Topic: pre ground (6 msgs / 83 lines)
1) From: Jonathan Parungao
Other than bringing my Rocky to work, I have to grind coffee before I go to
work.  What is the best way to brew pre ground coffee?  It'll be about 4
hours old by the time I brew it.  I make a french press pot and put it into
my thermos before work, but it's only 16 ounces and I really don't want to
lug any more than that with me.  I can stretch it to last all day, but
that'll only be one sip an hour probably.  So I have to make some at work.
We do have coffee here, but it's starbucks from a dirty, not cleaned in 5
years, literally, whirly blade.

I grind at home and put the grounds in a Vacuvin container, pump out
the air, take it to work.  When I'm ready for a cup, I release the
valve, scoop 2 scoops of grinds into my AeroPress, add hot water,stir,
plunge, add more hot water to cup and am treated to a delicious cup of
coffee in about 30 seconds. Then I replace the Vacuvin lid and pump
out the air with another pump I have at work.
Vacuvin from Amazonhttp://sweetmarias.com/prod.brewers.shtmlGood luck.">http://www.amazon.com/Vacu-Vin-Coffee-Saver-Starter/dp/B00005AS52/ref=pd_bbs_5/104-8821874-7177548?ieF8&s=home-garden&qid75661061&sr=8-5AeroPress from SMshttp://sweetmarias.com/prod.brewers.shtmlGood luck.

Be a hero; clean the work grinder. Just two minutes with a dry cloth or
paper towels and it will be shining. A whirly blade is not better than most
other grinding methods - but it is definitely better than nothing.

MichaelB, I could be the hero like you suggest, but no thank you.  It goes
through about 250 - 300 grams of char each day.  That'll be too hard to keep
up with.  I'd be doing all their work for them to make my 3 cups.  Ann, I'll
look into the vacuvin and I do one day want to try the aeropress along with
a santos one day.  Thanks for the links.  They sell them at a store in
Pasadena and we make it out there once in a while.

Here is another way to keep the O2 away from the grounds, all of it.  Nitrogen is heavier than air (O2 
and N2 mostly), so at the big box or paint store they sell cans of Nitrogen for keeping that half can of 
paint from forming the impenetrable skin.  Buy a can and just fill your baggie with the inert gat, seal up 
and quit worrying about oxidation.
