Quote from FrothyBits :
Capresso Burr Grinder at Costco has served me well for 3 years from French press, pour over and cafe quality espresso. I've never quite realized until my newest Caliphon espresso maker just how important the grind is. I can take a lower level lavazza and just by grinding properly extract a reasonable taste level. But I do appreciate this deal and delonghi does make great machines. I've owned two of their espresso machines at the lower end that were great.
+1 for capresso burr grinder. Mine is almost 10 years old with virtually daily use and it basically needs no maintenance. I pull it apart once a year for deep cleaning but it's longevity and consistency has kept me happy.

Sorry you really get what you pay for depending if you actually get good quality single sourced beans.

If you understand that then you certainly aren't looking at this grinder but are trying to buy this niche zero for $700 https://www.nichecoffee.co.uk

I do want to say I would go baratza if you are looking for budget grinders.

Stupid question: Is there a (preferably cheap-ish) grinder that I can buy that is "non-stick" for lack of a better word? I don't care about grind consistency that much, just have OCD about bits getting stuck in the grinder.

Ultimate aero press tip for you frugal peeps out there... when your plunger is no longer snug because you've made 17,000 coffees with your aero press, pop the rubber off. Microwave a small bowl of food grade mineral oil, just enough to cover the stopper for 30-45 seconds. Carefully put the bowl on the counter and put the rubber pice in the oil. Let it sit for a few hours. Wipe the plunger off, it is now nice and snug again.

Quote from JimBanville :
Just an FYI if you're spending money on a grinder for drip coffee, America's Test Kitchen pitted their "best" burr grinder against their "best" cheap blade grinder in a blind taste test. After the results showed none of the tasters could pick which was which, they did the test again, and again, and again. Then they added some coffee "experts" into the groups of tasters. Even they couldn't tell burr ground from blade ground for the drip coffee. The info is on their webpage and there's a couple videos on YouTube of the testing. In the end they recommend a burr grinder for drip coffee for convenience, not taste.
Great, the church of blind A/B testing has escaped the audio world and infected the coffee domain.

Blind testing feels so perfectly amazingly scientific and proof that everyone who thinks they can tell a difference is wrong.

All it really tells you is that it's extremely difficult to remember differences in weak sensory perceptions like sound and taste.

Difficult to remember does not mean no difference, even if it makes you feel soooo superior to say so.

On topic: I have this grinder! It's a great burr, I'm using it for espresso, and it's not perfect but it's pretty darn good for the price. Definitely worth it at this price!

Lol. Read the testing notes. There were differences in taste. It's just that no one could reliably pick which was blade ground and which was burr ground. If burr ground coffee grounds were so superior in taste over blade ground, then surely someone in the test could have been able to reliably pick it out. They couldn't.
I don't know what you're referencing as afar as A/B'ing speakers. I've done it and I've heard immediate differences. The KEF was brighter with weaker bass. The ELAC was warmer with fuller bass. I preferred the ELAC.

Quote from vinc3l3 :
I had this grinder for less than a month. Great grinder, quiet for a grinder but it doesn't grind fine enough for espresso. It's good for everything else, you really need an expensive grinder for espresso. I replaced it with a sette 270. I think i paid more than this price so it's a good deal.
The biggest complaints I've seen is the coarse isn't coarse enough for French press, let alone cold brew. There's plenty of decent $40-60 burr grinders out there that will make good medium ground coffee, but if you're looking for even coarse or very coarse coffee or very fine coffee, everything in this price range seems to disappoint.

I'm still trying to figure out if the Baratza is worth the upcharge over the Capresso, but I'm pretty sure this would be a bad attempt for people to try to save a buck if they're looking for very fine or very coarse even grinds.

I have no idea who America's test kitchen is, but to say you can get the same quality from a burr and chop is just not true.

Let's take the subjectivity out of it and strictly talk about how coffee is made and how you get the flavor in the bean into a cup.

Coffee is solution. You make it by adding hot water (195f to 205f) to beans. The most popular extraction methods are gravity (pour over/drip), pressure (espresso) and immersion (french press). For each of these brewing methods, the size and uniformity of the grounded coffee particles will factor into how much of the coffee is extracted and and what rate. There are other factors like water temperature, time, etc... But point here is that the size and uniformity absolutely effects the levels of extraction and then in congruity with those other factors what gets extracted. For example, if you are making drip and don't have uniformity, the water will flow through different and the extraction will be completely inconsistent throughout the bed. For espresso this is magnified due to the pressure. French press extraction will be effected, but the most notable difference will be the murkiness of the cup.

You can't control grind size or uniformity with a chop. Period. That's what a burr is good for. And more expensive Burr grinders are more consistent and can grind at more sizes.

Now, how a cup tastes to you is completely subjective. And if you add other things to balance the drink out, it might not be as big a deal. But the grinder absolutely effects the brew and what's in the cup.

Quote from BPD007 :
I bought a Refurbished Baratza years ago. The customer service is one of the best I've ever experienced. I highly recommend getting one of their burr grinders.
If I find the right price, I'm happy to pull the trigger on a Barartza.

There's even more variables than that. I prefer cold brew over french press, AeroPress and drip coffee, but all four get made in my house weekly.

I have multiple types of decaf beans, but I can get a wide range of flavors out of the beans based on the grind and brew options.

I'm about to return my current conical burr grinder because it's just not able to give me the coarseness or consistency I want, especially for cold brew.

For people who just want a hot cup of drip coffee, yeah, the grinder doesn't matter that much. But what people want varies, and even if they agree, as you said, taste is absolutely subjective.

Quote from PossumLodge :
The Delonghi Ariete works quite well and performs at unprecedented levels as compared to what a person could ask and expect out of a coffee maker marked at $100. With some things here and there pulling it down, but overall a good and a decent enough buy if a coffee machine is your want but the budget is a constraint.
Do they even realize that they're talking about a grinder?
