De’Longhi KG79 Coffee Grinder

Product information

The De’Longhi KG79 Coffee Grinder is features a Burr grinding system to perfectly grind coffee beans, without overheating, and thereby preserving the coffee aroma, to help you to obtain a great, flavoursome coffee.

A cup selector will allow you to grind beans for between 2 and 12 cups of coffee automatically, stopping after the required amount of beans have been ground. The fineness selector can grind beans from fine to medium to coarsely ground coffee.

A transparent bean container gives you a view of how grinding is going, and is being fully removable for easy access. A dual safe system will turn off the grinding wheels if either the ground coffee or bean container is removed.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not suitable for espresso As other reviewer/s have said this on finest setting does not grind fine enough for espresso. Seems a nice unit otherwise; probably fine for everything else. Have returned it as doesn't do what I want it to. It seems going another league or 2 up is necessary to get a consistent fine grind. 24 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good grinder, great price All seems to be great with this grinder. For me, this was able to grind for each brew method. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must have item We have a bean to cup machine, and have really got into coffee. We went to a coffee demo and the guy who did the demo has his own company selling quality beans. He showed us an amazing item called an aeropress coffee maker which is great for taking on holiday or using at home if you have not got a fancy machine. It produced a perfect cup of coffee and we got one ourselves to take away when stopping in hotels, so we wanted to grind our beans to have fresh ground coffee every time. So I looked for a grinder and came across this one. Having had it explained about finer grinds etc., this was perfect, don't be put off by thinking this will not grind fine enough, as it does. It's down to the type of coffee and how fast you run the water through it that gives you your strength and taste not just how fine your grind is, if you want to be a real coffee snob it's even down to the weight of beans. We took this and our press away a few weeks back and enjoyed our favourite coffee each morning, instead of the hotel rooms offerings. 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Coffee just got better Grinder works excellent and has improved our coffee experience. The ability to adjust the grind level and number of cups is perfect for making an excellent cup of coffee. We have a De’Longhi EC680 and can now really enjoy our espresso. It took a few tries to find the right setting of the grind bit once done it is excellent. Only draw back is that the coffee holder has some static so coffee sticks all over compartment. Just a bit more cleaning every now and then. Excellent grinder overall. 03 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good all purpose grinder Very pleased with this purchase. The machine is robust, looks stylish should fit nicely on most kitchen work spaces. Settings to select the fineness of the grind and the quantity of coffee are operated by two separate dials which remain in position with a reassuring click; the build quality is high for the price. One can also manually override the amount of ground produced by pressing the power button during the grinding process which gives greater flexibility. All working parts can be removed for cleaning. For the price, I found this machine very suitable for everyday use. 11 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good grinder Nice little machine,does what it says on the box.Quick,easy,works very well. 05 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not suitable for espresso Anonymous of Whitstable is correct to point out that the burr should be firmly locked into place by turning counter clockwise. However in my case the coffee was to coarse, even at the finest setting, for espresso and the water pumped through to fast. I had to return the machine. 23 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great grinder I wasn't sure to buy this coffee grinder or not because some people mentioned that it didn't grind fine enough. Eventually I bought it and I am happy with it. It grinds perfectly fine. In addition, you can choose how much coffee you want to be ground (for how many cups). Great purchase! 03 March 2015
