Macap M4 Stepless

+ $574

Its worm gear-driven stepless adjustment makes it one of the best stepless adjustable grinders on the market today. The worm gear makes it simple to make even a minute adjustment, and the best part is that you can do it with either hand.

Mazzer Mini Doserless

+ $925

The Mazzer Mini Electronic Doserless grinder is one of our favorite espresso grinders for its accurate grind, intuitive electronic dosing controls, and control of static (the grinds just drop right into your portafilter without spreading over your countertop!).

Vario

+ $434

Here's the short answer on why this grinder is worth $434: It has the serious quality of a professional level espresso grinder, with precision adjustment to achieve the perfect espresso shot, yet it can switch to your favorite French press or coffee maker setting without losing your micro espresso setting.

Baratza Preciso

+ $270

Based on the popular Virtuoso, the Preciso adds extra precision and control. It retains the 40 grind adjustment steps, but a second micro adjustment lever further divides each of the 40 steps into 11 distinct settings. Smaller steps means more control over your espresso grind, enabling you to pull that perfect shot.

    Since the Alexia is so solidly built, you need to give it at least 20 minutes of warm up time before making drinks.

  • Single boiler

    With a single boiler, you can't steam and brew in unison, but with a little technique, you'll get great results.

  • Vibratory pump

    Some people find vibratory pumps to be quite noisy.
