I have a 3 year old bag of green OBJ in my cupboard. Would that matter?

Bruce your friend may have been on to something.

Cold coffee: the insider beauty tip!

Many people suffer from dry, flaky skin in winter. But few people know that fresh coffee grounds make an inexpensive and effective exfoliant!

Back on topic; did another roasts and let a couple of friends blindtaste 6 different coffees of which 3 were of the old batch. They were able to pick out the old batches without thinking. So as said before in this thread, they were probably stored in a way that tainted the coffee. Unfortunately I know nobody who makes soap/candles or who can use the beans for decorative use so anyone who wants to have the old coffee (60 to 80 kilo) is welcome to pick it up for free. If interested PM me.
