A coffee grinder is a time-consuming task. The speed you need is not too fast, or too slow, as in the game of Goldilocks & the Three Bears – continue reading?
High-speed grinders are our first topic. These grinders can grind beans quickly and work much like a Ferrari on freeway. These grinders are perfect for people on the go and who want their coffee to be ready in no time. These grinders have their limitations, just like a Ferrari. High-speed grinders can heat the beans, causing the oils to evaporate. The result is a cup of coffee that has less flavor.
A second option is the low-speed grind. These grinders can take their time grinding your beans much like a Prius during a Sunday driving. These grinders are perfect for anyone who wants to take the time to grind their beans and enjoy a better cup of coffee. But they do have some disadvantages just like a Prius. They are generally more expensive, and can grind your beans much more slowly.
Let’s see, now what? The characteristics that you seek in a grinder will determine the outcome. If you have limited time or don’t mind giving up some of the taste, a highspeed grinder is a great option. You can also use a low speed grinder if your budget allows for more time, you enjoy the process more, or you prefer your coffee to taste better.
Both high-speed or low-speed grinders can have advantages and drawbacks. A high-speed grinder may be suitable for a quick grind. But, if you want a more flavorful cup of coffee, a low speed grinder is better. Everything is up to your preference, budget, and how important speed or flavor preservation are to yourself.
