When people visit our roastery, one of the most common questions is, “what are the most important keys to brewing great coffee.” The answer is 1) tasteless water; and 2) buy a good burr grinder. Dump that blade grinder you have been using for years because it can never deliver the cup of coffee a good conical burr grinder can. The Bodum Bistro Burr Grinder crushes beans between stainless steel conical burrs instead of slicing them which preserves bean’s intrinsic flavor and aroma. Bodum released this model with plastic hoppers to make one of the only reasonably priced, quality burr grinders on the market. You just can’t beat the quality at this price.
