The BISTRO Blade Grinder takes coffee beans from whole to coarse to fine quickly and efficiently for fresh brewing.
AND, it grinds herbs and spices into small bits in few seconds.
Why we absolutely love it: • Compact and functional • Strong, durable stainless steel cutting blade that spins at a precise RPM • Transparent lid allows visibility to achieve desired coarseness • Easy, push-button control allows for pulse action or continuous grind • Convenient cord storage in base
BUT WHY USE WHOLE BEANS when you can buy them already ground?
The most important reason is freshness because once a bean has been ground, coffee will go stale very fast! The beautiful flavour in the bean oils will evaporate once the beans are ground up, which means they need to be locked in their protective shell until coffee time, otherwise it loses about 60% of its aroma!
And let's remember that coffee oils are very delicate, which makes them an easy victim of contamination. In other words, odours that are floating around ground coffee will taint it and nobody want a hint of sautéed onion in their butter coffee!
