Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder Review

You can ask any coffee enthusiast or connoisseur and they will tell you that to develop the full flavor of coffee beans, they should be ground immediately before brewing. The Bistro burr grinder makes coffee making easy with its adjustable features and 14 settings from fine to coarse giving you the perfect grind for each brewing method you choose.
Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder Review


Many coffee grinders have plastic containers to put the ground coffee in, but this is not a good idea. The plastic container increases the chances of static and the powder spills everywhere.

The Bistro takes care of this problem by having a borosilicate glass container instead for grounds catching. This glass container is virtually static-free and reduces the amount of “jumping” coffee grounds.

Product Features:

  1. Includes adjustable features and 14-grind settings from fine to coarse
  2. Comes with a borosilicate glass container to reduce static and “jumping” coffee grounds
  3. You get the correct grind for any brewing method you choose
  4. Includes quick grind button and timed grind feature which makes setting your exact coffee amount and time a cinch
  5. Comes in orange, black, green, red and white

Overall, the Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder is quiet, easy to use, affordable, looks great and all coffee enthusiasts will love it!
