Hopefully the title says it all. Open to any and all insights from you folks who suck up the errant grinds from your work area.

Our second home has kitchen tile countertops and even a dampened cloth is less than ideal for getting grounds out of the grout. And the struggle has become tiresome.

Shop Vac Professional.

Can't remember where we got her but she gets I'd done. A Google search should do the trick. 6.5 HP, 5 gallon, yadayadayada. Don't think it was too expensive either.
I like my shots how I love my pinrolls, tight.

It's too much money, but the small Dyson seems to be the best battery operated handheld vac out there. Plenty of suction and easy to clean. I have the first version and it just works. Battery life on mine is only about 5 or 6 minutes, but it will do more in those 5 minutes than any Dustbuster I've ever used will do in its life.
