The 25 Top-Rated Coffee Grinders for Fresh, Perfect Brew

If you’re a coffee aficionado or you’re just looking to experiment with your morning coffee’s taste, a grinder can become your best friend. A bladed grinder will be more cost efficient and versatile while a burr grinder will provide you more evenly sized grounds. Unlike other electronic devices, you’ll want a slower speed for your grinder to prevent your coffee heating up while it’s being ground. Slower speed also means less static and that lends for a smoother clean up.

Whether you want a blade grinder or a burr, manual or electric, this list has you covered. Below you’ll find the top 25 coffee grinders listed in alphabetical order. The ratings are based on Amazon and are current at the time of this publication.
