As coffee is gradually integrated into people's daily life, more and more friends begin to choose to make their own coffee. And the most important thing to make coffee is to buy utensils! The quality of an utensil can directly affect the final taste of coffee, among which the biggest influence is the "bean grinder".

Like other coffee utensils, bean grinders have many styles on various shopping platforms. But compared with other instruments, the choice of bean grinder needs to be more careful! First, as we said before, it will affect the quality of grinding; second, because it.. It's more expensive. On the shopping platform, we can see that the price gap of the bean grinder is very outrageous! The cheapest one can be bought for only about 20 yuan, while the most expensive one costs tens of thousands of yuan. The price difference of thousands of times has frozen these friends who are going to buy a bean grinder. With such a big gap, how to buy a bean grinder? Therefore, in order to reduce the "burden" of friends, this article in Qianjie wants to share the purchasing ideas of bean grinders. I hope to help friends buy ideal bean grinders!

Should the bean grinder choose hand mill or electric mill? Hand grinding and electric grinding have always been a difficult problem in the selection of bean grinders, because they each have their own advantages. For example, the advantage of electric mill is that it can grind coffee beans more finely. The grinding fineness of manual and electric grinding is mainly different from that of the cutter head used. Almost all the cutters used in the electric mill are ghost knives and flat knives, and most of them are flat knives! The structure of the flat cutter head is that the upper and lower cutters are placed in parallel, one is fixed, and the other is connected to the motor, which will run with the start of the motor.

When the coffee beans are ground, they will be discharged from the cracks on both sides because of the centrifugal force caused by the rotation of the knife head. Due to the rotation driven by the motor, there is almost no error caused by man-made influence, so the ground coffee particles will be more uniform and less fine powder. Almost all the cutters used in the hand bean grinder are conical cutters. The conical cutter head is composed of a circular static cutter head and a conical cutter head!

From the picture, we can see that the gap through which the coffee bean can pass is a wide to narrow caliber, which shows that the coffee bean will be ground for a considerable number of times, combined with the uneven grinding rotation of manpower, so that the coffee particles will not be very uniform. Easy to produce fine powder! In terms of fineness, the electric mill will have a very high advantage. But you know, hand shaking also has quite eye-catching advantages: affordable, portable, no electricity. This is very friendly to friends who don't stay at home often and can take them wherever they want. So, how to choose hand mill and electric mill? Qianjie advice is: choose according to wallet and needs! If the budget is less than 1000 yuan, or friends who need to travel frequently and need coffee to get to and from work. Then the choice of hand mill will have more advantages than electric mill! In the front street of the hand mill, it is recommended to buy machines with a price of more than 200 yuan, because although there are indeed bean grinders with prices below 200 yuan, many of them are "bean choppers" in the name of bean grinders, and the beans ground are very uneven. The risk of mine exposure is too great! So let's be a little more safe and buy the hand mill we like within 200-1000 yuan.

If the budget is higher (there is no upper limit), there is more room for placement, and friends who want to be in place in one step, then Qianjie will be more recommended to choose electric mill! The purchase of electric mill also needs to guard against "bean chopping machine", but compared with the hand mill, the chance of stepping on it is much smaller. The only thing to note is whether it is an Italian bean grinder or a single bean grinder!

There is a great difference between Italian mill and single mill in appearance and grinding range, which can not be used (except for individual ones with extremely high prices)! Therefore, when buying, friends must pay attention to the distinction between the two, and then purchase, otherwise the degree of trouble of returning and exchanging goods is still relatively big.
