Grind Your Own Coffee: 5 Manual Coffee Grinders for New Home Baristas

The lockdown has turned many of us into home baristas. Since we cannot go out to buy our usual cup of designer coffee before heading to work, many went ahead and tried learning how to brew our own coffee. Though instant coffee is the quickest way to have our usual day starter, freshly brewed coffee tastes different. And many of us choose to do our personal concoctions from bean to cup.

Sure, you can find many ground coffee at the grocery store and even online that are ready to brew with no effort or waiting. Why not just buy that? Well, it comes down to whether you want just an okay cup of coffee or the best cup of coffee you can brew.

To maximize your drink’s flavor, you need to grind your beans right. The flavor comes from the oils in roasted beans, and those oils need to be released evenly for the best-tasting coffee. It all starts with the right coffee grinder.

Here, we listed down coffee grinders that you can buy from Lazada.
