A Finer Grinder

Half the gourmet coffee experience stems from how the beans are ground. Blade-driven grinders can burn the beans and give a coarse grind, but your local beanery probably uses a burr grinder, like this one. The compact countertop grinder switches between espresso, drip, or French-press grinds, with cutting burrs that move at a relatively slow 450 rpm to minimize frictional heat. About $250, Kitchenaid
