    Red face Coffee.

    The third choice in the poll is supposed to be:
    I get whole beans and grind them with a blade ("whirlleyblade") grinder.

    It is argued by coffee purist that grinding freshly roasted beans just prior to brewing is essential to the production of true coffee taste. The reasoning is that the whole bean offers the miminal surfaces for oxidstion: once the beans are ground (and the finer the grind the more this is so), the surfaces available to oxygen in the air is greatly increased, and oxidation proceeds much more rapidly.

    This four week poll is designed to give an indication of CC member's prefered methods of getting their coffee beans ground and to provide a venue for them to post comments and share knowledge and experience.

    I don't drink coffee myself, but my DH prefers coffee ground by hand with a manual burr grinder. He says he can truly taste the difference. We have 2 old fashioned burr grinders, one is over 30 yrs old (now retired), the other I bought new last year. I find I can get a much more consistant grind using the manual grinder that any of the electric whirlleyblade grinders we tried.

    Dunkin Donuts wasn't in the poll. What the hell? They sell 1 billion cups of coffee annually and they didn't make the list?...lol

    I don't consider myself a coffee snob, but it is one of my vices. I prefer a smooth coffee to the Starbucks type that's very bitter. Then I dump a bunch of french vanilla spooge in there and I'm good to go.

    If I'm on the road it's Dunkin Donuts coffee. If I'm home it's Chase & Sanborn through my drip maker...

    burr grinders are always rated much better than blade grinders. powered burr grinders are much better than blade grinders

    When you're right, you're right!

    You'll have to spend big bucks to get a powered burr grinder that grinds as uniform as a comperable manual; the Zassenhaus, for instance.

    brads girl many good coffee shops do mail mail order , its worth it ,,,
    i am fortunate a shop nearby does its own roasting, not to many small roasters near nyc due to air pollution laws
