    10 Best Coffee Grinders in the Philippines 2022 | Buying Guide Reviewed by Barista

    It makes a huge difference if you use a coffee grinder to grind your beans fresh every time. Whether it is a piping hot kapeng barako to start out day dipped with pan de sal, new age cold brew, or just plain iced coffee, you can guarantee that we Filipinos drink at least a cup throughout the day. Sadly, we can’t just go out and get our coffee fix. Why not make the most of this time to brew - and grind - your own coffee? And we’re not talking about using store-bought coffee grounds either - but milling your own beans. We’ve prepared a buying guide to help you select the best coffee grinders and our top picks for your morning brew. To choose even easier, we asked three-time National Latte Art Champion Joe Marie Lichangco for some of his comments and tips regarding coffee grinders.
