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 3.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent machine Not sure why people are saying that this doesn't grind fine enough for espresso - I actually had to use a lower setting as it was too fine at the maximum!! Consistent grounds, wee bit noisy (I like that) and compact - perfect for the price too! Only TIIINY complaint is the static in the outlet - but a wee tap does away with that. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent burr grinder at unbeatable price We didn't think we could get a burr grinder at such an affordable price but the KG79 is a really excellent grinder producing a very consistent grind, even for espresso. Some reviewers have said that it doesn't grind fine enough for espresso but it's likely that the top burr is incorrectly assembled. Just remove and replace it in accordance with the instructions. Ours produces fine powder which will clog the machine on its finest setting. We find it about right for our EC820B machine when the dot is at 9 o'clock. It consistently produces just the right amount of coffee for a double espresso when the timer is set to 2. 27 October 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not suitable for Expresso I agree with others that this does not grind fine enough for expresso. I bought it to replace a Krups GVX2 on which the start button failed (as reported by many others). I have a very nice de'Longhi expresso machine so I was surprised that this did not grind fine enough to use in it. I returned it and was refunded - thank you John Lewis. I am sure that the basic grinding mechanism in this and the Krups is exactly the same. Unfortunately neither manufacturer has packaged it up well. I will now have to buy another Krups (which did allow the mechanism to be set to grind fine enough) and hope that the start button will last longer than the last one. 08 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life changing Going from a manual Burr grinder to this has saved me hours every week. A real value for money electric Burr grinder 01 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not good Did a resonable (not brilliant) job of grinding fairly coarse coffee on it's finest setting. Did this twice before smoking and burning out. If it had not burned out I don't think I would ever have been happy with it really. Would not buy again. 18 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good buy Good grinder with a wide range of easily adjusted settings. Grinds fine enough for espresso. Is a little noisy and the container for the ground coffee does suffer from static. Is easy to clean & takes up little room. Can be set to grind as little or as much as you need with a graded dial on the front. All in all I'd recommend this grinder. 14 July 2015
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
