Are you an espresso aficionado one morning but a lover of French press the next? While keeping your taste buds on their toes (do taste buds have 'toes'?), the ever-changing grinding needs are almost enough to make you want to stick with one prep method...almost! Alas, the OXO On Barista Brain Conical Burr Coffee Grinder is here to make grinding a breeze with a built-in scale, the ability to grind by weight or number of cups of coffee and its range of grind settings.
|How Does it Compare?||
Occupying the same grinder category as Breville's Dose Control Pro, the OXO Barista Brain grinder lacks the ability to grind fine espresso but makes up for it with a built-in scale. Each with their own strengths, the choice will depend on the preparation methods for which it is used.
|Tips and Tricks||
We found the scale to consistently be 1 gram over, likely due to the remaining grinds in the chute falling into the container after the programmed amount was ground. Keep this in mind when using the grinder for methods that require a bit more precision, like pour over.
