Best Coffee Grinders

Savisto High Powered Electric Coffee Bean Spice Nut Grinder

In the UK, we collectively drink 70 million cups of coffee per day (Mintel Coffee UK 2008 Report) and a whopping 87% of coffee drinkers prefer a freshly roasted cup made from quality beans, over instant coffee.

Experts say that the most important factor in a delicious cup of coffee (aside from the beans themselves) is the process of grinding, so naturally a top-notch coffee grinder is the single most important piece of equipment you can purchase to create aromatic, rich coffee in your own home.

Personally, I don’t have the time or patience to deal with hand grinding my beans and find that the electric grinders do a much better job of creating uniformly fine grains, so I can produce the most satisfying mug with which to start my day.

Number one on the best coffee grinders list comes this stylish grinder, which not only looks the part, but has a 150-watt motor and stainless steel blades that will have you sipping a full-flavoured cup of coffee in no time.

This is a slightly smaller, compact appliance that won’t take up too much space in your kitchen, but has a large capacity grinding chamber - you can grind 70 grams of coffee beans in one go!

The transparent lid lets you watch the process in order to reach the perfect grain consistency. Boasting a sturdy base and safety features to protect any wee fingers that might sneak in, this quality grinder is a fantastic appliance to help you create the perfect cup.

The Sage by Heston Blumenthal Smart Grinder Pro compliments the range of high-end coffee machines. Featuring a powerful 165 watt motor and precision burr grinders you get a consistent grind. 

This machine can grind beans for espresso in seconds. It also features Dosing IQ Technology which adjusts the grind depending on how many cups or shots of espresso you require. This machine appeals as looks amazing and has oodles of grind settings.

3. Andrew James Coffee, Nut and Spice Grinder

Featured in The Telegraph Best Coffee Grinders May 2016, the powerful 150W motor and easy one-touch operation make this one of my top choices for personal use.

The stainless steel blades are durable and easy to clean. This grinder is so simple to use – ideal for older people who may struggle with fiddly gadgets – also super easy to take apart and put back together for cleaning.

You can easily personalise your coffee blend to suit your tastes by watching the process through the transparent lid, and it even comes in red or black so you can select the right colour to meld perfectly with your kitchen décor. 

4. Bodum Bistro Electric Coffee Maker

This is a modern looking appliance, available in a range of colours to suit your own personal style. It has a slightly smaller capacity than the others on this top list (holding 60g of beans), the easy push button system allows for pulse or continuous grind options.

This cute little unit has a rubber exterior for a comfortable grip, and a cable wrap under the base for convenient storage.  As with all things coffee, it’s a matter of personal taste and some experimentation might be needed to ascertain which you prefer. 

5. De'Longhi KG79 Professional Burr Grinder

This professional burr grinder can grind 120g of beans at the touch of a button, producing up to 12 coffee cups. It is a compact wee grinder and is quieter than many other similar models.

With a transparent bean holder, lid and powder container so you can always easily see the grinding process in action, this simply designed 110 watt machine has two grinding wheels which grind your beans to the perfect consistency and avoid overheating (therefore retaining that perfect coffee aroma).

The easy fineness dial and cup selector help you to quickly and easily create the ultimate cup of coffee. This is a great entry level burr grinder for those wanting to get a little experimental.
