Just picked up a JavaGrind at REI. The body is Lexan and the conical  
burrs are ceramic. The burrs are adjustable and after a little  
fiddling, the grind looks the same as from my Rocky.http://www.rei.com/product/739919$20. It is not the most ergonomic design as its flying saucer shape  
is a bit awkward to hold while grinding.

Hi Jim,
I have been looking at that grinder and asking about it fo a couple of 
years now. There is no REI near me, so I have not seen one in real life. 
So far you are the first who has mentioned owning one.
IIRC they are supposed to fit nicely into one of the Lexan Press pots 
also available on the link you posted.
Did you get the press pot with it? Does it make it easier to use? If you 
have any experience with a Zass, how does it compare in grind and 
grinding time?
What intrigued me the most was the Ceramic Burrs! Sounds like a great 
grinder.
Looking forward to your review.

Yeah, that's the other one REI offers - I'd like to know how it works out
after a trip or two.
