Ok Simon, I don't know you but you seem like a real fun guy.

Notice anything new ?

You have a collection of questionable tampers....what were you thinking.
You drink takeaway coffee from brands and keep their cups in a worship memorial.....rememberence of how the mighty can fall.
Your significant other is secretly very angry at you for hogging so much of the kitchen space for your coffee shrine. Imagine peeling potatoes hunched over a small sink.......oh what a naughty boy.
You enjoy the distance between the grinder and your machine as it lets you sprinkle grounds that inadvertently spill everywhere thus marking this space as the shrine.
Is there something missing.....did someone say......acacia scales, or should there be a heat shield protecting the grinder hopper from the cooktop elements in summertime ?

Hope you enjoy your new grinder.

Stop, stop... I have tears!! 

I noticed the swanky new grinder Simon.  Kudos! 

Now seriously... why all the tampers?

Hahaha hilarious... such a poetic and brilliant post! XD

Alot of it's just stuff I had laying around, just prettied up the area haha. Does look shrine-like huh!

The tampers are as follows: the first is a convex tamper I bought many moons ago, for some unknown reason! Second is one from my old workplace they gave me as a gift. Third is a 58mm tamper. And the one on the mat is a 58.5mm Pullman which I actually use ;).

The takeaway cups I'm not too sure, I just had them, and stacked them!

Haha we do have lots of other bench space around, although I have taken up that whole corner, but my girlfriend is very understanding and supportive of the insanity :)

And I sprinkle it like pixie dust whilst prancing about! XD nah they just fit nicely there, and I like having distance between machine and grinder, don't want any possibility of moisture near the grinder!

And no Acacia, but Hario scales :)

Now that I look back at it, it is quite ridiculous!

And thank you :)

The end :)

Hahaha I quite enjoyed the post too, tampers just tended to build up without warning or announcement of any kind, either that or it's part of a coffee-based juggling act!

And I strongly considered some sort of shield... but when that stove gets a-usin' that tamper goes a-cruisin'!
