    By the way, I just want our members to know that I put out these type of threads/postings, not to get some extra recognitions for myself and for others who is helping me in this forum.

    that is not my true intention.

    I want all of us to know that the serious problems that coffee origin industries are facing.

    When a worker (not the owners of farms) get paid less than $8 per day (way less in African countries), when fairtrade / Organic does not allow anyone under age to help the family's work (if the farm owners pay good wage, kids do not need to help picking. pickers get paid by the weight), when the rich does not allow the poor to get ahead, I really do not think that I should be worrying about espresso extraction time, specially when I am working in Guatemala coffee industry.

    Supposedly there are 25 million workers in coffee origin industries. And there are 2 million in Guatemala. But that 2 million is only coffee workers, not counting their families. 99.9% of 2 million families are living under extreme poverty.

    There are way more urgent things in the coffee world.
    I just hope that some of us can look beyond what's in front of you and try to make some difference in a good way.
