Just spring for a used BUNN.  They are next to indestructible and if you 
get the big one they are not expensive.  They do everything EXCEPT 
espresso.  Check the local restaurant supply stores.  The big ones are 
always looking for a home.

This implies to me (and I've only been geeking out for about three years now, so WTF do I know . . . )that I'm getting fines that are clogging my world up.

I DON'T want to use it for pour-over (or otherwise) because I can dial it in for myespresso, and I can make tiny adjustments day after day based on bean age, weather, etc. and, as I said: it works. If I go spinning the thing three inches to the right to make two cups of drip, then I'm going to burn through a quarter pound of beans to get back to perfect espresso.  You dig?
