    Gotta get a hand grinder, the pre-ground stuff is a bit shit and it doesn’t last long, had to chuck out some that I had in an airtight container as it was tasting like ground up shoe leather. Or caterers blend, whichever. So what is a good one? One you can carry on a bike?”



    My hand press has a screw top lid that keeps the grounds fresh for a least a week.
    Grind enough beforehand and it should be okay.
    I do carry the grinder when car camping more than a week, but don’t take it on the bike.

    The lid has the word Kyocera if that’s any help ?

    Over the past 6 months I have taken some pics of nice cups of coffee. My mornings usually start with a cup of tea - strong and white.

    Then 2 x double shot latte's.

    Then I'm right to go for the day!

    Good thing that adventure riding isn't subject to ASADA rules! You'd be in strife pretty quick with that caffeine intake!!

    Cheers

    Brian, your post has caused me to reflect upon my unhealthy addiction to caffeine. So, for something a little different, I have just picked a heap of stinging nettles and am about to make my first ever nettle tea. I'm disappointed it took me so long to get around to this . . .

    OK, well. It tastes great, similar to green tea. Looks like green tea.

    Might be onto something! Grows here like crazy, and the rabbits don't eat it. Might scale back my love of the coffee bean and substitute nettles.

    Stinging nettles ?
    First time I ate them was last year in Bremen, Germany.
    A bit of a trick with the boiling but very tasty. It’s always nice to eat wild grown stuff.
    I haven’t had a tea made from them.

    I’m a fan of Rooibos, but no bloody way would I give up the bean and replace it with some dried South African bush. Nettles? Cut back on Coffee? Take a long hard look at ya self Tori.

    Give it a shot, it's bloody delicious!

    You're so right. What was I thinking? If it was between nettles and coffee, it wouldn't even be a contest. I might switch my standard tea drinking to the nettles though. Free, tasty, tea-like.

    Kinu m47 hand grinder is the next level.

    You would want a minimum 600cc machine for lugging it around. And safety deposit top box to store in.

    This is a superb unit. I doubt anyone whom appreciates quality, consistency and coffee would be disappointed.

    Morning addiction almost satisfied. The perfect stimulant to get me through a day of video editing.

    Neighbour across the road asked me over for a coffee last week, whilst chatting to his wife he hands me the coffee at a quick glance I saw lots of crema, mmm nice I thought to myself.
    Still talking and not looking, I like my coffee real hot so whilst not paying attention I take a sip and a smell of the coffee, as soon as it touched the back of my throat it all came rushing back out again and I aim to the front door and the garden, I could feel all my internal contents coming up.
    The bastard had put milk in it!
    Tip to everyone, never put milk in a coffee without asking first especially to an import like me.
    I have been drinking black coffee since I was child around 10? and I don't like the taste of milk.

    He is always asking me over for a beer and I'm not much of a drinker, he has three or four in the time I struggle to finish one and then stagger home all happy to the laughter of my wife saying you've been drinking with Paul again, so next time he is over my place for a drink I'll make him a shandy and see what he thinks.
