Getting the Right Coffee Grinder
If you are really a coffee lover, then you should get a coffee grinder for your own use. There is a big difference with coffee not ground than with the ground one. If you will not grind your coffee before brewing, you will not get all the nutrients you would have benefited. And if you are used of buying ground coffee to skip the grinding yourself, then you must buy them bit by bit as if you will buy more than what you need say for a week, chances are they will not be as fresh anymore as they were when you first purchased them. So, to overcome this situation, you only have one option actually and that is to get this wonderful kitchen equipment.

But the thing is there are just too many kinds of coffee grinder available in the online, so how will you determine the right one for you? Is it by the price, by its capacity or by its brand? If you have no knowledge about coffee grinders, you might find it hard to determine which one is better and how to avail of the best deal. By best deal doesn’t mean the cheapest right away for it might even be the worst deal. You might only end up looking for another coffee grinder say in just a week later. Surely that does not sound like you had the best deal!
So, to help you in achieving indeed the best deal when it comes to coffee grinders, here are some facts about them:
- If you want to avail of the cheapest kind of coffee grinder, then it is the blade grinders that you are looking for. Yes, this kind of grinder is probably the cheapest but it might not be the best deal for it is in fact the worst when it comes to quality of service. The blade will just kind of whack on the beans leaving them crushed in different sizes and during the procedure, the grinds will be overly heated thus there are chances that some nutrients will be lost. This should be your last option in fact if money is really tight and you want to have the coffee grinder right away.
- Your next option and could be the best one is the burr grinder. But again, there are two types of this kind, the conical and the flat blade burr grinder. By just their names alone, you will right away see their differences, the conical is with 2 cone shaped burrs, while the flat blade is with 2 flat parallel with each other blades. Both types can produce equal sizes of ground coffee so it is really up to you which one to prefer.
- Your next consideration should be the speed, if the procedure will cause so much irritating noise, and the amount of dosage the grinder can take in every procedure. If you have no knowledge about all of these things, you can do some research online or you can inquire about them from the seller of the coffee grinder.
