Cheap Burr Coffee Grinders Worth Buying

As you surely know not all coffee grinders are worth their weight and not all of them deserve to grind your coffee. The best coffee grinders use burrs to actually grind your coffee beans into usable grounds. The cheap blade grinders simply shred beans apart leaving many irregularly shaped bits including larger grind as well as powder.

Even in the burr grinder category however there are lots of different styles of grinders and many different price points. Not all burr grinders are alike either.

Some burr grinders use steel burrs while others are ceramic. Some burrs are sharp while others are dull. One seemingly great grinder may have burrs that “slip” leaving you with grind that is inconsistent in size.

Other features that make some burr grinders better than others have to do with secondary features like electric automation. Automatic grinders simply cost more than manual versions and those electric grinders that are easy to clean and maintain can be even pricier.

Some of the best grinders have seamless and simplistic settings that make it easy to transition from French press coarse grind to espresso fine.

If you are on a tight budget however you don’t have to spend a fortune. Below I’ve featured some of the best inexpensive burr grinders. These aren’t going to win any awards or be touted as the best of all but they are going to be decent low end burr grinders and will be better for your coffee than the low end blade grinders.

Not sure which grinder si right or you? See this post on manual coffee grinders vs electric or see this post on whether you even need a burr grinder in the first place.
