coffee grinders

I have a small 'cup at a time' coffee maker and am looking for suggestions for a small coffee grinder. According to Consumer Reports, there are two styles of grinders, burr and blade style. After researching the burr style a bit more, it seems like those are just big grinders, having capacities of 8-18 cups of coffee per grind. I have no need of that much ground coffee at one time. And it seems to me that grinding just a few beans in such a large machine will lead to a) inconsistent grind and b) a messy transfer to the coffee maker. The blade style grinders are supposed to be less consistent but are cheaper and slightly smaller (still too much ground coffee for my needs). Any suggestions from the Chowhound crowd? Is there a small burr style grinder that my internet fu is too weak to find?
