Want to move on from ground coffee, I'm an espresso fan who's not made of gold, so I assume I'm looking for a burr grinder that isn't too expensive,

Recommendations greatly appreciated.

    Krups ones on Amazon for £30 - they seem to work well. I can't imagine you'll find an electric one for cheaper.

    Top tip - if you like the starbucks coffees, getting a starbucks card entitles you to a free tall coffee with any bag of beans. I don't normally buy their coffee beans, but often get a tall latte when on the go. This way I can buy beans cheaper than in the supermarket (as I was going to have the coffee anyhow).

    i have a krups one (no idea which model)
    its adjustable for finer/ coarser grinds depending on your prefered brewing method.
    and you can set how much it grinds (quantity)

    I couldnt imagine my life without it now /hyperbole

    sod the grinder I like the convenience of my Nesspresso.

    I'm sure they're great. I just don't fancy turning a £20 expenditure into a £200 one. Plus my sis in law brought me a bulk load of beans from her trip round South America.
