Great for cramping, but unless your into hardcore arm workouts it's not something you'll want to do on a daily basis. Also these specific ones will break eventually. There's a plastic nut securing the central shaft to the ceramic which will eventually strip. Mine just did after maybe 75 uses.

Yep they totally suck. If you can get an older metal one then you would be better off. But they are a lot of work for sure.

I had a Hario grinder. Took forever to grind enough. Especially if you want it fine. With a Hario you can mod it to use an electric drill though.

Just got rid of our Keurig and went back to a normal coffee maker. This shits over my head.

I'm looking for coarse grind for cold brew. I'll look at electric burr grinders .

I have had the Cappresso burr grinder for the last 5 years and it has been great. https://www.google.com/search?q=capress ... e&ie=UTF-8

For coarse cold brew I've been just using one of those food Ninjas. My wife bought one years ago and really didn't use it much. The only use it gets now is for grinding beans, though it is only good for cold brew. It's perfect for that. The grind isn't fine enough for drip coffee.

The only thing I dislike about it is if you use beans that have a lot of flavor coating on them it will stick to the inside of the hopper.

With hand grinders, there is Hario and there’s everybody else.
They are a lot of work if you use a lot of coffee, but you can control the grinding coarseness much better than with blade grinders.

More in general, there are many aspects that go in the quality of the coffee:
- the beans
- the blend (usually single origins are very hip but the flavor profile is very unbalanced)
- the roasting (depends on taste but chemically speaking both very light roasts and very dark roasts do not extrapolate all the complex flavors and aromas)
- the freshness (if you roast in house the best coffee in the world then leave it in a bag for three weeks, and I roast an average coffee and use it after one day, mine will be much better)

Another vote for Capresso. I've been using one for about a year. Doesn't look like much but uses high quality burrs and is simple to use. No burr grinder beats it for the cost........ currently the silver version is $68 on Amazon. Can go fine enough for decent Espresso.

I bought my dad a Baratza Encore, and it is very good for about double the $$ of the Capresso and has a higher quality feel. Holds a lot more beans in the hopper..... but I like the timer on the Capresso. Baratza is manual on/off. Baratza is also about twice the size.

Use a Capresso as well. I like the concept of the pour over and sometimes do it (just did it this morning as a matter of fact), but think I like our Cuisinart drip machine more than anything else

Thanks for the input. Gonna have to chew on this for a bit. Lots of choices.
What coarseness is right for pour over? I’ll research that.

Usually around medium - like sea salt sized........ but this vary's depending on how you are filtering. A paper filter sitting directly in a Chemex slows down the drip as most of the sides of the paper are against the glass. I use a metal holder with a screen which I place the paper filter in, so the drip goes faster.... so I use a finer grind than with a filter directly in a Chemex.

Grind size is all about how long you have water exposure. Better grinders yield more even grounds so you have more predictable results.

I have one of those and it's a pain in the ass, but I keep it around for my hurricane kit in case we lose power.
