I could but it's become a sort of morning ritual to roast then grind it, it's much better freshly done. I'll have a go on that GSI one I reckon thanks for your help guys

cheers

I have one of the type that are a small wooden box with a hand powered crank. They work fine - about 9" cubed. I can take a picture if it helps.

If your hiking and carrying your kit for any distance then 500 grams on a grinder alone seems a bit crazy to me.

If you're car camping then weight isn't really an issue so why not bring your one from home?
If it needs 240v then bring an inverter.

Would a mouli hand grater work? Very light and you can pick them up from car boots, charity shops, eBay, etc. for peanuts. I haven't tried one but I guess it could work and if it doesn't than you haven't wasted much cash.
