The Mr. Coffee burr grinder is the lowest priced burr on the market. I have received many requests for a review of this product over the past year and today is that day.
Mr. Coffee Burr Grinder
The (mister coffee) Mr. Coffee burr grinder is very easy to set up and use. It is a step burr grinder which goes from very fine to ultra coarse. The only question that really matters is does it grind at these levels evenly and consistently? The answer is yes and no.
Yes the Grind is Even
The grind is somewhat even because most of the grinds which land in the chamber are ground to the consistency specified.
No the Grind is not Consistent
The grind is inconsistent because it gathers very fine powder at the top of the chamber into which the grinds fall.
Should I buy this grinder?
The answer to this question is determined by 1 thing:
1) How much money is the budget for a burr grinder?
If you only have $40 or less to spend on a grinder then this might be an option for you. If you are prepared to scoop out the fine grounds that cling to the side of the chamber then this could work to accomplish a more even grind than a blade grinder. Though, I would recommend waiting until you have the extra $60 to invest in a grinder that will increase the awesomeness of your coffee ten fold.
