Description

A low-cost, well-designed electric mill for non-espresso coffee grinding. It is especially good for brewing with auto-drip machines that use a paper filter, Turkish style coffee brewers, and the French Press. This humble blade grinder is a remarkable little machine, long-lasting and low-maintenance.

 One gripe we have with blade grinders is that the heat from the motor can transfer to the coffee grounds -not a good thing as it can damage the coffee flavor. Another potential issue is that you will get a mix of particle sizes - from fine powder to larger chunks - which can lead to uneven extraction rates in certain brewing methods.

We compared the blade mill with other grinders in a Tiny Joy article in the summer of 2011. A blade mill is what we recommend for Turkish coffee, when you really want to powderize the beans.

 The Bodum Bistro electric coffee grinder has the same strong motor as the discontinued C-Mill, which we found to be better than Krups or Braun mills. This mill grinds 1.6 oz of coffee at a time. It is 6-3/4" tall and  3-3/4" wide. Available in black.
