The Aromatic Braun coffee grinder is available under Braun KSM2 with choice of white or black colors. It is very reasonably priced, and works with most traditional coffee pots. A dependable unit that performs consistently well.

Those who bought these Braun grinders really liked how they could adjust the coarseness of coffee by letting it grind for longer or shorter periods of time, while being able to observe the whole process.

Braun Burr Coffee Grinder

Unlike Braun Aromatic grinder the Braun KMM30 Espresso Mill is ideal if you enjoy relishing in espresso-type coffee drinks. With espresso, the coffee beans must be ground thinly; therefore, this burr grinder will more than likely be the one for you with its stone mill system of grinding.

The Braun Burr coffee grinder not only minces the coffee in a traditional drip style for a regular coffee maker, but the settings will allow you to create that really soft and fine espresso-like texture.
