The aroma of fresh coffee in the morning is a welcome greeting. That vital pick-me-up can be further enhanced with a simple device – a coffee grinder. With the simple press of a button, a serving of fresh, roasted coffee beans is ground to a fine powder, ready for brewing. The difference of taste and aroma can be extreme, delightfully awakening your senses to this new flavorful coffee experience.
Many coffee grinders also serve as a spice mill, rendering whole spices, grains, nuts and seeds to coarse particles and fine powders, depending upon your preference. For maximum freshness, flavor, and culinary perfection, the spice mill is an essential tool for any active kitchen.
Coffee grinders and spice mills are an inexpensive accessory for your kitchen, and many brands and styles can be found in nearly any home goods store, as well as a vast amount of internet shopping sites. Most coffee grinder/spice mills can be purchased for under $30.00.
The Krups GX4100 Electric Coffee, Herb, and Spice MIll is a one-stop solution for all your grinding purposes. Made of stylish stainless steel with black accents, the compact design fits easily on any shelf or kitchen counter without taking up valuable space.
