Battery powered coffee grinder

I need my coffee.

I have a French Press that I use when travelling (motels) but need a way to grind my beans when off the grid.

Thanks.

The smallest of inverters would probably accommodate the small motor and short run times required of a coffee grinder.

The Geo-Pro 19FBS has a 1,000W inverter that will handle our current electric grinder but I'm trying to plan for a worst case scenario.

Several of the places we plan on going will not have electric available.

When in doubt there's always Amazon

Here's a cordless Coffee Grinder on Amazon. Recharges from any USB port.

If that doesn't fit the bill Amazon even has Hand Grinders (look like pepper grinders)

There are a lot of hand crank coffee grinders available. Why would you bother with a powered one? I don't get it. How about an adjustable coarseness hand crank for $20.

Battery powered coffee grinder

I suppose if you don’t want to buy anything. Assuming your tow vehicle has a house hold plug you can use to power your grinder.

That hand crank seems slick though.


I use this to power small items.

grinding coffee beans is way out of my league I find old faithful Folgers classic to work well on the grid or off. Pays to search the web.

But to make Navy coffee with Folgers Classic you need to use like 1/2 cup of ground coffee for every cup of "liquid" coffee....

Good old Folgers dark roast is what I use with my electric coffee maker at home. However, if you are using a french press coffee maker you need very coarse ground coffee. Plus some coffee officianados must have fresh ground. I personally use the coffee grinder at the grocers to use in my french press for my camping coffee.

Is Navy coffee also used for stripping paint? I drank my fair share of Navy coffee and always thought it was great!

I had no idea you also had a GeoPro. Put that in your signature. Makes it easier for us to answer questions when you have one. I should bring along an electric grinder just so I can finally use my inverter. Everything is 12v or propane powered, so never need it.

Well, some people can drink anything. LMAO "Back in the day" when working 12/7 during a 6 month power plant outage I lived off coffee so strong. "How strong was it?" It was so strong that by the end of a shift I had so much coffee built up in my system you could label me "Just add water". By the end of the 6 months I needed to go to "detox".

Lol, if they cremated you, you would turn into instant coffee flakes!

I agree for French press you really need to dial in a course grind. Go with the manual.

You didn't say, but no generator?
We are coffee addicts, and the only thing we use the generator for is the microwave and the espresso machine.

No plug in the truck but I also have a Jackery 1000.

I did go ahead and buy a hand crank grinder, though.
