Dear Jan and John,

Here's a URL to look at that seems to have a lot to say about it...

They had an interesting viewpoint about Organic Coffee.... seems as if a lot
of chemicals may possibly be sprayed on coffee plants and end up being taken
into the beans.  I wonder if there is a cumulative effect to consuming that

The above URL even talks about using Coffee as a foliar spray, hot coffee to
kill insects, and grinds to benefit many plants including tomatoes.  It
seems there is some sort of mineral bennefit, but I don't know which
minerals.  It can even be used to damage fungi on plant surfaces when it is
sprayed on hot.

Best Regards,
