What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each coffee grinder by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the coffee grinder is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec coffee grinders come to market, the older coffee grinders will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
