Sure, found a number of rocks and concrete fragments over the years. Mostly from Yemen and Ethiopia. I put them in my patio when I was laying concrete and stone, but I've forgotten exactly where. Allon even sent me a couple. I've never ground one that I am aware of. I usually spot them after roasting when I'm scooping them into my storage containers or bags. 
I've also found a few twigs, bits of twine. 
Someone found an ear ring (may have read that one in Roast mag).
