Need some coffee advice

So I'm still going through my stuff, figuring out what I'm going to take to the new house, what I'm going to get rid of, and what stuff I'm going to take to a storage unit for the immediate future. At the moment I'm going through my kitchenware and pondering the issue that I've accumulated a great deal of coffee-related equipment over the last couple of years and I'd like some opinions.

First off, do I really need a vacuum brewer and a coffee press? I know they don't do exactly the same things with regards to the end result (the VB makes a more powerful cup but it's more work to clean and store), but I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to keep both.
(Also, it occurs to me as I write this that the way my kitchen is set up, I should make sure there's enough space to use the vacuum brewer on my new stove in any case, that might make the decision for me)

Second, over time I've wound up with two coffee grinders -- an electric one and a hand-cranked one. Electric one's obviously quicker and more convenient to use in the moment, while hand-cranked is easier to keep clean. (both are burr grinders, if that matters)

I know I've got a few friends online who know a thing or two about coffee, so I'd appreciate whatever input people can offer. Thanks.
