    Fantastic - just add Frisco or Ricofee, some powdered milk and you are good to go.

    Gee I wish I had thought of that.

    Dirk is about to tell us about the grinder.
    The bushbaby range at Checkers is quite a lot cheaper: https://www.checkers.co.za/All-Depar...e/p/10279820EA

    Their gas refills are also worthwhile.

    I don't make coffee literally at the side of the road that often, I usually do the flask thing.

    As part of my coffee making arsenal I have a Bialetti, though it's a very small one and at some point I want to also get a bigger at least 2 proper mug one. I use it at home and sometimes when camping.
    I then also have a Aeropress.

    I've been eying this for a while now, a level up from just making coffee before hand in the normal Stanley flask https://www.stanley1913.com/products...39681649836091

    A uncle of mine has a little stove very similar to a Jetboil which is awesome, he bought it something like 20 years ago for R99. I would love a Jetboil, but can't justify the price yet.

    This is the hand grinder I use.

    Then I have a Bialetti and a number 3 Cadac with a single ring. No, the Bialetti doesn't quite fit on the ring properly, half sits on the burner itself, but it works, very fast. This Cadac is also used for cooking, and what with a refill costing about R100 its a whole lot cheaper than these compact Camping Gaz type things. I don't have a photo of the Bialetti on the Cadac, but they are both in the same pics below.

    So, what does coffee spell backwards? It's what I don't give until I've had my coffee.

    Naes is Sean backwards, and it sounds like 'nice', so I drive a nice Landy.

    Replaced my Alva with one of these. Works great. Buy 2 if you can. That price can't be beaten.

    Wait for Makro specials. Sometimes you get 5 for R100 - last time I bought was 2 years ago, and I still have left. So not sure about the price now.

    As mentioned before, a hand grinder (ceramic) and bialetti comes out tops for taste. I also fill the flask with hot water and just take my aeropress and some ground beans for a quick cuppa.

    Its cute that you think a Bialetti makes proper coffee.

    This is the only hand held way to make proper coffee next to the road.
