I’ve been using a coffee and spice grinder for many years. In my opinion, nothing beats a freshly ground and brewed cup of coffee first thing in the morning. The one our family has been using for the past 10 years is a basic grinder with no fancy features. Since it’s starting to show its age, I’ve been researching online to see what’s out there. That’s when I came across the Krups 203 electric coffee and spice grinder. You see, I am looking for something that is simple to use and does what it’s supposed to.

History of Krups Coffee Grinder
Now that I’ve covered a few of the key benefits and features of this grinder, I thought it would be interesting to find out more about this company – Krups. The company believe it or not, started back in 1846 and focused on manufacturing high quality scales.
However, the company in 1956 launched the first ever electric coffee grinders. If you thought we were addicted to our coffee today, check this out. During their first year of manufacturing coffee grinders, they sold 1 million grinders. To say that they have perfected the art of coffee grinders would be an understatement.
Today, the Krups company is a leader in manufacturing a variety of small appliances for the kitchen, including; coffee grinders, coffee machines, electric kettles, juicers, waffle makers, toasters and hand blenders. Those are the main product lines.
Their company motto – Precision – Perfection – Passion…
