Coffee Grinders

Okay, we know these aren't coffee machines but...

We have to mention them.

If you really want to get serious about your coffee, a coffee grinder is one of the most important parts of kit you should own.

Choose your own coffee grind each time you make a cup of coffee. The consistency of your grind will effect the flavour and body of your coffee.

Coffee beans begin losing their freshness as soon as they're ground. Grinding your own ensures you retain as much flavour and crispness as possible.
