Well it really depends on what you want to do. Are you hoping for a really even grind and a fine coffee for your expresso then check out a high quality burr grinder. If you mainly do drip coffee through a coffee maker then a burr grinder of blade grinder should work fine. Blade grinders tend to not give as even of results. However, they do have their place if you like to mix in natural flavors such as hazelnut, cinnamon, vanilla bean, fresh mint leaves, and more. If you do use natural ingredients just make sure to treat your blade grinder with care, don’t over work it and make sure to clean it. By the way don’t try to run natural ingredients through a burr grinder that is a quick way to plug, gum it up.
