Maybe you've missed this, too. It's also made from green beans.

BTW, the "science" done on this was typical industry supported testing of a total of 30 people. In addition, it is coffee that is untaxed because green.

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

well, if you select 30 people who like your product, you've done testing and you can say in commercials everyone likes your product . . .

but why eating or drinking green beans, they taste so much better roasted, ground and made proper coffee from.

What the eckin peck? Am I missing 60 minutes? :)

So instead of the usual dishwater made from nescafe it tastes like nice green beans mixed with dishwater? :P

I like the fact there's a star next to delicious :D (*Your experience may differ from the grossly overexaggerated description printed on this paper)

It's a lot of bunk about "antioxidants." It's based on suggestibility because of the green tea bunk. Human naivete and suggestibility sell snake oil. Welcome to the planet. Image

Except that Snake oil is made from snakes and therefore not animal friendly!

Green coffee is well obviously Green.... and therefore clearly good for everyone! :shock:

I think Bruce is right

Does that mean I can eat this portafilter? It does have a very green lining.

So if I understand correctly, what people are saying is that if something is green or has green in it's name we should eat it. Is that correct? :? What about things that are green and have green in their name? :? :? Can we leave them alone? I can not imagine it would do me any good! :cry:

Why don't we all forget about eating green and eat cake or things with cake in their name instead? :wink: :D

I think you're both safe as word has it 'tough as boots' is a popular noun for the pair of you.
