Coffee Parasites?

Postby caffeine82 » 07 Oct 2010, 05:54

Maybe it's a silly question, but you know, everybody has their phobias, so here is mine... :-S

Anybody ever seen coffee parasites? I'm getting mad when it comes to beetles, worms, spiders and all that stuff crawling, flying, eating holes in everything and so on.. So I was wondering, if I'm for example storing a pack of coffee for a long time, is there a chance that some unwanted living form will appear there?
Have you ever heard of things like that? I thought it might be possible, since coffee is an organic product...

I've seen it only on pictures. But please don't worry, as I'm sure coffee growers carefully check their coffee before export. :d

Yes, I saw them once and that was one of my worst experiences ever :-( I thought I would never drink coffee again but...So I bought some fresh coffee beans and saw those little creatures....That coffee was stale ans had expired. Guys, be careful! Always look at the expiration date and buy coffee only from reliable vendors even it is a little more expensive. It really worths its money! ~o) ~o) ~o)
