As any experienced coffee drinkers knows, all the best tasting brews are made using freshly ground beans. Nothing beats the full aroma, plus you also get more control over the grinding process with your own machine.

There are two main types of coffee grinder: blade and burr. Most affordable machines tend to be of the blade type, which work by chopping the beans up with a rotating blade.

Burr machines are generally considered to be better than blades, certainly in terms of quietness and quality of the grind, but they are often more expensive.  The best burr grinders are generally considered to be the ones with concial mills, but wheel types are more common and usually less expensive.

My personal favorite, regarding the best cheap grinder, is the KRUPS 203-42 Electric a user friendly and attractively designed unit, which does does all the basics of grinding.

If you are happy to spend more money, however, I would recommend the Capresso 560.01 Infinity – as a burr grinder, this machine provides a quieter and more precise experience.

#1 Best Coffee Grinder Under 100 Dollars! – Affordable, Attractive and Efficient!

Compact, attractive, and efficient, the KRUPS F203 is my personal favorite machine at the affordable end of the price scale (I have one in my office that I use on a daily basis!).

Easy to use and able to grind coffee, spices, and nuts quickly and evenly, the stainless steel blades are also very durable (I have one that I’ve used on a daily basis for over three years and it still works as well today as it did on the day that I bought it). The Krups can grind up to 3 ounces of beans at a time.

The machine is straightforward to clean, I use a combination of damp cloth and brush. it takes up hardly any counter space, which is handy if you only have a small kitchen.

Perhaps its only weakness is that like all electric blade machines, it can be a little noisy. That’s not a problem during the day time, but can be inconvenient in the early morning or late at night when others are in bed. I find that wrapping a towel over it dulls the sound.

The Krups is available in black, brushed silver, and stainless steel.

How to Choose a Good Coffee Grinder

Selecting the right coffee grinder for your needs can seem like an overwhelming task, given the large array of machines currently out there on the market. Some of the factors that you may want to consider when choosing your new machine are listed below.

  • Do you want an electric or a manual grinder. Electric machines are quicker and easier, but also noisier, plus they do, of course, require a power supply.
  • Do you want a blade or a burr machine. Burrs have several advantages, including being quieter and more accurate, but are generally more expensive.
  • Consider what suits your kitchen best. If your kitchen area is small, then you probably want a more compact machine. Some machines also come in a variety of colors, so you can choose one that suits your decor.
  • Is the machine easy to use and clean?
  • How versatile is the machine? Can I grind the beans to different sizes, according to my requirements? Will the machine work with spices and nuts, as well as just coffee?
