Coffee on the cheap

It’s possible to make pretty decent coffee for a surprisingly low price. Some people swear by plunger coffee – which is an acquired taste (I think) – but finding a cheap grinder is perilous. Grinders are important. Hand grinders are great – but they’re labour intensive – I’ve often thought about attaching a drill to mine as an experiment – and Make Magazine has beaten me to it… but they used a pepper mill – which I think is probably not as effective as a hand grinder.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

  1. I much prefer to drink plunger coffee at home because I can’t make a good enough latte myself.
    I also love my hand grinder – but I did pay $80 for it, and it is a pain when you are making coffee for more than three people.

  2. I’m kind of forced to go plunger…

    I was aghast when presented with an coffee made from instant in hot milk in country Wales recently!!

  3. I was aghast when I started a job in a coffee shop once and that’s how they made their coffee.
