If you are a coffee lover, a coffee grinder will be a very familiar tool to you. For the coffee connoisseur, grinding coffee is not only the first step but it is one of the most important steps to a great tasting cup of coffee. The authors of The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee insist “any barista will tell you that the single most important piece of gear in the coffee-making chain is the grinder. So buy your grinder first!”
One of the key benefits of the Hario Coffee Grinders, is the ceramic burr mechanism which is designed to mill coffee beans consistently. Burr grinders also offer precision and versatility which means you can choose the type of grind you wish to achieve, from coarse, medium to very fine. One step further in your quest to achieving that perfect brew is the Hario electric grinder – 44 settings, ensuring you achieve the optimal grind and this particular grinder uses stainless steel conical burrs.
Types of Grind:

Tips for achieving the best grind for your desired coffee:
- Use freshly roasted coffee beans - this is the most important aspect of any manual brew.
- Use the ground coffee on the same day. The longer you leave freshly ground beans, the more the flavours and aromas begin to deplete - so enjoy that coffee right away!
- If you are using a manual method, put the grinder down as you’re grinding (all Hario Skerton grinders have an anti-slip sleeve at the bottom to help stabilise this process.)
- Once a month, take apart and clean your grinder and its burrs gently with water and a small amount of soap - super easy to clean and will not rust.
