Best grinder for French Press

warneral | Mar 5, 2010 07:11 AM

Hello all! I am wanting to grind my own beans. I'm looking for a grinder that can give consistently coarse grind. I've been searching CHOW, epinions, coffeegeek and amazon. It doesn't seem like any of the Burr grinders (at least any 200 or under) make everyone happy!

So if you have a grinder that you are happy with - which provides consistent coarse grind (and not too much dust), let me know what you have.

I'd love to spend under 150 but if 200 is the only way to get a good one, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

I did read through a CHOW thread from some time ago about an inexpensive burr grinder for FP but didn't see any conclusive answer!

I'm about ready to buy a cheap blade grinder and do the shake and pulse method and cross my fingers :D

Want to stay up to date with this post?
