Congrats to the winner! I put both your graphics on my tips blog-- at the bottom because they were too big for the side- but they are here: http://oldtips.blogspot.com/

Thank you for the give-aways and all that you do:)

Hey Meaghan (or anyone) Can you reccomend a good coffee grinder? I wanted to order more coffee, but after reading things online it sounds like beans are better to purchase than ground...but I'm clueless on grinders!

Thanks!

CONGRATS, Joni!!! Yaaay! I love contests and winners! ;-)
Oh and I'm looking for a good coffee grinder, too. Let me know if you get a chance.

Hey Melody, I found 2 grinders that seem to be "best bet for the buck".

While they're both on the expensive side for me (I was planning a $20 grinder from Wal*Mart) they seem to be the most reliable. I looked at different reviews for 3 DAYS until I found these two!

This one is also a Burr grinder, just slightly less expensive than the other 2

I will most likely run to Wal*Mart for the $20 grinder, because I'm impatient like that...and then get frustrated when it breaks...THEN get one of the more expensive ones! lol

Thanks for the links, Joni!! I'm like you...I get the cheaper one then it breaks then I get the more expensive one. lol Maybe I'll just go for the good one first. ;-)

Oh you know what...the links were cut off. Bummer. I think I can get the brand from the link script though. I'll search it from there. Thanks again!

Yea! Congrats! And let it be me next time!!!!!

Hey Melody, the first one is a Breville BCG450XL Manual Burr Grinder (I don't know why it is listed as a "manual", it IS electric).

The second is a Jura-Capresso 560 Electric Burr Grinder. This is a conical burr...I don't know the difference, but evidently conical=better. (this is the one I eventually plan on getting)

And the last was a Krups GVX2-12 Coffee Grinder

Hope this helps!
