Hi Michael,

I do both the brew, Technivorm and espresso and my grinder I use is a Rocky.  It isn't stepless and I can easily tweak back and forth between 5-9 for espresso and 13-14 for drip and I do go back and forth, when I make coffee to take to work for my night shift and a couple of tasty espresso shots before my two hour drive to work.

Chris, what grinder are you using now that produces less fines?  Anybody 

else?  Seems like this topic always gets dominated by the "Dark Side" 

espresso guys.  I'm interested in a good, no, make that excellent grinder 

for brewing.

 I changed my brewing to the shortest cycle I know of,  the Aeropress, to 

compensate for the overextraction of fines in other, longer cycle brew 

methods, but I'd like to get a better grinder FOR BREW, and try other 

methods again.
