is this including postage? any chance we could get it cheaper? how reliable are they in terms of delivery? how long with 50kg of cofffee go? how do we store it all? I'm sure gc will knock a couple quid off the price if we tell them we are changing suppliers.... Alex. Make it a mention!

It's not just the price. It's also where the product is coming from. The Zapatista project is the fairer trade of fair trade!

According to Bill, it does include postage.

We get about 6-12kg of coffee/week.

We've got the room for lots of unopened bags and certainly for 1 open bag. It could even go in the kitchen freezer if the walls weren't so thick.

I can't wait for the taste of freedom.

How much are the small bags? will the forest rip me off for it? If it's real good can we buy big bags of the beans? Will the forest rip me off for it?

These people are armed, but don't kill people right? cool, gimme coffee.

yeah the zapatistas are sweet.....truely.....no we won't rip you off..look at the price sheet attachment on my post above......we could order bags of250g or strong italian espresso ground coffee to sell in bags to folk seeing as its fucking sweet coffee and for something really good. we can buy bags of this for 2.25 euros....forest mark up is usually a third so maybe we would sell them for about 3 euros or 3.50 euros (£2.25-£2.50?).....this is just a guess......we can't get the espresso type coffee in bigger bags. only the standard coffee in 500g bags.

I think all this sounds very good, go for it!

I think we should get some bags to sell in the cafe. To my recollection when we sold small bags they sold like vegan hotcakes! (on that note, new cakes are AMAZING!!!)

Bill, I know a man that knows some woman that knows someone who could protect your dog for you.

Big love, Alex*

As Swithun suggested to me last night:If anyone sees any balaclavas in a charity shop or something please buy some so that we can have a balaclava day to promote our new zapatista coffee. Also automatic weapons. Toy ones. Which we will not use unless we really, really have to.

Yes a film will be good.

Seriously, does anyone know where I could pick up a load of balaclavas and other zapatista outfit stuff? I am just dumb enough to not know where to conveniently get it for cheap. Poundsavers maybe, or Edinburgh Bargain Store. I will look.

We could also make a new revolutionary menu: Zapatista coffee, Sandinista sandwiches, Bolivarian beans on toast, Fascist Earl Grey (it's always been the tea of the fascists), Marxist Mozarella... Or at least a poster. And put it on the sign outside. I think the arrival of Zapatista coffee should be on the events board too, but that's just me.

Do we still have that ragdoll man around? If I could get some stuff he could be made into a zapatista.

There is much hilarity to be made from these Zapatistas and their Subcommandante Marcos, while also promoting the forest and the zapatistas.

Image

(It's NOT PHOTOSHOPPED! Honest! Our friend Jon-from-ACE used The GIMP)

Just change that starbucks logo to a forest logo... Subcommandante Marcos eats a MUG FULL of forest cafe zapatista coffee beans every morning, and he has CONTINUALLY OUTWITTED THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT. BE that smart, drink coffee, etc.

Ok I'll try to get down to an army surplus store, maybe at the weekend. That'll be soon enough right? We don't have to do zapa day on the exact day the stuff arrives, especially cos we don't know exactly when that is. Should we pick a day?

Balaclavas

Postby graeme » Tue Mar 13, 2007 11:53 am

I work near the Leith Army Store and can get the balaclavas if you want, how many do you need? Alternatively there is another army store in Newington, opposite the old Odeon cinema.

We could use 4 perhaps. That is how many people usually work in the kitchen at one time.

How about fixing the day for a couple of weeks from now, assuming that we will have the coffee by then. It will give us time to get publicity together and use up as much of the old coffee as possible.

Yes, we should pick a day and make a proper event of it. We should ask for a budget from the events people. There should be Rage Against the Machine on the stereo, and balaclavas in the kitchen. We should put on a couple of Zapatista documentaries, and invite the Chiapis solidarity crew along for a stall (with full warning that there will be a good dose of hilarity).

Balaclavas

Postby graeme » Wed Mar 14, 2007 11:59 am

I bought(and have gifted to the Forest) 4 balaclavas, they are in the office in a Leith Army Stores carrier bag.
I accept the moral and ethical implications of the purchase and will not be offended if other balaclavas/hats/bandanas are sourced and used.
