My favourite brand of coffee these days is Percol’s Black & Beyond and I have recently had trouble finding it in my local supermarkets (and in some cases not so local). So as a result I decided to buy a pack of Percol’s Black & Beyond whole bean coffee. I’ve not used beans for a while, so though I do have an electric grinder, my son got out the manual coffee grinder. If you have ever watched Dances with Wolves you will know what it looks like. I’ve never actually used it, and remembering the film, I thought it would take a while to grind the coffee. In the end it was quicker than I thought it was going to be. It didn’t do a fine grind, you wouldn’t want to use it in an espresso machine, but for a cafetiere it was okay. The coffee was really good and as a result I might keep getting beans now and again.
