Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between a blade and burr grinder?
AA blade grinder uses spinning metal blades to chop the coffee beans into very fine pieces. A burr grinder, on the other hand, uses 2 gears or rollers to smash and grind the coffee beans finely.
QWhat is the benefit of a burr grinder?
AA burr grinder provides a more even and high-quality grind, and won't accidentally burn the coffee like a blade grinder will. Also the size of the grounds can be changed by adjusting the space between the burrs.
QWhy is variable grinding size important?
ADifferent coffee makers prefer different size of grounds - espresso makers favour a very fine grind, whereas a French Press needs a far coarser grind.
QWhy can blade grinders burn coffee?
ABlade grinders work by cutting up the coffee beans into very small pieces using rotating metal blades. Unfortunately, the blades have to spin very fast to cut, and the act of cutting produces friction and heat. This can actually heat the coffee so much that it 'burns' and gains an unwanted, bitter taste. For best results with a blade grinder, grind in short bursts to avoid burning.

Blade Coffee Grinder Buying Guide

At its core, a coffee grinder is a small machine that take whole coffee beans and runs them through a grinder, providing fresh ground coffee for an excellent brew. While it’s definitely fine to use pre-ground coffee, coffee snobs generally agree that coffee tastes better when you use freshly-ground beans rather than pre-packaged grounds.

Blade grinders

These grinders use sharp blades powered by an electric motor to chop the beans into very fine pieces. These machines are generally the cheapest type of coffee grinder, but they do not produce a particularly even grind - some ground may be significantly different sizes than others, leading to a less-efficient brewing, and less tasty coffee. More troubling, the high RPM of the blades on these type of grinders generates quite a lot of heat, which can lead to actually burning the grounds, making coffee brewed from them taste far more bitter.

Resource ID 76

Grind Settings

For bladed grinders, it can be difficult to adjust the side of the grind, since the blades cannot be modified to cut coarser or finer. However you can gain an approximation of different grind sizes by grinding the beans for longer. As a good rule of thumb 8-10 seconds will give you a coarse grind, with 12-15 seconds giving a medium grind, and 15-20 for a fine grind.

With all types of grinder, you have to experiment a bit to find the perfect grind setting for the coffee you want to make. If you find too many ground leaking into the coffee, try a coarser grind. If you want a more intense flavour, try finer grounds.

Some expensive coffee makers will actually have grinders built-in, so double-check your maker of choice doesn't have this extra before buying a stand-alone model.
Resource ID 75

Capacity

Coffee grinders all have a different capacity, measuring that amount of ground coffee the machine can hold. Some grinders contain a big hopper that can hold enough grounds for several cafetieres, others will only product enough grounds for a single cup - these usually have inbuilt ‘dose controls’ to make sure only the right amount of grounds are produced at once.

Which capacity is best for you depends on what kind of coffee you mot regularly make - families and companies may prefer a bigger capacity, while solo coffee drinkers may only need a grinder that dispenses a single dose at a time.

Timer

More advanced coffee grinders will allow you to set a timer for how long the grinder will run - this allows you to create the precise grind quantity for the amount of coffee you want to make, especially when using bladed grinders. Some coffee makers will measure out in seconds of grinding, others will measure in cups. In both cases, you will need to experiment to find the right amount of coffee grinds for your chosen method of brewing.
