I plan to use drip, french press, and mostly my aeropress.  I'm looking at the Capresso Infinity right now cause the price seems great, but I am wondering what else I should consider?

The Encore would work too, even a Solis 166 or Starbucks Barista (renamed from the 166) or similar would work for non espresso. Better grinder will give you better coffee but those would be about the minimum. Kitchen aid grinders tend to not be as even grinding as their price would seem to indicate that would be. You can mod them to get better performance though.

I bought the Breville Smart Grinder about a month ago and love it. Grinds great, looks great. Not to tall. Can remove the hopper with beans in it. Relatively quite. Easy cleaning.

There are a couple of reviews out there that say it does not grind fine enough for espresso, but the newer models are supposed to have addressed that. Doesn't matter to me though being I use it solely for drip & french press.

Good luck on the search.

Agree, Virtuoso.

Small footprint, easy to use, retains little grounds, a snap to clean. Grinds like a champ.
