    Green unroasted coffee basically stores indefinitely without even being stored in an oxygen free environment. We just keep it in the burlap sack that it come in, stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Roasting can be accomplished with a frying pan, a baker's whisk and a colander, and takes less than 15 minutes for 1/2 pound. Besides being about a third the price of store-bought beans, freshly roasted coffee tastes far better than anything from Starbucks, Peete's or Tim Horton's.

    Great! I thought about this before but it slipped my mind, I've seen people use a air popcorn popper to roast the beans, only good if your generator is running.

    Dean's Beans - Fair Trade Coffee Fair Trade Coffee Roasters Organic Coffee Roasters

    Coffee Bean Direct

    The Dean's Beans people are a bit cheaper per pound, but they do charge shipping (which can get expensive).

    Coffee Bean Direct is free shipping on orders over 25lbs.

    They are both great companies to deal with.

    No offense Inor, but those dealers are basically $7.50 a pound which is retail rates at the box stores.

    Understanding getting green beans is a "lets fill up a 5 gallon pail with coffee" maybe try these places that I have not used but found in about 2 minutes putting "distributor" in the search window:

    Green coffee beans wholesale

    Wholesale green coffee. Great prices: 50+ varieties. Ships next day

    My cousin actually has a roasting business in the Michigan area, I will contact him for the best sources once I get my fields plowed and my garden in and my orchard planted and...

    HAHAHA!!! Thank-you sir! The last time I ordered was about 3 mos ago and I think I paid around $140 per 25 pound bag. - Still much more than your links. I'll give them a try next time I need to order.

    Please send along a follow up once you talk to your cousin.

    Seriously though, I thought I read somewhere that it takes 1/4 teaspoon of bleach per gallon? And I just bought bleach which said it was 33% more concentrated. Actually, all the bleach jugs had that on the labels. So how much would you use per gallon in that situation? I'm so confused. All of my drinking water has reg bleach (1/4 tspn) per gal. Is that too much? How long does that water stay safe? I've used it in my garden and on house plants after 6 months (w/ the 1/4 tspn bleach/gal) and it was fine. No ill effects. Help me Obiwan Kanobi. You're my only hope.
    LMAO! Now I'm confused! I wouldn't change up what your doing. I found that on a pepper's website that I didn't even think to link it to. I was searching for my own knowledge to store away for future use. Humm, I started to do the math, but not sure if that guide listed above is based on concentrated or not type bleach??

    Good Question!

    Liquid bleach - the kind you buy at the store for doing laundry - is between 3 and 5% sodium hypochlorite and that is what you should use to purify and/or store water. Don't get the scented bleach or the color safe bleach and I stay away from the "brand names" and look at the percentage of sodium hypochlorite. I buy the 5% bleaches and use eight to ten drops per gallon of water.
    Bleach is also good for treating cuts and scrapes that are not major, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces, needles, surgical tools and even your skin as long as it is used in the appropriate concentrations. Along with liquid dish soap (the kind you use when doing dishes by hand) tou can do any cleaning job you have - including bathing and washing your hair.
