Product Description

Having freshly ground coffee at hand makes all the difference when brewing the perfect cup of coffee! Bodum‘s New & Improved ANTIGUA electric coffee grinder was updated in several aspects in 2007, including a wider range of grinding from coarse to fine and a convenient instant grind feature. The conical burr grinder with its vast advantages was kept the same. The burr grinder allows you to match the coarseness of the grind to your preferred brewing method. Simply twist the bean container on top to produce a fine ground for espresso and a coarse one suitable for French press coffee. There are eight preset grind settings marked on the Antigua, plus you can choose any intermediate position. The ANTIGUA can be used to grind all kinds of roasts, from the oily espressos to lighter and dryer roasts. Moreover, the ANTIGUA is unlikely to clog up with remains of ground coffee provided that you empty the ground coffee container after each 40-second grinding cycle. The timer quantity/control allows for an amount of up to 2.8oz/80gr of coarse ground coffee and up to 1.4oz/40gr of fine ground coffee. The effects of static electricity inherent in all home grinders and we have done our best to reduce the amount of coffee mess in the update. Our new instant-touch button allows you to preset the grinding time for your preferred amount of coffee. You will need to experiment a few times, but once you know how much time the machine needs to run for the amount of coffee you desire, just leave the time in place and each time you wan to grind all that you need to do is touch th red button and the coffee will grind the exact amount you desire. The Bodum design department has scaled this professional grinder down to the smallest possible size without sacrificing the strength of the motor and grinding mechanism. 1-year limited warranty.

Customer Reviews

While it is a bit pricier than some others, the difference is certainly well worth it to me.

This leads me to leave it on all the time since it's a little bit annoying to have to turn the machine around to turn it off.
Damon Ciarelli
It has been grinding for a long time now and seems to be working as good as it did the first day I used it.

i owned this grinder for 10 years and it always worked perfectly. i believe i tried to grind too much coffee one day, too fast and inadvertantly burned out the motor. the only trouble with my first bodum was that the little cup holding the already ground coffee fit pretty loosely, so i had to hold it closed while the coffee was grinding, or else i would have ground coffee all over the counter. i read the reviews of all the coffee grinders available, and they all seemed somehow even more problematic as far as the hopper size, the shape of the cup holding the ground coffee, etc. i finally decided to spend the extra money and just get another bodum,and was pleasantly surprised to see that improvements had occured in 10 years. the cup holding the ground coffee now has a little tab that keeps it securely in place. there is less vibration while grinding, and while still not whisper quiet, it definitely is not as noisy. the hopper holds about 12 0zs. of beans, the lid fits securely on the hopper, and the switch has a variety of settings depending on how much coffee you want to grind. it has a wide range of grind settings from espresso to french roast that work well. all inall it seems to be as no fuss as a grinder can get without spending the really big money. it ginds the beans easily and reliably, i never had to clean it in 10 years, aside from taking a cloth and wiping out the hopper fromm time to time when it was empty. all the ground coffe goes immediately into the cup, so there never any stale coffee being held in the grinder. my only complaint would be; occasionally, particularly when grinding many ponds of oily beans in a row, unit needs too be shaken a bit to loosen the beans when they get a little stuck. for that reason i give it only a 4 star rating

I purchased this grinder along with a coffee press (the Bodum Chambord 8-Cup Coffee Press) as part of an "upgrade" of my coffee experience.

Overall, I'm not disappointed. The burr grinder does provide a more even grind size, and it does make a positive difference, even for a regular old drip coffee maker. The bean hopper is also pretty handy.

It's a bit tricky to clean, so invest in a pack of pipe cleaners or something to clean around the "intake" and the portions of the grinder that aren't removable.

Noise-wise, it's no louder than my old blade grinder; maybe even a bit quieter. It takes up more counter space, of course. But since moving to a coffee press, the grinder occupies the spot of my old drip maker, so it's not a problem.

The only really annoying thing I've found is the container that holds the ground coffee after its dispensed. It's clear plastic, and as is typical has a mild static electric charge. The ground coffee bits react to this "electric field" and have a tendency to fly around, often onto the counter. So expect to clean up stray coffee grounds after each use.

The only reason not to buy this grinder is because it was specifically designed to fail prematurely. It's spelled out right there in the owner's manual. Quote from manual (grammar and spelling verbatim):

"Warning: In order to prevent the motor from overheating, do not grind more than 1 complete unit (1x40 seconds) in succession. After wait 10 Min. to let the motor cool down befor restart.

After each grinded unit (40 seconds), empty the coffee container. This prevents the motor overheating."

So, you can't safely grind more than 40 seconds without overheating motor, you must wait 10 minutes between grinds and it doesn't grind enough in 40 seconds for a 8 cup pot. You'll get about 40g in the 40 seconds, I use about 55g for a 8 cup pot. So I need to grind some, go do something for 10 minutes then come back to finish grinding?? That's insane, especially for a grinder in this price range.

If running the grinder for 40 seconds pushes it to the margin of failure, that's a poor design and it will likely fail prematurely, maybe 1-3 years. It's Not designed to last.

At this price point I 5-10 years of service for 1 pot a day is a reasonable expectation.
My $25 Melita flat burr grinder is still working after 12 years of daily use (happily spraying dust all over my counter).

I had to return it as I refuse to shell out this kind money for something that won't last. If I have to replace it in 3 years then I'm spending more money then I would on a Kitchenaid, only I'll likely have to buy still yet another one 3 years after that.

Note that they re-designed this grinder in 2007, so any reports of it lasting 10 years are for a different grinder (I believe it had a metal housing and was better built).

Getting the grind right may take you a few beans but the grind has been consistent. The hopper is large and the output is much cleaner than my last. I don't spill grounds ever time I pull the cup out.

Dear Coffee Comrades . . . . I'm very pleased with the grinding action of the Bodum unit.
Previously I owned a Braun blade grinder which just " hacks away " at the bean. The conical
grinding wheels of the Bodum does a perfect job of breaking & grinding the bean. Now what puzzled me from another reviewer comments, was the stray grinds that are statically charged and fly all over the place. This is a nusiance because the Bodum unit seems so well designed to prevent it - the grinding cup is shielded etc.

Well I discovered it's the beans - not the grinder's fault.

My first bag of beans were too close to the expiration date and had less moisture. Result - fly away grinds. A fresh bag of beans solved the problem. The grind made a neat pile inside the holder cup; and poured cleanly into my expresso holder.

Moreover don't put more than a few days beans in the hopper. Just a slight drop in moisture content affects the static charge on the bean.

Any coffee lover will appreciate the flavour from beans ground an instance before
brewing - the Bodum Grinder is an excellent appliance.
