i did one trip where i did all of my grinding at home, then sealed up each portion in a vacuum sealer. lots of waste (relative speaking), but it worked well. now i make little pouches out of wax paper and use those. less airtight, but if i do it right before i step off on my trip, it's good enough, especially if all of the coffee goes into a small freezer ziploc bag.
i have this for my car camping set: [link]
For the moment I just got a pound of the good stuff from a local place (Mill Mountain) that roasts their own coffee, and I had them grind it for me, I keep it in the freezer.
I know to grind immediately before brewing is best, and I'm looking at getting one of those manual ones, as I definitely can't afford a nice electric one, would something like this suffice?
Is this grinder considered above or below the Hario Mini Mill?
What's the difference between the Hario Mini Mill and the Hario Skerton?
would this be a good choice grinder for a beginner, and would it be signficantly better than electric blade? it seems like the Hario one is recommended much more on this sub but this one is cheaper and has better reviews on amazon
Get a hand mill.
I mean im gonna take it for 15 bucks. Here is the burr grinder. I've had a Krups one in the past and enjoyed it. Here is the burr grinder

If you're not above buying new, these things are pretty awesome, and not too expensive.
Hey. Not OP. I was looking at buying this manual coffee grinder since I'm looking to start getting into coffee. I'm gonna be using a dripper. Would you say this is a good starter? My budget isn't huge right now so manual grinder is all I could do ATM. [link]
Thank you so much for the reply. I will certainly look into that one. I have been shopping around for a burr grinder, I actually have one in my cart on amazon right now I’m going to order with the drip. I’ve been using my press for about two years now and have finally talked myself into getting a grinder because I know freshly ground beans make the biggest difference in a cup. But at the same time, I’m not really wanting to drop a hundred dollars on a grinder at the moment so I’m trying
this one . We are still in the process of modeling our kitchen so I’m waiting til we get it finished and the space established before I get the big stuff. If I get six months use out of that one, it’s worth it to me.
Edit : formatting ffs
A year ago I bought one of these grinders (below) to use at work because they are quiet. Needless to say it never made it to work; just sat at home after using it only a couple times.
I got it out recently and decided to try running a drill on it as a joke... worked surprisingly well. I know nothing about coffee/grinding/brewing though and am a bit of a hack but it did work.

What hand grinder do you use? I was thinking about getting this one. Manily use my French press and I grind my beans at the store when I buy them.
People have generally got you covered with local roasters already, but I learned recently that Premier on Maple Rd also carries a fair number of beans. They aren't cheap necessarily, but you can also pour smaller weights if you want to try something without buying an entire bag of it.
Also, I have this grinder which works well for just one or two people's worth of coffee.
It’s not this one in particular but looks exactly like it. here
I’ve seen the compass, thanks for the link. How to tell between sour and bitter? Also at 1:13 I feel like I should already have a fuller more robust brew. Should i try 1:10? Just seems like so many beans
The only thing I'm putting on my christmas list this year is a baratza encore. I'm super excited, I feel the main thing keeping me from making good coffee more often is the hassle of grinding the beans. I have this burr grinder, and it works well enough, but it takes almost as long to grind the beans as it does to heat up the water, and the grind consistency is pretty bad.
I never got anything besides threshold effects and nausea until I started turning my seeds into powder first. This coffee grinder is 25$ im sure it won't break the bank lol
For the CWE process itself soak the powder in a jar with 8-10 oz water and 3 oz lemon juice for 2-4 hours, pour the liquid through a t shirt or some other filter to separate the powder from the liquid, usually I boil some cinnAmon in water separately, add honey and let cinnamon tea cool and mix with cold CWE. Take 75 mg diphenhydramine (Benadryl) or dimenhydrinate and then drink, take some tums and a few aspirin and be on your merry way
