Grinding your coffee beans at home, work or anywhere you are is not a problem! You can have the best grind of coffee you want with just a simple equipment. There are many types of grinders for coffee beans and each contributes to how your coffee can taste in the end. Choosing the best grinder for coffee would depend on what’s most convenient for you as well as what quality of ground coffee (fine or coarse) you require and how often you brew a fresh cup.
A manual coffee grinder is a good choice if you want to personally adjust the size of the grounds for the coffee equipment that you’ll use to brew your coffee. Whether you have a Moka Pot, a French Press or an Aeropress, a manual grinder can match anything. They’re small, durable, and a good choice if noise is an issue for you when grinding coffee beans. Compared to other grinders, the manual one is also less expensive and does not require a power source to operate. By simply cranking the handle multiple times, you can grind coffee beans anywhere.
If you have limited time in the morning and can’t spare the time to manually grind your coffee beans, an electric grinder is the solution for you. Compared to a manual grinder which requires double effort, an electric grinder works with just a touch of a button. An electric grinder is best used when you need a quick and easy grind for your quick fix. Some cheap electric grinders can only last for a while so make sure to invest in good electric grinders with an extensive grind option so that you can enjoy your coffee anytime.
Blade grinders can either be electric or manual. This type of grinder does not necessarily specialise in grinding coffee beans since the propeller can chop anything. The longer the propeller runs, the more fine your grounds can be. But if you want a quick grind, it wouldn’t be sufficient for a quick brew since the beans will not be equally or finely ground for your choice of equipment.
Burr grinders are ideally used in coffee shops because the equipment produces equal-sized grounds and the process keeps the taste and the aroma of the grounds beans intact. Using two burrs that spin in opposite directions, the coffee beans are equally ground. Burr grinders also have options that allow the barista to adjust the setting to produce ground coffee based depending on what different types of coffee equipment require. With these features, a burr coffee grinder is definitely worth having!
Portable, flexible, and durable, a travel grinder for coffee is a very good choice if you want something light and easy to use to take anywhere when you want freshly-ground coffee beans for your fix. Travel grinders can either be manual or electric and are commonly only meant to ground coffee beans for single or double cups.
To get the most from your beans, it’s best to grind them just before you go to make your cup of coffee. As whole beans, your coffee has a lot less surface area – making it easier to stay fresh. At Yahava, we grind our coffee so it’s much easier for the water to extract the oils from our beans when we brew them. In doing this, the ground coffee releases its aromatics and produces good extracts that give flavour to our line of premium coffee.
When using a Coffee Plunger, you’ll be needing coarsely ground coffee since your beans can be over-extracted when you use fine grounds and leave your coffee to brew for a while. The mesh filter in the Plunger also requires a coarser grind so that less of the coffee grounds end up in the cup.
With a relatively large volume of water running through the coffee bed, you’ll be needing a slightly finer than ground than cooarse grounds used in coffee Plungers. The paper filters also have much finer holes for the coffee to seep through than a metal filter, which means we can use a finer grind.
Since the Stovetop brews under pressure, a finer grind will help build some resistance as the water travels through the coffee bed. A finer grind also helps to extract coffee quicker – producing a concentrated coffee extract that has a rich, deep and bold taste that will surely wake you up.
When using an immersion style Aeropress with the upside-down method – use a similar grind to filter. If you’re brewing a concentrated Aeropress, use a slightly finer grind than that of a stovetop to get deep and rich extracts with a stronger taste which you can then dilute by adding water or milk.
