Hello, I really want to upgrade my Mr.Coffee mill into something else for I found out it doesnt produce very consistent grind. Since my budget is tight and I have no space in my house, I'd rather go for a manual grinder. So I have narrate my options to Hario Mini, Kyocera CM 50 and Porlex. I'm a french press and espresso person, any suggestion? thanks

when you say you're an espresso person, what does that mean? you like ordering them at cafes? how do you make them at home with your mr. coffee mill?
as for a hand grinder at a low cost, there really arent many options. a french press grind requires a fairly consistent coarse grind and real espresso will require a very fine, consistent and very adjustable grind.
