Looking for a truly hand-held solution ... as a way to get in a bit of compulsory morning exercise?

off the top of my head the demands of espresso and french press grinding are quite different.
French press is the kind of coffee maker made popular by Bodum; a glass pot in which you mix boiled/ing water and grinds, wait a few minutes and then press down the grinds with a piston that lets the coffee through?
If so, it is my understanding that this requires a bit coarser grind, while true espresso (from a 15+ bar machine) requires an extremely fine grind. We have an electric Bodum grinder which does have an espresso setting but I still find the result much coarser than what you find in off-the-shelf packaging by reputable (Italian) companies.
