BERLIN (AP) — A Berlin coffee business found stimulants it didn't expect in a shipment of unroasted coffee from Brazil: 33 kilos (nearly 73 pounds) of cocaine.
Police in the German capital said Thursday that employees at the coffee-roasting business found the bag full of the drug the previous day when they opened a newly arrived container of coffee, and contacted authorities.
The delivery was shipped from Brazil to the German North Sea port of Bremerhaven on its way to Berlin. Police said in a statement they're investigating who was responsible and how the drugs ended up at the coffee business.
