Coffee grinder

A while back I asked for coffee grinder recommendations.

On recommendation of an old friend I went for one of these from Bodum.

Using this to grind my beans and then make coffee in a French press I have to say I'm very much enjoying it. Quick and easy to use and clean too. Many I'm sure will speak highly of burr grinders, but this one's doing me just fine.

Certainly going to be cheaper than a Starbucks

I have a bean to cup machine which has been going for a few years now and still grinds well and makes good coffee.
What coffee do you use?

is that the type where you set it as an alarm clock?
wakes you, tortures you with the noises, and the aromas, and the wait...
before you get the reward

No all it does is grind the beans and dispense the coffee, although it will steam the milk as well.

While everyone will have their own favourites, I quite like Union coffee Bobolink (ordered online for fresh batch, if you buy from supermarket it is already many months past roasting and going off - I didn't believe this until I had both in-hand and one was quite miserable compared to the other).

Black sheep coffee do some nice ones like .Blue Volcano

We have a local coffee roaster - https://winchestercoffeeroasters.co.uk/

Usually get their Single Origin beans, which they'll have roasted a few days before.
