    Bean Scene question. Can someone tell me the name of...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    a piece of equipment I saw in a Bean Scene magazine while drinking coffee in Doncaster shopping centre.

    It was a pressurised container for putting ground coffee in. A smallish container that looked a little like an Aeropress. Ive recently got a subscription to the magazine but it started the month after I saw this piece of equipment.

    Id really appreciate it if someone could tell me the name of it.

    Hi 2mcm

    This is for work when Im using the Aeropress.

    Thanks but I dont think it was either of those. From what I remember it was made of clear plastic and I think it sort of pressed down like an Aeropress. I think it was in Februarys edition. I might be wrong, maybe the coffee shop had several copies from different months. Thanks for looking though.

    Was it a Pressjar? I cant attach a link (commercial non-sponsor). You can Google it.

    Pressjar is an Australian invention that was on the ABC New Inventors. It compresses some of the air out of ground coffee to keep it “fresh” and store it. Unlike Vacuvin which sucks the air and flavour out of the coffee.

    I don’t think many CoffeeSnobs who grind on demmand will be wanting to store ground coffee for much more than 3 minutes.

    Has anyone used a Pressjar?

    Press Jar!

    Many thanks Ajayro. Id be interested to know if anyone has used one.

    I know the 3 minute rule and everything but its just not practical for me to grind at work, even using a hand grinder. With this I could grind some in the Mazzer in the morning and at least take fresh every morning.

    Thanks again Ajayro.

    No problem*G. If anyone has used one, I might be interested too (for the same reasons as you).

    I would like to do some side by side tests with foil bags.

    If you grind into a foil bag, squeeze the air out and zip lock it then I would expect it to work the same as this jar and cost a whole lot less.

    Might be interesting to try some of these types of gizmos sometime.

    I must admit I just use a small (50ml) plastic container with a lid and that works for a few hours,

    Is it the perfect solution?

    Probably not but I get a cup of coffee that is enjoyable at work.
