    Indeed, but a 1kg of beans lasts me nearly 2 months!

    Plus, it's just me, I don't like any form of wastage, or foodstuffs lying around the house that aren't used, and taking up space. I don't do 'failed experiments'... It's rather like hi-fi equipment: if I've got it, it gets used or it's out the door. I'm no hoarder.

    Not a bad idea, so will bear that in mind

    I'm also reluctant to make too many mistakes [stuff that doesn't deliver the right taste], and end up with jars full of coffee beans I'll never use...

    I found my daily beans a while back. Then I changed my machine and my grinder and the search begins again....

    How come coffee tastes much better on the continent and tea tastes worse

    Just a thought

    Bottomless version. After one swig.

    Imagine typing something into an autocorrection parser that can do better than you intend.
