Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

I sure have learned a lot about coffee through this discussion. It's been great. We were so intrigued by the Aeropress that we ordered one through Amazon. First, we were impressed by the speed of delivery: 4 days from putting the order in to having FedEx knock on the door to deliver it! Second, we have enjoyed experimenting with it, and have decided that it's a great way to brew? extract? coffee. I've purchased a thermal carafe which is just right for keeping it hot, thus eliminating any need for re-heating. Thank you to all who added to my 'coffee education'.

Glad you are enjoying it Pam. I know of lots of coffee snobs who have the expensive machines that will still brew with the Aeropress now and then, and use it for there 'away from home' method.

I got mine too, just before we left on our trip...and I like it. We brought our percolator since we'd always be doing multiple cups, but when home, and I just want a good cup of coffee, the Aeropress is gonna be "pressed into action"... as well as when we are gonna be away from Alf's "power bush"! This has been a good discussion for sure!

Jim;
What kind of coffee grinder do you take with you? I've been looking at this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Kyocera-CM-50-...=1BABWEYMPOQNF

but really don't know too much about the hand-grinders.

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

That looks just like the Hario Skerton Hand-crank Coffee Mill. It gets good reviews. I bought the Porlex Tall Hand Mill, mainly because it is touted to do a finer grind required for espresso. I really like it a lot. I have only had it for a couple months now, so it has not seen a lot of use yet. They both use ceramic burrs for grinding. Both are available at Sweet Maria's, where I buy most of my green beans, a great place to deal with.

It does take a bit more time to grind than an electric grinder, but I don't mind. Probably near a minute per scoop (amount I use for 1 cup).

Re: Fix'in Coffee...Yummmmmm

One minute to grind one scoop of coffee? I think I'd be tempted to "Tool Time" that grinder (Tim Taylor style) and hook it up to my Dewalt drill.
