Wilfa Svart: grinder for home coffee preparation

Choosing a coffee grinder

TheWilfa Svart electric grinder has become a popular home grinder and deserves its place in the kitchen.

You will be most interested in this grinder when you decide tospeed up and simplify the preparation of your filter coffee.

It is common for people who have embarked on the path of fine coffee to discover the world of coffee gradually, and to be guided by the secrets of home coffee preparation. For technical and economic reasons, especially filtered.

They go to a professional coffee shop for an espresso and at home they try to unravel the mysteries of the opening of the coffee flavour from the bean and its transfer to the cup.

The first coffee grinder

Theirfirst tentative steps lead them to buy a grinder - a good quality but cheap one.

It is the initial uncertainty that puts pressure on the price, so they focus on buying a grinder for a few hundred. In order for the mill to remain of good quality even in this price range, the buyer must accept that it will be without a motor and that he will have to turn the crank manually.

But it's not a big job, some people find joy in this activity and associate grinding with the overall "ritual" of making coffee.

In addition, the undeniable advantage of the hand grinder is its portability and the fact that you can take it with you on a trip or holiday.

Opting for an electric grinder

But then there are those cases when you simply don't want to grind by hand. Whether the reason is that you don't enjoy it, you don't have time to grind by hand or you grind coffee frequently, you decide to get an electric grinder.

You expect certainty, simplicity and speed. You want a grinder that grinds for you so you have time to do other things, that grinds quickly so that you can prepare your coffee when you've barely opened your eyes.

Youalso expect the quality of grind to be at least as good as that of a manual grinder. Last but not least, the price, other features and also maybe how it will lookplay a role, because an electric grinder is not as portable as a manual one.
