Coffee Grinders Buying Guide

Few aromas top that of freshly ground coffee and you can’t top the taste of the coffee made from that grind. If you’re a coffee purist or just enjoy good coffee, a coffee grinder lets you grind your own beans for delicious cups of joe every day.

Types of Coffee Grinders

Types of Coffee Grinders

Coffee grinders may be as simple or sophisticated as your coffee tastes. Different models feature quantity controls and the ability to set the grind level from coarse to fine. Perfectionists appreciate models with glass vessels to catch the grounds, while plastic canisters satisfy others.


Electric grinders often feature more bells and whistles. If you like to control the coarseness of your coffee grounds, an electric grinder offers a good choice.

Ask any coffee connoisseurs and they'll tell you that in order for coffee beans to develop their full flavor profile, they must be... ground right before coming in contact with hot water. This is where the electric coffee grinder BISTRO comes in and becomes part of the coffee making ritual. BISTRO is continuously adjustable - twisting the upper bean container determines how finely ground the beans will be. But there's more to it than that. Most coffee grinders use plastic containers to receive the ground coffee but plastic and ground coffee don't go together well - the powder gets statically charged and spills all over the place. The new BISTRO comes with a borosilicate glass container to catch the ground coffee as glass is inherently static-free. This and the tight plastic/rubber lid make for an excellent, no-spill coffee grinder. The borosilicate glass container comes with a silicone band to make it slip-proof, an especially important feature when touched with wet hands. The BISTRO is made from borosilicate glass, steel, plastic, rubber and silicone. Dimensions Depth: 4.75" Width: 6.25" Height: 10.875" read more


The convenience of a battery-operated grinder is its portability. Usually smaller than electric countertop models, a battery-operated grinder is easy to transport to the office or on vacation. At some point, the battery needs to be recharged or replaced.

Blades or Burrs

Two basic types of coffee grinders exist—ones with metal blades and ones with burrs. Blade grinders, typically cheaper, allow little control over grind fineness. On the other hand, burr grinders regulate the size of the grounds and provide an overall consistent grind.

The Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder has some big shoes to feel. For the past few years, the Baratza Maestro and Baratza Maestro Plus... have set the bar for quality coffee grinding at home. The Baratza Encore has evolved out of the Maestro and Maestro Plus to bring about even greater grinding capabilities at the same affordable price. With updated hardened steel burrs and a new gear box, the Encore grinder brings the capability of grinding for espresso to Baratza's introductory model. The Encore has retained the front pulse button featured on the Maestro Plus to allow for easy on-demand grinding, and reverted the side on/off switch to a multi-directional on/off rather than the previous timer knob. With the improvements of the updated burrs and Baratza's Gearbox 2.0, Baratza has once again provided an unprecedented combination of quality and affordability for home coffee drinkers everywhere. Features: Burrs: Updated 40mm hardened steel conical burrs Grind Adjustment: 40 settings from fine to coarse allows a grind range of 250 to 1200 microns Motor: A 450 RPM DC motor with gear speed reducer helps keep the beans cool while grinding. *3-pack 35G Grindz Coffee Grinder Cleaner *Coffee Grinder Dusting Brush read more

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Once you determine if you’d like a battery- or electric-powered grinder, your purchase depends on how serious you are about the type of grounds used to make your coffee. Electric models offer many options, so consider the elements that follow before buying your grinder.

Bean Capacity (Hopper Size)

If you like to grind beans for just one pot of coffee at a time, then any size of hopper (place that holds the beans) works. If you like to grind beans for several pots of coffee at one time, make sure to purchase a grinder with a hopper that holds several ounces of beans.

Coarseness Levels

Different types of coffeemakers require different coarseness of grounds. If you use just one method of brewing, it won’t matter if the grinder offers a range of grinds. However, if you use several brewing styles, look for a grinder with coarseness control.
