Hi all.... looking thru my cupboard the other day I found a Russel Hobbs grinder that I used some time ago for my caffitiere (??) so as I as yet not purchased a grinder I put some beans in and ground them on the finest setting... loaded the grind into the Classic (after pressing etc) and switched on. Result.... the water shot thru leaving me with a non creama light brown liquid. The grinder wil now be skip bound leaving me still uncertain as to which grinder to go for without taking out a mortage. I am thinking about the Dualit grinder...any comments PLEASE will be most helpfull. Take care... Frederick
I have a Gaggia Classic arriving and a list of extra's to get it up to Coffeforums spec:) thanks to hours of reading here.. but a grinder, gosh my brian is overloaded now with choices. It is tough, budget is low but I take it there is no point skimping. However a few points I need to consider, 1. it has to have a small footprint and our under cupboard headroom is only 14"/360mm so it can't be tall. At a push I could relocate it all but I'm still not certain what my wife will think when it takes over the worktop 2. Were not espresso drinkers, more latte,cappaccino mocha , I presume that makes no difference to the grinder? Possible grinders so far hand grinder - Knock Feldgrind cheapo Elec grinder - De'Longi Pro Burr Grinder - or Wilfa Grinder As for a "proper" grinder the list is so long now I'm not sure where to start..think maybe I'll get some pre-ground coffee to start with. Someone did post the De'Longi although it's loud it does grind ok, however I'm not enamoured by anything that's loud in the morning. Blimey it's midday and no work done, this forum is killing my productive rate!
Hi, I've been looking around to replace my cheap Sunbeam grinder with something that makes a nice espresso or french press. It's very messy and produces clumpy grinds. It seems like the Baratza Virtuoso is the most recommended for espresso and french press http://www.coffeeholic.link/best-coffee-grinder/. Looks like it has a quality burr set and nice features for approx $250 (the high-end of my budget). My second option is the Breville Smart Grinder Pro (BCG820) which seems popular with buyers and closer to my budget. It has just about every feature that I need and easy to clean. With 60 adjustment levels I’m guessing that it will be accurate enough to get my preferred shot just right. It's a lot of information to take in, should I just go for the Virtuoso (it’s not that much more)? Is there another coffee grinder that I should consider buying? Any help much appreciated. Cheers.
