Coffee Wood - Page 2

post #21 of 30

Coffee wood is used for rotisserie chickens all of the time in Costa Rica. It isn't the most pungent flavor you'll ever find but I've found it quite pleasant. For years, whenever I got to San Jose, one of my first actions was going to a chicken place near the SE corner of Avenida 2 and Calle 7 for this delightful product.

We are in Costa Rica and we export to the U.S. And have distributors in Florida and Texas of lump and chips of Costa Rican coffee wood. We also export macadamia wood and shells, mango wood and guava woods. All excellent for smoking. Create your own blend. Pm me for the info.

Coffee farming does use insect sprays.

Not all farms do. Most farms do not as it will add a chemical taste to the coffee. If they do, it is usually some kind of all natural spray. I love coffee and consider myself to be a connisseur. Ive learned how to roast coffee and even spent a couple days on a farm in colombia.

I drive thru a 27 acre coffee farm everyday. I think they spray something about every six months for bugs. It's more of a misting powder they shoot out... icon14.gif

I'm watching them closely this year because in February most farms here trim their trees and I can load up on coffee wood for free! It's not my favorite smoke wood but the price is right... I also have tons of guava on my property.

I also know of an organic coffee farm and they take all of the fish carcasses from my part time job and use that as a natural fertilizer. I'll ask them next time I see them if I can get some wood from them this year.

I don't know what they do spray? Fertilizer? Anyway they use insect traps as well...

Where's the Macadamia Nut? Hawaii is a lot like Costa rica in many ways. Nice produce, good coffee, excellent waves and a great vacation spot. I guess we both are One Lucky Doggs.

I have my eye on a Mac nut tree! It's days are numbered...

We live in the Orosi Valley in Costa Rica and sold our coffee from 85,000 coffee trees to Starbucks. We used this trap for the "broca" weevil that drill into the coffee bean and kills the seed. The the trap you see is a natural chemical that does nothing to the plant or wood. They use this on organic farms like Cafe Christina to control the pest.
