This review is from: Melitta Coffee Grinder (Kitchen)
I use a Kyocera ceramic grinder. I have to say it's good, but not when you grind a whole batch at a time, cause it's manual. It takes me an hour or so to finish 1 lb bag of beans. By the end of grinding, I suffer from back, wrist and arm pains. It does consume all of my energy, and you end up sweating like hell.
I've been avoiding electric grinders for one reason actually, and that is they have a very short life span. Since I couldn't take it anymore with the manual grinding, although it never changes the taste of my coffee. I figured out, that it's about time to go electric. So I've made a research on amazon and found tons of them. I came across melitta by luck. Since I have been a loyal customer of them, by buying their famous paper filters. I do have to admit that they have some good coffee blends, I wouldn't compare it to 100% Kona ofcourse, which is my favorite coffee so far. They are still better than many of those market brand ones like nescafe, folgers, maxwell house and others.
Anyway let's not stray from the point here. All I can say, is thank god for making the right choice. This is an amazing grinder, and the company live up to its name with their quality stuff. It has a dial setting for grinding fines. It's a hands free device, so just press the on button and leave the rest to the device. It has a detachable top for easy cleaning. It has four selections of cup sizes staring from 4 and ending at 14. And oh my god, this thing is really fast, I've grounded the whole batch in almost 5 minutes only.
The coffee doesn't alter its taste after grinding, plus all the grinded beans look smooth and even after the whole process is complete. After drinking my 1st cup of fresh Kona coffee, it simply tastes amazing coming straight from the grinder. Get this grinder, believe me you wont regret it. God forbid, if anything happens to mine; I'm gonna stick with this brand and get another one.
