Is it any good?


It's probably ok. It's not a true burr grinder like a Wilfa, Baratza or Sage / breville, but it's not in the same price bracket. Probably similar to the krups / delonghi.

What's the difference between a "true burr" and this? Thank you.

A false burr grinder (I'm sorry this sounds derogatory - it's not a term i made up) uses burrs that are castellated to grind the coffee. They are better than blades that literally smash the beans, but the grind isn't wholly uniform.

This is important if you're seeking to get a consistent cup of coffee. The grinds will have more 'fines' than you'd expect, which gives uneven extraction rates. Depending on method of brew, you might get more silt, but again, nothing dissimilar or worse than a bladed grinder.

A proper burr grinder gives more uniformity in grind size. The result will be a cleaner cup depending on brew method and a more consistent cup.

It depends on how passionate you are about getting a good and repeatable cup as to whether you see this better value than a burr grinder. I think you can get a bodum for £80 as the cheapest proper burr.

This would still be quicker than a bladed grinder though!
I would recommend spending an extra £5 and buy the Delonghi KG79 on ebay. You can easily mod the top burr so it sticks out a bit more for a much finer grind. I've been using it for a couple of weeks for espresso on my Sage Bambino using a single walled basket. After the mod I had to dial it back 3 clicks or the grinds would be too fine. The fine grinds are very uniform but not tried coarse grinds so can't comment on the uniformity
Looks like a good price for this item. For Costco members it is also currently one of their Hot Buys at 34.99 but obviously you need to be a member to buy from them, so this is a good deal for those who are not.

Which? gave this Melitta model a rating of 66% (assuming a price point of 55 quid) on its list of Best Coffee grinders recently. Compared with a 'Best Buy' rating of 74% for the DeLonghi KG79 model (rated assuming a price of 45 quid), mentioned above. Different reviewers tend to prefer one model over the other but both seem like good value, if you don;t want to spend a lot more on a very high end model.

Excellent research I am undecided between the 2 tbh
