Grinder for drip coffee

hobbess | Apr 5, 2011 11:08 PM

I'm looking for suggestions for a coffee grinder that will be used only for drip coffee.

I was torn between getting a Capresso Infinity vs. Baratza Maestro because of conflicting reports I've heard about them. But, then I realized I never asked myself the question if I even need to to pay so much for a coffee grinder in the first place.

I've heard so much about the importance of getting a burr grinder for coffee because of the more consistent grind but that discussion is usually in the context of espresso.

But, if I'm only drinking drip coffee, is the grinder still as important? Should I still get a burr grinder, or will the cost of burr grinder be out of proportion to the difference it will make for drip coffee?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
