How To Use The Bröyêur Manual Coffee Grinder?
Every aspect of this coffee mill stands for convenience and consistent performance; from the removable crank handle that just has to be pushed down on a hexagonal nut to the viewing windows that show the grind quality and quantity. In fact, don’t be surprised if you start looking forward to using this coffee grinder each morning. So, here is how you start the process:
Go for the right beans
Ultimately, how good the brew taste will depend on the beans you pick, and “fresh” is the key to great tasting coffee. Check the packing for roast date and only pick beans that have been roasted no more than a few weeks ago. A tell-tale sign of freshly roasted beans is the thin film of coffee oils that cover their surface.
Get acquainted with your Bröyêur Manual Coffee Grinder Ready
The unit comprises of the coffee ground cup, which sits at the base, the stainless steel hopper that goes on top of it, the lid and the hand operated crank that has to be pushed onto the hexagonal nut. Notice, how you won’t have to bother with unscrewing the crank handle to refill, which makes life simpler. Plus, the removable crank handle saves storage space.
Using the coffee mill
Start by removing the crank handle and opening the lid. Next, pour in the coffee beans (about 6 tbsp). Put the lid back on, followed by the crank handle. Place the unit on the counter and hold it firmly with one hand and start moving the crank in clockwise direction with the other hand. Depending on how fast or slow you go, it takes about 60 to 90 seconds to go through one load of beans.
The java beckons you
Remove the hopper and spoon the coffee grounds out of the cup or simply empty the cup into the brewer and that is all you will have to do to get an authentic, artisanal coffee experience each morning.
Adjusting the Bröyêur For Grind Range
Bröyêur can do everything from the coarse grind needed for French Press and pour over to the extra fine grounds needed for Espresso Makers. The adjustment knob is placed at the base of the hopper. It has a click mechanism, so you can count the number of clicks it takes to get the grind you prefer.
Turn the knob to the right or clockwise for finer grounds and turn it to the left or counterclockwise to make the grind coarser.
- Usually about 5-6 clicks should get you medium grounds (feel like sand particles) which are right for drip coffee makers.
- Coarse grinds are needed for French Press / percolator and vacuum coffee pots. These are the size of kosher salt and 3-4 clicks should get you there.
- Fine grounds which are finer than table salt and sugar will need 6-7 clicks and you will need these for drip coffee makers with cone filters and Espresso Moka pots
- The extra fine grinds needed for espresso machines will take another click. The grounds are finer than sugar but still not powdery.
- Finally, you will get to the almost flour-like grinds known as Turkish which are used in the Ibrik at the 9-10th click.
Cleaning The Bröyêur After Use
Given the simplistic design of the coffee grinder, cleaning the unit is just as simple as using it.
- Use the complimentary brush after every use to clean the burr and the inside surfaces of the hopper and the cup.
- Although the hopper does not need to be washed after each use, you can give the grinds cup a quick rinsing and leave it out to dry.
- Only use mild dish soap and sponge to clean the outer body of the grinder. After a few weeks of use, you may notice deterioration in the performance of the grinder. Blame this on the coffee oils that adhere to the surface of the burr. To remove these, dip the hopper in diluted, neutral detergent for a few minutes and rinse.
- Always let the unit dry thoroughly before re-assembling and storing it.
Things To Remember With Your Bröyêur
- Never turn the crank handle anticlockwise as this will damage the burr
- Do not use metal sponges, steel brushes or other abrasive cleaners on the product.
- After every 4-5 uses, clean the burr with the complimentary long handled brush to remove the residual particles from the hopper and the surface of the burr.
You may have to reset the range of grind after washing. Always test a small batch of beans first and then adjust as needed.
Why Should You Go For The Bröyêur Over An Electric Grinder?
If you are a coffee purist nothing but a burr grinder will do for you because that is the only way to extract all the aromatic oils and compounds from the beans that lend your cup of joe its rich flavor. Even if you are willing to settle on less than perfect taste and aroma, electric mills are noisy and typically have larger capacity. So, you end up grinding more beans than what you need, usually at a time of the day when you won’t disturb everybody around.
This means that the grind which gets to the cup is no better than the commercial, stale stuff. Now, compare this with the offerings of the Bröyêur Manual Coffee Mill. You get more than enough grind for two cups to meet your morning java cravings. So, it is always fresh ground coffee for you. The grinder is not 100% silent but the sound is not nearly as annoying or loud as that of an electric mill.
Plus, it may not give you the same quantity of grind but it is only a couple of seconds slower. Now, add to this the fact that it’s several times cheaper than an electric mill and you know you have every reason to indulge yourself with the Bröyêur Manual Coffee Grinder
The Bröyêur Advantage Over Other Manual Coffee Grinders!
The stainless steel construction is impact resistant and will give you more years of consistent performance than a flimsy, plastic mill ever can. Unlike grinders with plastic hoppers, you don’t have to worry about cracks. Static is also not a problem with this unit, so the coffee grounds do not stick to every surface they touch. Since it can be a nightmare to clean the mess that the charged grounds leave, using the Bröyêur mill is so much more convenient.
Because the design includes a ceramic burr, you will not encounter the funky taste that is common with metallic burrs. Moreover, the lid on top of the hopper means that you won’t have to deal with jumpy beans. This is a no mess and no fuss grinder that gets your day off to a great start.
A lot of people are worried about tiring their arm and hand in the process of using a manual mill. However, Bröyêur has managed to cut down the effort needed to grind the coffee beans by using the perfect sized crank handle. The steel handle can be moved around with minimal effort and it takes 60 to 90 seconds of work to turn 6 tbsp of beans into grounds ready for brewing.
