Electric Coffee Grinders 101

Electric home coffee grinders are an essential adjunct to any coffeemaker or espresso machine. After all, to make the best cup of coffee or espresso, freshly ground beans are the only option. Start with the best quality of beans, grind them just as needed to make a pot or cup, use filtered water, and you will end up with the best, freshest cup of joe.

When researching the best home coffee grinders to buy, keep in mind that there are two basic types, the burr grinder and the blade grinder, and a wide range of price levels. Which you choose depends largely on what type of beverage you most enjoy.

Burr Coffee grinders versus Blade Grinders

Blade coffee grinders are the least expensive. Often they can be found for around $20, but be forewarned that you get what you pay for. They use a simple system of spinning blades attached to a small motor. These are fine for low-quality automatic drip coffeemakers, which do not require a fine grind or one which produces a consistent size. Blade grinders can also double as spice grinders, as long as they are thoroughly cleaned between uses. The grinders themselves are also easy to clean.

On the other hand, burr coffee grinders are more expensive but the cost is certainly worthwhile if you want to do anything more than just grind coffee for an automatic drip machine. These grinders are larger and heavier. They use grooved metal disks – one rotates while the other does not move – to grind a few beans at a time. Burr grinders are what the professionals use as the fineness of the grind cannot be matched by a blade-type machine.

Burr coffee grinders are the only type of home coffee grinders to use for making espresso if you want it to taste good. Coffee beans in espresso must be finely ground since they are only exposed to the water for several seconds. This is the only way to fully extract the flavor of the coffee.

There are two types of burr coffee grinders – wheel and conical. Those models which use a wheel are less expensive but they also generate a lot of noise and mess. Conical grinders, on the other hand, grind more slowly and so produce less noise, mess, and clogging. Many of the conical coffee grinders on the market today are designed for use in the home and combine professional apparatus with a more consumer-friendly price.

Additional features which are found on some of the higher end models of burr coffee grinders include larger hoppers, which can handle up to a pound of coffee, and dosers which can dispense the ground coffee into a filter. Many of these machines have the ability to grind coffee into over 50 different-sized grinds, depending on what device is being used for brewing.

With burr-type home coffee grinders and a good quality brewing machine, anyone can make a fresh and delicious cup of coffee.
