Did you sample any of the Kamano Kafe coffee that we took with us on our travels last year? 

(Clare) recently accompanied a class trip to the hut where the Kamano Kafe Bible Translation Team produces it:

First, a hand crank hulling machine is used to remove parchment
(a thin, paper-like membrane) from the dry beans.  Next, five kilograms of coffee beans are put into the roasting machine (see picture below), where they are constantly rotated to prevent burning.  A window in the machine means that the operator can see when the desired roast has been reached. 

Finally, the coffee is poured into bags and sold.  The profits are used to fund the continued work of Bible translation into the Kamano Kafe language
