Choosing the right Coffee Grinder for your café/ business.

Carlin Gibbs

When it comes to searching for Coffee Grinders for your business it can be a complicated task. There are a range of questions to ask before beginning your research of the coffee grinder you need such as: what grinder do I need to suit my business and will it accommodate future growth so I do not have to buy a new one down the track? Is your business coffee focused? Or is it to cater to a select clientele and compliment your other options? What are you currently using? What are servicing costs like? Are parts available if needed?

Factors to Consider:

The first thing to consider is how many kilos are you doing a day or week. Are you doing 1-2 kilos, 5-10, 20-30 or 30+ a week. It’s a question that needs to be answered before researching what options you have as if you are doing 30+ kilos a week investing in a 1-2 kilo a day Coffee Grinder because of price won’t be suitable to compliment your high demand of coffee. Secondly would be don’t focus on price, just because it seems cheaper than another brand or model doesn’t mean the parts and service is readily available or even get the job done. Thirdly the ease of use, will all staff be able to easily use the grinder or will it be something they may struggle to get used to?

These factors are important when considering and researching, whilst there are many grinder brands out there available being able to even see one working or use one in a showroom will help you in deciding what you need. Here at Boema we have a range of Eureka Coffee Grinders available to try in our showroom, from the Mignon which is for a 500g- 1 kilo a day suitable for a home use or office grinder, the Eureka 60E (available in lever and on demand suitable for1-2 kilos a day to the Eureka Mythos (with Titanium blades and Built in Tamper) which is suitable for 20+ kilos a day.

Allowing Room for Growth:

When looking at coffee grinders always consider your room for growth; for instance, you may be doing 3 kilos a day but can you grow it to 6 or even 10 kilos which will see your return on investment on your coffee grinder return faster so don’t be afraid to look to the future as this will save having to purchase another grinder later. The speed, quality and consistency of coffee is everything when making coffee for customers and with the right grinder you can increase your business due to being able to perform when it matters in your peak periods. Always be sure to study the grinder you will be buying as simple things like grinder and dose adjustments are necessary throughout service; the grind always changes as it is a variable.

As a whole don’t be afraid to look at your options, try a few grinders to see what one you like and will suit your business. Understand the product you are buying, don’t be afraid to invest for future growth and don’t always focus on the price.
