There’s definitely something in the saying, “wake up and smell the coffee”, that alluring aroma of freshly ground beans brewing that first cup of the day enlivens all the senses. Of course, we’re not the only ones to think this, and increasing numbers of coffee lovers are designing their own kitchen brewing setups. So, if you’re deciding to start perfecting your perfect cup at home, what are the three best grinders for getting into coffee?
Rhino Small Hand Grinder
The Rhino Small Hand Grinder is a great entry-level grinder for people who are just brewing for themselves. Priced at £39.99 and designed around the popular AeroPress, the Rhino beats all other grinders at the same price point. The metal hand grinder fits into one hand, offering stable grinding, making it simple to use and carry around.
For novice home baristas who want to experiment with different coffee types, the Brewista X Series Hand Grinder provides versatility combined with a sleek modern look. With 60 coarseness settings, the X Series makes it simple to switch from a French press to espresso, making it ideal for anyone wanting to discover their signature brew.
The Z-shaped handle connected to independent Italian steel burrs makes for an effortless grind, and it can be disassembled by hand and cleaned in seconds. The grinder includes a cleaning brush and blower.
If you’re thinking about buying an electric coffee grinder, a great entry-level grinder is the Baratza Encore. The Encore has been lauded by coffee experts as the go-to grinder for people getting into coffee, offering 40 grind settings (from 250 to 1200 microns) and an 8oz clear grounds bin meaning that you can brew for more than one without wastage. At £159, we think it’s an excellent investment that will keep you in delicious fresh coffee for years.
