burr grinders (both conical and flat burr) produce more consistent coffee grounds than blade grinders as others have said. this particular grinder is stepped, which really limits the different applications. probably good for drip coffee and possibly french press, but problematic for espresso extractions.

If one just wants an espresso why wouldn't you just buy a netespresso and bypass the effort into grinding your beans even further and put that $187+ into the machine which you can buy pods for?Chuchunyin wrote: ↑ Grinder is the most important part of coffee making. Consistent, fine grinds = good coffee. Its especially important for espresso
Blade grinders are cheaper, and t hey create inconsistent grinds.
Conical Blade grinders are more expensive, but creates a more consistent and fine grind.
Prior to this Delonghi, I use to have a Cusinart Burr Grinder which was much louder. Conical Burr grinders are expensive due to the precision required to create the grinder burrs.

No not trolling, just needing an education on the purpose of these grinders to save myself money. Which is the primary reason why we are all here, no?sithse7en wrote: ↑ Trolling?
Normally i would say there are no stupid questions but this qualifies. Do you really think an expresso machine is equal to a convenience pod machine?
Nespresso is not expresso despite the misleading name it is a very crappy coffee maker using a mix of instant coffee and beans ground and packaged ages ago. Most pods have less than 10g total of coffee.
I want ~25-30g in my cup and grind size is the most important part of making a good cup. My setup is a $200 grinder a $10 kettle and a $20 moka pot.

That you filled this task.
Congratulations to you dude!
On getting a machine to make my coffee:
I am not a coffee connoisseur, as you are making yourself out to be.
I use a keurig for my coffee drinking and it is over 5 years old. So was looking for a valid reason to get the best quality and not spend so much at the same time.

by full automatic, are you refering to an espresso superauto, or a grind-and-brew style coffee maker?

Which Baratza you are referring to? Encore model is $199 not on sale at Amazon. Too bad only black and white. No stainless steel. Is this model better than this delonghi?SubmarinePerson wrote: ↑ For what it's worth, if you are looking to spend less than 4-500$ on a grinder, please look at the used market. 200$ can get you a decent Baratza, which are also very user friendly for servicing.
If you have a lot of space, definitely consider a commercial model that you can get at a deep discount from all the restaurants (unfortunately) closing down. For example, I have gotten a few Mazzer super jollys for under 200$, which is great if you are willing to put in the work cleaning one up. If it runs you are good, new burrs are around 50-60$.
All that being said, thanks OP for this post. Not a bad price if you do want the peace of mind of buying new and not having dinged, scratched and abused machinery on your countertop.
