The 7 Best Coffee Grinders For Home Use In 2024

So you’ve got your Equator Coffee beans at home and are looking for the best way to grind them. While we do offer the option to grind your coffee beans directly in our stores upon purchase, perhaps you want to grind the beans as you go so they’re the freshest they can be for when you need them (like a true coffee pro). In that case, you’re going to need a coffee grinder for home use.

Read on for our recommendations of the 7 best coffee grinders.


1. Fellow Ode Brew Grinder

For the most precise grinds designed with optimal noise reduction to not accidentally wake anyone up in your home, the Fellow Ode Brew Grinder’s your best bet. Whether you use an AeroPress, cold brew method, pour over coffee maker, or a French Press, the Ode is meant to accommodate them all with its 64mm professional-grade flat burrs, 31 grind settings, and an auto shut-off feature to boot. Its compact bean hopper design keeps your beans fresh for longer by limiting their exposure to stale-inducing oxygen. 


2. OXO Conical Burr Coffee Grinder with Integrated Scale

If you’re looking for a great beginner-friendly grinder without the complicated bells and whistles typically used by a coffee connoisseur, we recommend the OXO Conical Burr Coffee Grinder. These 40mm stainless steel conical burrs guarantee a uniform grind to extract the most amount of flavor.

There are 3 grinding modes to choose from, each of which is activated by pressing and holding the dial to switch between them: you can grind in Cups mode (up to a dozen brewed cups), by the gram, or using Manual/Portafilter mode if you wish to grind straight into your espresso portafilter or coffee filter. For grinding in Cups mode, turn the dial to the number of cups-worth of grounds you want. Then the integrated scale will weigh your coffee and continue to grind until the specified amount is ground (taking into account how many cups worth of grounds are already in the container). Talk about a smart scale!

Your beans will stay fresh from the sun with the OXO’s tinted bean hopper to ward off damaging UV rays. They will also be protected from overheating thanks to its low speed DC motor.

With 38 fineness settings to select from, you have your pick of grind size for all of your coffee-brewing needs, from the fineness fit for a cold brew to the coarseness necessary for a decent French Press.


3. Hario Skerton Plus Grinder

The Hario Skerton Plus Grinder comes with a Japan-made glass bowl and a ceramic conical burr set that stabilizes the burrs with a cute little plate for a more even grind. It’s perfect for all your travel and at-work coffee needs with its portable build, durable handle, and capability to grind for virtually any brew method.


4. Bodum Bistro Electric Blade Grinder 

For the most budget-friendly option, look no further than our off-white Bodum Bistro Electric Blade Grinder. It saves on counter space with its compact design and base-built cord storage, plus it allows you to monitor the coarseness level in-progress through its transparent lid. To use, simply push the button control for a continuous grind or try out the pulse action as needed. With a strong stainless steel cutting blade spinning at a precise RPM powered by a 150W motor, your beans will be ready for a fresh brew.


5. Porlex II Grinder - Mini and Tall

Boxed Porlex Tall, Mini manual coffee bean grinders and an open grinder.

My personal favorite, the Porlex II Grinder, is available in two sizes: Mini (best for making coffee for one person) and Tall (best for at least a couple or more avid coffee drinkers). Made at Kagoshima Factory in Porlex’s Kirishima City, located on Japan’s Kyushu Island and known for its nearby hot-spring resorts, it has anti-absorption, rust-resistant ceramic burrs contained within a slim and simple stainless steel build. 


6. Maiwen Mini Manual Coffee Grinder - Multicolour

With our black, green, blue, and light blue style options for the characteristic orange-kissed Maiwen Mini Manual Coffee Grinder, you’ll have your pick of an eye-catching stainless steel hand grinder to match your kitchen aesthetic and personal preferences. This is another great portable choice that is easy to clean with its de-constructable build and easy-to-use via its ergonomic wooden ball-topped handle. Access the grind levels to adjust them to your preferences from thick to fine located in the screw-built base at the bottom.  


7. Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill Grinder

The Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill Grinder is the grinder to have for a coffee-drinking household. 

With the capacity to grind enough coffee for 4 to 18 cups, and 18 options for the exact grind size you want from extra-coarse to ultra-fine, your home will always be filled with the wonderful aroma of freshly ground coffee! Furthermore, when the grind cycle is finished, its electric timer will automatically shut off.

From burrs to blades and manual to electric, you’re sure to find the best fit for your coffee-grinding needs out of these 7 best coffee grinders for home use, available in-stores and online at Equator Coffee Roasters.
