Looking for a compact coffee grinder/mill?

I am looking for a coffee bean grinder that will live in the van. I like the idea of a burr grinder in either manual or power. Hopefully looking for something compact and good quality if possible. So far I have found the JavaPresse, but I wanted to hear from the SMBers out there.

What do you use and like or dislike?

I tried a couple cheap manual burr grinders from amazon, they are all garbage and the burr wheels broke.

In the end I bought a zassenhaus grinder from the 80s off ebay, the thing is made in "West Germany" i.e. prior to the wall coming down
It is amazing, indestructible and small enough to fit the sliding cupboard.

You can get new ones here:

I'm a fan of the Japanese Porlex grinders: stainless body with ceramic burrs available in mini or tall size. Can be easily disassembled for cleaning. After nearly two decades the hexagon drive shaft of my mini rounded enough to frustrate. The new tall has a slotted shaft/handle interface.
