I have been very happy with my Baratza Encore. It produces a very even grind. Only issue I have with it is that it is quite loud.
Check the sidebar for the coffee gear suggestions, there are quite a lot of good options out there depending on your price range.
You can get either a manual or an electric grinder. I got a manual grinder last year (Hario Skerton), and imo I'm getting too lazy to manually grind them now and am putting an electric grinder on my wishlist! Everyone at /r/coffee would put a Baratza encore as a good beginner electric grinder with a good price. If you have a limited budget, a Hario Skerton is great. An aeropress or Chemex for him to brew are also good gifts, if he doesn't have one.
Invest in a good grinder like a Baratza Encore and start brewing at home. I'll usually order my beans from a roaster buts recently I've been brewing Starbucks Pike Roast (same coffee they have on uni.) and its actually a good cup.
edit: Also forgot, check out /r/coffee to find out more on brewing and everything.
Baratza forever. Just cough up the extra 20 or 30 bucks, it'll be worth it over time.
Trust me, trying to carefully pour the water over the filter and cap to get rid of me. I usually pour over with a Chemex too -- you're going to want a better grinder -- this one. 12-15 hours in the fridge, and filter it tomorrow (maybe in the morning, I would probably consider getting a size 02.
Is an Encore ([link]) enough for an Aeropress? I never do anything else except really coarse for cold brew during the summer. Otherwise, I use the aeropress 360 days of the year, probably. I say that a Virtuoso was a step-up, but it seems like it might be over-kill for my needs?
This one is gonna be the best bang for your buck in terms of automatic coffee grinders!
