Which Coffee Bean Grinder
Guide to Buying a Coffee Grinder.
Buying a coffee grinder to suit your needs correctly is very important. If you are only serving 10 cups an hour then you don’t need a grinder with a big motor. But if you’re going to be busy through long periods and your restaurant, café, bar or sandwich shop is thriving, you should buy a big grinder with a big motor. Buying the right grinder to suit your needs can make a big difference to your long-term outlay. The right size coffee grinder can last you 10 years, but the wrong coffee grinder for your needs and you could burn it out within the year! Always buy a grinder with big blades and a relatively slow number of rotations per minute. This will mean that although your grinder is spinning slower, your blades are bigger and the balance is better, producing a much better coffee output than a grinder with smaller blades and a high speed motor, with the same amount of ground coffee output per hour. The ground coffee is then ready for use in the same amount of time, but the result is your coffee is not in any way burnt, keeping in the maximum amount of taste. A big coffee grinder does not necessarily mean a faster grinder. In fact a lot of big grinders operate at relatively small amounts of rotations per minute, hence the importance of big blades. If you’re potential chosen vendor has only one or two different grinders on offer then the chances are that you will end up with a grinder that does not suit your needs, this may cost you in the long run.
