Coffee Burr Grinder Is Better Than Blade Because…
by: Ebenezer Heng

People choose coffee burr grinder because grinding a coffee is very important to consider in coffee making. It should be done carefully to be able to have a right grind coffee.

There are generally two methods: the Burr Grinder and the Blade Grinder. These methods are widely used by different individuals and coffee shops.Although, as mentioned earlier, folks preferred the burr grinders.

Burr Grinder has two pieces of burred metal, sometimes flat, sometimes cone-shaped, that lie on top of one another. The metal pieces rub together, beans pass through, and the grounds are mashed out into a hopper or a chute.

The closer each burred piece of metal is to the other, the finer the resulting coffee grain. In professional burr grinders, the grinder is calibrated by setting the selector to the coarsest grind, and adjusting the master dial just until it squeals or whistles, and then ever so lightly tapping it back a notch in the reverse direction. Then the dial is tightened down.

A blade grinder uses blades to grind. A blade grinder works like a dry mix blender. It chops the coffee beans into little bits. Generally, the longer you grind, the smaller the bits get.

In order to get an espresso grind out of a blade grinder, you have to grind for sixty seconds and sometimes more. If you want a coarse grind, you are generally going to grind between ten to twenty-five seconds. For most drip coffee makers, you are looking at twenty to forty-five seconds of grinding.

Now here comes the catch. First, the coffee beans get ground relatively unevenly, or in a not uniformed way. Some are large chunks, some tiny ones, and some just right. So, inconsistency of grind size may clog the machine. Secondly if the metal blades that kept on spinning around will produce heat that affects coffee grind beans taste.

With the characteristics of the two methods, I can say that coffee burr grinder is more better than blade grinder. That is the reason personally I chose the burr grinder. To me, a right size of coffee grain will produce a great taste cup of coffee.
