What are the different types of coffee grinders?

Is there an advantage to grinding it yourself?

Fresh ground not only tastes much better, but you can grind it finer to make it stronger, so it lasts longer. Find a simple model with the fewest parts. Digital is un-necessary, but you do want cup measurements easily readable as you're grinding. Kitchen-Aid makes a great grinder.

Coffee grinders are designed to grind coffee appropriately for different kinds of filters. A coarser grind works for flat-bottom filters, and finely ground coffee is used for a French press or espresso machine. Grinding your own coffee ensures that it is as fresh and flavorful as possible.
