Burr vs Blade grinder for espresso

JJ boxer | Nov 8, 2003 09:19 AM

Hi. My boyfriend and I just purchased our first espresso machine and are looking for a grinder for the beans. I have seen both blade and burr grinders with a substantial price difference between the two types. What is the difference between the two and which is better for espresso? Also, to what fineness/coarsenessshould we grind to?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
