+1 on craigslist I got my Pasquini Moka on craigslist for $75 and I love it. I'd recommend you do a countrywide search on craigslist for a grinder.

Here's my problem: The front pocket of my jeans are wearing out and starting to tear at the lip (Is that the correct term?). I guess my knuckles are too manly and they've worn down the fabric of the pocket. Is there a SF-approved way of fixing them? I was thinking about taking some of fabric left over from when I had them hemmed and sewing it to the inside of the pockets,...
