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.
