Blade vs. Burr Grinder

What’s the difference? A blade grinder will produce coarse and uneven grounds, a burr grinder will produce consistent and uniform grounds. We recommend if you’re grinding your own coffee to look for a burr grinder. A coarser grind will produce under extracted coffee, while a finer grind can produce over extracted coffee. Finding the right grind size can help you achieve the best results.
