Blade Coffee Grinders
Blade coffee grinders provide a simple, cost effective means to grind coffee beans for your morning brew. These grinders utilize a blade that spins very fast to pulverize the coffee beans, a process similar to crushing ice in a blender. Grind fineness is varied based on the amount of time you grind. The primary disadvantages of blade grinders are the inability to provide a very consistent (uniform) grind fineness and also heat generated by friction at the bean can destroy some of the coffee flavor. Espresso Zone only recommends these for brewing methods that require a coarser grind, such as filter drip, percolator and French press.
