Best superfine sieve for grinding spices?

hungry_united | Jun 2, 201912:52 PM     6

Wondering if anyone can recommend a good superfine sieve for grinding spices? I have a cheap set of sieves from India where the mesh is made of thread (nylon maybe) in a metal frame that you can pop into a plastic holder but it is starting to get worn out. Looking online, I found a mention of "lab grade" sieves and a suggestion to get "mesh 30" for grinding my own coriander and cumin, but I haven't been able to settle on a good one and was wondering if anyone had a favorite. We use the Krups coffee grinder to grind the spices.
