My grinder, a Krups GVR2 burr grinder, broke this weekend. I've heard that hand grinders like the one pictured above can produce a fine, Turkish grind. What's your favorite grinder?

News Flash: I ordered the Hario Skelton Mill a few days ago. And, 7lb of Sledgehammer bean from Camp4Coffee Bad news: coffee beans came before the mill. However, I have a mortar and pestle. So, come morning, we'll do the old fashioned thing ad brew up some fresh bean from thin air country.
Hello Crested Butte, CO! Thanks, Al! (that's me and Al Smith, founder of Camp 4 Coffee, in the photo above)
This is how the coffee supply looked in the local health food store before I left Crested Butte a few weeks ago. So, I mail ordered some from the C4C website. Hey, it got here before the mill did. And, I smelled it on the porch all the way from my driveway. Nice!
I returned the defective Krups GVR2 and got a new Starbucks Baratza grinder. It's working fine, but not giving the impression that it wil last years and years. The button on the front is the type that wears out rather quickly, in my experience. But, reading the description on the website is enlightening.
