What is coffee without the bean? Hot water is what it is. The coffee bean is the fundamental ingredient that needs to be brewed to make coffee. The difference between decent coffee and great coffee is the bean's type of roast and when the bean was ground.
Every time you buy fresh coffee beans and ask the checkout person at the coffee shop to grind your beans you are opening up the "flavor cells" and causing your beans to begin losing their flavor rapidly. The purpose of grinding the beans is to create a larger surface area that will release the flavor and oils to the surrounding hot water. If coffee is prematurely exposed to air, it "breathes", leaving less and less flavor for the brew, when the water finally hits the bean.
It only takes a few moments to grind your own beans. The difference it makes will surprise you.
Burr grinders are said to be the best option for grinding coffee beans. Most Burr grinders include a compartment at the top of the grinder that holds the beans. This is an airtight compartment that will keep the beans fresh until you are ready to grind them. When you are ready to grind, simply select the amount of coffee you'd like to prepare and the Burr grinder will release that amount of beans to be ground.
Owning a coffee grinder and grinding coffee beans at your own home will give you the maximum experience of the true joy of coffee. Adding the Kitchenaid Pro Line Series KPCG100 Burr Coffee Mill is a dependable way to assure you're getting great coffee. It's what you deserve every moment you brew and taste a cup.

After looking at many grinders I decided to try this one. It is very well made, heavy duty, etc. I use either french press or poor over brewing and the factory default settings work very well at 1.5 for french press and 5 for poor over or drip. The grinds are very consistent and the operation is breeze. I do not make espresso so I have not tried to grind very fine. The manual clearly states that you must adjust the range of grind sizes to get very, very fine or course. It gives detailed instructions for those adjustments. As for the bottom glass container it is not nearly as thin and fragile as some say. It does sit a little low and a little dust escapes. As one reviewer suggested 2 cds placed under the glass snugs the fit. I am a recent purchaser so I can't speak to longevity but it has that Kitchen Aide quality feel and sound so I expect to use it a long time. They suggest that you change the burrs after 600-800 pounds of coffee and they are readily available for 30-40 bucks as are the glass containers should you break one.
The grind does become inconsistent if you do not keep it cleaned. It can get beans stuck in it and will start making mud. But the front just pops off and you can get the offending devils out.
I would recommend for anyone using a drip, percolator, french press or a manual pour over. I would not recommend if you are trying to get a good espresso grind. If I get an espresso machine I will probably upgrade to a more professional machine.
Within the user manual, there are very simple and explicit steps on how to adjust the burrs to create a finer grind. The finest setting has produced the best espresso we've been able to make, whole or pre-ground beans alike. The rest of the reviews lay out many of the other strengths and very few weaknesses of this machine, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that if you are buying this with the intent of making espresso, you will not be disappointed.
