Delonghi KG79 Burr Grinder £29.99 at Hughes (Free C+C - maybe able get JL to price match)

Paid £40 for mine last year so seems to have reduced in price. Have been using twice a week for cold brew and it's fantastic and being a burr grinder is much better than your standard spice blade grinder.

I presume you'd be able to get JL to price match as there are Hughes stores around. It's free C+C but delivery on Hughes is a fiver, but only £2.75 on amazon if you're that way inclined.

Grind beans with ease with the De'Longhi KG79 - in a compact, stylish black casing with a grind view finder the De'Longhi KG79 is the perfect kitchen companion for style and functionality.

The De'Longhi KG79 preserves the great taste of your coffee beans by producing a perfect grind every time, using two grinding wheels and operating at a low temperature; this preserves the rich coffee aroma and therefore helps you to achieve a flavoursome blend.

Choose and grind anywhere between 2 to 12 cups of coffee and exercise the ability to be able to choose between fine, medium and coarsely ground coffee with the fineness selector. With the addition of an automatic shut off safety feature the KG79 works to ensure that it turns itself off if either the ground coffee or the bean container is removed.

It doesn't grind fine enough for espresso unless you mod it.

I've had one for a couple of years and it's pretty good for the price (paid about £30 for it from Tesco)

Very good grinder. I’ve still got mine which I modified years ago to grind coffee in to powder (literally chocked my old Gaggia Classic!).

As mozbud says. Even on the finest setting it doesn't grind well enough for an espresso machine. You end up with a weak coffee because of the size of the grind.

I haven't got around to modding mine yet so it sits in the cupboard and I buy ready ground Lavazza, as they seem to be the best i've tried.

If you use a cafetiere or something else which brews slower, this would be fine.

Modify a £30 grinder to recreate the results of a £200 grinder ... smart small step IMO!

Had one of these in my coffee shop to grind for french press and filter and it did a good job. As mentioned, you can mod to do a decent job of espresso too. I had one at home and recently upgraded to a £260 machine, but it's no better at doing the courser grinds. A very decent buy at £40, so at £30 is a bargain IMO.

Same here. Had mine roughly same length of time. It's fantastic once it's been modified. I have my dosage and grind dialled in perfectly so that it gives me one double shot at a time for my espresso basket. An absolute bargain if you want to move to beans and not have to deal with grounds going stale. On demand grind using this machine is such a time and money saver (in terms of having to throw stale coffee away that you didn't quite get round to finishing).

I've had one of these on my watch list for a while, mainly for espresso, is there a link to a mod for this as thinking of taking the plunge.

I've found some links.

top machine for my requirements (vietnamese drip or french press)

Great machine - I use it for Filter and French press. Not tried with espresso as I use a Nespresso for that.

Can you use this to grind other things???

I've had mine for a while and it's great with certain limitations. I drink Aeropress and Moka, so the grind is perfect for that, but the problem is that the smallest quantity is too large, so I can't grind for every cup - unless I throw coffee away. So, I generally grind three days worth and put them in the fridge. The next flaw, is that the hopper is not opaque - which is ridiculous, as light will kill those expensive beans.

I tried the hack and made two small mistakes. I have now bypassed the two safety switches (which prevent grinding when the lid and pull out box aren't in place) but now have turbo mode and very finely ground coffee!
