    Thank you for the comments and suggestions. Always appreciated.
This and my toaster shot were taken in a last-minute rush as there were only a few entries in the challenge.

As for the grapes. They were there as a very loose reference to the famous quote from John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath:
"No se necesita valor para hacer una cosa cuando es lo único que puedes hacer."

In other words: It was all that I could manage at the time.

    Nicely composed and I can smell the coffee.

    Nice idea, though adding some already ground coffee - and maybe a steaming, freshly-brewed cup - would enhance communication of the aroma. The grapes (?) are a distraction.

    Ahhhh, I was thinking the same idea. Great picture, suits well to the topic, well composed. In my favorites.

    A new twist on "the daily grind". A good shot that interprets the theme.
Why are the grapes in the shot?

    Grapes? I expected to see a bowl with some ground coffee in it. Did you try a shot with the grinding hand in motion? Just wondering. Teetering on the edge of my favs. :-)

    imo, a tighter crop would help. also, lose the grapes, bring the coffee bag into view without reflections on bag.
great subject for the theme. i can smell this more so than the shot of the steaming coffee. in my favorites.

    There is NOTHING like fresh ground coffee!! Maybe a tighter crop? In my TT

    ditch the electrics . a hand grinder gets the beans to your choice and not some distant computer

    This meets the challenge well. I think that the composition can be improved by cropping down to just above the top of the bag. This eliminates the power sockets and the tilted line where wall meets wall. In my tt.
