[Homeroast] Grinder question

I'm willing to pay for a premium product - several hundred $$.  (What is the
old saying about quality?  If you want quality oats, you should expect to
pay a fair price; if, however, you're willing to accept oats that have
already passed through a horse...)

Currently, I weigh out about 2.5 grams of beans, dump them in the hopper of
a $30 cuisinart burr grinder, grind all of them, then dump the grounds into
the Clever Coffee Dripper, and add a touch over 12 fluid oz of hot water.
About 4 minutes later, I have a mug of coffee.

Then I repeat about a half hour later.

So -- I don't grind that much at a time.  Every now and then (a few times
per year) I will make coffee for guests,  and I'll pull out an automatic
coffee maker (which I plan to upgrade to, say, a Technivorum).  Again, I
weigh out the beans based on how much coffee I plan to prepare, grind them
all, make coffee, and then I'm done.

Hello Phil,

Not much information to go on. What is your price range, how much coffee do
you grind at a time? If you're willing to use a hand grinder, a Lido 3 is
about as good as grinders get.
