Humble Pie | The Daily Post


Tell us about a time you found out after the fact that you’d been mistaken and you had to eat a serving of humble pie.

Once upon a time…

…I thought that coffee bags were one of the greatest solutions to problems that didn’t exist…

…but I love my coffee…

…and I’m always a sucker for a competition, more so if it doesn’t require much else from me than liking or commenting on a Facebook page…

Imagine my surprise to find myself the proud owner of six boxes of Jed’s #5 “bean bags”…extra strong….mmmmm….DSCF9025

Comes in a simple biodegradable box…DSCF9402

Tear-open foil bag…not quite so biodegradeable…but that’s the price of sealed-in flavour…there aren’t actually bean inside but fine ground grounds…

DSCF9026-001

“Bean bag” with a dunky string attached…haven’t broken one so far…the ‘trick’ is apparently to give the bag a little pinch/squeeze once it is saturated to facilitate the transfer of flavour…
DSCF9027-001

All done…ready to go…

I must humbly admit that having now tried these “bean bags”, they are pretty damn useful…rich, full flavour…plunger coffee without the mess…and handy for on the road…

One my free stash runs out, I’ll be adding Jed’s bean bags to the shopping list…

  2. Genius! I got used to Instant Coffee while in prison, but the grounds often wind up everywhere and it can make a mess. This sounds like a great idea. 🙂

  3. I was a real latecomer to the world of real coffee…until 2000, so far as I was concerned, a real coffee only had two qualities: it had to be hot and it had to be black. It was only when I was looking after my sister while she was in hospital after a serious MVA and I started to hang with some of her friends, that I was introduced to the cafe world. Even then it was only when we got a proper coffee machine in 2011, that I got more interested in the actual making of the brew. Up to that point, while not overly keen on powdered instant coffee, I would happily live with the granulated variant. The coffee machine is gone now but I have a coffee syphon that I am slowly psyching myself up to try…

    I know what you mean about the grounds – resolved that for the most part when the coffee machine was here by using the knock bucket thing, the grounds from there going into a bucket where they were mixed with ground eggshells to go on the garden. The grounds are the worst part of plunger coffee as I can never seem to fully purge them from the sink or the dishwasher and they always seem to get transferring to other dishes…the coffee bags certainly take care of that!!
