bromide. It is a State Law! The reason behind this important law, is that we do not have the devastating Broca Borer, etc. here. Other coffee growing places where the Broca Borer is entrenched, have a terribly difficult time contending with the bug, necessitating chemical use etc. If our State law was ignored, Kona Coffee would suffer unbelievable damage. It would be devastating. Please realize that if you are sending unfumigated green coffee into Hawaii, you are breaking a State law and I would have no trouble telling someone about someone who was doing that. end of rant with aloha, Cea Smith http://www.smithfarms.com Farmers & Sellers of our 100% Kona Coffee & other Good Stuff!

Sidney Lovett ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 4. A Daily Dose of Wisdom from the Rebbe -Words and condensation by Tzvi Freeman B"H Mind and Heart -------------- The mind and the heart make a good pair. The heart is an extremist: Untamed, a single emotion will fill its entire space. The mind finds balance and harmony, even between opposites. The mind is cold and aloof. To the mind, reality is a curiosity. But the heart lives in a real world where things matter. When the heart listens to the vision of the mind, it too learns to carry a counterpoint of voices, even the voices of other hearts. When the mind listens to the depths of the heart, then its vision can go out into the world.

Caffeine May Evict Garden Pests Repels slugs and snails, and it's safe By Kathleen Doheny HealthScoutNews Reporter THURSDAY, June 27 (HealthScoutNews) -- If snails and slugs are ruining your plants but you're loathe to use pesticides, a new study says you may someday kick them out with what gives you a kick in the morning.

The answer is that you view approval as pleasurable and giving you happiness. Realize how much needless suffering your approval-seeking causes you. This will motivate you to master an attitude that allows you to feel happy even when people fail to show you honor and approval. It is ironic that something one wants for happiness causes so much unhappiness. By giving up the demand for approval, you will ensure yourself greater happiness in life.

No Link Between Coffee Consumption and Colorectal Cancer New evidence shows no association between coffee consumption and risk of colorectal cancer, despite previous studies, which suggested coffee consumption had a protective effect.

Yee Times-Union staff writer Seventeen-year-old Jennifer Adamo will skip breakfast, but she won't skip coffee. "This is my breakfast," said Jennifer, of Arlington, who has been drinking coffee since she was 4. That's right, Jennifer loves joe and has a cup every morning, every day. But a lone java junkie she's not. These days, more teens are stepping out for a daily fix of the caffeinated stuff. Whether they're looking for a pick-me-up or just an excuse to meet up with friends, many teens are getting a kick out of coffee.

It is coffee related, but focuses on the sale of Fair Trade Certified Coffees. The name of this company is: The Fair Trade Coffee Company Check out the website for a clearer understanding of Fair Trade Certified Coffees. http://www.fairtradecoffee.org I will be selling this coffee through mail-order off the website and through a special fundraising program I'm providing to church groups, called "the Fair Trade Coffee Crusade." It's the Fair Trade Coffee Crusade that I'm really excited about! It is a brilliant, user-friendly, fundraising program that brings together the sale and advocacy of Fair Trade Certified Coffees, church groups' never-ending need to raise money and my never-ending need to roast and sell more coffee. It's one of those WIN WIN deals! "The Fair Trade Coffee Crusade: Raising awareness while raising money!" I've been testing this program with the youth group at my church (the Summit Unitarian Universalist Church) for the past year. Although we haven't been selling 'Fair Trade Certified' Coffee, I've learned a lot about how to streamline such an operation; make it user-friendly (OK... "Idiot Proof!"). It was finally time to grow the program and to pitch the idea to the entire denomination. So, I officially launched the company at the annual all-church convention (known as General Assembly). I spent last week in Quebec City, passing out magnets, buttons and brochures in the convention's exhibit hall, talking to anyone who'll stop and listen. I took names and e-mail's of those who might want to start the Crusade at their congregations -- be they members of the youth group or any other group within the church. I think I got my point across. I have a list of 90 congregations interested (to some degree) in trying the program. We'll see how many actually follow through, but judging by the enthusiasm, I bet half of them will do it. It's sooooo easy, they have nothing to lose! Please check out the website. You'll learn all about the benefits of purchasing Fair Trade Certified Coffee and if you click on the link to the Fair Trade Coffee Crusade you might just find the perfect fundraiser for YOUR Church group!

Governor Approves Coffee Labeling Law By BOBBY COMMAND/ West Hawaii Today Those who sell coffee grown in Hawaii will have to use labels which inform customers how much of what they are selling is Hawaii coffee under a law approved Friday by Gov. Ben Cayetano. The new law takes effect July 5, 2003 and allows consumers to clearly distinguish a 100 - percent Hawaiian coffee from a blend that uses both Hawaiian coffee and foreign coffee, said Frank Kiger, Hawaii Coffee Association president.

A grande decade for Starbucks; can the next 10 years be as profitable? By Jake Batsell Seattle Times business reporter When Howard Schultz and Orin Smith hit the road to pitch Starbucks' initial public offering in 1992, many of the Wall Street investors they courted were incredulous. "They'd say, 'You mean, you're going to sell coffee for a dollar in a paper cup, with Italian names that no one in America can say? At a time in America when no one's drinking coffee? And I can get coffee at the local coffee shop or doughnut shop for 50 cents? Are you kidding me?' " Schultz, company chairman, recalled recently.

Hunger haunts Panama's Guaymis CERRO SOMBRERO, Panama : A group of sluggish children, their stomachs swollen from malnutrition, stand around a pot of a lumpy rice drink, while their mother, too weak to stand herself, ladles out a spoon of the hot white sludge to each child. The Tubris family, members of Panama's indigenous Guaymi people, has been unable to sell its coffee crop this year because of the collapse in world coffee prices, and is now too poor to buy enough food or crop seeds to feed itself.
