    Coffee Kind – Things To Consider When You Buy A Grinder

    February 12, 2014

    Jennifer Chen of Coffee Kind, a site “dedicated to the curation of roasters, equipment, and resources within the specialty coffee industry”, has put together an informative and valuable guide on the topics to evaluate when deciding on which type of grinder is right for you.

    Think about where you are on your coffee journey – are you an early entrant or more experienced? What is your preferred brew method? And of course, what can your budget sustain? All important factors!

    We thank CoffeeKind for the great support of Baratza and you can see from this that we have a grinder for almost every stage of the journey! Please share this with friends or colleagues who are trying to make a grinder choice!
