Major Releases of Coffee Grinding Equipment for the Home in 2023

New home coffee grinders 2023

Technology in higher-end grinders for the home took substantial strides forward in 2023.

Many of the new advancements are relate to the continued trend of single-dose grinding, as manufacturers seek to accommodate users’ desires from dose to dose such as different coffees or even brew methods. 

Among the most notable trends in 2023 was adjustable burr RPM, whereby users can adjust the speed of the burrs. More designs also sought to provide quick and easy access to the burrs for cleaning out any cross-contamination when switching coffees, or even to swap in different sets of compatible burrs for different brew methods. 

Of course, grinder manufacturers maintained their eternal fight against grinds retention, which is especially important in single-dosing applications. In 2023, some grinder makers presented novel mechanical solutions for mitigating static that causes retention, or for freeing up stuck grounds after the fact. 

As we continue our 2023 Year in Review, here is a range of new grinding equipment that launched for home users.

The inner cone Burly is spun at 350 RPM with 6 Nm of torque. The machine includes the same anti-static mechanism found in the new Ode… read more

The Ion Beam is an ion generator that produces negative ions from its front end and positive ions from the back. The purpose is to minimize static electricity in coffee grounds that have built up either a positive or negative charge during grinding, depending on factors such as the coffee’s roast level, the style of grinder and atmospheric conditions… read more

A Closer Look at the Timemore Grinder Line that Fetched Nearly $5 Million on Kickstarter

The Turbo burrs take a hybrid approach to their cutting geometry by partially incorporating a nubby tooth shape akin to what is found on “ghost” burrs, which are designed to reduce fines for better non-espresso brews. The more conventional flat burr designs, meanwhile, are made to accommodate the finer grinds necessary for espresso, while also offering high uniformity for pourover and other methods of brewing… read more

A brushless 200-watt motor spins the 83-millimeter, titanium-coated conical burrs within a user-adjustable speed range of 90-150 RPM. The grinder’s inner cone burr is held by an internal hook system similar to a buckle and can be quick-released by hand for easy access and cleaning, while a locking mechanism preserves the grinder’s settings and alignment… read more
