Coffee grinders test

We test 12 coffee grinders in the CHOICE labs, including models from Breville, DeLonghi, Sunbeam and more.

Last updated: 1st February 2012

Grinding your coffee beans immediately before making coffee is the best way to extract their full flavour and allows you to get the right grind consistency for your particular machine. If you're going to buy an espresso machine we recommend also investing in a coffee grinder. We test 12 burr grinders, priced between $119 and $499, to tell you which:

  • perform the best
  • are the easiest to use
  • are the quietest
  • are the safest.

Want CHOICE's advice on what to look for when you're shopping for a new coffee grinder, or how to get the best out of the one you have? Find our new buying guides and other expert advice here.
