We cant stress this enough, buy your coffee fresh and grind it right before you brew! When starting out on your coffee journey the most important items to buy (no matter what method you are going to use) are a gram scale and a grinder. We wrote a blog post for some more information on finding the right grinder.
The HARIO Coffee mill column hand grinder is beautifully designed. It uses high quality ceramic burrs, which do not transfer heat and shaves the coffee beans instead of chopping it up like regular steel blade grinders. This is very important for consistency and will absolutely make a difference in your cup at the end.
This very elegant manual hand grinder has a capacity of 40gr and weighs about 600gr.
