If you enjoy your coffee fresh each morning then one of the best ways is to pick yourself up a coffee grinder, and grind the beans of your choice.
When you buy your coffee already ground up from the grocery stores, you will notice that it is sealed tight to prevent it reacting with air and have oxidization start.
If you find sometimes that your premixed coffee has an off taste or a little bitter, then it most likely has had a reaction with air.
So for your freshest brew every time is best to grind the beans just before making your coffee.
There is a large variety of grinders on the market today to chose from, and being produce by well known brands.
The Cuisinart Supreme Grind is one of the better grinders, and comes with three settings, coarse, medium, and fine.
Also for each of the three settings there are six different grinds to chose from, so you end up with eighteen different sizes for the grind.
In about a minute it will grind up enough beans for eighteen cups, so there is very little waiting time.
The blade grinders are not very expensive to buy, as they consist of just a stainless steel blade on the end of a motor.
As the blade is not overly sharp it will grind the beans finer the longer you let it run.
And many of these are designed so the blade will not spin unless the lid is properly attached which is a good safety factor.
The burr grinders are more expensive, but give much more control over the grind of the beans.
An example of one of the more affordable burr grinders is the Capresso 560 Infinity.
It comes with sixteen different settings from the very fine up to the more course grinds.
The Capresso Infinity has a slow grind so that the beans don’t heat up during the grind, and when you turn it on the neighbors can still get some sleep.
This model is usually priced from about eighty dollars and up, so if your looking for a budget friendly model then this is a good choice.
The hand coffee grinders are ideal if your off on a camping trip, or to use for a day of hiking because of there small size.
Some of these come with a rubber base so you don’t slide all over the place when your turning the handle for the grind.
The bottoms will hold enough of your grind for most morning coffees.
So if your looking for a grinder that is very portable, and you don’t mind grinding the beans by hand then try one of these out.
The Hario Skerton Ceramic coffee mill is one that works well, plus there are many more on the market to chose from.
As this one is ceramic there is little chance of rusting, if you happen to take it into a wet environment.
