Can Drinking Coffee Can Help Tsunami Recovery?

I’ve heard the suggestion to drink Sumatran coffee to help the tsunami recovery a few times lately. I think it’s a good idea. The skeptic in me says that it won’t amount to a hill of beans (pun intended). But then again, Sumatra coffee is really good! In fact, it’s some of the best coffee beans out there.

Additionally, won’t the cost of tea go up? I think Sri Lanka produces like 80% of the world’s tea (don’t quote me on the number).

Just like tomatoes and citrus are costly right now because of the Florida hurricanes (though mulch is cheap), I think Sumatra coffee and the price of tea will also increase soon.

  • You did the subject a lot more justice than I did. Good job Rob!

    Something I meant to say in the original post but neglected to do so is that I’m all for “doing my part” by drinking Sumatra coffee and tea. However, I’m not sure how big of an impact it really will have and I don’t want to kid myself in thinking that by drinking these things I’m really helping. I may or may not! Instead, we’ve made a financial donation to help directly with the releif. That’s where I feel I’m really making a difference. I don’t think my every so often Sumatra coffee and tea drinking will make a large impact compared to a donation to a releif agency or ministry.
