    Does anyone have experience w/burr grinders and brand names? I recently fell in love with french press style coffee and would like to improve the quality by grinding beans on the spot. I heard grinding them before brewing makes a ton of difference.

    Mikey Burr and I both have our 26th birthday at the end of August and decided to have a birthday herf (and no, that does not mean we expect a gift). We just want to have a get together with our BABOTL and have a great time celebrating us passing a quarter century in age. It will be held at...

    Didja know? Never reset a burr mill downward (finer) if the motor is not running. When the machine is not running there will likely be some beans or fragments trapped between the burrs. You can damage your grinder by cranking down (finer) and crushing trapped beans when the mill is not...

    Im really starting to get in to coffee and ive heard that burr grinders are the best grinders. So im thinking of buying one, $90 is about my spending limit and i saw this one...

    I went to Wally World today at lunch to pick up a battery for my lawn mower and this GE Burr Grinder caught my eye. Anyone know anything about it? I opened the box and took it apart to get a look at the burrs. It has 2 ring burrs, so I guess that makes it a flat burr grinder? Looks like a good...

    I'm looking to upgrade to a burr grinder from a whilry blade. I guess first question, is it neccesary if I'm not making espresso, just drinking french press coffee? And next question, what's the best bang for the buck in the 100-200 range? I'm assuming the $30-$50 are useless? thanks for the...

    I have been trying different beans lately and just realized that I have had my Cuisinart Supreme Grind for a year and have never cleaned it. Granted I have only used Sbux previously, but I have some beans from local roasters that I am about to try and I have a batch of Carribean Cut-Throat...

    I'm trying to get away from the whirly blade so I can get a more uniform grind, but I've had no luck with the burr grinders that I've tried. The first was about a year ago (I forget the brand) but I took it back. Even at the coarsest setting, it ground up so much dust that my press coffee pot...

    I've settled on the Krups GVX1 grinder. Seems to get pretty good reviews on coffeegeek.com. Anyone have experience with this brand/model? I should be able to get it for $50.

    Need to upgrade to a burr grinder asap. Or at least until December when someone can get it for me as a present. :D Been thinking that I might want an old fashioned hand crank grinder. I've read that the Zassenhaus brand is supposed to be very high quality. Besides having to operate it...

    Ok, so I'm relatively new to coffee, and I'm slowly working my way up the chain. Drinks Folger's. Drinks Starbucks. Buys Gourmet fresh-roasted. <--- I am here. Roasts own beans. Grows own beans. One of the requirements for this step is, of course, a good grinder. Up until now, I was using...
