It's pricey ($193 on Amazon), but it's going to be difficult to find a quality burr grinder for $60. The Breville is considered a medium range grinder, the higher end models are $400+. I'm not enough of a coffee/espresso expert to tell the difference between medium and high end grinds, but the difference between a blade and burr grind is noticeable. Look at it this way, it's going save you money in the long run if you're making daily visits to Starbucks/Peets/local barista for your java fix. You'd probably make your money back in a few months depending how severe your caffeine addiction might be. Good luck on the purchase!
