The difference between blade vs burr coffee grinders
At De’Longhi, we offer a few options of home barista grinders. To make an informed purchase, here are some differences between burr vs blade coffee grinders that’s good to know:
- Using the correct coffee grinder can influence the outcome of your coffee. Burr grinders use moving grinding wheels that crush the beans between them, while blade models use a metal blade that chops the beans.
- Blade grinders are more affordable due to their simpler construction, making them an excellent option for basic use. For barista-quality consistency of each grind, the burr grinder would be ideal.
- The two types of burr grinders are electric conical burr grinders and wheel or flat burrs; conical burrs use cone-shaped rings with one inside another while flat ones use discs with burrs between. Both deliver high-quality, consistent grinds, although the conical machine will deliver the best results due to its design.
To summarise the coffee grinder burr vis-a-vis blade debate, if you’re after a convenient, budget-friendly coffee bean grinder machine or you are a coffee beginner, opt for the economical blade coffee grinder. For something more sophisticated, our burr coffee grinder is sure to impress.
For a premium-quality home barista grinder that delivers consistent grinds every time, go for the electric conical burr grinder. The Dedica Conical Burr Grinder built-in stainless steel can grind fresh beans from fine to coarse to get the right powder suitable for any coffee beverage, thus ensuring accurate and consistent grind without compromising in flavour.
