    Please recommend a cheap grinder for drip / vacpot

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys.

    I am wanting to get a cheap second grinder specifically for drip/vacpot. As usual, the main suspects are:

    a. Cafe Roma breville $69.95
    b. Russell Hobbs coffee mill $49.95
    c. blade?

    I dont really want to spend any more than $80 so if you have any experience with above grinders or can recommend an alternative please help me out.

    cheers.

    The best cheap grinder is the German made *Emide*.

    (By the way this is a grinder, not a blade spinner).

    What generally happens with cheap grinders is either the motors cant handle the pace and fail (relatively quickly), or the method of adjustment actually doesnt do the job (as in..."adjust" anything).

    The Emide is good in both departments and we have sold heaps over the years including to clients that return to buy secondary grinders for the office, house at the coast, their kids etc.

    Not suitable for pump driven espresso.

    If you like the sound of this it can be purchased from my business for $93.50 plus postage.

    Regardz,
    FC.

    Hi FC

    I just looked at your website for your suggested grinder. I am curious at how it actually looks.

    In your Grinder category, there is a photo of about 6 or 7 grinders all lined up.
    Is it the left-most, white coloured grinder?

    Thanks
