On the rare occasion, small stones and rocks may make their way into an order of beans. Why does this happen?
At Green Beanery, our coffee farmers are often based in developing countries and are not always working with mechanized sorting processes. Often coffee is spread out to dry in fields, where it would be easy for a small stone or other foreign objects to mix in with the beans, and the screens the farmers use to sort the beans might not catch these unwelcome objects either. That is why we recommend customers check their bean orders for small foreign objects before grinding.
