I told my wife was getting another hand grinder so she assumed it was going to be like one we had.  When she finally saw the HG One on our counter,  she exlaimed "WTF!? It's huge!"

Yup, TWSS.

My wife tells her friends "Some husbands look at porn on the internet.  My husband spends his time on CoffeeGeek".  Guess she never heard of espressoporn.
