Coffee grind

Coffee grinder and bag of beans

A kilogram of coffee on special offer? I had to grab it.

But when I opened the bag this morning I found out it wasn’t ground coffee but¬†coffee beans!

Fortunately we have a coffee grinder, which I’d considered an antique more than anything else.

The catchment tray for the grounds had some rather dubious, partly-scratched-off yellow paint on the inside, so I lined it with foil.

Other than that, it worked well and the resulting coffee was very good.

The trouble is, we¬†already have instant rather than filter coffee for speed some mornings – now there’s yet another step to the process!
