Prior to these threads I thought I was a coffee snob. $380 minus 15 bucks for a blade grinder I can get anywhere, equals 365 I can spend on yet another mod for my Triumph.

I like the grind that comes out of my can of coffee, takes less counter space.

We also have the Rancillo burr grinder, along with a Pavoni espresso machine (for me and hubby) a stove top espresso jug (for the daughter who wants VOLUME!). Here's the math. One pound of locally roasted coffee $13, 8oz of Illy ground in a can $14. By my estimation the $350 I spent on the Rancillo was paid for within a year, simply by buying better coffee, cheaper. We grind our way through five pounds of coffee a month, which is probably more than most! It's also worth noting that the stove top takes a coarser grind than the Pavoni and the Rancillo is designed to easily accommodate that.

I have the Baratza Virtuoso. Great grinder and their US customer support is very responsive.

I roast 99% of the coffee I drink with a Behmor.

I usually brew with a Technivorm, but I also like to use a french press occasionally.

My advice to anyone thinking about stepping up their coffee quality is DON'T. It's so hard to drink bad coffee once you've had the real thing.

My Bodum burr grinder works very well and it was $100, not $380. The coffee I get from it tastes significantly, noticeably better than the $40 blade grinder I used to have, which again tasted noticeably better than pre-ground.

It's all in where you want to spend your disposable income.

I completely agree... was spoiled at a young age (13) when we lived in Madrid for a year and I got to taste real Spanish coffee... before the coffee thing happened back in the US.
