About this deal

Bigger beans don’t feed through the hopper as well as regular-sized beans, which could result in some loose beans left over.

The clogging occurred despite regular cleanings, and sometimes she found the beans would get stuck in the hopper, too. Depending on how you’re brewing, it makes it very likely that you’ll get a too-fine or too-coarse amount of grounds, and end up with a muddy or flavorless cup. Unlike the Encore, this grinder has a precise, 60-second digital timer that allows you to grind a set amount of beans from the hopper—meaning you don’t have to measure them each time you make coffee.But to make the best espresso, you need to pay more for a machine that’s designed to produce the necessary finer, precise grounds, and to allow for small adjustments at the finer end of your grinding range. There is also a slightly larger size of the C2—the C2 Max—that is an inch taller than the C2 and holds about 5 grams more beans. It’s also easier to clean than the Baratza, as the hopper comes with a shutoff valve so that it can be easily removed with the beans still inside, and the top burr has a little handle that lets you twist out the top half. We know that it still may be a tough sell for those who don’t consider themselves major coffee geeks, but we think spending more is well worth it for most coffee drinkers—whether that worth is measured in more cups made at home, fewer dead grinders sent to the landfill, or just added daily pleasure from making your own delicious coffee.

Steel burrs, some coated with various other metals, are the most common, and are durable and easy to maintain, and they can be cleaned with a stiff wire brush.It might not sound like much, but given that the average serving of coffee is 10 grams, the C2 Max might give you three cups at a time, instead of two and a half. Anecdotally, we’ve noticed that electric grinders that perform the best in our consistency tests are often on the messier side—though we’re not yet sure if that’s a real pattern, or why that would be the case. You might lose some complexity and aromatics with pre-ground coffee, he said, but you won’t get bad, off flavors.
