Does someone have a suggested small vacuum for cleaning a grinder such as the CMH?

Thanks.

It's low tech, but I like this cheap mini whisk and dust pan for sweeping up coffee grounds:

For the grinder, here's my tool of choice:

Thanks... I too like the brushes that Dan suggests... but would still like to find a vacuum that works well for cleaning in and around grinders.

Thanks in advance.

I guess you're looking for something like this (with hose attachment for easy access etc) --> http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006HUYGM

We have a similar one (philips) and very pleased with it, but I couldn't find it at online usa shops :)

My 1¢
I like my little Shark. The small end just fits the grinder exit chute of my Mazzer. Mine says 1000watts. That's about a half horse +. It really is light and handy. I can clean the Doser on my other grinder as well. Goodwill® has them from time to time for under $10. A new filter costs that much but it is easy to clean and reusable. Ebay / Amazon has them really cheap too.

YMMV

PS I had the Little Dirt Devil and it didn't perform half so well and was clunky to use. The hose exited at an odd angle and that got in the way.

These are my choice, too! At 50¢ a brush, they're hard to beat . . .
