Coffee grinder – burr or blade?

For having a good cup of coffee, you need to equip a coffee grinder machine for grinding coffee. During the brewing process, chemical elements will be dissolved in water. The different combinations of chemicals lead to varying flavor of coffee. Using whole beans for brewing not only takes a long time but also is hard to extract the chemicals inside the beans. In order to have ideal extraction, we need to use a coffee grinder machine to grind coffee into small pieces.
There are two types of coffee grinders you can use at home: blade grinder and burr grinder. The blade grinder is made with a propeller shaped blade that chops the beans. It functions like a blender or a food processor. Coffee ground is uneven in size as the coffee grinder is repeatedly slicing the beans into pieces. The design of a blade coffee grinder does not allow users to adjust grind size. The fitness of the coffee ground is decided by how long the machine runs. With inconsistent grind size, it is hard to have good extraction of coffee.
Unlike the blade grinders, burr coffee grinders crush the beans to a preset coarseness. Therefore, they can give a much more even grind. With consistent grind size, you can enjoy an amazing cup of home at home every day.

Portable coffee grinder 

Burr coffee grinders can be manual or electric. Without the electric power source, the construction of the manual grinder can be simplified. The compact design is one of the reasons why many people would like to have a manual coffee grinder in Hong Kong. However, the grinding process takes time. Users have to grind coffee manually. The burr inside the grinder cannot be large so users can grind the beans more easily. It will lead to less grind size setting available.
Many consumers may hesitate to purchase an electric coffee grinder machine because of the size of the machine. Without doubt, electric coffee grinders have more complicated construction so the size may be bigger than a manual grinder. However, electric coffee grinder can be small and portable.

Flat Burr or Conical Burr

Burr coffee grinder can be divided into two types, conical burr and flat burr. Conical burr grinds coffee into particles with two serrated rings, an outer serrated burr and a cone shaped burr in the center. The distance between these two rings determines the size of the coffee ground. The closer they are the finer the grind. With the design of conical burr, coffee grounds it creates are bimodal. That means you can get both coarse and fine coffee grounds at the same time. As conical burr grinders produce less fine coffee grounds, these grinders are generally recommended for making hand drip or pour over which request less fine coffee grounds for brewing.

The construction of flat burr is different from conical burr. Flat burrs have two donut-shaped burrs which face one another with very sharp edges. The beans are pushed through and crushed to their desired size due to the distance between the burrs. Coffee grounds are even and consistent that can enrich the taste and aroma of the coffee. Flat burr coffee grinders normally can create more fine coffee grounds due to the design so they are recommended for making espresso or moka pot.
