Burr Coffee Grinders

Coffee grinder machine is essential for having a good cup of coffee. There are two types of coffee grinders – burr grinder and blade grinder. The blade grinder is made with a propeller shaped blade that chops the beans. It functions like a blender or a food processor. Many coffee grinders and brew coffee maker machines in Hong Kong, whether at office or at home, are using blade grinder. The grinder can grind faster than a burr grinder, but coffee ground can become uneven in size which will lead to a bad tasting cup of coffee. Also, the design of the blades does not allow users to adjust grind size.

Unlike blade grinders, burr coffee grinders in Hong Kong have more advantages. The user can adjust the grind size so they can make various coffee drinks with it. As the grinder “grinds” coffee instead of “chopping” the beans, users can get consistent coffee grounds which can enrich the flavours of their coffee. In practice, burr grinders tend to grind beans slower but the slow speed can prevent the motor heating up the coffee grounds.



Conical Burr Coffee Grinder Machines

Conical burr and flat burr are two popular types of burr grinders. The conical and flat burrs both grind coffee in the same way. There are two serrated rings. One moves against the other with jagged edges. Since the beans go between the two rings, they are ground to a uniform size. The difference between the two types of burrs is the shape of their rings, and offers various advantages over blade grinders, like those found in coffee maker types.

Conical burrs have an outer serrated burr and a cone-shaped burr in the center. The beans will be pulled into the grinding area when the center burr spins. With the design of conical burr, the coffee grounds it produces are bimodal. That means you can get both coarse and fine coffee grounds. As conical burr grinder produces less fine coffee grounds, some people do not recommend it for making espressos. Hence, this type of grinder is more suitable for making coffee drinks that do not need so much fine coffee grounds, such as drip coffee.

Palico Aroma Coffee Grinder is a smart choice for an electric coffee grinder in Hong Kong. This coffee grinder machine at its price has many advantages: conical burr with 18 different settings that can be able to make espresso, drip or French press; removable hopper for easy cleaning and maintenance; timer for pre-set grind time; sleek stylish cosmetic outlook; large capacity for up to 100g beans.

Also, this coffee grinder machine has an inexpensive price. The price of conical burr coffee grinder in Hong Kong is quite expensive, but the grinder is similar to many premium hand grinders. To enjoy a tasty cup of coffee, it is worth it to have this coffee grinder at home or at the office.

 


Flat Burr Coffee Grinder Machines

Flat burrs have two donut-shaped burrs which face one another with very sharp edges. With the design of flat burrs, beans can stay between two burrs, and they will be perfectly ground up. Therefore, coffee grounds are even and consistent, so it can enrich the taste and aroma of the coffee. As flat burr can produce fine coffee grounds, it is more suitable for making espresso.
