Hand-Crank Coffee Grinders

Grinding coffee by hand has a few advantages: it's quiet, it yields a more uniform grind, and it's more practical when you are camping, boating or off-grind. The grinder pictured here has an all-metal grinding mechanism and is available from The Vermont Country Store for about $25. There are also more portable coffee grinder made by GSI for campers — you can acquire them for around $20 from BackCountryGear (via MetaEfficient).
