Grinding Action – Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder

Earlier today, I showed you guys the Hario TCA-5 Vacuum Coffee Maker and now it’s the Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder which should also be a nice addition to the kitchen. Since I’m the only coffee drinker in the house, owning a coffee grinder doesn’t make much sense especially when most coffee tastes the same to me. But being exposed to coffee and coffee drinkers at the office all day long has got me a bit more interested. I’m still at that stage where all coffee is created equal but I’m slowly starting to take mental notes about coffee and what it takes to make a nice cup of joe. Things such as how long coffee beans should be roasted for and even the size of the coffee grinds. I never gave these things much thought and how they can have an impact on the taste of the coffee.

The Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder is a manual ceramic burr that will evenly grind your coffee, tea, and spices. You could probably grind certain “herbs” as well. Apparently a burr grinder is better than a blade grinder but it tends to be a bit more pricey. In blade grinders, you can give your coffee beans a burnt taste if you grind for too long due to the heat transfer. See, even you’re learning something about the coffee grinding process.

The Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder comes with a dishwasher-safe glass container and the burr grinder is adjustable so you can grind the coffee as fine as flour or leave it more coarse. The base of the coffee grinder is made of silicone and can be removed. The glass container can hold 100 grams of coffee grounds. The ceramic used “almost” has the same hardness as diamonds so it will last for many years and you also don’t have to worry about it rusting on you.

The Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder can be picked up for $44.95 on Amazon. I don’t know about you guys but I think this should look pretty nice sitting next to that vacuum coffee maker I mentioned earlier.

This grinder also look significantly easier to clean than electric burr grinders in the same price point. And nothing ruins a good cup of coffee faster than rancid coffee grinds.

If you are in the Seattle area Cafe Vita offers a free public brewing school that teaches the difference between brew methods and how the different elements of the brew process affect the flavor and body of the cup. It is also a great free date idea. http://caffevita.blogspot.com/2013/01/public-brewing-school-is-january-26th.html
