Coffee grounds on vacation

Ground Coffee

Coffee degrades over time. Depending on the surface area it will degrade faster. Therefore coffee grounds should be stored in airtight containers. Still, they go stale in days. This process speeds up under conditions of high temperature, light, or high humidity.

So, what do you do when you go on vacation and forgot clips or other things at home (like I typically do...)? As you can see on the little picture, I use a fork. It looks funny but does the trick. And I also try to buy half pound packages so that I use the coffee ground more quickly.

Of course, the quality of the resulting coffee is still not getting to close to what a Jura can produce, but it normally suffices for me...
