"I second this. Get a good grinder and an AeroPress and you will be happy :)You should get the AeroPress. It eliminates the muddiness completely, and its much easier to clean then a french press "
Yeah it makes a difference my french press with a blade grinder right now sucks, although according to Will I should man up and go aeropress anyways as it uses a filter that would reduce the muddyness of a typical frenchpress brew. And blade grinder coffee is plenty muddy.
" This is what I use. I don't know what the people complaining about the build quality on Amazon are talking about, it's great for a nice compact burr grinder. "I have the same one. And just like Lane, no quality issues so far.
I was able to pick up the Krups GVX-1 grinder for $23. It is by no means a high end grinder but at $23 I am very happy with the purchase, it works well in my experience with it.
