    Lol. You cannot taste the difference. It doesnt matter. People obsessing over this stuff and wasting big $$ is hilarious. 10 dollar blade grinder is exactly the same. So is buying preground powder.

      Yep. OP needs to take the money he is spending on an overpriced hand grinder and spend it on a less overpriced electric.

      The convenience is definitely worth the undetectable marginal quality loss

      Its a big difference when making espresso actually. An even grind will make very smooth and velvety shot with a layer at the top called “Crema”

      See pics for details.

      Both good and bad code run. But we all know good code is just much nicer overall.

      The difference between good and great code is not 2*

      Meh. Let people enjoy what they want. I’m sure you have a hobby where you get higher quality stuff than the average person because you like that said hobby/interest.

      For example, I love fashion so I try to get unique designs from boutiques as well as Gucci, Moncler, etc.

      It's like Vitamix vs Ninja

      It’s not worth the effort every morning. I have a hand and it’s a pain. Would much rather have an electric that gives lower quality grind. Will be ordering one soon

      OP
      Do you have any of those I listed above and don't like or something?
      A quality grinder puts consistent grind and look for r/coffee

      OP
      That's the point. People often surprise on the $500 Vitamix but it's worth it. For me it's quality over the cost.
      $200 might sound obnoxious but often it's comes with premium, the quality.

      Baratza Encore. Burr grinder well rated by coffee snobs, has like 40 different settings from super fine to course (including aeropress recommended).

      Yes people go after the brand name and buy $hit. Get the most expensive grinder.

      If you care about coffee any grinder which produces homogeneous size would do.

      Areopress is awesome! Make such a nice cup when no time for the French press or a long pore

    I have a kitchenaid electric grinder. It was $10 about 15 years ago. Coffee beans have oils in them that can impact metal so whatever you choose make sure it's easy to clean regularly.

      The Burr material is cermaic is what I'm looking for. Anything I should look for

      There are arguments for having the beans ground consistently in a batch. A lower quality grinder doesn't provide the same cut accuracy across each coffee bean. It also depends how the coffee will be prepared: French press versus a classic drip coffee would require a different grind.

    OP, I have a lot of experience with this. PM me for details.

    Coffee bean quality is about 100x more important than your grind. If you’re using mediocre beans, you’re going to get mediocre coffee no matter your grind.

      ^ this + use a decent expresso machine or hand pour.

    This is what a lot of experienced baristas swear by. It’s amazing.

    I like my ceramic mill from Hario, I think it’s the skerton model.
