    For what it's worth my Baratza was a refurb and looked/ preformed/ was packaged like a brand new one.

    A refurbed Virtuoso is winging it's way to me now. Most excited.

    The Baratza Virtuoso is a thing of beauty. And had there not been a card inside declaring otherwise, I would not have even guessed it was a refurbished unit.

    My vote: OE Lido 2.

    Hand grinder
    Good burrs
    Heirloom quality

    Perfect for my 1-4 cups a day.

    I just picked up a Bodum blade grinder for my new Chemex. Not the best for fancy stuff, but I am enjoying a nice fresh cup everyday now because of it. #lowexpectations

    This is a good point- I've been up for an hour and have pulled 5 doubles. Use will play a lot into need. If I used it less, my Bodum would have probably lasted quite a few years longer.

    Another vote for the Baratza Virtuoso. Great grinder. Mine has been going strong for years ... works well for Hario / chemex style pour overs. Haven't explored expresso grinds but I'm strongly considering the acquisition of an espresso makers! ;)

    Hey Cookie, the short bean hopper from the Mini will fit that Super Jolly. They're about 30 bucks at Espresso Parts. Might get you under the cabinet.

    I've barely been home the last few weeks with work travel, but my wife officially approves! Substantially easier to use and tweak than our previous machine, and seems to generate far less static mess as well. We've got the pour-over setting well dialled in (her morning vice), I'm starting to refine where I like my press(es) and cold brew settings. Overall a definite winner, and very satisfied so far.

    So the HG-1 arrived today. It's pre-adjusted and so far I've seen no reason to tweak. The burrs are not seasoned, but after following the super-easy assembly instructions, I ground the fluffiest pile of espresso I've ever seen. Whether it packs well or leaves blond shooters is unknown at this point -- the espresso machine won't arrive for another 7 weeks or so, leaving me to just do pourovers with a gold filter.

    Usually, my commercial espresso grinder leaves me with a bunch of retained grounds to sweep out, and a muddy if tasty cup. This was a whole 'nother beast -- nearly zero grind retention and a perfectly clear cup without using a paper filter. Amaze-O. It took a minute+ to grind, and I can vouch that it provides a workout, at least until the burrs settle in. However, I won't go back to an electric grinder unless someone figures a commercial mod for this. It's a blast and the results are bliss.

    Fab that you got the HG-1. I've been looking at this for over a year now since it was first announced. Maybe even two. I just couldn't rationalise it.

    Man it is a beautiful bit of kit. Pictures please!

    Lately i've been on a 100% simplicity kick. I havent used my espresso machine or electric grinder in months (i've got a pretty respectable set-up too), but have been favoring the simple Prolex hand grinder and Chemex pot. The new weekend ritual is wake up early before the wife and kids turn the house into a playground, put a pot of water on the stove, and hand grind some fresh beans. Into the stainless filter on the chemex. let the water cool about half a minute off boil. quick pour to saturate grounds, another half minute hold for bloom. finish pour. enjoy. no electricity used. simple is good sometimes. inexpensive way to get really good coffee.

    locally roasted, fresh beans are the key.

    I'm late to this dance, but +1 on the Mazzer Mini. Probably over-kill if you're not into espresso based drinks, but mine is going on 10 years trouble free and the fine adjustments are are really plus if you are married to the golden rule (as I am;-)

    T.K. and I used one of those during a trip to France. Those things are a pure joy.

    Necro thread revival.

    I need a grinder for travel. This is for French Press. I drink alot of coffee so a hand grinder is out.

    Refurb. Barzata still the way to go?

    I just ordered a refurbed Baratza Virtuoso for my parents because we like ours so much and their current grinder is awful (and we hate using it when we visit)...
    Not particularly travel friendly though?

    For French press you can use a hammer. But depending on what you are doing and where you are going, is the grinder going to be bigger and heavier than a bag of ground coffee? If so, just pre-grind the coffee before you leave and leave the grinder at home.
