Check this site linked below for what i would term the best for serious coffee people who want drip. I have the Bonavita and have used the Techivorm as well. Both seem to perform pretty similarly, maybe a slight edge to the Bonavita for home roaster like myself who often has very freshly roasted beans. The Technivorm is cooler looking but I prefered the nice water spout of the Bonavita. Technivorm is also more solid but comes at a much steeper price. I had the Bonavita 1900 for 18 mos, never a problem. Would not rec the one with the heated plate, bad for your brew!

one of the machines in this list (bonavita) is on drop right now for a pretty great price at $100 ... just got one for drip.

I saw that earlier and am tempted. But, the max of only 8 cups is a bit of an issue and I really don't need it since I've been using a Technivorm for years and it's still going strong.

Edit - Crap, on closer inspection the volume capacity is about the same as Technivorm - 1.3L. So that eliminates one of my hurdles keeping me from spending the money. Decisions....

2nd Edit - It's only a few dollars more on Amazon. Not worth any savings for something that isn't a need for me right now.

I'm still blissful in my ignorance as I have been using the same Braun blade grinder for 30+ years, but I gotta tell you, this looked really interesting. I just purchased a salad spinner by this manufacturer and it is really well detailed and well made. (plus warrantied for life)
If this grinder is as good as the salad spinner, for $16.97, that's some pretty hefty QPR.

I have read the hand grinders can do a nice job grinding but are very slow to grind much. So I would read up on that. Once you retire you chopper you won’t look back.
