  1. I just recently started grinding my own espresso beans, and the difference in flavor is considerable – exactly the sort of big step up that James is talking about. Settled on a Capresso ceramic burr grinder, which does the job quickly and quietly for well under $200. Perhaps most importantly, your partner can sleep through the process. Retention is resolved with a couple of firm taps w/ my coffee cup (works with the stainless steel version; maybe not the best idea if you get the plastic case.)

  2. Funny enough, the handle can be removed from hand grinders, and it exposes a hex shaped bolt. Fits perfectly with my drill on low speed. High quality burr grinder at a fraction of the cost. You’re welcome 🙂

  3. I dont know most of the grinders mentioned. I think we get quite different brands in NZ and I live in Fiji where we have almost nothing. So we have to carry everything in. And source parts overseas. But I have a Mazzer Mini, its now well over 16 years old, as is my Vibiemme. They are looked after, still look pretty good, and function well. They are one of those investments that last and last. And my family and friends love it. My other halfs morning ritual is a bialetti stove top and having watched your mokka pot series can say he has a lot of it right, more than me, and i taught him 😀. We are lucky enough to have some good roasters here so we have access to fresh roasted beans although we have had air roasters and drum roasters and roasted our own beans we imported. So I love your videos.

  10. I have the Wilfa grinder and the retention issue is easily solved if you just pick it up and repeatedly smack the shit out of it 🙂 The noise is also incredibly jarring but placing it on a washcloth and covering it with another washcloth does turn the volume down to 75% in my experience. Still the worst part of my partners morning.

  11. I have a blade grinder and I thought it was pretty nice for the price before this video =P

    Ok, ok. I still like it but I can see why it's less than ideal. There aren't any plans for me to upgrade yet but I'll be keeping this video in mind for when I have enough money to start upgrading my coffee lounge. =D

  13. I like how he talks about saving money on precious grams of coffee when talking about a 400+ GBP grinder

  14. I went from filter coffee made with cheap ground coffee in a cheap brewer to french press with freshly ground expensive beans using a blade grinder. You have to shake it while grinding, gives you a more uniform grind. It was like entering a new world, having wasted my whole life until then drinking bad coffee. Now I own a bean to cup machine and still like the french press.

  15. I've not found flat burrs to grind more consistently than a well-designed conical burr.

  17. 12:20 Hand grinder is also loud. My neighbor asked me to close the kitchen door when grinding, because he can't hear his thoughts 😀

  19. Very good video! Thorough, clear and concise. Theoretical and practical. I wish you had a more text-book style (even more text book than this video) video series for extraction theory.

  20. I have a Brim grinder similar to the first electric one showcased in this video. He says it is stepped, but even though mine slightly makes a click as I turn it, I don't need to stop on the click. It is essentially stepless and I use it that way just fine.

  22. A professional woodworker might sharpen their chisel multiple times in a day. It's interesting that being able to have the burr sharpened doesn't seem to come up at all, other than the possibility of completely replacing it on higher-end machines.
