To choose the proper grinder for your establishment it is important to consider the following factors. How much coffee are you making or grinding up in a day, does your business sell packaged coffee in bulk? If your business sells coffee by the pound as well as brewed by the cup, you will need a grinder that can handle that kind of usage. Do you serve espresso or just brewed coffee? Espresso is an entirely different animal as they say.
When you grind espresso it is recommended to choose a burr grinder over a blade grinder, this is because espresso is incredibly mutable by heat, blade grinders tend to heat your coffee beans in the process of grinding them and that will cause your coffee to release a large amount of aromatic compounds that should have made it into the cup. Burr grinders are also better for espresso in another way; they are able to grind beans to a much more uniform particle size, this makes it easier for you to tamp it to perfection and produce that solid puck that tells you you’ve done your job as a barista.
