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!

    You can’t compare instant with freshly ground coffee – got to be worth the extra couple of minutes to prepare!!

      It’s only in the mornings that we indulge in ground coffee. The rest of the day coffee is made and drunk a bit ‘on the fly’ but we do use good quality instant.
