I've been using a 20+ year old grinder that my parents lent me a few years back, and that is finally on the fritz. The Bodum Bistro Burr grinder seems to be the one everyone is recommending on here but it's just a smidge out of my price range. Any recommendations for one under 100$, I've been eyeballing the Saeco CA6804, or should I just save for the Bodum?
$20......yes TWENTY at Goodwill brand new in box never used!!!! SCORE first Burr grinder for me, SO much better
I purchased the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder for my wife an anniversary gift, 5 months ago. the grind quality is very good, it has a small footprint on the kitchen countertop and it is pretty quiet. the draw back is that the hopper is too small, the collector has a lot of static and the grinds stick to the lid and then the body. I grew up with the manual Cuisinart blade grinders and the Cuisinart DBM-8, which broke on us after about 2 years. I would buy the Bodum again though.
I would save the money for a Baratza encore, about $130. It is by far the best you can get for the money. It is very consistent grind to grind, and has a very good particle size to incidence ratio.
