Hey all - this is a great value on a Burr grinder. It's on clearance at most Targets in the Minneapolis area for $50 to $70. I picked one up today for $49.98, normally $100.
Burr grinders are the preferred method for grinding beans. They produce a more consistent grind size, which in turn produces a more consistent cup of coffee. They are leagues ahead of of the slash and burn type blade grinders which just cut the beans into a mish mash of dust to large grains. This burr grinder is by no means top of the line, but if you can get it at $50 this is a no brainer for anyone that is looking to start grinding their own beans.
If you are new to producing quality coffee, you should check out the Aeropress. It's a simple way to make a great cup, for not much money or effort. I'm affiliated in no way, I just think people should drink great coffee.
