Ground coffee


We grind our coffee beans by hand & use powdered milk to save room in the fridge. Cleaning the coffee press is easy. Just let it dry for 15 minutes & it can almost be dusted off to avoid wasting water. 

Remember to use good beans & even more importantly do not use boiling water on any form of coffee.

Dont use boiling water you say? I got a taste for Vietnameee coffee and they use this wretched cylindrical collander which I can never get to work properly.

But I love Vietnameese Coffee and cant seem to make it myslf. I normally chuck the coffee in the billy and give it a swirl in boiling water and put up with a few grounds. But the taste is never any good.

Should I get a plunger and use it off the boil?

there was a thread on coffee on this forum and the information that is on it about coffee was very enlightening.


a couple of things I remember was 85 deg was the temp for coffee not boiling

coffee gives off co2 for 14 days after roasting then it reaches peak flavour


maybe some one could find a link

not correct . it depends on the bean . some coffee reaches its best long before 14 days and infact has already started to go down hill after that much time . then there are other coffee's monsooned coffee from india is one that comes to mind that will not be at its best until 3 weeks or so after roasting . the columbian that i am roasting is pretty dam good after 2 days post roast and is very good for 2 to 3 weeks then very slowly downgrade a little but still not to bad for a few more weeks . any older than that i dont know it never gets that far here but i do know that some people that buy beans from me get a lot longer but i think they keep it in the freezer.

 I also roast my own Johno, have been for over 10 years, I use a Coretto, what method do you use?

I tend to agree with you re aging of beans, however one point I would make, once ground coffee starts to deteriorate immediately, within 12 hours it no longer suitable for espresso, OK for Frech press or similar, after 10 days its only use is for compost.smile

 Ditto Kesa, been buying green beans from Andy for over 10 years, good quality, terrific range and great service.

I roast about 750 grams every 10 days, fresh roasted coffee as close as the back shed.smile

Don't blend much Kesa, roast mainly single origin, sometimes with a percentage of robusta.smile
