The Home Brew: A Look at Great Home Coffee Grinders

The Home Brew: A Look at Great Home Coffee Grinders

In our previous blog, we talked about the things to look out for when buying a coffee grinder for the home. With such a wide variety of options available in the market, it can get pretty daunting taking your pick. We decided to narrow the options down to some of our favorite coffee grinders across various price points and feature sets. This list is in no way meant to be a be all end all solution, but instead a focused look at some great coffee grinders for the home.

The Starter Grinder: Timemore C2

Plain Sight Coffee Roasters Philippines | The Starter Grinder: Timemore C2 At just P3,000, the Timemore C2 became quite the favorite among home brewers for being not just one of the most affordable grinders with steel burrs, but for also coming with a sturdiness you wouldn’t expect from something at this price point. The C2 provides consistency and reliability that an aspiring home brewer would need at the beginning of their coffee brewing journey.

Electric on a Budget: Yangchia/Feima 600n

Plain Sight Coffee Roasters Philippines | Electric on a Budget: Yangchia/Feima 600n If using a manual coffee grinder isn’t for you but you’re also on a budget, the inexpensive 600n makes a great case for itself. Widely available across different e-commerce sites under various brand names, the 600n provides a good amount of versatility at times that will allow you to grind coffee for various brewing styles from pour over, French press, to even espresso with the right tweaking.

The Home Base: Baratza Encore

Plain Sight Coffee Roasters Philippines | The Home Base: Baratza Encore Another favorite among home brewers and probably one of the best value coffee grinders overall, the Baratza Encore has a reputation that precedes it for being the electric grinder that home brewers and even small cafés keep around for quite a while thanks to its reliability in grinding coffee consistently well. The Encore works well for most brewing methods probably other than an espresso machine. For buyers looking to get one for their own, Baratza have released it in a new white color and an accent kit to give your grinder an interesting splash of color.

Feelin’ like a Pro: 1Zpresso JX Pro

Plain Sight Coffee Roasters Philippines | Feelin’ like a Pro: 1Zpresso JX Pro If you’re feeling up to the challenge of getting yourself a grinder for the long haul and have a knack for tinkering with all sorts of coffee brewing methods, the JX Pro might be the right grinder for you. Priced just a bit lower than the Encore, the JX Pro provides that heft that makes it feel like more than just a manual grinder. With over 200 grind “clicks” to choose from, it’s definitely made for the most discerning coffee brewer looking to find that sweet spot grind size for their brew of the day.

With the great number of coffee grinders available, and each having their own charms, and it’s definitely to each their own. Nonetheless, we hope these recommendations give you an easier time finding the right coffee grinder for your home.
