Hoarding coffee for a post-collapse society

In the comedy film Airplane II: The Sequel, Peter Graves plays a flight captain who very calmly takes the news that two of his crew have perished after being sucked out of an airlock. But when a flight attendant then tells him that they’ve run out of coffee, he goes ballistic and reminds everyone about how many times he’s asked for extra coffee to be stored onboard.

While humorous, that movie scene brings up a valid point. Do you really want to live in a world without coffee? I know I wouldn’t! If a disaster strikes, coffee will be one of the things many people will wish they had stockpiled, not just for the enjoyment of the taste, but also to help them stay alert in night watch situations and to use as a bartering tool. But coffee storage is not as simple as stockpiling most types of canned foods. Once a coffee bean is roasted, it will go stale quickly regardless of how it’s stored.

I discovered some great information on this subject in the article below. The author not only explains clearly how and why roasted beans don’t last long, but also provides a workable and cost-effective solution before demonstrating how to roast beans and brew coffee without electricity. Meet you on the other side!

Is coffee important enough to you to include in your emergency food supply, or do you look at it as more of a luxury item? If coffee is a “must” for you, what have you done so far to make it part of your disaster stockpile? Do you have the items you’ll need – including a hand-operated coffee grinder – to prepare coffee in the event of a long-term power outage? I’d love to hear from you about this subject.
