Barth from Barrington Roasters gave me some of these coffee sacks the other day. They’re sort of a waste product in their business. These are the sacks the green beans arrive in.
I was pretty excited about it. The sack is actually the sack our coffee, the stuff we serve you, comes in. And I love this kind of thing, I’m always trying to figure out how to re-use cheap things (e.g., milk-crates) and save money that I can spend on better food for you all.
This sack had me puzzled though, didn’t know what to do with it. Then it came to me, these sacks are the perfect protectors for our new whiteboard signs. These are special signs, some sort of enameled metal. They tell me they will not show “ghosting” as the previous ones did. We’ll see. But they do scratch, and what better than a perfectly sized burlap sack to protect them?
