I've been doing research into SHTF farming!!
and it seems like a good time to tell others.. before.~`~~~.youknow..~~~~
invest in Brown Gold--- GROW your OWN coffee trees!!!
indoors.. in your own home--barn-- or basement...
ONLY__16 coffee trees, are needed to supply the average American's yearly coffee drinking habit.
Here is the math:
The average American drinks 3.2 cups of coffee per day
This equates to 1,168 cups of coffee per year
Since 45 cups of coffee can be made from one pound of roasted coffee beans, then the average American consumes 25.95 pounds of roasted coffee beans
Roasted coffee loses 20% of its weight in the roasting process, so the average consumption equates to 32.44 pounds of green coffee beans per year.
Note: @ 3,500 green coffee beans per pound, the average consumption would be 113,555 green coffee beans per year.
Green coffee beans are derived from twin seeds found inside a coffee cherry. These twin seeds only contribute 20% of the coffee cherry's weight, so
the weight of coffee cherry's needed to satisfy the consumption is 162.2 pounds of coffee cherry.
Note: this is roughly what one person could pick in a day.
Since the average coffee tree produces 10 pounds of coffee cherry per year (2 pounds green beans), then 16 coffee trees are required to supply the
average American's coffee drinking habit.
... Note: @ 1square metre per tree = 16 m2 of farming space. INDOORS!!
here is some offsite help..www.coffeeresearch.org...
The most important thing to remember about growing a Coffee Tree is that it takes years to mature to a bean growing state. so .. you should start
i have 10 trees growing in my front room,, plenty of light.. and the air just smells BETTER..
second year now.. and should fruit this summer...(hope)
GREAT barter item..!!!
butts booze bullets babes and BEANS
