I have a Cuisinart drip coffee maker... around $99 or so... and a decent burr mill grinder.. hmmm let me look: I forgot, it's a Cuisinart DBM-8 Burr Mill @ $60.
Both are good enough for me.
I think our son's coffee machine was around $700... so not one of those commercial machines that cost thousands.
Yes, this was the coffee grinder I was looking at the other day.
I'd probably get this one cause its more affordable. But I would probably only get it, when the B&B portable grinder dies. Its already lasted many years now surprisingly. But I do admit, it will be nice when I can just simply set the grind, and then it grinds it at the medium level perfectly every time, that would be nice.
Although, you can clearly tell by the picture, it grinds way more coffee grounds then what would be needed. Look at the size of that output reservoir! Thats enough coffee grounds to make what 3 12-cup pots of coffee! How many cups of coffee does that actually make for you Kim, with that grinder full of grounds like that?
