Braun Aromatic KSM2-B Coffee Grinder
- Stainless steel blade grinds the beans to the fineness that I like my coffee to be
- The cord stores under the machine, making it easy to store Con
- The grinder is not the easiest to clean, since not all the pieces come apart
- The grinder only comes in black which doesn't match the rest of my kitchen accessories which are white
Overall, I get what I need out of my coffee grinder. Since I am an avid coffee drinker and like my beverage to be fresh in the morning, I like to buy the beans and grind them myself, because I find the taste to be more fresh. When I first started using the Braun Aromatic, I was surprised at how fine my coffee was ground.
I had problems in the past with the beans being too thick. The price is reasonable, which is why I was surprised the amount of power I was getting for such a decent priced grinder. I did have a problem with cleaning the grinder after I used it. You can only really pour water and soup inside because the pieces do not come apart.
This runs the risk of a soapy aftertaste if not washed out properly. The grinder is small and easy to store in my kitchen. The cord is kept under the grinder, which is very convenient. I also didn't find the grinding noise to be too bothersome. It actually becomes somewhat soothing and after a few days my dog stopped barking at it when I would use it. Since the grinder grinds the coffee luickly, the noise is not even on for that long anyway. I also found that the coffee grinder could be used to also ground fresh spices for me to use in my cooking.
It gets the spices ground to just the right consistency. Overall, I am very happy with my Braun Aromatic grinder and am happy to have purchased it.
