The world of coffee is full of wonderful and beautifully complex machinery and equipment, however, the more complex and convoluted the equipment, the higher the price tag. Sometimes you just need something that is superbly simple, affordable and that does the job. That's where the Graef home espresso grinder comes in.
One of the biggest barriers for entry in the world of espresso (after the espresso machine of course) is the coffee grinder. You have no doubt heard us wax lyrical about the importance of a coffee grinder, and this importance is drastically compounded when it comes to espresso. The Graef CM702 seeks to bridge that gap by producing a good quality burr grinder that is capable of grinding for espresso at a very competitive price point. It manages to achieve this without skimping on any of the essential features. Although it might not have all the bells and whistles of other grinders, it has all you need with stainless steel conical burrs, easily adjustable grind settings and doserless grinding directly into the portafilter.
Get your Graef CM702 Doserless Espresso Grinder today, pair it with your favourite home espresso machine and complete your home espresso experience.
When it comes to espresso, we cannot stress the importance of freshly ground coffee enough. While it's not ideal, you can get away with pre-ground coffee in a pressurized portafilter and with most manual brew methods, however, when it comes to espresso, an espresso focussed grinder is an essential piece of equipment! When water comes into contact with freshly ground coffee, the coffee releases CO2, and expands, filling every crevice and gap and allowing the full amount of pressure to build before the extraction begins. Without this expansion, you are guaranteed to have channels form and your espresso will be weak and watery and you will miss out on the joys that espresso has to offer.
