Grinders we rate

These are grinders we've used and serviced and are great value for money.

We've used and repaired dozens of home grinders and asked a handful of independent technicians which grinders they recommend. We all had very similar conclusions

For home espresso:

These grinders don't break, are very easy to change burrs and produce a good grind consistency allowing proper pressure and consequential hydrolysis to occur.
