If you are one of those people who cannot start their day without a cup of coffee, electric coffee grinders will do the job for you.
This is my trusty Braun coffee grinder with a hopper full of coffee beans! We use this pretty much every day! I can't imagine life without an electric coffee grinder!
You can stop by the first coffee shop before work but do you really want to wait that long? Instead, the market has a lot of affordable electric grinders and coffee machines that can help you get your day started.
When going for a coffee grinder, you need to keep a few features in mind before you make the purchase. The smallest of variation in features will determine the taste of your coffee.
The first and most significant feature to be kept in mind while buying a coffee grinder is the type of grinder. Presently, coffee grinders are available with three kinds of grinders namely conical burr, burr and blades.
The conical burr type grinder is considered to be the best option when going for a coffee grinder. This kind of grinder rotates slower than other grinders which helps preserve the taste of the coffee. It allows you to make different kinds of coffees such as espresso, Turkish or even French press.
The other kind of grinder is called the burr grinder which is one of the best for commercial as well as home use. The grinder is made of two wheels that gives consistent coffee powder and is also resistant to overheating. The consistency of the coffee powder defines the taste of the coffee.
The blade grinder is the most common kind which is usually used at homes. Now this kind of grinder is noisy and tends to overheat which may burn the coffee on some occasions. However, since it is the cheapest kind of grinder available, it is still quite popular in a lot of homes.
The reason that the type of blade is so important when it comes to coffee grinders is that they determine the taste of the coffee. Blade type grinders create a lot of frictional heat which burns the coffee to an extent. This not only kills the aroma but also has an effect on the flavor.
Other features to look for while going for electric coffee grinders are timer functions and adjustable consistency settings. The timer helps you define how long you want to grind the coffee for which also plays a big role in aroma and taste.
Depending on how coarse or fine the coffee is ground, the taste of your cup of coffee is going to vary. Coffee making really is an art, so make sure you get the best electric grinder to do the job.
