Grinder recommendations for drip coffee

GOJIRA | May 1, 2014 11:17 AM

So my parents' keurig just broke after a year of use, but they were lucky enough to get a refund. I saw this as an opportunity to improve their coffee. Knowing them, they wouldn't like to use a gooseneck kettle (they would probably refuse to believe slow pouring will make the coffee better), so I got them a Clever Coffee Dripper as there is no pouring technique involved. I want to take it one step further and get them a grinder for freshly ground coffee. Any recommendations?

Should I go manual or electric? Many suggest to get the best grinder you can afford but I believe this advice is mostly for espresso drinkers. They dont drink espresso nor do they have an espresso machine, so a uniform, fine espresso grind from a $1000 grinder is unnecessary. So far, im thinking of buying the Orphan Espresso Lido 2 manual grinder which is $175. Any other recommendations? I would like to keep this under $300.
