    Temporary Quality Grinder at Reasonable Cost

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys,

    Im overseas for a few months in NZ, and looking to buy a grinder that can do the honours, whilst being relatively cheap, so that its no big deal if i cant sell it by the time i move on again to Europe

    Some have suggested looking at the second hand market, but i wondered if you giys could please recommend a good budget grinder. i use a few brewing techniques; moka-pot being the finest, to french press being the most course.

    a little research on the european websites led to finding a fellow ceramic based hand grinder called the Bellux Hand Grinder, available from around just over $50 (exc postage)

    Yes, but the flight over to pick it up could be expensive - they dont deliver outside the UK. ;)

    Hi,

    Mark sent me a Kyocera grinder to try out a while back. Unfortunately, I misplaced it and am yet to finish a thorough review on it. From my early use of it, though, I have to say that french press brews with it had more sediment in them than with any other grinder than I can remember and became bitter after standing; presumably due to the sediment.

    For the brewing methods that you have specified, I think that a second-hand commercial flat burr grinder will probably give the best bang for buck, though it will be big. You might need to replace the burrs.

    Cheers,
    Luca
