Fun!

One of the things I had on my Christmas list and received this year was a hand-grinder for coffee (thanks Lauren and Dean!). Hey, if the power goes out, I still want real coffee - I'm totally addicted to fresh ground. So I used it this morning and it worked like a charm. From the hand-grinder to the french press, and voila. Mmm. Smells and tastes great. Come on, blizzard. I'm ready for you now...

Reminds me of the year my brother had a terrible tragedy happen: the power went out and he couldn't grind his coffee beans! So for Christmas the next year, I got him a hand grinder and some warm socks - kind of a Red Cross package for serious coffee people!

Sweet... so when are you going to take up roasting your own?

I've been hand grinding for years. Once you go whole bean, you'll never go back. BTW, I don't remember if you have a gas stove or electric, could make a difference if the power goes out. ;-)

Hand grinders are wonderful. We have an electric one for now, which is so noise producing, the cats hit the ceiling in the morning.

Of course we have an electric stove, so I guess an outage would leave us to suck beans anyway.
