moving from a blade grinder to a conical burr (capresso infinity) has made a HUGE difference in my coffee.
for my press, i'm use a lot less beans and getting a much better cup. espresso...no comparison, it's world better. honestly, when my old burr grinder broke (just a cheap cuisinart) i basically stopped using my espresso machine because using the blade grinder to try to make an espresso grind was futile.
