The most often recommended manual grinders are the Zassenhaus line.
These grinders tend to do a much better job at grinding at finer levels - for espresso rather than for drip. At coarser levels there are complaints that the burrs grind more unevenly.
For just a bit more money you might consider the electric Solis Maestro grinder. Check out the "Our picks" link on our home page for equipment recommendations.
The plans are changing. I was to buy a decent wide range grinder for both espresso and drip (I was lookin' at the Maximo, same as La Pavoni PG), but I just learned that my parents bough a grinder for my g/f. Obviously they did not buy something that would do the job for espresso, so I can get a grinder exclusively for espresso. So I'll get an hand mill.
Just wondering if there's any online store where to get a Zassenhaus in Canada.
Merchants of Green Coffee in Toronto sell them as well, including the turkish grinder (this one looks different, having a classic turkish cylinder setup, like a pepper grinder in shape with a grounds container on the bottom). Good chunk of change for a manual grinder ... Very good quality and I understand that they come with a 10-year warranty(?)
Failing that, I came across a comment suggesting that Alistair Hopkin (Elysian Room, Vancouver) may have been selling them at one point.
