One of the great secrets to making good coffee at home is to grind it fresh. Coffee maintains its flavor best in whole bean form, making it ideal to grind your beans immediately before preparing your coffee. There are many options to consider when choosing a coffee grinder for your home, including how much counter space it will take up, how much coffee you make, and how long you dedicate to your coffee making. We’ve rounded up some of the best coffee grinders for any situation.
