    Tell me about: hand grinders

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Local Italian store has some nice looking brass grinders for $79. Back in the UK I bought pre-ground and used a Gaggia Classic but over here Im using a 6 cup Bialetti and liking the simplicity. Yeah I can buy pre ground here but Id like to keep it old school and get a grinder.

    What sort of thing should I be looking for and anyone know of any bargains in Fremantle?

    Check out the kyocera offered on this site (scroll further down in the grinder section to see the discussion) I use mine for traveling and love it.

    Well so much for keeping it simple. Santa brought me a bag of beans. Which I thought was strange - but I also got an electric grinder made by Cuisineart. Might not be the best but it appears to do the job. Also got given a stainless steel Sunbeam espresso machine (one my wifes boss had but never used!).

    Oh and my Bialetti STILL hasnt arrived...

    1: What sort / model of SunBeam ?

    2: Where were teh beans from ?

    3: Grinder look like a base model, but better than the blade ones getting around..
