    need an expensive burr grinder for drip coffee machine

    I have a cheapie grinder in my closet and I don't like it. It's a blade whirly grinder and I haven't used it in years. I've been buying pre-ground coffee (yeah, yeah, I know....)
    I would like to buy whole bean and grind myself but can't afford to pay alot for a grinder.
    My coffee machine is a drip machine. My coffee is a kona blend.
    Can someone suggest a grinder that will work for me for no more than 50.00??
    thanks

    Well, for $50 you won't find a great burr grinder. The last great deal I saw was at Costco.com. Do a search for "coffee grinder" and they did have the Solis Scala for $69 with shipping included, which is a rebadged Solis Maestro or Starbucks Barista. It's a nice conical burr grinder that has a nice build quality. If you can spend that much I'd say that's your best bet. Just don't get one of the burr grinders that are usually in the $30-50 range, which use the lowest quality burr plates that actually beat the beans to death. Later!
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    oops...

    oops and that title should have read INexpensive NOT expensive
    I'm pretty happy with my kona blend coffee that I order on line from Hawaii and I get it ground. I know alot of you cringe at that thought but I like the taste.
    Tell me.... When drinking fresh ground coffee at it's freshest state, are there more oils in the coffee? IE: more irritating to the stomach?
    My stomach doesn't handle coffee well and I can only tolerate 1 cup in the morning. My stomach will start to burn IF I don't eat something pretty soon after.
    I'm thinking more oils = more irritating. But I don't know.
    Starbucks coffee - YUCK!!!! Major irritation.
