I host Christmas in two days, and my coffee grinder just croaked. I came in from some last-minute shopping and needed a cup of joe; I got the pot started and then put some beans to grind for the morning. I started to do a second round and nothing. No whir, no buzz. I bought my grinder for $14.99 at Trader Joe’s probably in 2002 at the latest so I can’t complain, but it’s timing could be better!
