During Ivan and to some extent with Katrina, I got cut off my coffee. It was not a pretty sight.

Seriously, I am a 3 pot a day guy. I've been drinking it black and rough since I was 12. When we were buying hurricane supplies, I picked up a big jar of instant and said "I'm done, what else do we need?".....

I too am a coffeeholic.

I got used to drinking instant years ago. If I'm going to survive, then IT WILL be with my coffee and smokes. I like Folgers and keep a special cabinet with plenty of extra jars, as well as extra jars of nondairy creamer and sugar.

I ask this with a view to storing a certan amount of coffee..not so much as for drinking but as capital..for barter. Preferably in the smaller containers ..not the 2.7 lb cans.

Coffee is the real devil's brew. It's currently ranked 6th in terms of money spent for it amongst agricultural products. By weight, it is far more valuable than any other legal farm product. 1/3 of all tap water used in the US and Europe is used for brewing coffee.

If crude oil were priced like coffee, it would be $1155/barrel.

Every major social revolution for the last 300 years was spawned in a coffee houses. Want to find Osama, you're best bet is to find out his favorite coffee.

When the SHTF, I'm going to be the guy on the corner selling coffee for $20 bucks a cup to all you coffee junkies. I'll have armed guards and it will look like a crackhouse.

If they actually did something stupid, like enact a coffee prohibition, I am sure people would strive to get it on the black market. And those who provide the goods would be rich from ill gotten gains.
Sounds stupid to prohibit it though, but then again it's stupid to prohibit other things that are prohihited by law.

Just got back from visiting a friend who is visiting another friend and she brought coffee with her. It was single serving pouche, you use like tea bags. Each pouch was sealed in its own little air tight foil package. Very light weight I wonder how long coffee in a foil package will last

I recently purchased two coffee plants. It will take a couple of years probably for them to produce. The draw back here is that the beans must be roasted and the chaff removed so I am using it as an extra alternative.

I have tried those coffee bags (like tea bags) before, but, I had to use two to get close to a real cup of coffee.

SO... I got to thinking about a survival pantry, etc.

I sort of freaked when I started thinking about my daily coffee. ATS did not let me down. One question though is what is the best type of camp stove coffee pot to use?

Better to stop drinking coffee, smoking, and drinking altogether right now while you still can, because you don't need withdrawl symptoms adding to your mountain of problems in a survival situation.

Oh yeah take away nice things like coffee, that will make our lifes so much better!

Why would anyone want to stop drinking coffee, it's nice and I don't see any reason why not.

Especially if it's for some sort of future survival thing that you have no idea about, why take away life's good things for something that could never happen? Life is about enjoying it not worrying.

Even if something happens for us to have to survive, I think coffee would be on the bottom of our lists.

Sorry for the long post, not trying to be annoying hehe, have a nice day.
