Burrs Comparison (Pics)

Recommended Posts

i guess the answer to that one would be to take a sample of x amount of grounds and look for consistency or lack of?


But you can't tell consistency by looking, just relative fineness if both grinders make a similar distribution.


For coarser grinds you can sift through a pair of known sieves, but espresso grinds are less suitable for sifting.


Nobody will really tell you what consistency is in terms of good/normal/bad anyway.


If the manufacturer has an LPA plot they could show that, but without 10%/90% or 16%/84% markers & a median, they're difficult to interpret.


"Ultra low fines" burrs sound more brew oriented anyway, so there are more options for objective study.

I'm actually curious what their definition of ultra low fines is, thus the question. I really wish manufacturers were less vague when it comes to describing things.
