I have recently graduated to a Mazzer mini grinder as a nice addition to my Rancilio Silvia espresso machine. I make loooong espressos and drink them black. After many trials, I like forty six by counter culture, but more often I go to the dekalb farmers market in Atlanta and load up on Ethiopian yurgacheffe of their own roasting. I've grown to dislike French roast and most of Starbucks now tastes burned to me. I've become a coffee snob.
