I'm trying to find a low cost for a grinder that will do a consistent enough grind for french press.  I just bought an Aeropress also.  I'm looking to try a bunch of devices and want a grinder that will stay consistent.  I have a Hario Skelton.  It seems consistent for using the Aeropress.  However, not so much for the french press.  Any thoughts?

First, what is your price range for the grinder?  How much money are you willing to spend?

Well, I would like to have options.  However, I would say I would prefer to keep it under a $100, but may consider going as high as $150-200 if it was really compelling.

Orphan Espresso has an upgraded Kyocera (50-60 bucks or so) that apparently is pretty decent at a FP grind. But you might not be interested in manual grinding (I sure ain't!)...

Baratza star bucks refurb with shipping would put you under 100$. Like new, a cross between the virtuoso and maestro grinders.

The question is, whether the Virtuoso is worth the jump?  Because a refurbished Virtuoso isn't more than $50 more, and if it's worth it, I'd consider saving the extra money to buy it.  I'm not afraid of hand grinder, but it would be nice to have an electronic for more than myself.  Anything more than for me and it's a pain to grind.
