Coffee making: Level 2

Added a new tool to my collection of coffee-making related implements: a burr grinder. Nothing fancy, it's like an oversized pepper mill.

The main reason I wanted to get one of these is so that I can adjust the size of the grounds, which is something I can't do with the electric blade type grinder I currently have.

The other nice thing about this manual model is that it's pretty simple, not a lot of pieces, and comes apart pretty easily for cleaning.

Looking forward to doing some coffee experiments with this.
