  • Electric Grinder for manual brewing methods

    Gday all. Ive tried doing a bit of a search but am failing to find enough information.

    Im looking into buying a second grinder for other brewing methods (aeropress/cold drip/syphon/pourover/fp). Im after something relatively inexpensive which will produce a consistent coarse grind without too many fines (like my porlex does). Some options I have been considering are the Breville Smart/Baratza Encore/Baratza Virtuoso.

    Does anyone have any other opinions/ideas?

    hey timmy

    i currently run a the bcg800 for cold drip and have a porlex for comparison

    i do believe the bcg800 does the job fine. sure is a whole lot faster than grinding 80-100g on the porlex at a go lol

        i take it you never tried grinding coarse when you had yours? haha

        its decent. it will do the job fine

        will it do the job great? i dont think so but lets face it, were looking at hardware limitations

        i know for a fact that it will give any other grinder within its same price range a run for its money. if you want ill take a pic of the grinds when i next grind a batch up for cold drip

          Na I didnt haha, it was set for espresso and didnt want to fiddle with it. Been pretty much using my porlex exclusively for manual stuff, but Im not entirely impressed with its consistency (although for a small travel grinder, its great!).

          Yes please I would like to see a pic if you could

            I recently purchased a small Bodum Bistro Grinder for my daughter so she could grind for a plunger. Got it for $135 at one of the major department store style retailers. Its advertised a lot on the web, but due to end of year sales I got it even cheaper. Its a small conical and I doubt it would be any good for good espresso style, or as good as a Baratza etc. A good feature is its borosilicate glass container which prevent static and which has a silicone top that seals well, so no mess.

            Anyway so far seems pretty good for its intended usage, and means I dont have to grind for her.
