Do you mean grinder of coffee maker?

Any type of coffee maker will work. As for grinders, the burr type works
better than the ones with blades that chop the bean. They start at about
$20 and go up to $450 for a La Pavoni.

If you really loved him, you'd have bought better coffee though.

$450? They go much, much higher for other machines. Mine cost $1300, and they go
much higher than that, depending on your needs and desires.

Agreed.

If he is just a plain ol' working stiff, who likes simple stuff, Mr. Coffee
works fine too.
If he's a pretentious putz, anything over $150 by Cuisinart or Kitchenaid
will do.


Except that over a year or more, those "pretentious" machines will actually cost
less, because their cone filters require significantly less ground coffee to
produce the same strength brew.
