But whether it's espresso, slow coffee or a plunger coffee maker, your cup result will be better with freshly ground coffee to appreciate all the aromas and a homogeneous grind (fine or coarse) to avoid residues.
The manual coffee grinder has the advantage of being ecological-friendly and transportable . The price difference between models is often linked to the materials used, the performance and the possible adjustments.
For example, treated steel grinders will cost more than ceramic grinders, a grinder with ABS components will be less expensive. Your choice will therefore be more a question of ease of use and budget depending on the coffee you want to make.
Espresso requires a fine, homogeneous and very precise grind. If you opt for a manual espresso grinder , you should choose a model with numerous notch or micrometric settings, but also a grinder with which you can grind your coffee beans quickly, without getting too tired.
