Melitta Amigo Coffee Grinder

Freshly ground coffee then gives your coffee machine machine the best chance to give you that excellent feeling normally only achievable from a first rate coffee shop. While it is advantageous to have freshly cooked beans, it is more important to have freshly ground beans, hence the coffee shop grinds while you wait.

This is a small machine at 19x9x8cm and it weighs 894 grams. There is a 44 page operating instruction guide which is in 12 languages. The mains lead is to my mind a little short at 50cm long and the only other item in the box is a 12cm long brush to clean out the inside of the machine.

First acquire yourself some beams, available from most supermarkets but I found next day delivery from a lot of places gets you the fresh cooked beans as you never know how far in advance supermarket offerings were cooked.

The top 6cm is the lid this can be used to judge the amount of beans you grind at one time or with the lid removed you can pour the beans straight into the unit. The lid itself is clear so when it is replaced you can see how far ground the beans have become. It is designed to be used in 30 second amounts but you could achieve the desired smallness in less time.

The lid only fits one way as the working button part is a slight protrusion.

I found this easy to use and easy to clean and while I would have liked a somewhat longer mains lead I swapped things round to get a length suitable for its use.

At the time of publication the Meletti Amigo Coffee Grinder is available from Amazon for £29.21
