The Wifa Svart Grinder is one of the best, most convenient home electric coffee grinders on the market.
Introducing a reasonably priced home electric grinder
It’s often said that electric grinders for the home or office can break the bank. On the other side, cheaper home grinders can be less durable or require manual grinding by hand.
That’s where the Wilfa Svart comes into it’s own.
It’s price target is mid-range but still boasts a great design, long term durability and the power to create consistent grind results every time.
It’s low volume, sleek design means it will look great on your kitchen side. You can show it off to your friends when they come round to your home. And you can give them some amazing, fresh ground coffee. Or even impress when you’re inviting clients to your office.
Do you have your own home brew lab? It will look great in there too.
The Wilfa Svart Grinder settings for the home
The Wilfa SVART Aroma is easy to use, the grind level indicator makes the adjustment quick and simple for your preferred home brew method.
The settings can produce coffee for almost any of your preferred home brewing methods – the stovetop espresso maker, Aeropress coffee maker, filter / drip or V60 brewing, Cafetiere or french press, Chemex and many others.
However, if you’re looking to grind your beans for an espresso machine, the Wilfa Svart probably wouldn’t be the choice for you
Using the steep, french press or filter settings will give you a coarse grind, while Aeropress and Mocca settings will give you a finer grind. But not as fine as espresso grind for machines.
How the Wilfa Svart Grinder works
Firstly, you place the coffee beans in the top section of the grinder, called the hopper.
Tip: You don’t want to leave your beans in the hopper for too long, so the advice is to put in the hopper just about enough for the day on which you are using it
Using the built-in timer, you set how long you want the machine to grind for. This is great for ensuring you get the same amount of grind every time – so if you know how you like your coffee, you’ll love this.
Coffee beans are ground from a 250g hopper, a timer allows for correct volumes depending on how many cups you are making.
There’s also an easy to use grind adjustment which again is built into the machine as part of the 250g hopper.
Canonical Burr Grinding
The Wilfa Svart uses canonical burrs, which means they produce much less heat while grinding. What that means is you maintain the amazing aromas that come from the coffee beans. Imagine the amazing smell of fresh coffee oozing round the house on a Saturday morning.
Cleaning the Wilfa Svart Grinder
As they say, a clean grinder is happy at work. That;’s why the product is designed to be easily dismantled and washed when necessary. It’s important to clean your grinder after use so that you can reap the rewards over a longer period of time.
After cleaning and when re-assembling, make sure you align the burrs before locking them back in place
History of the Wilfa Svart Grinder
If you guessed that Wilfa Svart sounds scandinavian, you are right – it comes from Norway. New on the market, the Wilfa grinder was designed and developed as a partnership between Wilfa, the small home electric goods manufacturer & Tim Wendelboe. Tim is a Nordic coffee roaster and owner of espressobar.
Wilfa actually means sunbeam, Svart means black in Norwegian. So the grinder name in English would be Sunbeam Black – maybe not so cool sounding.
