Moving coffee the old fashioned way! Photos of workers carrying full bags of coffee on their shoulder date back to the 1800s. The coffee in this bag is parchment coffee (pergamino), not finished green seeds. So the bags weighs a mere 100 Lbs., not 154 Lbs! That's a lot of weight nomatter what. I have tried to carry coffee this way and it takes some skill but isn't as hard on the body as it appears... then again, I haven't tried doing it 8 hours a day, for the 3 months the mill is in high production.
