It's in! Haven't put the small packets out yet, and still have a bunch of the other coffee to go through before it's in the espresso machine.

i would like to talk about associating the zapatistas with mao etc?


I am very against associating them with Mao. In fact, I might exercise a block on that one. We can take the piss out of Mao and Stalin and the rest of the fascists another day.

Mao actually did a lot for human rights and male/female equality in China. If you read about the Kuomintang, who proceeded him, you will understand what an important difference he made. But all that power went to his head and he became rather mad, unfortuantely. Poor chap!

I heard that the PRC began importing Zapatista coffee and that's when it started to go wrong...

According to these minutes: http://www.theforest.org.uk/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2127 we decided on punter £2.75 Vollies £2.25 Festival twisted smiles £3.30 for a bag of zapa coffee. Right now we have the bags in the display fridge but no indiciation that they're for sale and the vollies don't know the price. We need a poster!

Links to leaflet from cafe libertad or something? I see the link to their website but it's in like Chinese or something. I suppose we can reuse the marcos image, we need a small poster basically saying 'we got zapa coffee from these cafe libertad this is why it's good (ethical reasons plus tastes great) these are the prices. I suck at this. Someone else do it please.

Yo - the bags in the display fridge ARE NOT £2.75. They are the bigger bags that we use in our grinder. We are out of the smaller bags, which sell for £2.75. I will remove the large bags to avoid any confusion.

Also, could we put in another coffee order? Bill - can you show me the way??

Right, well when we do have more bags here is a poster with the prices to go next to them. Words once again harvested from this thread. We would only need one copy of this, so maybe laminate it? Could be A4 or A5.

Sorry - my Spanish isn't as good as I think it is. I was getting confused with Navidad (Christmas). Looks like you no longer speak the truth Bill.
