How to choose the right coffee grinder
There are a few things to consider when choosing the right coffee grinder for you:
Coffee Grinder Sizes
Firstly, consider the correct size of coffee grinder that you may need - see our Small, Medium and Large coffee grinders pages. There's no use grinding way to much or too little coffee - it needs to be as freshly ground as possible to get maximum flavour (grinding lots then storing it defeats the object).

Coffee Grinder Types - Burr grinders, blade grinders or manual grinders
Next, you may want to choose between a manual or electric coffee grinder. Manual grinders (or hand coffee grinder), look fantastic, and it can certainly give you a great sense of satisfaction, knowing that you are drinking a cup of coffee made from beans that you ground by hand yourself. But manual grinding can take a while, and some effort, which might not always be the best start to a morning - especially before your cup of coffee!
In which case you will probably prefer an electric grinder. There are 2 types of electric coffee grinder you can buy - either a burr or blade grinder. Coffee experts agree that a burr coffee grinder, especially a machine with "conical burrs" will give a better, more even grind, compared to the other type of electric grinder, the blade grinder. A burr grinder presses, or crushes, the beans under its burrs, which means that all the beans are ground finely and evenly. A burr grinder is going to be a bit more expensive than a blade grinder, but still needn't cost the earth. Both Dualit and Krups offer some excellent value for money burr grinders, from around £40 to £80.
A blade grinder, as the name suggests, uses blades to chop the beans. These little coffee grinders can be very effective, and a good one can be found for around £20 or less! For example, see the Krups Twin Blade coffee mill. This model has been around for a while and is used by many coffee lovers worldwide. Plus you can use it to grind spices and herbs.
