  • Coffee Bags

    The missus came home with some Robert Timms Italian Style coffee bags to use at work, on offer at Coles $4.82 for 28 bags. They made quite a pleasant cup, good enough in an emergency, or to take on holiday if you don't want to cart any paraphernalia with you.

    (I'll take the bait)

    The coffeebags are a bit of an upgrade to instant coffee satchels (although many have used instant and grounds to keep the weight/volume down and speed the process up).

    Coles are doing them at half price with a limit of 12 but even so, they are $30/kg (instead of the whopping $60+/kg they normally are)

    For me travelling anywhere, the Aeropress and a Stainless Filter are the first things packed, even if you pre-grind fresh coffee at home it's an improvement on all the other convenience coffee options. Weighs not very much, is x-ray friendly in carry-on baggage and I've never had any reason not to take it with me on aircraft and even motorbikes in a backpack.

    All you need is a kettle.

      Only $60+ per kilo? Not quite up there with pods at $100+ per kilo! Kind of puts in perspective what a bargain the Grange Hermitage (Yemen) available here on Beanbay at $35 per kilo is. Or the freshly roasted Espresso wow @$32.
      However, getting back to the convenience factor a stovetop and small hand grinder is my choice when travelling. The coffee bags just taste too stale to me.

        I haven’t been able to touch a hotel room kettle since learning that people boil their soiled underwear in them. Ouch!

              It's amazing what bored squaddies can get up to. I wouldn't get paranoid about it.

                  Always take a V60 when travelling but have never stopped to wonder about people washing undies in the kettle! Some people have too much time on their hands.

                    I hope no one has made coffee at the Bluebird Hotel in England

                      Reminds me of the Austin Powers scene where he samples the “brew”. “It’s a bit nutty...”

                        Agree with Andy, the AeroPress is awesome for travelling. Light and indestructible.

                        I am yet to order just a hot water on a plane flight when they do the coffee and DIY AeroPress brew on the fold out table!!

                        I normally take beans and hand grinder but have also taken ore ground in a few zip lock bags.

                        Cheers
