Grinders: Bodum Antigua Grinder
Previous Product Grinders Next Product

The Bodum Antigua grinder is a good "starter" grinder using conical burrs. It can grind from a medium espresso grind up to a coarse drip pot grind, and a passable press pot grind. There are two models - normal, and metal.

Bob Lutz (quality: 3.3) 09.07.2001 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: ok if you have a pressurized portafilter and can use a coarser grind. Spend more and get something better.

Bottom Line: BODUM TAKES TOO LONG TO RESPOND BUT THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SUPERB AND COMPASSIONATE. Thin bitter espressos are the norm for this non performer. Box states otherwise.
Per O. Johansen (quality: 4.0) 01.29.2000 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Looks nice, but too static and noisy...
Will Taylor 12.04.2001 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Hard to beat for $60, but only for coarse grinds.

Bottom Line: Very good consistency for the price
Darren (quality: 4.8) 09.24.2001 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Large capacity for home use.  Static scatters coffee everywhere.
Roger Grantham (quality: 4.5) 09.03.2001 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Great step up from rotary-blade grinder.
Robert Noles (quality: 5.0) 08.14.2001 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Good introductory burr grinder
Chris (quality: 6.0) 06.25.2001 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: If you are willing to modify it, it will work just fine for filter drip, vac, and press.  Useless for espresso.

Product Reviewed: Antiqua
Bottom Line: Like the stainless steel, but one unit broke, and replacement unit clogs.

Bottom Line: I may pay $30 for this machine, but no more...anything more, and I would consider upgrading to something better.

Bottom Line: One weak link makes this a short-lived grinder
Andrew _ (quality: 8.0) 11.27.2004 Rating: 7.2
Product Reviewed: Antigua
Bottom Line: This is good for non espresso purposes such as drip, press, and moka pot. Works fine as a secondary grinder.
