She reacts... well.. like a cat on catnip, to small amounts of coffee.

So we don't go there. heh

And yeah, I grew up with lots of old, nostalgic-type bits and bobs. My dad was always interested in trying things out without the electronics and whatnot. And if a hand grinder will give the same quality, for less, then great. But I don't know how feasible that is here.

For curiosity's sake, I did a few Internet searches for muscle powered coffee grinders; it seems that Zassenhaus is a good brand to consider. There is a short FAQ about them on the Sweet Marias website that you might be interested in.

The writer there suggests that espresso grind is achieveable with a good hand cranked coffee mill; I wonder if anyone out there in CoffeeCrew land can confirm from personal experience if that is true or not.

yeah I had a look at them, thanks for the help though. :)

Thing is, I need to know, hopefully from a local, where I can get a good grinder, electronic or otherwise.

So no one local to Victoria can suggest a retailer who sells good grinders?

I'm gonna take a look at the kitchen/home place out by tillicum, but I really don't know Victoria welle nough.
