There are not many home grinders out there that can compete with the Sage Smart Grinder (TM). Without boring you too much with my opinions about everything coffee and grinders, I have briefly listed why this is a good grinder.
- Most grinders are good for filter or espresso.
- For under £200 at retail, it is a very good value grinder.
- Two-year warranty on a sub £200 home grinder is also generous.
- It is a little slow and noisy compared with spending upwards of £1000+VAT on a commercial grinder. Less money on grinders and burrs usually equates to lesser coffee output.
On a personal level, I use an old Mahlkonig Vario weight grinder at home; it is as much an act of recycling than it is anything else. We have various sage grinders in the roastery which we use for all sorts of things, including colour charting.
