Everyone knows that even if you have the perfect coffee maker, you still need high-quality coffee beans in order to make the perfect cup of morning coffee. However, rarely anyone understands that you’ll get a helluva lot better results and a much fresher coffee if you grind coffee beans on your own. Of course, just before you brew your coffee.
Coffee beans only stay potent for so long. As with many other foods and beverages, they begin to lose taste as you leave them for a while. So, if you want great morning coffee, you’ll need a great coffee grinder. But why not get a stylish coffee grinder?
Fellow Ode Grinder
The Fellow Ode Grinder is beyond gorgeous. It packs a slim, clear black outer, while its design is a perfect combination of functionality and aesthetics. The dial lists allow you to grind from fine to a coarser grind. Its lid in the bean filler allows you to suggest amounts for various styles of brewing. Not to mention that Fellow Ode’s grind catcher magnetically aligned.
Surprisingly, it doesn’t produce much noise and has an automatic turn off option once everything has been grounded. While we could talk about its burr size (64mm flat), or about its smart speed PID motor that exposes every coffee bean to similar force and grinds quality, we believe you get what we’re saying.
All in all, you’ll get a bad boy with this one. All you have to do is relax, and wait for your perfectly-grounded coffee every single morning. Keep in mind that it’s not suitable for Moka pots.
Editor’s note: I’ve never actually used a Fellow Ode and needed to perform research for the above snippet. A big thanks to Home Grounds Coffee for their helpful review of the Fellow Ode, as well as to their founder Alex Mastin who answered several of my questions in an email exchange.
