Product Description

Product Description

Instead of crushing the coffee beans like most grinders, the Antigua Electric Burr Grinder features a sharp conical blade that deftly cuts the beans to release the maximum amount of flavor. An extra-large bean hopper holds up to 1/2 lb. of beans, or 8 cups, and an inlet cover easily handles beans rich in oil. Adjust the settings to produce powder that's fine, coarse or somewhere in-between and use the time/quantity switch to control the length of the grind cycle. An auto shutoff function protects the gears from accidentally grinding stones, and the powerful motor operates at a noiseless 750 rpm. An airtight lid prevents the coffee from losing its aroma, and a small storage compartment keeps excess cord neatly hidden. Imported.

Coffee connoisseurs know that even with excellent coffee beans, the perfect water, and a high-quality brewing machine, coffee still will not be good without the right grind. Bodum's Antigua grinder produces a superior grind by using a sharp, hand-forged, conical stainless-steel blade so that the coffee is cut rather than crushed. An inlet cover over the blade makes it easy to grind oily beans. In addition, the two-step grinding gear has a powerful motor so that the rotation is quiet and occurs at low speeds. This keeps the beans from overheating, thereby retaining the coffee's flavor and aroma.

Measuring 8 by 10-1/2 inches, the Antigua is designed to be a smaller version of professional burr grinders for in-home use, occupying only as much counter space as a traditional 10-cup coffeemaker. Although the unit is compact, the bean container can hold up to 1/2 pound of coffee beans at a time. An airtight lid fits on the bean container and keeps beans from losing their aroma. Three grinding settings let drinkers choose their grind: fine for espresso, medium for filter coffee machines, or coarse for French press coffeemakers (or anywhere in between settings if an intermediate-level grind is desired). The timer/quantity control sets the number of minutes the beans will be grind, based on how many cups of coffee are being brewed, what type of beans are being used, and what the level of grind is. Both the bean container and the ground coffee container are transparent to monitor the grinding process, and the ground coffee container easily pulls out of the grinder for use.

An automatic power cut-out feature prevents permanent damage to the grinder by turning off the grinding gear in the event that a stone finds its way into the Antigua. The grinding gear also can be disassembled for cleaning. The Antigua comes with adequate power cord storage beneath the unit for excess cord length and a .25-ounce coffee scoop. --Cristina Vaamonde

Static electricity was also a problem.

I cannot attest to whether it produces an acceptable espresso grind, because I don't have an espresso machine.

Ammazon requires a "Star" rating this gets ZERO stars even though they made me post one star.

I read a LOT of reviews on burr grinders before I purchased this unit. I will be honest, I was tempted to return it until I came to my senses. Before I explain what i mean by 'came to my senses' lets go over some basic reality checks.

To get a fantastic cup of coffee one needs a couple of combined elements.

1.Filtered Water is a must ! (If your Pur or Brita is 5 months old, replace it!)

2.Coffee Maker that brews at the proper temperature (95-98 ºC)

3.Slow brew for proper flavor extraction. Why pay for nice coffee if you don't even get the flavor out of it !

If your coffee maker brags about the fact that it makes a full pot of coffee in 2 minutes, then you should just throw it away now.

4.An even grind of the beans will ensure a smooth and robust flavor. Standard grinders produce what many call 'boulders and dust" meaning they have very large course grounds mixed with grinds meant for espresso. Grinds that are too fine will seep into your coffee. Gritty coffee .. ew[...]

5. Caribou Coffe says to use 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per 8oz cup. I think that comes out too strong and is just a waste of expensive coffee. On average I just use 1 HUGE scoop per cup, or if I am feeling extra fancy, 1.5 scoops per cup. (coffee turns out smooth and robust)

So with that said, lets go into the Bodum Antigua.

1. I did a french press grind in a standard 20.00 grinder. (Gave a valiant effort and took my time) and then set the antigua to a course grind. When I spread them out and did an honest appraisal, I found that the Bodum grinder had a greater ratio of evenly ground beans over the 20.00 standard grinder.

I first heard about this grinder from my local coffeehouse They give them away when you join the safari expedition. Buy at least three lb. of coffee every 4 or 6 weeks at bargain prices and get a free gift from a choice of products after a set time. [...] Truly fabulous and very fresh coffee.

This coffee grinder doesn't seem to ever need cleaning unless it gets a rock in the blades. Why? Because they had the ingenius idea of putting the whole on the top instead of at the side where the ground coffee exits thus gravity keeps the pathway clear. I have never cleaned it in the last 2 months I have had it. It does produce some static but there are some tips to reducing that.
1. Use very fresh beans that you can see the oils on. They should stick to the sides of the glass you keep them in.
2. Never chill or freeze your beans. This greatly increases the chance of static. Store them in a vacuum sealed canister like a Tilia or other air tight lidded jar suitable for coffee.
3. Let them sit a minute in the container after grinding to allow any accumulated electricity to subside.
4. Stick a metal coffee scoop (Starbucks sells them even though I no longer buy their beans.) in the grinds as you slowly open the container they grind into. (best trick of all)
I find that doing all these simple things greatly reduces the chance of static and mess.

I don't understand why people complain about the timer. If it doesn't make enough run it some more. Making too much? Swivel the top toward the right and it will stop grinding immediately. I think maybe there were some design flaws on some earlier models or a bunch of people got some lemons. I have looked at many reviews for this product on other websites and mostly, people highly praise the Bodum.

What is the problem? We've had this grinder for three years. We have never had a single problem. When we bought it, it was the only grinder we could find that allowed you to choose how fine/coarse you wanted to grind the beans. We've used it ever since. It grinds beautifully for both our drip pot and our French Press.
It does create static electricity, but so does every other grinder we've ever had. The best part is the construction. It's still going strong after 1,000+ uses! We love it!

This burr grinder is companion to my Bodum water kettle and Bodum mini-Santos electric coffee maker, which uses beans stored in my Bodum glass jars.
I like Bodum design.
I use the Antigua for one grind only: the medium/Santos grind. It works fine for that and is a great improvement over using a whizzy blade/spice grinder. I cannot attest to whether it produces an acceptable espresso grind, because I don't have an espresso machine.
I'm starting to think that Bodum afficionados fall on the Mac side of the Mac/PC divide, but I could be wrong. Bodum produces products that look great and function in their own special way...if you don't want to do things the Bodum way, don't make the mistake of choosing one of their products, I guess.
Some caveats:
1. The timer knob that controls the duration of grind (and thus amount of coffee ground) seems potentially flimsy. Don't run past it wearing a lot of loose clothing because you may snag it and pull it off...also don't hammer nails with the timer knob, or hold onto the knob while spinning the grinder about your head. Just gently turn the knob.
2. Said knob also has questionable settings: the 3 cup setting produces 1/4 of the amount of coffee the Santos is supposed to use for 3 cups, so its settings don't even correspond to the secret enchanted world of Bodum's own standards. Just find the setting that works for you and use it.
3. This is the BIGGEST PROBLEM with this machine and the reason I've rewritten this part of the review: the mess. This machine has a SEVERE problem with static electricity causing ground coffee to go everywhere. I know, it sounds crazy, but it's true.
