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]
I’m new as well. One of my first purchases was this manual grinder. It’s awesome, and my coffee instantly improved.
In addition to the forearm workout, you can adjust the grind size to exactly what you need. I use medium-coarse (12 clicks) for v60 pour over and coarse (18 clicks) for cold brew. It comes with a nifty little chart to help know which setting you should use for different brewing methods.
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
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
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
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]
If you're not above buying new, these things are pretty awesome, and not too expensive.
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

Get a hand mill.
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
Is this grinder considered above or below the Hario Mini Mill?
What's the difference between the Hario Mini Mill and the Hario Skerton?
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?
There is no products from brands. Everything on amazon is from alibaba and every brand is no deeper than a name and maybe a logo.
If you want a trick on Amazon, sort by highest rating and find something that looks good. Then sort by lowest price and look for the pictures, COMPLETELY IGNORING ALL REVIEWS. You'll find a picture that matches exactly the same product that was highly rated, but for less than half the price.
Here is an example:
Here is a third one and probably a more accurate match

Get your dad one of these and a french press.
What about something like this?
manual conical burr grinder
If you're in Salt Lake, there are a lot of good coffee shops up there! My favorites are Publik, Coffee Garden, and Raw Bean Coffee. All three of those shops have some very good coffee. Google is your best friend, if you do some searching you'll come across a lot of super good coffee shops.
I haven't personally tried any local beans, but I know Publik has some great stuff. As far as making your own coffee - I'm partial to the Hario V60, but a French Press or Aeropress are also great. If you want something that makes more coffee, you could pick up a chemex. I've owned all four of those, they're fairly simple and they all make great coffee. I personally use a hand burr grinder that cost $24, here's a link for you. It's nothing super special, but it works for what I use it for. You probably wouldn't want to use it for espresso, but I find that it works great for pourover/french press coffee. The grind is a little inconsistent, but I've still been able to get great results.
As far as ordering beans, I always go through Happy Mug. I've ordered a lot through them, and their stuff has never let me down. Their prices are great, and they have $3 flat rate shipping that takes 2-3 days to get to me. I usually order 3 half-pound bags at a time, those will last me about a month personally. I haven't really branched out past Happy Mug because I've been so happy with what I've received from them, but I know there are plenty of other places to buy from. If you do some searching on this sub you can find a lot of info about online vendors.
I've been eyeing this one for a bit
Do you think the Hario Skerton is better than this [link]
I'm in the market for one too. I'm thinking about this one but I'm interested to hear which one OP has
Depends on where you're located. Peet's Major Dickason blend is well-regarded, and Trader Joe's has some nice selections. Get whole beans because the pre-ground stuff loses its flavor quickly. Burr grinders are ideal. You can get a good mechanical one for a reasonable price. Then you can prepare the fresh grounds with something like an Aeropress, though pour-over drippers have been gaining in popularity and are simpler to use.
I'm assuming this grinder isn't very good? [link]
I am filling the water up to the "4" Line on the maker and I am using 70 grams of beans I believe.
EDIT - Tried again this time with 6 cups and 105 grams. It filled up to the 6! I know for a fact I made 4 last time, I have no idea where the water went. Thanks for the information though!
JavaPresse Manual Coffee Grinder only $12.99 on Amazon
If price is a concern try this one: [link]
I like this one
If you're ok with using a manual, this one has worked very well for me. [link]
I have this one and its given me a consistent grind for the price. Plus it's cheap and durable because there aren't any glass parts.
I can tell you’ve obviously never used a hand grinder. They are much more advanced than you realize. Check out this model on Amazon. I’ve had excellent results with it for years.
This is a total shot in the dark, but my guess would be burr size. In coffee you get a more consistent grind with larger more stable burrs. My guess that is what they are looking for here. Although there is no reason for it to be this big. Larger burrs are harder to turn for sure by hand, many espresso grinders that are hand powered use mechanical advantage in the form of gears.
They make coffee grinders that are small hand cranks (what I would guess would be similar to a domestic use mill), but they also make this bad boy (which would be the equivalent to this absolute unit of a mill).
The cheapest one worth buying at all is this as far as my research goes: [link]
That's only available in the US and I'm based in Europe so I have no first hand experience, but it's well rated for the price.
As long as you're happy spending an extra 2-5 mins grinding coffee before brewing, it is worth it IMO. It will improve the flavour of your coffee quite a lot, unless you're buying freshly ground from a cafe and using it within a few days.
