If you’re looking for consistency at espresso-fine grind settings, burr type matters.  Compared to conical burrs, flat burr grinders result in a higher level of consistency and generally have better heat retention too.

Finding the best flat burr espresso grinder for your needs, however, can be a bit overwhelming—there’s a lot to choose from. Lucky for you, we’ve collected a few of our absolute favorite flat burr grinders for you to peruse right here.

Eureka Mignon Facile Espresso Grinder in White

121 Reviews
The Eureka Mignon Facile is a Whole Latte Love exclusive grinder that borrows the best features of the Mignon Silenzio and incorporates them into an incredibly competitive and accessible package. With micrometric grind adjustment and the Silent System, the Mignon Facile is the perfect first grinder for the aspiring home barista.

This Whole Latte Love exclusive grinder has everything you need to grind consistently with ease, plus a price tag that might leave you wondering what the catch is. 

(There isn’t one.) 

For under $400, you get 50mm flat steel burrs that grind at 1250 rpm quietly. This  highly versatile grinder features stepless adjustment, meaning you can easily dial in your grind size for an espresso machine or French press—and everything in between. 

Top it off with anti-static technology, single-button operation, and Eureka’s legendary build quality, and you’ve got what just might be the best value in espresso grinders we’ve ever seen.

Ceado Life Coffee Grinder - Black

3 Reviews
The Life Grinder from Ceado is a compact multi-purpose home coffee grinder that marries the design and know-how of Ceado’s commercial grinders with a compact and friendly design that encourages experimentation. Equipped for single-dosing, traditional espresso grinding, and easy maintenance, the Life is a strong contender for both your first and last coffee grinder.

Ceado is known for making truly excellent, top-end espresso grinders, and that reputation is well upheld by the Life—Ceado’s most affordable flat burr grinder. 

This is a grinder designed for ultimate versatility. Out of the box it comes equipped to function in single-dose or hopper configurations, and its programmable shot buttons allow you to dispense ground coffee whichever way you please—up to two preset timed doses or push-to-start-and-stop. 

The top 50mm steel burr is fixed in place while the bottom burr moves when making stepless grind adjustments. This means the top burr is easily removed for cleaning without disturbing your grind setting.

Eureka Mignon Specialita Espresso Grinder in Lime Green

107 Reviews
The Eureka Mignon Specialità is an easy-to-use burr grinder with 55 mm burrs and a touch screen display that makes all the difference. It grinds quietly and its controls are simple and responsive.

If you like the idea of the Facile but are looking for a bit more power and programmability, the Eureka Mignon Specialita is the perfect option. 

The upgrades begin with 55mm hardened steel burrs that crank out coffee grounds at an impressive 1.8 grams per second—that’s under 10 seconds for a full basket of espresso. 

The Specialita also features a vibrant and intuitive touchscreen that allows you to easily program doses in increments of 1/10 of a second. 

Like the Facile, the Specialita is almost unbelievably quiet and features Eureka’s patented anti-static technology for clean grinding every time. Available in a veritable rainbow of vibrant colors, the Specialita can be made to match just about any aesthetic.

Ceado E37S Quick Set Espresso Grinder in White

164 Reviews
The E37S takes programmability to the next level with its touchscreen display and Ceado’s Portioning System Selector. Program and dose three personalized presets with this powerful, doserless grinder with stepless worm gear adjustment and impressive 83mm burrs.

Ceado’s E37S is one of the grinders that helped solidify their reputation as purveyors of the highest-quality espresso grinders around. This NSF-certified behemoth features 83mm stainless steel burrs and a mechanically suspended 500 watt motor that’s 30% quieter than other grinders in its class without sacrificing on power. 

The intuitive touchscreen is capable of pre-programming three different doses and also features a manual grinding mode. 

Use the micrometric stepless adjustment knob to fine-tune your dialing-in process, or totally unlock the worm gear to make large jumps from espresso to French press grind sizes. The steady-lock burr system ensures your grind stays where you set it, no matter how many shots you brew. 

With all of this in mind, it’s no wonder our in-house experts refer to the E37S as “The King” of grinders.
