Ever since Wilfa introduced us to the Wilfa Svart Electric Coffee Grinder, we have been huge fans of their products. Needless to say, when we heard that Wilfa was releasing a flat burred electric coffee grinder that would grind for both espresso and filter coffee, we couldn't wait to get our hands on it and try it out for ourselves.
First things first though, what are flat burrs and why do we care? Flat burrs refer to the shape of the grinding disc and as a general rule, flat burrs are favoured in the world of speciality coffee due to their ability to produce more clarity and brighter tasting coffee. This is opposed to conical burrs which are favoured for their ability to produce fuller-bodied and more textured coffee. Needless to say, most specialty coffee lovers are after clarity and brightness.
This grinder was designed in collaboration with Tim Wendelboe, one of the most educated and progressive coffee professionals in Europe. Wilfa consulted with Tim to find out exactly what it was that passionate, coffee-loving home brew aficionados wanted from a coffee grinder. Instead of doing what most companies were doing, and shrinking the design of a commercial grinder to suit the home, Wilfa went back to the drawing board and designed this grinder to be perfectly specced and suited to home brewing.
So, what do you get with the perfect home grinder? The Wilfa Uniform has a very impressive 58mm burr set that achieves excellent grind consistency and bright, clean brews. 41 grind settings will give you great results across the board from French press to espresso. It is specifically designed with a slower motor than you might find in commercial grinders so as to keep the temperature in the brewing chamber stable and ensure that you get the best possible tasting cup (if the coffee gets too hot while grinding, this can result in astringent and unpleasant flavours in your cup).
With all these features, you might be asking yourself "what did Tim Wendelboe say when he got to finally try the grinder out... he said exactly this - ‘The Svart Uniform coffee grinder has unique, wide and flat burrs made from high-quality steel that grind the beans slowly and precisely, getting a high quality and uniform end result. You’ll get tasty, aromatic and full-bodied coffee.’
If you love coffee and are a stickler for quality coffee, then the Wilfa Uniform is the grinder to help you get the best quality brews out of the coffee you buy. Get yours from Soma Coffee Company Today.
