Default Coffee Grinder - The kitchen appliance type


Hi Guys,

My Current coffee grinder (russel Hobbs) has given up so I am looking for another one..

It needs to be adjustable and a burr grinder and preferably under R1000

For home use, I would recommend the Krups GVX2. Boardmans used to stock Krups products.

Here is a supplier

Using the Krups for years now. You can adjust the amount and the grinds.
The smaller ones are cutters, and can burn the beans sometimes

I do notice a lot of static builds up in the container , and some coffee sticks to the side.
But not a problem

Andrew, I had the Russel&Hobbs one. I found that it didn't grind fine enough for esppreso. So it will depend what coffee maker you have. It is probably fine for drip filter and french press coffee bit IMHO not for an espresso machine. It also doesn't provide a uniform grind. lots of course grinds with lots of dust mixed inbetween. The R&H model is not a true burr grinder but a pseudo burr grinder, it is a lot more like the cheap blade grinders you get.

My wife bought me the same Krupps grinder Thys mentioned and it has a much better range from very fine to course.

Some of us take our "Boere troos" very seriusly! Thats alot of Mula to spend on a grinder, I usualy get the shiffers when SWAMBO enters @Home.

I have used the Russel Hobbs grinder for years now, its never let me down.

I have an old Peugeot coffee grinder that still does the job perfectly.
