Which inexpensive grinder is best for French press coffee?
Which inexpensive grinder is best for French press coffee? Three of the most popular choices are the Prolex JP-30, the Bodum Bistro, and the Capresso Infinity. Do any of these grinders have a coarse enough and even enough grind to make a very good cup of French press coffee? Many people say yes, but many people also say no? Maybe some people are just more particular about the amount of sediment in their coffee? It would be helpful if people with experience with any of these grinders and a high end grinder would compare the performance of the grinders for French press coffee.

I would check out some of the videos on you-tube. Seattle Coffee has tons of vids on this subject. And you would have to consider what you feel is inexpensive?

I have never heard of a grinder that can not grind coffee coarse enough...fine yes but not coarse. Like others said.. Baratza Encore"Wine is for aging, not coffee."

Actually some grinders won't grind coarse enough for a good press grind. Also, many that will grind coarse enough often are very inconsistent, having too many fines.I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!
