Different Types of Coffee Grinders

Grinding your own coffee beans instantly elevates the coffee experience. There is nothing else akin to the smell of freshly ground coffee beans in the morning. Grinding your coffee beans every day improves the overall taste of your coffee, because the coffee beans have not gone stale. Freshly ground coffee releases all the oils and aromas inside the bean directly into your cup of coffee. Grinding your own coffee also allows you to customize the grind size depending on your preferred brewing method. Different preparation methods require different sizes of coffee grinds for the ideal brew. Although grinding your coffee beans instantly improves the taste, starting with quality coffee beans is also essential. Lavie Coffee has the highest quality of ethically sourced coffee beans available.

Types of Coffee Grinders

There are currently three popular types of coffee grinders. The two automatic grinders are blade grinders and burr grinders. Manual grinders are not automatic and require the user to grind the coffee beans manually.

  1. Blade Grinders

As its name suggests, a blade grinder consists of a blade that spins in a circle to grind the coffee beans. The length of time the blade rotates will determine how fine a grind is produced. This method is more difficult to pinpoint a specific type of grind with. Blade grinders also generate heat as they grind the coffee beans, which may impact the final flavor of your cup of coffee. Blade grinders are a great entry-level way to grind your coffee beans.

  1. Burr Grinders

Burr grinders operate by crushing the coffee beans with a grinder wheel. The user can manually set the desired size of the ground coffee, and the burr grinder can produce this size more accurately. Burr grinders are usually quieter than blade grinders. However, they do come with a heftier price tag. Lavie Coffee recommends using a burr grinder with our coffee beans because it will allow you to achieve the perfect grind.
