As you examine the grind and brew coffee maker that you intend to purchase, you will be indecisive on two classifications. One, you have to decide on the mode of operation. Should you go for the manual or the electrical grind and brew coffee maker? The second classification is on the kind of mechanism integrated in the coffee maker. The two choices are burr and blade.
On the first classification – operation
The manual is a very straightforward process. The grinder is manually operated which will then rotate against the plate. You have to supervise the manual operation. The electrical grinder on the other hand makes use of electric motor. You just plug your coffee maker, turn it on and the operation goes without personal assistance.
The burr and blade are the choices for mechanism. The blade turns inside the bean container. The contact between the beans and the blade is at random and thus resulting to irregular shapes and sizes. This is in contrast to the burr grinding mechanism which is very refined and consistent. The burr is like a wheel that has a flat or cone shape. The beans go through uniform spaces thus the ground beans have almost the same sizes and shapes. The burr grinder is slower in speed.
The grind and brew coffee maker may be more expensive. The options for models are limited. However, if you find the right grind and brew coffee maker, you enjoy nothing but the freshest coffee.
