Default coffe grinder

Hi,
I've my old coffee grinder broken 2 days ago. I was using it only for 4 months, so I'm boiling over. It was bought abroad, so there is no opportunity to return it back and of course, there was no warranty at all. Do you know any good options?

Do you have a blender will work just as well, but don’t grind too fine

we go to Canada fishing every year, long trip in not near stores. The person buying coffee bought whole bean by mistake. Ended up putting it in a rubber glove and smashing it (cracked finger coffee) was born. Did not work too bad.

Use a hammer. Both on the grinder and on your coffee.

Already done Anyway, I'm looking for a new one. Now I'm choosing out of these options. I don't want to buy an expensive grinder, so the cheaper the better or there are some ropes?

I'd go with the Krups. Just note that if you need to grind for 12 cups of coffee, you may need to do two batches in the grinder to meet the amount needed. I've had a Cuisinart grinder about the same size as the Krups you pictured for many years - still purring along.

I'm sure you noted that one of those grinders on the ratings page you linked to is a "burr" grinder, where you hand-crank to grind the beans. Burr grinding gets much higher reviews than electric grinding, (creates a much more uniform size grind than electric) but you're doing the work to grind. Much quieter than electric grinding, though.

Default Coffee Grinder

Go to any Walmart. Buy a Krups Coffee Grinder for about $20. They last for years. You can also get one at Amazon and have it delivered to you.

Electric burr grinders are readily available, but I don't know how they compare to hand-crank burr grinders. But burr grinding supposedly produces superior results.

If you are just making a single cup of coffee for yourself the manual burr grinders such as the Hario and Kyocera are perfect. They are almost identical and the I can't tell the actual ceramic burrs apart. They are interchangeable. I have three of them and use them mostly for travel. Hand grinders in addition to being the least expensive burr grinders are also the easiest to disassemble to clean. Very strongly suggest not buying any kind of blade grinder. As alluded to in your link they are all crap unless you have absolutely no regard for a good tasting cup of coffee. For that matter don't use a blender either, which is nothing but a large blade grinder. My electric grinder is a Breville but they are high end home burr grinders and usually go for about $200, but I understand that most will not want to make that investment. A number of posts have suggested Krups but Krups makes all kinds of grinders including the inferior blade type grinders.

with a burr grinder one can control the size of the grind from coarse to fine. how you brew your coffee will determine a particular grind -- coarse for french press, for instance, fine for espresso, and so forth.

I believe i saw an electric burr grinder at walmart for around sixty bucks.

I gave myself a green coffee bean roaster for xmas so i'm slowly learning about this stuff and still trying to brew the 'perfect' cup.
