There is nothing better than a fresh cup of coffee except maybe a fresh cup of coffee from freshly ground beans. There was a time when everyone bought their coffee already ground but today finding a coffee grinder on your neighbor’s kitchen counter is becoming the norm. With so many choices on the market; it is hard to decide what coffee grinder is right for you.

Blade Grinder

There are two kinds of coffee grinders that are readily available to the average consumer - the burr grinder and the blade grinder. The blade grinder is the less expensive of the two and while it does a decent job of grinding the beans it doesn’t always grind them as fine as some might like and the grounds are uneven in size which can affect the flavor and strength of your coffee.

Burr Grinder – Wheel vs. Conical

The burr grinder is a bit more expensive but it allows for a more consistent grind and a consistent flavor in your coffee. There are two types of burr grinders and while they both grind the coffee well, the wheel burr is more noisy and messy than the conical burr. The latter does the same job with less noise and less clean up afterwards. The conical burr is recommended for flavored or oily beans.

Coffee grinders come in various shapes and sizes to suit any décor and they also vary in price from as low as under $20 up to hundreds of dollars. Keep in mind expensive does not always mean better; consider what your grinding needs will be in advance and then compare the coffee grinders that offer the features you are looking for before purchasing anything. There are many sites that offer a great deal of information on the latest coffee grinders along with reviews and opinions of many different brands and styles.

A coffee grinder can be an appliance that will last you many years if you are careful when selecting the right one instead of picking up the first coffee grinder that you run across or picking the one that looks pretty. While you want an attractive grinder, you also want one that is practical for you. Take your time and find the right one for you and then brew the best cup of coffee you will ever enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
