Grinders: Braun KM 30
Previous Product Grinders Next Product

An entry level burr grinder, this one is suitable for drip coffee only. It produces too much dust for press pot, and not an even enough grind for true espresso.

Andrea C 07.18.2009 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Excellent for drip coffee, adequate for espresso, but makes a mess.
Andrew Bajorinas (quality: 6.0) 02.21.2002 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: If you can't afford a good bur grinder, this is better than a whirly blade.
Bob Trancho (quality: 8.2) 01.14.2002 Rating: 3.6
Bottom Line: Mr. Coffee level grinding
Brian Combs (quality: 7.0) 01.17.2002 Rating: 6.0

Clif Swinford 02.12.2003 Rating: 1.8
Bottom Line: It beats putting your beans in a bag of rocks and backing over them. Just.
Colin Newell (quality: 3.5) 07.05.2001 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Reliable!
Daniel Marsalone (quality: 7.7) 07.14.2001 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Great inexpensive grinder for regular coffee and low end pump espresso machines (ie Krups/DeLonghi).
David K (quality: 3.5) 10.27.2000 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: Bad bad bad! You‘re better off using an old shoe.
David Lee (quality: 4.5) 01.15.2000 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: This is a great grinder for under $50. I don't drink espresso, only coffee, so I don't know how it is with espresso.
Dee Ann Abel (quality: 5.5) 10.12.2000 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: If you can afford it, get a better grinder.  If you can't afford it, get a Zassenhaus.  This one's a freakin' monster.
Denise B. (quality: 3.0) 07.06.2001 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: name and looks are deceiving- we were not at all impressed
Digital Bean (quality: 3.5) 12.04.2000 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: For  forty bucks? Come on what a deal, My last braun blade lasted 10 years and still works.It may not be the in the "Barbie kitchen", but it works.
Ed Grimly (quality: 3.0) 08.04.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Better than a blade and lets you grind your beans at home.
Howard L. Sheppard (quality: 5.0) 02.13.2000 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Perfect choice as a step up from blade grinders and it won‘t break your bank account
Jason Virtue (quality: 7.5) 04.05.2003 Rating: 4.6
