Good coffee requires a good grinder

Coffee makes it possible for me to work. Work makes it possible for money to flow through me. Money makes it possible for the organizations I care about to be successful. 

But whether to grind at the store or at home? Do you want to drink your coffee or other customers' coffee? Do you want a consistent grind or do you want to learn the quirks of every grinder in every store you patronize? I buy from three Peet's stores and I ask for a different grind at each one. No more. I'm buying beans from Blue Tribe Coffee who treats Mexican coffee growers decently. And I'm grinding them at home with the best grinder that I can afford: the Baratza Vario 886.
