BUDGET GRINDER SHOWDOWN!: Best Grinder Under $250

In this BEHEMOTH of a video, the product of 2 months of work, I take a look at the best options for flat burr grinders under $250. TIME CUES BELOW TO SKIP AROUND!

Find all the information for each grinder below.
About the espresso test- I pulled a Blooming Espresso profile to showcase just how fine these grinders can go. I was able to choke the machine, even on a blooming profile, so you KNOW these grinders can handle the longest of profiles on your home lever machine or flow capable machine.
