There is a coffee mill on groupon for 25 dollars. The brand is cookinex and I can't seem to find any reviews online. Any advice or reviews regarding this particular grinder? Here is the link:Stainless Steel Coffee Mill. http://gr.pn/1kpyuTp

I never heard of them and with grinders you tend to get what you pay for. Quality hand grinders can be had and are less expensive than powered grinders.

What kind of brew method are you thinking about using it for. In short, there are 2 kinds of grinders. Those that will work for espresso and grinders for everything else BUT espresso. Espresso requires a different kind of grind than other methods but all methods require consistency in the size of the particle.

Some hand grinders are much faster than others too.

yeah, that's what I was thinking. However, I just gave up trying to find any other place on the web where I could find a picture of the thing, let alone specs. I'm guessing it's a total piece of sh%t. My advice, fwiw, is to steer clear of it.
