      I have noticed of late that a few companies seem to produce a coffee with less of that very fine grind in them. I have been trying out the Chock full o Nuts coffee from New York. They come in tins still and the grind seems to be somewhat larger than the normal I see.  I have used the grinders at various markets as well and if you set them to the mid or high range of drip often they are coarse enough not to stall.

      I have found that using a blade grinder instead of a burr grinder leaves too
      much powder in the grinds for the Cory glass filter rods and they tend to

      Back in the day, the local supermarkets had burr grinders - like the 8
      O'clock coffee grinders. The pre-ground canned coffee wasn't powdery
      either. Perhaps as an experiment you could find a store with a burr grinder
      and try a bag.

      I bought an original Hobart grinder off eBay awhile back and have had good
      results with the Cory glass rods. Folks here have mentioned reconditioned
      Barista burr grinders are available for ~ $ 69.
