We've been using a coffee mill for several years (it's a Braun, too, if I
remember correctly).  If you never use it for anything other than spices
it's great; otherwise, you might want to consider only using it for spices
you don't mind having in your coffee... :)

We buy cumin seed in bulk, and grind our own fresh-ground cumin.  What an
amazing flavor difference from the store-bought ground!  Ground cinnamon,
too, is stronger (just makes a LOT of noise in the grinder! :)
