The coffee beans are ripe in the highlands of Papua New Guinea and yesterday I went with Hoax and Margaret to their garden to pick some. In a couple of hours of leisurely picking mixed with conversation I picked a few hundred coffee beans to contribute to the cause. Considering that 7.8 million tons of coffee beans are produced every year, I think the chances are pretty good that sometime over the next few months you will be drinking coffee brewed from a bean I picked.

    You know this makes me want to try to do this in our own yard, right?

    Or at least brew a cup and read about it on your blog.

    Your aunt is now serving coffee from PNG at Starbucks. You can imagine how well she likes this since she doesn’t drink coffee. It will cheer her up to know that you picked the beans!
