Grinders & Filters

Finding the Right Grinder

Ok, so you have found a coffee with an amazing smell and a good quality bean. Does that mean you’re done? not quite, you see finding the correct bean is only half the battle before you start smashing it with a hammer or trying to cheese grate it down to the perfect filter coffee you may need to find the right tool for the job. We offer a couple of solutions for getting the best brew possible from your beans.

Firstly, this isn’t rocket science, you are just wanting to take the bean from where it is now to where it can be strained and filtered down for your morning cup, correct?

Good, now I can’t help you with the grind amounts or how coarse you need your grind to be, at the end of the day it comes down to the individual and their taste.

Benefits of electric over manual grind

Some people wonder whether or not to use an electric grinder over a manual grinder and what the difference is? I’ve compiled a small list which should give you a better idea of how to choose.



  • Simple & easy to use
  • Convenient and quick
  • Easy to achieve different grind settings


  • Can be expensive
  • Takes up more counter space
  • Need an outlet



  • More compact
  • Good for traveling or on-the-go
  • Reasonably priced


  • More work and time required
  • Harder to adjust settings
  • Difficult to achieve finer grinds

Filters or Coffee Press?

There are two winners when it comes to creating the perfect brewed coffee, it is really only the choice between using a Press or a Slow Drip Filter.

My personal favorite would come down to either an Aero Press system or Slow Dripper.
