what is best grinder to make Turkish Coffee?
« on: January 04, 2018, 11:52:20 AM »
Is there a household electric grinder - less than $300 - that can grind beans into a fine enough powder?  Right now I grind by hand - but that takes a fair bit of work!

You may be able to find an old super jolly that would work or an astra that will do the trick as well.

From personal experience, I know that a used Nuova Simonelli MDX can do just this. Just to add another option to the list.

Astra, Jolly, MDX, just about any high end commercial espresso grinder should do the trick I would think. Price should be your determining factor.
