I'm planning a several week trip in my VW camper to Baja. As my traveling companion is particular about breakfast, I figured coffee was going to be awfully important. I will trust Tonx for our beans but I wanted to make certain her morning brew was special. GSI's hand operated conical burr grinder and a 1L insulated press seemed a great answer.
Last night, I tried the grinder. It is simple and easy to operate, as a grinder should be. Remove the handle and turn the wing-nut to adjust coarseness. A few cranks 'n tweaks and I had it just right. The grinder is cleverly designed to fit on top of most round coffee presses. It slides around a bit on the GSI Glacier 1L press that I paired it with, but is no problem to use.
The press worked as expected and the insulation had coffee drinkable one hour later. The Tonx coffee was delicious.

As the old saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for 30 minutes every day. Unless you are too busy, in which case you should meditate for an hour.” Since most of us have an endless list of things to do and people to see, carving out quiet time can feel impossible, especially when most […]
