Reasonably priced grinder for drip / filter coffee

Hi, I'm after advice for a cheapish grinder to be used for a filter machine. It's for my mum's birthday present and she will only ever use it once a day and then only in a drip. Ideally less than £50. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Paul.

the solis/starbucks grinder, don't know exactly how much it costs, perfect for the job.

I use a bodum antigua grinder - does the job nicely. These sometimes come up cheap on ebay (where I got mine) but it looks like to buy one now would be a little over budget.

Hi Paul. The Solis 166/Dualit is indeed perfect for your Mum's needs. It is usually around £60, but can be bought badged up as a Starbucks Barista grinder from the Starbucks outlet near here with a 30% discount at £42. It is well built, looks nice, has a small footprint, collects the grinds in a container, is easy to adjust and use. PM me if you want one and we can do anything to help by mailing it etc :D
