What do you think of when you hear of coffee? If you are like me, you think of early mornings with the coffee beside the computer, checking facebook, or shredding out the guitar with coffee as your after-burner...ehem..listening to an annoying cricket in the A/C!!! dry.gif Anyway....You probably don't think of "grand-daddy long-leg" spiders do you? Because that's what I found trying to escape the pot as the coffee started brewing!!! blink.gif

They are actually called "Opiliones," or harvestmen, and are technically not in the spider family (I have just learned from the great Wikipedia.) You can be sure I washed the coffee pot inside and out very thoroughly with soap and hot water before continuing the brewing. wink.gif

How funny laugh.gif

They definitely aren't poisonous, but I have never heard of one in a coffee-pot before. Maybe it was after an insect that went inside it or something.

You gotta love how adventurous and 'I don't care' all these creatures are ! biggrin.gif

What about the 'discovering a dead moth in your tea/coffee' ? That ever happened to anyone ?
