Every coffee connoisseur needs a good grinder and Bodum produces some of the best. Purchasing your coffee whole bean and grinding it at just before brewing is the best way to ensure freshness and give yourself a fair shot at “the perfect cup”. This powerful, handy grinder has a transparent lid so the grounds can be observed for fineness. The longer you grind your coffee the finer it gets. This may take a bit of practice, but following the manufacturers recommendations will shorten the learning curve.
