There is nothing quite as awesome as the rich aroma of coffee brewing, especially first thing in the morning - but to get a truly full-tasting drink, you need make it with freshly ground beans.

Grinding is a necessity for all self-respecting coffee connoisseurs. Unfortunately, some machines can be bulky and take up a lot of surface and storage space. One solution to the problem is to invest in a mini.

These compact units come in many forms. The majority are blade machines, meaning that the beans are sliced repeatedly until they are at right level of coarseness/fineness. These can be either manually operated, using a crank, or powered by electricity.

A Brief History of Coffee

  • According to legend, coffee was originally discovered by an Ethiopian goat herder, who found that his goats were super energetic after eating the red berries from a certain plant.
  • It was the Arabs who first cultivated coffee in plantations and for a long time they held a monopoly on the coffee trade.
  • The Turks were the first to create coffee shops in the 15th Century.
  • Coffee's early history was controversial and it was banned in some countries.  Pope Vincent III considered banning it but changed his mind after sampling a drink.
  • In the 18th Century, some of the European countries got hold of coffee plants, and began growing the crop commercially in their colonies, spreading the drink around the world.
