Subject: research on grind/grinders...
 

can anybody reference some of the previously mentioned research on types of grind-from the cheap little grinders to the expensive?  I have read some here before, but can't find it again!  My sister, who has a great espresso machine continues to use a little grinder, and I continue to endorse her getting a better one, but I need to back that up.

This thread is contains lots of opinionated posts with some references to research articles, but does provide some interesting discussion on blade grinders vs. burr grinders.

Blade vs. Burr Grinders

The following article focuses specifically on different models from one brand of grinder, Baratza. Nonetheless, it contains tons of information about what to look for when shopping for a any type of grinder.

Baratza Grinder Review

In general, if you're looking for the ability to grind coffee consistently for best extraction and adjust the grind for different brewing methods, any burr grinder will be far better than the most expensive blade grinder. Among burr grinders, as you go up in price you'll typically find higher quality burrs, more advanced adjustment and calibration mechanisms, stronger motors, and faster, quieter operation..

Hope this helps!
