Olive oil companies in Italy were caught selling olive oil from Spain and elsewhere as Italian olive oil. In some cases they were selling olive oil that was adulterated with vegetable oil. The French were caught selling wine that was regionally labeled that was not, in fact, from that region.

Coffee labeled as “forest grown” sells for considerably more money. Given the history of some Italian and French olive oil and wine producers, I have to wonder if “forest grown” coffee will not be similarly mislabeled.

Would it be possible to randomly test raw coffee beans to determine their origin?
