My $0.02 worth

I was just sitting i the staff room, preparing a Javascript lab for this afternoon, when I overheard something remarkable. One of the staff, whose home is a good way away from here, has fields planted to Coffee. He was describing the problems of tending, weeding, spraying, picking and transporting the coffee to the factories…. who then pay three shillings per kilo for the raw coffee beans.

Thats about 2p/Kg!

He went on to describe how, not supprisingly, he has been letting it go to wate in the fields and planting other things, things that his family can eat.
