Can someone fill me in on the practical differences between a flat burr and a conical burr grinder?

Sure thing! Flat and conical burr grinders both do a great job, and for the most part, you'll find both types in excellent coffee shops around the country. You can't really "go wrong" here. There are two minor differences that you may or may not find to be true, however. 1) Flat burr grinders tend to retain more grounds than conical burr grinders, so they may be more efficient in the long run; and 2) conical burr grinders tend to require a bit less adjustment when grinding. Ultimately then, though the differences are minor, the choice between flat and conical is a choice between efficiency vs. ease-of-use.
