What’s the Best Coffee Grinder for My Needs?

Buying a good coffee grinder is a must for every coffee lover. But, what makes for a good coffee grinder? Regardless of where you are in your quest for great coffee, when it comes to grinding your own beans a burr grinder is a must. A burr grinder is simply two revolving surfaces (called burrs) that grinds coffee into a uniform size. These surfaces can be adjusted according to the desired fineness of the coffee. The alternative to burr grinders are blade grinders. They have a revolving blade (like a plane propeller) that cuts the coffee beans into non-uniform sizes. That is the crux of the matter. Only a burr grinder provides a consistent and uniform grind while best preserving the aroma and flavor of the beans. But, which burr grinder is the right one for you? Here are three options to consider ranked by price and features.

Bodum Bistro Burr Grinder - Best Budget Option

The Bodum Bistro is a really great choice for anyone on a budget. It is the best rated burr grinder in the budget category. It’s reliable, durable, and has enough grind settings to give you almost any grind you could want. It grinds with consistency and is easy to use. It’s also free from the common issues associated with clogging due to coffee bean build-up, meaning it’s easier to maintain. The real drawback is the lack of ability to grind the finest kinds of coffee such as Turkish coffee. You can grind espresso in it, but it really isn’t the best suited for it. However, it’s a great little grinder. And, for the price point, it can’t be beat.

Baratza Encore - A Great Grind without the Frills

This grinder was rated by the NY Times as the best grinder for the money. It’s no surprise that this entry level Baratza grinder has all of the quality you’ve come to expect in the name you trust. This grinder has an expansive grinding range from Turkish (powder) to French press (very coarse), with a total of 40 grinding variances. You can grind in the provided cup or your own portafiller. Grind with the autogrind feature, or grind manually. The Encore gives you a truly great consistent grind for an amazing price. If you don’t want to pay for all of the extra features in a more expensive model, take advantage of this excellent grinder.

If you want to go all out, the Sette 270Wi is the way to go!

Cleaning and Maintaining your Coffee Equipment

In our pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee there’s one mundane, often overlooked, very necessary component: upkeep. We must keep our equipment in clean, best-working order if we want to achieve a great cup of coffee. Read on to learn about why cleaning your coffee equipment is important, and to discover great products to assist you in this process.

Why is it important to clean your coffee equipment?

Cleaning your equipment removes the accumulated coffee oil residue from your machine. That residue will age and become bitter over time, creating a flavor profile that you don’t want in your cup. Moreover, coffee residue will clog and block your machines over time, eventually making it unusable. If you use your machines every day, we recommend cleaning them weekly to keep them in best-working order and your coffee tasting fresh.

What products are best for cleaning my coffee equipment?

Cafiza tablets - These handy tablets clean away old coffee oil in automatic brewers. Easy to use, powerful, and effective, they clean the inner workings of your machine, keeping it free of harmful buildup, and your coffee free from stale coffee taste.

Grindz - This unique, patented product is a natural safe way to clean your grinder of unwanted coffee residue. And, unlike other cleaners, you don’t have to disassemble your grinder.

Why is it important to descale your coffee equipment regularly?

Over time mineral scale builds up on the heating elements of all coffee equipment. This buildup keeps the machine from reaching optimal temperatures. At lower temperatures, the full flavor of your coffee beans cannot be extracted, negatively affecting the taste of your brew.

Dezcal - This coffee and espresso machine descaling powder breaks down the mineral deposits on your machine which can cause machine failure and inconsistent temperatures. Dezcal works more effectively than vinegar, but without the odor.
