Top 10 Best Coffee Grinders – small blade mill grinders

While burr grinder are preferred, blade coffee grinders will also do the job for low volume and infrequent use. It also has a small footprint and takes up less storage space.

Getting your ground coffee to the right size is a science on its own. Depending on your method of preparation and personal preference, the right grinder will give you the options you need.

If you are not in a hurry, coarse ground coffee is suitable for slow brewing. On the other hand, if you like your coffee strong, you will be looking at grinders that make fine ground coffee.

Different coffee machines work best with different grind sizes, so what works well in a cafetiere will produce dreadful coffee in an espresso machine.

Coffee can be ground with either a blade (chopped) or a burr (crushed). Blade grinders chop and re-chop each bean turning them into thousands of coffee fragments. The longer you chop the finer the blend becomes.


For ease of use, look for automatic grinders with cup selector and grind size (coarse, medium, fine) selector which takes the guessing work out of grinding your coffee beans.

But if you prefer to have more control over your ground coffee, any push button or lid controlled unit will suit you while you observe the length of time and grind size through the transparent lid. You will be the best judge for the right type of ground bean you need.
