 June 16, 2019

By  Enda McLarnon

Thanks for taking the time to read our review of the high end Wilfa Svart Aroma Coffee Grinder. With an RRP of just under £120, this is an expensive option. It is however a professional grade burr grinder, and for that type of grinder, they just do not come cheap.

This grinder does not take up a great deal of space and certainly looks the part as well. It has been designed to fit under the counter and also to be a space saver in the kitchen.

While those features are nice to have, the real test of any grinder is its ability to consistently grind an even grind at all of its settings. This grinder does have a choice of settings depending on the brewing method.

There are not a lot of online reviews about this grinder, but we did manage to find 20 reviews. Overall buyers have given this grinder a 75% buyer satisfaction rating.
