There’s nothing like the aroma of a hot cup of coffee or delicious espresso drink made from the freshest coffee beans. Grind your own coffee beans and experience a flavor revolution at home. There’s a reason coffee shops grind the beans right before preparing your beverage; it just tastes better. Whole coffee beans have volatile compounds that are released when ground, and the longer ground coffee is exposed to the air, the more it loses those compounds and aromas. Grinding the beans right before brewing will keep your coffee’s rich, full-bodied flavor intact. The Melitta Coffee Grinder offers hands-free operation. Add the beans and press the button for true one-touch grinding. Depending on your preference, set the grind fineness to coarse, medium, or fine. Serving a crowd? Grind enough beans to make up to 14 cups of coffee at once.
Simply pour in your coffee beans and place the cover on the grinder. Adjust the grind and number of cups, press the button, and in a few seconds fresh, aromatic ground coffee will be ready to go. Pour the ground coffee right from the removable grinding chamber into your coffeemaker or espresso machine filter.
You don’t have to pre-measure the beans to get the right amount of coffee. Easy-to-read measurement marks inside the grinding chamber let you add the correct amount. Grinding time is customized as well. Whether you need enough coffee for a couple shots of espresso in the morning or a full pot for a Sunday brunch, simply adjust the cup setting and the grinder takes care of it. When grinding is complete, it shuts off automatically.
Cleaning out the grinder is easy. The included coffee brush conveniently stores on the back of the grinder and lets you clean around the blade. Both the grinding chamber and cover remove with a simple twist and can be submerged in water for cleaning. Cord storage is hidden under the grinder to keep things tidy when not in use.
For best flavor, store coffee beans in an airtight container. Grind beans immediately before brewing. Grinding times will vary by amount and fineness setting. To ensure optimal grinding performance, allow coffee grinder to cool for at least one minute between uses. Coffee flavor and strength is a personal preference. Vary the type of coffee beans, amount of coffee, and fineness of grind to find the flavor you prefer.
