like GVDUB said, i'm gonna be along and tell what i have and that i love it.  hahah

used mazzer super jolly, i think is the best espresso grinder out there in the 350-450 range.  :P  these grinders will likely outlive your espresso machine(and probably you).  

they'll pop up on the for sale forums here every once in a while.  Or maybe contact calblacksmith on here, he always has about a million extra of these laying around.

I second this.  I bought my SJ many years ago on the used market for $250 and it's still going just as strong today as the day I bought it, although I did replace the burrs and the hopper not long after I first got it.  The biggest problem with the SJ is that it won't fit under most kitchen cabinets unless you hack the hopper.  The area where I have mine has no cabinets above it so I don't have that issue.  For home use there's not much reason to buy a new SJ so long as you can find a decent used one (decent used ones seem to be plentiful unlike the Mini).  So long as you don't mind buying used, it's one of the best grinder values out there.
