Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder

Need that perfect coffee grinder to get the exact grain for your espresso? Look no further than the Bodum Bistro

Using the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder Black Edition

I've gone through numerous cheap espresso makers, but the biggest problem I find is that the coffee I grind is either too fine or too chunky.  It's just so hard to find the right balance with most conventional grinders.  You always end up with espresso that is way too weak, or the machine simply jams because the grind is fine and packed too tight in chunks.

You could always buy pre-ground espresso, but it just isn't as fresh this way.  Real coffee snobs will surely look down on you as well!  I think the best compromise is really to just invest in a quality grinder like the Bodum Bistro.

Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder Review

Overall I've been extremely please with this grinder.  Other models that I've tried just haven't been able to produce a consistent and fine grain that works.  Things were different right off for the Bodum Bistro.  Here is what I loved about this machine

  • It's super easy to use, but most grinders are.  The best part is probably the plastic material around the edges of the glass.  There is no static, no mess, and everything fits together and seals perfectly.  My old grinders consistently left piles of coffee grinds all over the counter, no matter how hard I tried to be neat.
  • The grind is perfect.  I don't have to worry about clogging up my machine and the coffee is just as strong as I could be possibly hope for.  It's amazing how much a good grinder can really improve the quality of your coffee.
  • I've had no trouble with it clogging or stopping after almost 3 months.  In my experience some grinders just quit, but this thing has kept going.  It's built with quality in mind--that's for sure.  Where many grinders would utilize cheap plastic, the Bodum Bistro has pieces of stainless steel.  This is great for the long term maintenance and use of the machine

My Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder

I think my biggest complaint about this grinder is that it promotes my bad habit of drinking too much coffee.  I've read studies that say a small amount of coffee each day might actually be healthy.  Well, I'm pretty certain these studies don't consider a "small" amount to be 5-6 cups!

Anyway, if you're looking for a great coffee grinder then the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder is the one I'd recommend.  It won't do anything for a bad coffee addiction (except maybe make it worse) but it will help you get that fine and consistent grind for whatever it is you want to brew.
