The best coffee grinders – and why you should always buy a burr on a blade Wine News

WWhether you are a fully initiated coffee snob or are ready to take the next step in the world of geekery coffee, one of the most important considerations in your quest for the perfect everyday cup is your home coffee grinder. (or lack thereof).

Just like all the other variables to consider (including coffee shrub variety, country of origin, height of growth, date of roast, method of brewing), consistency and precision of the way you grind your coffee has a major impact on the flavor and texture of the cup of joe you end up with.

Time is also running out, according to Alex Spampinato, a coffee lover at 200 Degrees Barista School: coffee tastes better the sooner it is brewed after the beans have been ground. If you are a (guilty) perfectionist, that means a homemade grinder is a must.

With that in mind, you may be inclined to grind fresh beans every time, but if you’re not in the morning (or the noise threatens to wake the rest of the house), it’s still perfectly okay to pre-. grind. your beans are ready for the next day or week. Then simply seal them in an airtight container and store them in a cool, dry place. According to Kilner, coffee ground in a traditional hand grinder (see our review below) can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
