What Is a Coffee Grinder?
Whether you like brewing coffee in a coffee pot or prefer making it in an espresso machine, you need a good coffee grind. And there’s no better appliance for that than a coffee grinder. Rather than simply cutting coffee beans into pieces, a coffee grinder crushes them, releasing more flavour and producing the type of grind you prefer. The only problem you may have is to choose out of thousands of coffee grinders available the one that will be right for you. To help you with your choice, we’ve evaluated the five best-selling models from different brands as well as assessed their main features and functionality so it should be easier for you to pick the right thing.
If you do not find a suitable model on this list, you can take a look at our selection of burr coffee grinders. And if you’ve been thinking of upgrading your old coffee machine, make sure to read this article.
What Features to Compare
First things first, you need to decide which type of coffee grinder will be best for you. There are two types to choose from - blade and burr coffee grinders. Blade coffee grinders are usually cheaper and easier to use. However, the problem with them is that they don't actually grind coffee. Instead, they smash coffee beans, producing a grind that is not consistent in texture. Burr coffee grinders, though more expensive, can really grind coffee. They grind coffee beans between two plates, turning them into uniform, tiny particles. Plus, they produce less friction, which makes for a more flavourful cup of coffee.
Another important thing to consider is how many grind settings are available with a coffee grinder you choose. This is especially important if you love to experiment with coffee brews and want to try out various coffee brewing methods. In general, most coffee grinders presented on the market will have a pulse function allowing you to grind coffee at a single push button. Some others will be featured with an auto-grind function saving you the need to push any button at all. And then, you'll find models with a timed grinding function - these will let you set the time and grind coffee automatically with no manual control. Think how many times you usually brew coffee during a day and decide how much control of the brewing process you really need. For most people, however, coffee grinders offering the basics prove to be more than enough for their needs.
Number of Settings
When it comes to the number of settings, the choice is totally up to you. If you think you're going to need all of the brew styles possible, opt for coffee grinders offering 40 settings and more. For those who prefer the typical brew styles and usually experiment only a little, models with 20-40 settings will suffice. For those who love standard brew styles and look for an inexpensive coffee grinder, models with less than 30 settings will do the trick.
Now, this section is important. Considering that you pay money, we think you should know a bit more about a coffee grinder you buy. In general, there are two types of models available - low-speed and high-speed coffee grinders. Which one to choose will depend on the type of brew you prefer.
You might be surprised to hear it but high speed doesn't always mean a good grind. By grinding beans at fast speeds, coffee grinders often tend to generate heat which can ruin the taste of your coffee adding sourness and bitterness to it. At the same time, higher speeds allow for a finer and more consistent grind perfect for brewing delicious espresso. What's the solution? To get around this problem, it's important to make sure a coffee grinders is equipped with a powerful motor and has larger burrs.
When it comes to low-speed grinders, these are common for most households. Though they operate at slower speeds, the grind they produce is nice and makes for a very good cup of coffee. They prevent heat buildup and brew well for most brew styles regular users need.
Finally, you may want to check the materials a grinder is made of. More often than not, coffee grinders are made either from stainless steel or ceramic. Ceramic models look nice, do not heat much and usually have a longer lifespan than stainless steel grinders. On the other hand, stainless steel models aren't brittle and won't break if you accidentally get a stone or something in the hopper, which makes them a bit more reliable in use. Choosing the perfect grinder for your kitchen will come down to your own preferences and how much money you're ready to spend on the purchase. In this article, we cover the best models which should suit any taste and budget.
