Hi

Discovered the site while doing some research into a replacement grinder - still haven't found one, but found you lot!

Had a little Bodum electric grinder that died this morning, and use a standard filter coffee machine (but loving that timer for fresh coffee as soon as I wake up!)

Like to experiment wth different bean blends, and use a great little shop that indulges our experiments.

Coffee is always black, always piping hot, but I confess, at work it is always instant.

One day would love a chemex coffee maker.

Welcome anniemac

 

You're at the right place

 

Brand is not important but having a burr grinder is.

Spend as much as you can on a quality grinder (there are some good deals under £150 all in as well)

 

Have you considered an aeropress for work or a plunger?

Highly recommend Iberital MC2 (doserless vsn @ ~£100). I spent a couple of months trying to find a good grinder (I'm a newbie to this so didn't want to spend hundreds!).

I got it from Scott at HappyDonkey. Very reasonable price and I'm very pleased with it so far - only downside is that some grinds get left in shute after grind - but nothing a pat on the back of the machine doesn't sort out.

For the money I think it's probably the best you can get.

Also handy is a toothbrush for removing the grinds...
