Design: This is one of the best-looking, best-designed coffee grinders on the market. It’s built with a sleek stainless steel exterior that makes it highly resistant to wear, tear, stains, scratches, and damage.

The base is incredibly solid and helps to reduce the vibration of the machine itself, so there’s less chance of the moving parts being damaged. Yet it also looks elegant and will enhance the décor of your modern kitchen as well as provide quality coffee grounds every time!

Grinding: The coffee machine comes with conical burrs that grind the coffee at low RPMs (450), thereby reducing the friction and heat that degrades the flavor-producing nutrients in the coffee.

The DC motor is designed to keep the coffee beans cool, and it is also a far quieter machine than most of the coffee makers on this list. It produces a consistent grind at both the fine and coarse ends of the spectrum, making it an excellent option for every type of coffee drinker!

Features: The grinder comes with 40 different grind settings, giving you total control over every aspect of your brewing process. The built-in 60-second timer will help you to churn out exactly the same amount of coffee grounds every time.

There’s even a pulse button built into the front so you can quickly churn out one cup’s worth of grounds. The hopper can hold 8 ounces of coffee beans, and the ground bin can hold 5 ounces at a time, so you’ve always got enough coffee ground to make a full pot!

Price: At $230, this is definitely one of the priciest coffee grinders on our list, but well worth the price when you see how customizable, versatile, reliable, and durable it is!
