Domestic coffee grinders are one of two designs.They are either a spinning blade (propeller shape), like an upside down lawnmower, or a tapered male and female burr design.A blade grinder will simply smash the beans up, rather than cut them, and as a result the grinds will vary greatly in size.While you can get away with a blade grinder for making filter coffee, it will simply not suffice for espresso. Yes, burr grinders cost substantially more, but they require an electric motor that is a lot more powerful, and all the load bearing components need to be a lot stronger than just a propeller flying about.
I am here to realise your bespoke coffee vision.
Londinium Espresso provides a bespoke service that doesn't stop with fine coffee. We will be creating a library in the FAQ section of our website to help our clients get the best from their equipment.
In addition to our standard roasts we will be stocking a small selection of rare coffees from around the world.
We have the high-minded ambition of raising our client's appreciation of coffee, in the same way that wine is appreciated today.
Much has been written on the supposed evil of caffeine. We are a lot more concerned by the number of calories that people are adding to their coffee for two reasons. Firstly, the health problems that excessive calories present, and secondly it masks the real taste of the coffee. This allows the market to be dominated by low grade, low cost coffees. The more demand that we can create for unique, low volume coffees, the better the prospects for the growers.
Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to reading your comments.
