Today I remembered the way I altered the pepper grinder. I took it apart and held the base, that still had the handle attached, cupped in my left hand, put the beans in my cupped hand also and turned the handle. Had to turn slow so the beans wouldn't rise up and out of my hand. Nothing ventured, nothing gained ;)
yup just add a little cold water to it
The secret is out......I knew oops would recall the well kept secret. Now don't spread the word around, lets keep it here :mrgreen:

Why don't they share that info when they see someone talking about that style of coffee? How many of you already knew that coffee trick??? (other than Deacon Daren) How many have read a western by Louie L. ? (not I) :o

Did not know that and no, I have not read L Lamour novels but always wanted to. I guess I rather watch John Wayne! :lol:

I almost started reading his books, everyone was saying how well they were written and were true to life type stories.

*My hand raised*..No,I haven't read Louie's books...We learned that in an outing to the Stehekin Valley Ranch(north end of Lake Chelan..fly/boat/hike in only)..for a 'cowboy breakfast' before riding rented mountain bikes down the valley.They take you there for breakfast then drop you up about ten miles to ride(coast) back downhill to town.. :mrgreen:
I took along a pack flyrod for fishing the river on the way down ..caught only small ones..:-(

I didn't, and still don't, know the trick. Is it the fine grind thing or something else? It doesn't take much to confuse me.
