Nothing is better than a good cup of coffee in the morning to wake you up. If you are like me then you’d prefer to make the coffee yourself. I like to know what I am putting in my drink and that means I like to grind my own coffee beans. In this article we will look at the best Coffee grinder machines in Australia. We will also educate you on what you should look for when picking a Coffee grinder machine for oneself.
How to pick the perfect Coffee grinder machine
In this section we will look at the factors that separate a regular coffee grinder machine from the best out there. These features are what you need to familiarise yourself with when making your choice. The more features a certain coffee grinder machine has the better it is. Without further ado let’s get into it.
The burrs are what crush and powder down the coffee beans. Different types of models have different types of burrs. You could say that the quality of the burrs factors the most when picking coffee grinder machines.
There are different types of burrs, the most commonly available one’s are made out of ceramic, steel and plastic. We do not include models that have plastic burrs because of their low grade. Steel burrs on the other hand work really well and are easy to clean with a simple brush. Ceramic burrs are more expensive than steel burrs but they last longer.
There are different shapes of burrs too. The two most commonly available ones are the conical shaped burrs and the flat shaped burrs. We recommend the conical shaped burr for the best results as it gives the most even grind.
We will not overload you with information but grind settings allow you to selectively grind your coffee. Having grind settings allows you to easily do this.
For example brews like espresso can be made using both fine ground coffee and coarsely ground coffee. But what if you need something in between other than the two extremes. Having grind settings on your coffee grinder machine allows you to do just that. Coffee grinder machines such as the breville coffee grinder allows you to pick everything from the volume to fineness.
You would most likely not use up all the coffee beans you grind on a single cup of coffee. The presence and capacity of a storage unit decides how much and for how long you can store your freshly ground coffee.
Freshly grounded coffee loses its quality very fast. Therefore we recommend you to grind just about what you need for a dose of coffee.
Put in the beans and let the coffee grinder machine do all the work. Grinders such as the breville coffee grinder have an intelligent auto-grind feature.
Ease to clean
Coffee grinder machines like all other appliances can catch mould. Therefore it should be cleaned thoroughly when necessary. There is no point in grinding world class coffee beans if you are getting a free dose of fungus with every sip. A good coffee grinder machine should be easy to maintain and clean.

Breville : The Coffee & Spice Grinder
An appliance that is loved by so many across Australia. Keeping the model’s popularity aside, The Breville: Coffee and Spice Grinder has few key features that cements its position on our list.
It is a simplistic coffee grinder. Maybe you don’t care about having 50 different types of grinds. Maybe all you want is a good cup of coffee in the morning made out of freshly ground beans. If that is so then this is perfect for you.
This coffee grinder machine does not use burrs, instead it has blades to do the job. Well, we believe it is because of its multipurpose nature. This model acts as both a coffee and spice grinder. Therefore, having blades is a necessity. The blades are made out of stainless steel and they are pretty durable.
The grinder only has one speed; therefore, the coarseness of the grind depends on for how long you hold it down. The longer the grind the finer the result. Thanks to its removable stainless steel bowl there is minimal difficulty when cleaning.
But we have to warn you, this is a small grinder, therefore give it a break when doing the job. Do not hold it down for minutes at end, instead do it in bursts to prevent the device from overheating.
4.0 out of 5.0 stars
For our rating we give this a 4 out 5. We had to cut off a point because there were instances where we had difficulty removing leftovers from our previous grind.

Bodum Coffee Grinder Electric Coffee Grinder
Maybe you want a coffee grinder with the conical burrs that everyone talks about but you do not want to spend a fortune on it. Then the Bodum Coffee Grinder Electric Coffee Grinder is your best bet. It will allow you to enjoy a fresh cup of coffee every day without going broke on the grinder.
Even though it comes at a fraction of the price when compared to other conical burr coffee grinders its features are not limited in any sense. The Bodum Coffee Grinder Electric Coffee Grinder has different grind settings that allow you to pick your preferred grind. From fine grinds that bring out the taste in an espresso to a coarser grind that is best suited for a cup of french press.
You can start a grind session with the press of a button. The coffee grinder also comes with a timer that allows you to do longer grinds for larger quantities. Although we do not recommend that. Because the fresher the grind better the coffee. We loved its anti-static glass catcher. It prevents your ground from sticking to the container. Therefore, not a single gram of your precious is wasted.
The model is smaller than most and would easily fit into smaller kitchens. It weighs just under 1.5 Kgs meaning you can shift it around or store it away when it’s not needed with ease.
For our rating we give this a 4 out of 5. Everything works great except that the ground is not fine enough to be made into a turkish blend.4.0 out of 5.0 stars
De’Longhi Electric Coffee Grinder
This is a more of a premium coffee grinder for those who like to spend a bit more to gain some extra features and quality. The De’Longhi Electric Coffee Grinder looks futuristic with its shiny stainless steel finish. If you want a coffee grinder that has the looks to match its work, then this could very well turn out to be your favorite.
The De’Longhi Electric Coffee Grinder is pretty standard in size. It has a LCD display to show the user what exactly is going on and the settings/preferences they have chosen for a specific blend. The controls on the grinder do have a comfortable layout therefore you will not have any difficulties in selecting or when playing around with the settings.
The coffee grinder comes programmed with 18 different grind settings. While it is definitely not the highest we have seen, it is not shabby at all. We did feel that the grind settings available for a cup of espresso is not enough. So, if you are a fan of espressos here is something that might concern you.
The machine comes with a 350g hopper for your beans and a 170g container to store your ground. We do not recommend storing your ground though. It completely negates the purpose of a grinder that allows you to have a fresh cup of coffee. Instead, use the special feature which allows you to grind your beans directly into the espresso’s filter handle. You can choose how many cups of ground coffee you want; from a single cup all the way to 14.
Overall, for our rating we give it a 4 out 5. We really wish it had more options when it comes to an espresso grind. The containers are also too big in our opinion; why would you grind so much coffee that it would fill up a 170g tub. Of course, this is good for large households with a lot of members, very situational.4.0 out of 5.0 stars
