Many coffee drinkers believe that the best-tasting coffee comes from the method in which it is brewed. While the brewing method definitely contributes to the flavor of the coffee or espresso, this is not where the majority of the full flavor and aroma lies, especially if you are using store-bought ground coffee from a grocery store shelf. Ground coffee bought from a grocery store shelf is stale. Once a coffee bean has been ground, it immediately begins to age, and within 15 minutes, the coffee bean has lost over half of its flavor and aroma.
Coffee beans that are ground and brewed within 15 minutes will produce a full-flavored and aromatic coffee that you could not achieve with store-bought ground coffee. If you want the best-tasting and fully aromatic coffee, you will need to use freshly ground coffee beans.
Coffee grinders come in all different shapes, sizes, and capacities. Coffee grinders can be small, manual grinders for home use or large, industrial grinders for commercial use. No matter what kind of coffee grinder you have, using a coffee grinder to grind freshly roasted coffee beans will give you a flavorful and aromatic coffee that you simply cannot achieve when using ground coffee beans purchased from a grocery store shelf.
The Manual Coffee Mill
Today we’re going to talk about the manual coffee mill and the benefits of adding this tool to your kitchen countertop. Specifically, we are going to feature this wood coffee grinder with an adjustable wooden mill.
You may think you know everything there is to know about manual coffee grinders and you may even think a manual coffee grinder is not for you, but there is more to a manual coffee grinder than meets the eye.
Easy to Use
This manual coffee grinder has a wooden housing and ceramic grinding core. To load the whole coffee beans into the grinder, simply open the lid on the top of the grinder and pour in the amount of coffee beans you need. When filled, close the lid and rotate the handle clockwise to grind the beans. You can create any grind you choose, from extra-fine to coarse, depending on the method in which you will be brewing the coffee beans. To adjust the coarseness of the grind, turn the dial on the top of the grinding wheel to set the grind size.
Once you have finished grinding the beans, the coffee grounds will collect in the container below. To access the coffee grounds, you will pull the handle of the bottom compartment to pull the container out. Add the coffee grounds to the coffee maker of your choice (French press, automatic coffee maker, Turkish coffee pot, etc.) for fresh, flavorful, and aromatic coffee.
The ease of grinding goes hand-in-hand with the consistency of the grind. Because it is so easy to use, the manual grinder also produces a consistent grind each and every time. You never have to guess if the grind is going to be clumpy, too fine, or too coarse. When you set the grinding wheel to the grind size you need, you will achieve that grind every time with no guesswork.
Grind More than Coffee Beans
This manual coffee grinder can be used to grind more than just coffee beans which is what makes it so versatile. Coffee beans, nuts, herbs, and spices can all be ground in this manual grinder. Because you control how fast to grind, you can control how fine to grind the coffee beans, nuts, herbs, and spices.
You may purchase this manual coffee grinder for one reason but find you use it for so much more.
Beautiful and Compact Design
Many people do not want to add another appliance to their kitchen countertop, so they justify why they are not grinding their own coffee beans. This is understandable especially when you consider the bulkiness of a commercial coffee grinder. That’s what makes this manual coffee grinder so perfect. It takes up less than 5 square inches on a countertop and sits less than 8 inches tall. With its wooden design, it looks less like a coffee grinder and more like a conversation piece to add to your kitchen.
Because it’s so small, this manual coffee grinder can easily be packed and taken on a trip if you prefer fresh, flavorful coffee instead of complimentary coffee from the hotel.
Quiet and Affordable
The last and possibly most prominent feature of the manual wood coffee grinder is its quietness and affordability. Manual coffee grinders are substantially more quiet and affordable than automatic coffee grinders. If you want to save money (and save your hearing), you should invest in a manual coffee grinder.
A Quick Look at the Features of the Manual Coffee Grinder
There are some creations in life that yield a bigger and better reward when you put a little extra effort into it, and coffee is one of those creations. While it may seem more convenient to grab a cheap package of already ground coffee from your nearest grocery store, you get what you pay for. In this case, you get a stale cup of coffee.
You can’t miss what you never had, so it may seem hard to understand the full flavor and aroma of the coffee you are missing by using preground coffee from the grocery store, but once you grind freshly roasted coffee beans to brew at home, you will immediately notice the difference.
If you want a coffee grinder that doesn’t break the bank or hurt the ears, yet produces a consistent grind each and every time, this manual wood coffee grinder is exactly what you need. You will be able to tell the difference in the flavor and aroma immediately after the first brew.
