In part one of this tutorial, I showed you how to roast coffee beans without electricity.
Why would you do this instead of just drinking instant in the event of a power loss? Well, some of us really like real coffee. Instant is great, but sometimes you just need something real – especially in times of distress. And green coffee beans store exceedingly well for the long term.
If you are at all concerned about planning for a prolonged power outage, being able to go from green coffee bean to a cup of brewed coffee is a powerful thing. I know of one person who plans on doing this as a barter – not bartering the beans, but bartering brewed coffee as a means of survival.
Even if you don’t plan on being the post-apocalyptic Starbucks, a brewed cup of coffee is never too far away if you’re set up right.
