   Which coffee grinder is worth buying?
We have already made the first arrangements. The grinder must be grinding and a necessary condition. The other elements I will discuss depend on your preferences, needs and, above all, your budget. A good coffee grinder is one that grinds the coffee into as equal particles of the same size as possible and generates as little dust as possible.

   Grinder brand. Whatever else matters. Because there are brands that have been specializing in coffee grinding for years and buying a given brand, we are sure that – even their cheapest model – should meet our expectations. Another thing is that these “cheapest” brand models often densely exceed the budget of ordinary kawomaniaKa. However, it is an investment for years and it may be worth considering.

   What mills do I recommend?
What brands of coffee grinders do I recommend? I will try to indicate which brands are worth paying attention to. Of course, this is just a suggestion, everyone should find something that suits him. If you have just decided to touch the topic of making real coffee at home and want to give up instant coffee or a capsule maker, you can consider most of the grinder coffee grinders, even the cheapest ones. I recently described how to calibrate a coffee grinder to give us satisfactory results. 

   Brands worth paying attention to at the beginning of your coffee-road will definitely include those known for the production of coffee machines and recognized gastronomy products. These will include Delonghi, Melitta, Nivona, Krups, Bosh and budget MPM. If your path is at the beginning, but you intend to follow it for a long time, and you do not want to change the mill every few months, then it is worth looking at Graef, Wilf, Baratz, Fiorenzato products. 

Moulinex AR 1108:1105

1. Graef CM 702

   Is the perfect grinder for beginner home coffee enthusiasts. It has 24 degrees of grinding thickness and aesthetic design.

More expensive models such as Graef CM 800 and Graef CM 900 are also available. They are still attractive in price and can be classified as more professional. Especially Graef CM800, an automatic coffee grinder that has conical burrs made of stainless steel and a low-speed motor with 40-degree grinding adjustment.

2. Wilfa Svart Nymalt WSCG-2

The model is equipped with a touch screen, portion counter and a simple grinding setup system. Plane parallel millstones are made of hardened steel.

6. Bosch MKM 6003

   That’s right, the Bosch MKM 6003 mill is one of the most inexpensive coffee grinders in principle. No, there are, of course, coffee grinders and for 500 rubles. But they are of absolutely indecent quality, and they work even less. Regarding how this Bosch works, read below under the heading “frequent breakdowns”.

   So here. The coffee grinder is a classic rotary version, where grinding is carried out with a steel impact knife. By the way, the knife is pretty high quality. Someone is looking at power – 180 W is here, but it does not solve, believe me. The controls are primitive, there is one button combined with a “block” of rotation. This button is a tab on the cover. While pressed, the milk is pounded. If the lid flies off, the button, of course, will be squeezed out – the milk will rise. Perhaps this is not the most convenient choice for the best coffee grinder, However, I advise you not to use this coffee grinder, because it is a knife mill. I wrote about why in the manual. However, many people use it to chop various small grains – flaxseed, gut, nuts. It certainly works great on this.

7. De’Longhi KG89

   The De’Longhi KG89 grinder makes coffee beans suck in and rub against each other. Thanks to this, it provides them with constant graininess and preserves aroma. It has a stainless steel housing and the ability to choose the amount of coffee to be ground: the maximum amount is enough for 12 cups.

   Model KG89 from the manufacturer DeLonghi, is equipped with a device that regulates the degree of grinding of grains. Thus, the coffee grinder grinds coffee into coarse, medium or fine powder – depending on the “order”. With such a millstone model, you will get coffee for every taste: powdered, which is suitable for making coffee in the eastern – that is, in Turk; or coarse, slightly coarse grinding, suitable for a French press; or maybe thin for making espresso? KG89 on the shoulder any task. The coffee grinder from DeLonghi is equipped with a container for beans, a volume of 120 grams, which allows the device to quickly cope with 120 grams of coffee beans and grind them into powder. Due to the design resembling a traditional mill, the millstone grinder provides high grinding uniformity perfectly suitable for coffee machines.

8. Melitta Molino 1019-01

   A decent, cheap and visually appealing coffee grinder. It has a capacious container for beans up to 200 g, adjustable grinding degree on one of 17 levels, and a rotary switch that allows you to set the amount of coffee to be ground, depending on the number of portions of coffee drink to prepare – from 2 to 14.

9. Bosch MKM6000

   Another impact knife grinder in the list. We do not recommend this type of coffee grinder for a pressure coffee maker.

Attached to the coffee grinder. The body of the coffee grinder is made of high-quality white plastic. The device cover is made of transparent plastic with a green start button.

10. Krups GVX242

   There is another switch knob that helps measure the amount of powder needed for a serving. How many cups of the drink you need to prepare, so many servings will fall into the sealed lower container. The influx of guests will not confuse the owner of the Krups GVX 242, because you can grind up to 12 servings at a time. And it’s not even necessary to set the switch to the required amount. You can start and stop the engine simply by pressing the power button, if you do not want to wait until two servings are ready (minimum load). Stylish and compact, measuring only 20 × 16 × 26.6 cm, the Krups GVX 242 captivates with German pragmatism and asceticism – there is nothing superfluous in its design, but the coffee grinder has an amazing working capacity, reliability and thoughtfulness of all details.

11. DeLonghi KG 79

   Another DeLonghi coffee grinder in the ranking. The differences with the previous model are small and the choice is rather availability and price. Until recently, it was a certain starting point in choosing an inexpensive home coffee grinder, as I wrote in its review, but at the moment it is not on sale. And it remained instead to be content with an analogue – a pseudo millstone coffee grinder Delonghi KG 79 or KG 89. The latter differs only in finish – metal external panels of the case. And it is she who appears in the photo.

Food Processors FAQ

I’m sorry, I have not tried to grind nuts; however, it does have 3 settings from coarse to fine.

Perfect!! But be careful, the one they sent me runs on 220 power. Can’t use in USA.

I believe so! The floor of the grinder is tilted allowing for small amounts to be ground evenly….but the model, MKM 6003, appears to be unavailable (at least on this day Aug 31st, ‘19

Grind 1 T. of dry, white rice and 1 T. baking soda together for a full minute. Empty it out, then wipe out the chamber with a damp (NOT WET) paper towel. (If any water gets past the blades and into the motor, it will seize and never run again.) Rice will clean the blades and the baking soda will help get rid of strong spice odors.

I grind flax seed with this grinder. It turns flax seed in to a fine pulp I use for my smoothies. I use two tablespoons of flax seeds in this grinder at a time, pulse it a few times and then run it continuously for about 10 or so seconds and the flax seeds are nicely ground.

I have a french press as well, and what I’ve learned is to grind in small batches. Don’t fill the reservoir up. Just enough beans to cover the blades. Then I pulse the blades about 5 or so times, Checking after a few pulses so I wont over-grind. Takes a little patience but you will learn how many times to pulse the blades per amount of bean you fill it with. When I first got my French Press I bought a bag of cheap grocery store beans to get my technique down. Now I’m comfortable grinding the better grades coffee, by my pulsing technique. If you fill the bin up and grind away , you’re going to get a lot of powder that makes sludge in the bottom of the French Press. So just do a little bit at time and you’ll get perfect results. 

Three pulses for about three seconds each.


yes it works great for that I do that for my compost pile, garden, and for my inside vermicompost bin for my red wiggler worms. a tip for you is to tare up a piece of bread into chunks almost like you are making homemade Thanksgiving stuffing from scratch and grind it in the coffee bean grinder- this will absorb the oil and moisture making it so your coffee grinder does NOT malfunction or stop working because of the oils and moisture from grinding oily coffee beans in it. If this was helpful please hit helpful-thanks a bunch!

I used it with my french press, it worked really well for the price.
