    With a flair pro, kinu, and that aeropress of yours, you have pretty much the ultimate portable coffee setup. Enjoy!

    If you enjoy the flair this much you should definitely get a high end hand grinder. The cheap ones are crap, it's true, but the high end ones are certainly not. If you are ok with spending $200, I highly recommend the kinu 47 Phoenix. I know that seems like a lot for something you have to crank yourself, but the equivalent grind in electrical would cost double. Same logic as the flair.

    You could also look into the various 1zpresso grinders which are highly regarded at the $100-$150 range. If I had known about their quality at the time I bought the kinu, I might have gone with them instead.

    Lots more to discuss about grinders of course, but check it out at least.
