For the top spot we’ve chosen the De’Longhi Ariete 3017.

This coffee grinder makes amazing ground coffee, and it’s extraordinarily quiet, making for a more relaxin coffee grinding experience. The bean hopper is removable even when it’s full of beans, and it’s easy to clean, with tight fittings so it doesn’t spill. You also have the option of stopping your grinder whenever you want, so if you messed up and picked the wrong setting, you won’t loose a whole hopper full of beans.

It comes with various adjustable cup sizes, and has 30 different settings for grind fine- or coarseness, giving you a wealth of opportunities to mix it up and get a different experience every time, as well as the luxury of being able to make a perfect cup of coffee for those friends of yours who are really picky with their brew.
