Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder
If you love your coffee - and we mean really, really love your coffee, then you’ll appreciate the superior ground coffee produced by the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder.
With more than 14 settings from super-coarse to super-fine, this grinder will easily handle everything from percolator coffee to super-fine espresso.
There are two basic types of coffee grinders on the market: burr grinders, and blade grinders. Blade grinders are your cheapest option, and they’ll result in cheap-tasting coffee. The spinning blades of a blade grinder will smash and bruise beans, and result in an inconsistent grind with large chunks of coffee beans left over. Burr grinders, on the other hand, will always deliver a consistent grind to your best beans, with no large chunks or unwanted fine powder left over once the grind is done. This model has quality stainless steel burr grinders that are finely machined and should give you a lifetime of service. The burrs are powered by a snappy 160 watt motor that will give you your desired grind in less than 20 seconds. Be careful, though; don’t run this grinder continuously, or the powerful motor might overheat, and then you’d be without your coffee. And nobody wants that!
Getting Help With A Glass Container
One common complaint about coffee grinders, especially the cheap ones that are constructed of plastic, is that finely ground coffee will cling to the sides of the container due to the effects of static electricity. The Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder solves this problem neatly by including a glass container to catch and store the ground coffee. No more frustrated mornings trying to scrape the sides of the coffee grinder to get all of those coffee grounds into your coffee maker. The less obstacles between you and your coffee, the better!
High Quality Grinder
The quality build of the burr grinder is important in two other areas as well. Firstly, the quick and efficient grinding of the beans ensures that the beans are not warmed up during the grinding process, which means that more of the aromatic oils stay put in the grounds, where they belong. As well, the risk of clogging the grinders with hard beans, which is very commonplace in cheaper burr grinders, is almost nonexistent in this model. There’s nothing worse than having to stop a grind halfway through to pull a jammed bean out of the machine.
Bodum is known for their attention to design details, and they haven’t forgotten about this model either. They’ve chosen to offer it in five colors: black, white, green, red, and white, so you can coordinate with your existing appliances or show a bit of bold style!
