This smartly designed, finely tunable burr coffee grinder from Krups is built on the premise that good coffee starts with the freshest, most appropriate grind. Equipped with an expert-quality burr milling system, the machine turns out very consistent grounds with minimal heat for the best-tasting coffee. Its coarseness dial offers 17 distinct settings to create precisely the right grind for the occasion, brewing method, and kind of bean. In addition, the quantity dial, ranging from 2 to 12 cups, lets you grind no more coffee than you need, which helps preserve fresh aroma and flavor.
Structurally handsome and easy to use, the grinder features a large transparent bean hopper with a clearly marked "max" line. The grounds container, also transparent, is lidded and removable for tidy transport to the espresso machine or French press. Simple maintenance is also a boon here--the burr removes for easy cleanup and Krups includes a cleaning brush for the hopper. Shiny and matte black with silver accents, the grinder looks dashing on the countertop without drawing excess attention to itself. It stands 10-1/2 by 4-3/4 by 5-3/4 inches and carries a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard
