I know.Surely you should be growing your own beans at this point?
Sosina (person in question) does seem a bit sheepish about that part, but she looked sternly at me while she was getting the fresh beans out of the cupboard and said: These beans are from Ethiopia, I know him.
I'm not sure exactly what or how she knew, but it was a genuine point of contention that she thought it would be safest to address right off the bat. She knows him.
I didn't comment much because that was right at the start and I had no idea what was coming next, but the fact that she herself didn't pick the beans did appear to grate a bit.
