Grinding whole beans just before brewing them will both enhance the flavor extraction and produce the absolute best experience from your beans purchase.
It turns out that it’s actually easy and simple to be able to grind fresh coffee consistently like a professional – if you use the right tools of course. If you are going to invest the money in a professional coffee grinder for your beans then it is recommended to get a ceramic burr grinder.
When you use a ceramic canonical burr it helps to:
- Protect the delicate coffee oils from excess heat,
- Helps you grind the coffee to a consistent size (fine to coarse).
Other coffee mill grinders use a steel burr coffee grinder or steel blade coffee grinder. The problem with them is they can create excess heat and produce inconsistent grind size.
1. Manual Burr Coffee Grinders
Hario are a leading coffee supplier. The Hario Skerton hand-crank coffee mill does a great job at producing a consistent grind plus it has a special feature. It has a handy lid to cover the whole beans tray. You need this so when you are turning the handle that the beans don’t jump out or accidentally spill out over the kitchen counter or floor. It happens trust me.
Porlex is another Japanese company and it specialises in food grinders. This is an interesting hand grinder.
Since it has a stainless steel exterior it is more durable for biohackers who do lots of air travel & road trips for business or pleasure. It has a static free body to stop the coffee grinds getting stuck inside the container.
Plus, it can fit inside an AeroPress for compact travelling.
That’s how you get to feel like an awesome travel coffee hacker 🙂
The Hario mini coffee mill slim grinder (MSS-1 1101) is designed to be small for easy storage and quick 1-2 cup grinding. It comes with a lid to stop beans going all over the place, but there is one very interesting feature users have found – you can dispense the ground coffee straight into an AeroPress. Apparently, people discovered that the mill fits perfectly in the mouth of the AeroPress.
2. Electric Burr Coffee Grinders
Now we are talking! Use these electric operated ceramic grinders when your are running a low-carb high-fat coffee shop from your kitchen. These are perfect when hosting party guests around your place and when your family or friends pop round to visit 🙂
The Baratza encore conical burr with bin to catch the grinds is the ultimate home electric grinder. With 40 adjustable grind settings this is a machine used by experts when needing different grind sizes accuracy from coarse drip/manual brew to fine grinds for espresso. Users also live it for creating minimal static in the collection tray which happens with other makes. This is the best for the $100-$200 price range.
The Bodum bistro electric burr grinder is a great choice for those looking in the $50-$100 price range. It will give you a great professional experience for the price. Expect to get consistent grind size results each time you use it. Click a link below to read one of the over 1500 reviews, testimonials and 4-star user ratings from others who purchased it on Amazon.

Jokes aside, you must be able to blend all the vital healthy fats, like the grass-fed butter, ghee, XCT or Brain Octane oil into the coffee in order to get the maximum benefit and perfect taste.
“What is the best blender for making Bulletproof® coffee?” there are two preferred choices.
The Vitamix & Blendtec blenders are the top two choices that Dave recommends most often to use as a blender for hot coffee & hot liquids. They are the most expensive options, but they get the job done every time. The difference between the two is not that much, but the Vitamix is supposed to be better for making Bulletproof iced coffee in the Summer.
Here are some other choices depending on your budget:
1. Basic Milk Frother
A simple electric milk frothing tool like this Kuissential Slickfroth might suffice. It is easy to pack when traveling which makes it convenient at airports, hotels and camp sites. It doesn’t have much power, which is the downside to using it.
If you are looking for the best travel blender then we suggest just to get either the Bulletproof travel mug or insulated stainless bottle. You would put everything into either bottle and then just shake it all up whilst holding onto it. Does a decent job when on the road.
2. Handheld Blender
Some people want a hand immersion blender as a step up from the milk frother, but might not have the budget, or kitchen top space, to invest in one of the recommended powerful blenders. The KitchenAid KHB2351CU might do the trick. Things can get messy when using an immersion blender so you need something deep enough so it doesn’t froth or spill out.
Hamiliton Beach Blender
3. Magic Bullet Blender
4. Ninja Professional Blender
5. Vitamix Blender
6. Blendtec Blender
Then there is the professional version. If you run a food truck, coffee shop, cafe or restaurant then this is the one to get. It dampens the sound from the blender to make it one of the quietest food blenders available plus it you can use it for paleo batters, mixed drinks, low carb smoothie, frozen desserts, green whole juice, and making hot soup or broths.

Best Timers & Kitchen Scales
The reason why you will need a kitchen scale is to help you weigh the correct amount of coffee beans, grass fed butter or other foods used in Bulletproof® Diet recipes. If you’ve forgotten or don’t know the exact amounts use guide amounts on the Bulletproof® Coffee recipe here.
You do need an analogue or digital timer to know exactly how long you have been brewing your coffee, that is why we recommend using the Bonavita kettle above. Upgraded™ coffee beans should be brewed for 4 minutes if you are using the French press method.
Digital Kitchen Scales
The Ozeri professional digital kitchen scale is a beautifully designed digital scale for absolute measurement accuracy requirements when measuring your green zone foods on the diet poster or grams of freshly ground coffee beans.
Hario is a Japanese specialist tea and coffee equipment manufacturer. They have been making heatproof glassware since 1921. Their version of a coffee scale comes with a digital timer built-in. P.S. these are the ones normally spotted behind the counter of boutique third-wave coffee shops.
Mechanical Kitchen Scales
If you don’t want a battery operated scale this is a good option. If you prefer the larger, easy to read dial and want to measure heavier weight items up to 22lbs then the Norpro kitchen scale should do the job just fine.
