    I like the Union Bright Note coffee from Waitrose etc so I might get a couple of bags of that.

    Especially if it's going to get very hot and stay hot, it might be nice to have a lighter roast.

    Thanks all for the advice. Finally, any suggestions for how much I'll actually need?

    I'll probably get the beans and do the grind but hopefully I'm not going to be in charge of making the coffee on my wedding day!

    Cheers for your input.

    Great, thanks for that. Hopefully that's what this one is too.

    What kind of grind would I need for it?

    Thanks!

    How do you even go about making coffee in one of those things?

    Would it have to be instant, or would you just make up dozens of cafetieres or hundreds of Aeropress coffees?

    He isn't brimming with personality or charisma, which I think does matter as he comes across a bit emotionless and unenthusiastic.

    He came to prominence for a lot of people by challenging someone (Wiggins) who was generally quite well-liked.

    His riding style is not pretty.

    His tactics - power meter, tempo riding - have come across as boring (obviously not even close to valid after this year's Giro)

    He rides for a very unpopular team.

    He lives in Monaco.

    He is a white Kenyan.

    I think some or all of those have contributed to people finding him hard to warm to, and these are just the legitimate or semi-legitimate reasons.

    The more I see of him, the more likeable I find him though.

    I pity the FDJ domestiques who, having had to drag themselves through the Alps for three days, are now going to have to chase a break all day so that Demare can finish third.

    Should have come with a spoiler alert

    They were having an interesting discussion with Dani Rowe about ways to improve the status of women's cycling, and came up with the theory of mandating World Tour teams to have a women's team.

    I wonder how that would go down with the Bahrain/UAE teams.

    I really don't like the way that cycling is becoming a way of giving some kind of legitimacy to racist or sexist regimes.

    Still, better than the advert for the Apartheid state where it's always sunny.
