Besides the traditional models, Faema's super automatic models are new and do everything from grinding the beans, tamping the grinds, make froth and also clean...

Burr Mill Coffee Grinder
The Burr Mill Coffee Grinders use the burrs in the grinding mechanism, as the name is self suggestive. The diverse varieties of the coffee beverages require dissimilar grades of the fineness of the coffee grounds. Like for example the fineness mandatory for an Italian espresso coffee will be entirely poles apart than that needed for the Turkish coffee. Also the French press or the drip brewing methods will necessitate a different category of delicacy. The coffee machine grinders are more often than not provided with the settings which can help in customizing the different settings and selecting the fineness of the ground coffee as necessary or as appropriate to the type of coffee you will be setting up to drink.
It is familiar understanding that any amount of extra heat imparted to the coffee beans will certainly spoil the natural flavour of the coffee and at the end of the day spoil the experience of the coffee drinking. To avoid the heat created during grinding, the coffee grinding machines make use of the conical burrs. These are wonderful innovations as they chop and cut the roasted whole coffee beans in a very minute way without releasing all that unnecessary heat.
The heat will definitely roast the beans and the ground sediment further and finally what you would get is a handful of bitter tasting and totally unpalatable coffee ground. Now that brings across the point that how ever excellent in quality the whole coffee beans may be, or how ever the amount of care you might have taken in roasting the whole coffee bean to perfection, yet the heat generated by the blades of the coffee grinding machine can totally spoil the quality of the drink and also mar the experience of enjoying a wonderful drink.
The burr mill grinders use a pair of these conical burrs and the roasted coffee beans are suitably pulverized in between them. The mode of operation of these burr mill grinders can be either manual or electric. The commercial varieties are mostly the electric ones. The manual variety is still used but only by people who really can go to any lengths for the ultimate taste of a cup of coffee.
The advantage of these burr mill grinders are that since they rotate the motors at a comparatively reduced speed, the heat generated is very less and also that they work quite smoothly and there is less of noise pollution created during the grinding process.
