Review of the best according to the editors. About the selection criteria. The the material is subjective, is not advertising and is not serves as a guide to the purchase. Before purchase is needed consultation with a specialist.

It’s not necessary to be a real foodie to understand – coffee from freshly ground grains are much more aromatic and tastier than from more old grinding. And no hermetic packaging or containers save from a significant loss of aroma – the most valuable that in general there is coffee. This review we devote to coffee grinders, which optimally suited for use at home. Specialists prepared a list of decent models and grouped: by the principle of grinding – rotary and millstones; millstones by price accessibility – the most inexpensive; millstones at the best combination of price and quality. As a “bonus” we also considered a couple of models manual coffee grinders.

Which company coffee grinder to choose

First, let’s deal with trademarks and manufacturers coffee grinders that appear in our review, and explain why they are worth your attention.

  1. High-profile brands like Bosch and De’Longhi in a special Presentation does not need. Recall only that the first brand – German and the second Italian. Production facilities of both scattered around the world (globalization), but overall quality is always corresponds to the class of manufactured equipment.
  2. Nivona brand owner is a relatively young German company NIVONA Apparate GmbH entered the market in 2005. Her advantage – narrow specialization in the production of coffee machines and related goods. The assembly of equipment is carried out at factories in Switzerland, Portugal and China.
  3. Spanish company Cunill with more than half a century of history – even more specialized than Nivona. She produces strictly coffee grinders and accessories. This is an indisputable plus, but this technique mostly close to professional and often very not cheap. Products are manufactured in Spain itself.
  4. The Caso brand was created in 2003 by the German company Braukmann GmbH. All equipment under this name is made in China, but specifications and reviews are mostly positive.
  5. Rommelsbacher is a solid German brand with a deep, almost century-old history. Small appliances, such as coffee grinders, produced in Turkey and China.
  6. The German brand ProfiCook belongs to the well-known holding company Clatronic Group. This is a home appliance for mass consumer, not differing for the most part in premium quality. But it is inexpensive and worth the money. Produced in China.
  7. Silampos – Portuguese manufacturer of stainless cookware become. Entered the market in 1951 as a family business. Now Silampos products have true fans around the world and refers to the premium, closer to the elite. Prices are appropriate. Manual grinders are produced at the Silampos factory in Portugal.

Now we are moving from “foreign countries” to Russian brands.

  1. VITEK – well-known and even familiar with our the buyer is a trademark owned by the Russian company Golder Electronics Refers to the middle and lower price segment. One of the best-selling household appliance brands in Russia – according to Gallup Media, products of this brand are in every third Russian family. Manufactured in China on a contract basis from OEM / ODM companies.
  2. Mikma is a trademark of small household appliances factory Mikromashina (Moscow). One of the oldest Russian industrial enterprises. Positioned as a domestic manufacturer, but there is a share of guile – the engines in the Mikma coffee grinders are Chinese. It is possible that other details, too, since “Made in China” is clearly written only on the engine.
  3. ViTESSE is a completely Russian brand, for a long time hard disguised as French, until this circumstance became interested in the Federal Antimonopoly Service. Now direct allegations of the French origin of ViTESSE technology on there is no official site, but “tricks” with attributes and positioning remained. By itself, the technique of this brand is quite good, affordable, and fully consistent with standards and requirements of Rospotrebnadzor.

Perhaps the most noticeable shortcoming is a critical shortage. spare parts, which makes this model almost unrepairable.

There is one serious flaw in this model. Users almost unanimous that even on minimal installation fineness of grinding is insufficient for making coffee in coffee machines. This is not a final “sentence”, as this model lends itself to simple tuning, and instructions on the subject on the Internet enough. But the fact that a new coffee machine has to be disassembled and to modify manually, many buyers are upset.

The second problem is only potential in nature.
