I don't think that would work at all but maybe somebody else will tell you it will work.

I had 5 pounds of Brazilian Sierra Negra that we really disliked 5 or 6 years ago when I bought them. But recently I ran out of beans and was forced to roast them. The coffee was actually pretty good by itself, but mostly I used it as filler for other varietals. My normal technique is to roast 5 batches(popcorn popper) at medium and one at dark to boost the flavor, the Brazilian worked well as the dark roast.(22oz. more or less)
A coffee bomber?
(is it bad form to quote oneself?)
No. Not on the AHA...
I have one of those eye-talian aluminum espresso-pot jobbies.
It'll produce a 16oz cup of espresso if I pack it right. But I settle for 12oz and consistency. That'll put lead in your pencil.
Built a roaster out of a popcorn popper years back and produced some awesome coffee. And I have about 5-10# of various green beans that are about 5 years old. Any good you think?
Where I live mesquite is just a damn nuisance. It grows everywhere, you can't kill it, and the thorns will flatten truck tires. But when new drilling locations are built lots of mesquite gets bulldozed so I pick it up all the time.
As for shipping to France, there are no restrictions on shipping live plants. I shipped 6 dry root pecan trees to my BIL last spring, and before I did it I checked the EU regulations.
My BIL has tried growing green chiles in France(he's a farmer) but the growing season is too short.
One thing I've noticed about BBQ in Europe, it's like Germany resurrected the Sigfried Line. If you want to buy anything like a smoker, you gotta head towards the German border, no matter what country you're in.
