Some people optimize computer hardware, and other people optimize coffee grinders.

I've begun looking for a new coffee maker, and I'm already sorry I didn't start looking at, say, the neighborhood department store instead of the Internet, where the issue is rapidly complexifying as I encounter the normal 'net mania for perfection, ever stalking the elusive god shot.

My current, erm, rig is pretty simple: a cheap whirling blade grinder and a press coffee maker. What's the optimal setup? How much is too much for a grinder? Are these vacuum coffee makers really all that or are they a bit of bizarre-o fetishism of an all-too-familiar sort?
