    Honestly, the OE lido blasts through an incredible amount of beans with little effort, especially at a corse grind. But if you must have power...

    Space is not a issue. I am typically at a rented house or room with electricity

    I just replaced the adjustment ring in my Baratza Preciso. Discovered during a bored Sunday in which I decided to strip the machine. Gotta say...these grinders are incredibly simply, and the parts are pretty easy to get via Baratza. I don't know how the higher end grinders are, but I'm now more impressed than I initially was.

    Point? Get a refurbished Baratza.

    My Baratza Virtuoso has been unblinking after 18 months of daily use. By my rough maths, at least 2 cups every day It's taken me through over 1000 coffees.

    I stumbled upon a few more interesting manual grinder brands, for those in the hunt. Portable and kitchen models included.

    Kanso Coffee
    Kinu Grinders
    Helor Coffee

    We have a cuisinart burr grinder of some sort. I’m happy with the grind. What I’m not happy with is the static levels of what comes out and the misdirected grounds, both on the countertop and sneaking behind the filter and clogging the output from the cone as a result (we use a moccamaster). It also seems to arbitrarily clog up and need a cleaning, which is a pita when there’s a hopper full of beans. I may be doing the trick with the rice. Any recos on a moderately priced burr grinder that doesn’t do the above unhappiness causing things would be appreciated. It will only get replaced when it breaks.

    I've had a KitchenAid for a long while now, would definitely recommend...

    only complaint would be the glass cup that catches the ground coffee...super thin glass easily broken (twice before I just started using the lower glass part of a tupperware container). The upper glass bin (that holds the beans) is much thicker glass...

    I received a Breville SmartGrinder as a gift a year or so ago and it does a great job. When I’m in the purist and zen mode or I need to be quiet in the morning, I go back to my Hario hand grinder.

    repeat of above recommendation: refurbed Baratza, or a new one. I have a basic model that wasn't more than $100-125 or so. It's been bullet proof every day, several times a day for a few years now. Inventory varies with the refurbs but they seem to have some stock now

    if we are posting about durability ... I picked up a rancilio rocky around 2005. its seen almost daily use since then and there is not a hint of trouble. I'm probably weak on the grindz but drop some every once in a while.

    I'll second the kitchen aid.

    Not the grinder for espresso lovers who need a fluffy fine grind, but delivers a good grind for french press to aeropress. Nicely made and a pleasure to use. I like the way it looks.

    The Baratza probably delivers a better grind, but is huge and feels cheap.

    The time has come to bury my Porlex hand grinder. I believe we have used this puppy for a solid ten years and it's great until it is not.
    Since much water has passed under the bridge it seems prudent to ask the audience.
    We need a hand grinder to use while Glamping in the travel trailer. Let's assume no electric grinders and hold the price under $200 clams.

    Two of these are at your threshold of payment pain. Kinu Hand Grinders

    My Apollo is still amazing, but about the same price as the expensive Kinu, so it's out.

    Here is a side by side comparison of a lot of grinders from cheap to expensive.

    Thanks Eric. It feels like we are getting taken for a ride.
    Hario Skerton Pro Hand Grinder < Ordered. I'll report back. Hopefully I'm not going to buy twice to get a really good hand grinder.

    Can’t help with hand grinders. We got an oxo burr grinder a while back after the cuisinart died. Love the oxo for making drip. It can be adjusted for size of grounds, but we don’t mess with that once we set it up. It has a stainless cup for the ground coffee that is grounded to the chassis, so there is minimal static buildup. Runs on a timer, so I had to figure weight of finished ground coffee. You’ll need two pushes of the button to make a full pot. That takes just under a minute. Easy to clean with the white rice method. Grinder blade comes out easily enough if deeper cleaning is needed.

    Just went thru this, ended up with a ROK open box from WLL. Really a nice conical grinder, maybe better than the commercial grinder I use at home. That coupled with a used LaCimbali Domus, and I have great coffee in the trailer.
    Josh, you weren't camped at Red Wing by chance, were you?

    That ROK is neat but pretty large.
    No, we were at Michaux this past weekend and until today. Too hot to enjoy it for a few days.
    *What the heck is WLL...I'm probably going to regret asking.
