        Being roasted and not green it poses no threat to local horticulture.

        I would assume it should be fine...but like 2m said, declare it or chance being on border security lol

            Ya and good gass roast... Tape up the vent and does it go as hand baggage or cargo..

            All ya want is it to really gases up and pop...

            If hand baggage, I guess the marshals would grab ya..

            Then toss ya out the back window; as the aroma of real coffee pervades the plane and the passengers revolt ..

                I have been offered a cup of coffee on flights before... After I recover from the effort it takes to not laugh, I give the attendant my "Espresso! My Espresso!" business card...

                  OK slightly different question but didnt think it was worth a new thread.

                  Am travelling interstate tomorrow for a 1 night trip.  Only want to take carry-on luggage.

                  Will pack my Aeropress and have an option of either my Zazzenhaus or the EM0480. Would rather go with power as Ill be in an office the whole time.  

                  Anyone know if Qantas is likely to have an issue with this?

                    I cant imagine why they would.

                    Why not just ring them if you want to know for sure?

                      That would be far too logical for me TG

                      I did read through their dangerous goods information and certainly cant see anything there that would suggest it wouldnt be allowed.

                        No reason for it to be disallowed. Ive carried pre-roasted on flights before without declaring or having a question raised.

                        There can be weight/size restrictions for carry-on - depends on how full the flight is in terms of leniency, so I think youd be better off taking the Zass - its only one night, after all.

                          They wont have a problem with it CJ i did almost the same thing a week ago but with a hand grinder. They didnt even ask to see what it was...i guess they could smell the freshly roasted coffee too

                            From the coffee point of view, youre as good as gold CJ.  As its neither a DG (dangerous good) nor a LAG (liquid, aerosol, gel) youre fine from the air travel side.

                            The grinder (EM or Zass) should not be pinged but ignorance and/or attitude of the security staff may prevail. I wouldnt expect to get something like a whirly blade through though. That obvious and very removable blade would fail the anything that is or could be used as a weapon test.

                              That describes me, but they still let me board.
