The First Step to Brewing Great Coffee - Tiamo Burr Grinders
Brewing the perfect cup of coffee can be dependent on many things, but one of the most important factors in getting it right starts with the grinding of the beans. Bearing in mind coffee starts to lose its freshness and flavour the moment it interacts with the air around it, the most logical way to preserve that freshness would be to grind your coffee beans just before you brew it. However, the flavour and aroma of the most amazing coffee can be compromised if the beans are poorly ground, and although there are various coffee bean grinders on the market that work in different ways, some of them have advantages over others. The main kinds of grinders used are blade grinders and electric or manual burr grinders.
Blade coffee grinders can sometimes be a bit hit and miss, as coffee pieces often end up inconsistent in size. Also, the heat from the friction that blade grinders generate can alter the taste of the coffee. Beans ground with a burr grinder produce more uniform results, and with less heat. Whilst electric burr grinders have their place, manual burr grinders are excellent devices that allow you to grind just the amount of coffee you need, when you need it. Their smaller size means they won't take up a huge amount of space in the kitchen and they can be transported easily, so are convenient to take away when you travel. Manual burr grinders are inexpensive compared to many electric burr grinders, and since they use no electricity, cost nothing to run.
Coffee-Direct.co.uk would like to introduce two manual burr grinders that will enable you to effectively process your coffee beans, while preserving their flavour and other characteristics, so you can enjoy your coffee at its absolute best.
The Tiamo Black Burr Grinder is sleek and compact, and made with high quality materials, a durable ceramic blade and rubber base. The burrs can be adjusted for the required grind and its capacity is enough for 8 cups or 115g of coffee.
