COFFEE GRINDING: Reader Thom Hill writes: “Did you buy the KitchenAid burr grinder?”

Nope, it was too pricey. I wound up going with this one instead. Seems to work very well, and it’s much quieter — more of a low rumble as opposed to the circular-saw whine of my old blade-type grinder.

UPDATE: Catching up to InstaPundit, the Wall Street Journal has an article — subscription only — on coffee grinders today. It says the KitchenAid is best overall, but they liked the Capresso for the money. That’s pretty much the InstaPundit reader consensus, too. They also liked the Solis Maestro, which occupies an intermediate position.
