Yeah, all coffee seems to come in either bags or plastic tubs now.  The cans with the resealable lid were so useful! 
Yeah, illy and kenco and nescafe all have some small tins, but need a bigger tin with a resealable lid.   
There's probably something big in say, costco, but I don't live anywhere near a costco, so I wonder if I could something in a cash 'n' carry?

I was thinking about one of these


Problem is that it’s only 250 grams according to the internet.  It is very resealable.

Are you planning on making proper custard style ice cream?  I’m not a good enough cook for that, I usually end up making the kind that uses condensed milk and tons of heavy cream.

Oh yeah, sorry Jimbo,  just meant, I needed a bigger one to put the ice and salt and that small inside. 

Not proper custard ice cream. Just the kind with cream.  Roll around the coffee cans for ages.   Unfortunately, I don't have the required ingredient of child labour in this recipe, so my husband will have to do.

I suppose if I'm making him be the labour, I probably have to actually find a recipe that is dairy free for him.

Lemon sorbet is perfect and diary free.  All you have to do is make slightly strong lemonade and Bobs your Uncle. 
Funny how those only work properly when flavoured with child labour.  Last time I used it was at a street fair where I had kids lined up to turn the crank or to sit on it.  I must have given out 20 scoops when finished.

This would be my kids at a fair...but at home, OMG no... "mooooooom, do I haaaaaave to? This is soooooo boooooooooring."

Yet, I have pics of them on vacay at Pike Place in Seattle helping a little girl about their age scoop ice for the fish stall. I had to drag them away.

Yes! But the pumpkin spice frappuccino is even better. It tastes like drinking a pumpkin pie (in a good way). Had it for the first time the other day and omg.

I personally would recommend an Iced Caramel Macchiato but with Pumpkin Spice syrup instead of Vanilla (and when you get it and it looks all pretty and layered, you mix it hahha)

Hey Phatbeetle, this is what you need :


If you can get one of those and work out a way to seal it and put the smaller coffee can inside, you'll have the stylingist ice cream maker ever.

If you don't mind instant coffee, these guys sell loads of different flavours!

I've seen Beanies flavours before and they look good! But I wasn't sure if it actually tasted good and was a good instant coffee or just a waste of money. Have you tried Beanies before? Does the flavour advertised really come through?

I’ve had beanies. The flavour is there, but I didn’t like it. The coffee notes weren’t strong for me, so I felt like I was drinking watered down coffee with flavour shoved in. However, I’ve only had one kind and if I catch it on sale I’ll try another. I had amaretto I think, so it could have been the flavour.

Yeah they aren't the cheapest for the size of what you get (and we drink a LOT of coffee) so if it were on sale, I'd be more willing to give it a go. Afraid to spend the money to not like it but it seemed the most flavoured of all the coffees I've seen here!
