Hydrocarbons in my Brazil?
JETROASTER
I got a couple bags of Brazil yesterday. Thankfully, they are 'hydrocarbon-free'.....I guess.

I didn't realize I had a hydrocarbon problem.

Did I ? -Scott

Ignorance is no excuse. Just keep those bags away from your hydrocarbon laced ones... and propane.. and ski wax... and never mind I have to go refill my lighter with butane.

I'm concerned they aren't classified as dihydrogen monoxide free... eeep.

I'm thinking that "Hydrocarbon Free" means that any motor oil you find on your beans is free... no charge. ;)

I thoght the hydrocarbons were to make them heat up faster...
No oil on my beans...

Thats a very good point! Not "free of hydrocarbon" but "hydrocarbons are free"

It's not commonly known up north here but the indigenous Hydrocarbon Tribe has been incarcerated in attempt to replace their machetes with Weedeater string trimmers. It's all about branding and marketing. I'm just glad awareness of their plight has grown to the point where the growers have taken up their plight.

Hydrocarbon free, Hydrocarbon free, Hydrocarbon free,

Perhaps the bag is hydrocarbon free.

I had read that chlorinated hydrocarbons are used in chemical decaf processes.
Another idea is maybe they are talking about something that is sprayed as a pesticide on the bags?
Though my heart is in support of the tribe, plights are always arduous and long sought.

The Hydrocarbon Tribe got what they deserved. They were first known as the 'Beanie Babies'.
When the survival of the tribe became threatened, they alligned themselves as the militant wing of $tarbucks.....evident in their name;

Hydra(water) Carbon(burnt) Burnt water = $tarbucks

During the single-serve wars, they found themselves abandoned as the more dominant tribe took power....the 'K-cup Tribe'

They had it coming. -Scott

Wow, I can see how another tribe armed with K sized cups would be unassailable. Then again I don't want to see that.
