When it’s time for that morning (or evening) cup of coffee, it is best to use coffee beans that are fresh right off the grinder.

Coffee drinkers will always tell you that the taste and aroma are best when using freshly ground beans.

TIP: Did you know that keeping your coffee beans (and even pre-ground coffee such as Folgers) in the freezer will protect and preserve freshness and longevity?

When exposed to air, ground coffee will lose flavor and aroma. That’s why it is essential to grind only what you need at the moment.

While the above freezing tip can preserve your ground beans for more extended periods, nothing beats the flavor and aroma of the freshly ground bean.

If you do elect to store the ground coffee make sure;

1.) The container is completely dry with no moisture or condensation.

2.) The container is airtight. A sealable lid is best as covering it with plastic wrap will not make an airtight seal.

3.) Refrigerate or freeze immediately.

There are three top coffee grinders you can use on whole coffee beans.

We will discuss the three types of coffee grinders: the conical burr, the burr grinder, and the electric blade.

The Conical Burr Grinder

The conical burr grinder is the superior choice in preserving the flavor and smell of the coffee. It produces a lovely texture. You can alter the grinding speed from a rapid to a much slower pace.

Heat and ground beans don’t work well together. Heat dissipates the flavor and aroma, so selecting a slower speed is best. This prevents some grinding machines from becoming overheated.

The Conical Burr is also better for a wider variety of coffee makers and espresso machines. Its speed is usually around 500rpm or more minor.

The Burr Grinder

Burr coffee grinders are much faster, ranging from 10-20k rotations per minute.

These types of the coffee grinder are a favorite for home use because they are fast and economical.

In contrast to the Conical Burr grinder, you will not achieve as fine of grinding. They will, however, put out a decent final product for the price.

Blade Grinders

In comparison to the Conical and Burr Grinders, the Blade Grinder is the fastest one available today.

Their speeds typically reach between 25k and 30k RPMs. Because of this speed, Blade Grinders will give you an end product that contains coffee granules that are both small and large.

When grinding coffee in a Blade Grinder, dust will form. This dust can clog some machines (especially presses and espresso makers). Therefore it is best to use Blade Grinders in drip coffee makers.

Your coffee grinder choice is only half of the equation, though. It would help if you considered all of the details regarding the coffee machine you use. Consider the economics (not everyone needs a $500 coffee maker!).

Check out how easy it is to clean and maintain the processor. It’s not fun if you have to spend 10 minutes every morning cleaning the machine.

Also, consider the noise level. If you’re up at 4 AM grinding coffee, you don’t want to wake the whole house!

If you combine a good choice in your coffee grinder selection with some common sense about your coffee processor, you can achieve gourmet results without breaking the bank. You’ll have fresher coffee all the time and save some money in the process.

So stop buying that expensive ground coffee that’s been sitting on a shelf.

Invest in a good coffee grinder and start enjoying that good cup of Joe every morning!

My name is Logan, and Italian Coffee Lover, deeply in love with Espresso and Cappuccino. I can't live without the smell of coffee in the morning :) In short, I love coffee. I started this website to talk about coffee, coffee beans, coffee grinders, and the Italian Coffee Maker. Italian Coffee Makers is a one-stop destination for all things related to the best Italian Coffee Lover, guides, tips and best product reviews that are tested by the team. Each of the espresso machines and coffee makers is rigorously tested to ensure it meets the standards of excellence. It’s only my opinion of course, but I have had some of the best (and worst) coffee from around the world. I can tell you for sure that the Italians take coffee seriously. It is more than a casual drink or quick start for the day…it is part of the national identity. It should be no surprise that the Italian coffee maker produces some of the best coffee you could hope to drink.
