I have a Kitchenaid grinder that has the jar on top that holds the beans. The grinder is a burr design. It works great with dry beans but not with oily ones. Most dark roast , French roast or expresso beans I've seen are oily. I don't think it's a question of where you get the beans, the age of the beans, or inferior beans. These kind of beans are oily. How the heck are you suppose to grind them?
After researching restaurants on this site for an upcoming trip, it was clear Ray's is a must. Decided to call on a whim, not expecting to get a reservation only 2 weeks out, but Jared said they just had a cancellation and we're in. Party of 4, Fri at 8:00 Nice.
