Manual coffee grinders offer you an affordable way to grind your own fresh coffee, although you will lose something in terms of speed and consistency. A great grinder should give you a multitude of grind settings so you have full control over how fine your grounds are. It should be easy to clean, and comfortable to both hold and crank. If you go through a fair amount of coffee, consider one with a larger hopper to hold pre-ground beans. Conversely, if you like to travel and bring your own coffee with you, a more compact model may be preferable. Quiet operation and a non-slip base are also nice features to have.
