The one and only Fellow Ode Brew Grinder. In. The. Flesh.
So, what’s all the fuss about with the Ode grinder?
Most reasonable grinders manage an OK job of grinding brewed coffee and espresso without too much trouble. Still, the real coffee aficionado will be sharp enough to spot that they manage to master neither to perfection.
Until now. Step aside. The Ode is here to steal the show.
Hailed as a powerful and precise home grinder with café capabilities, the Ode, from Fellow, has reimagined the design of a grinder, taking your morning brew to café experience level while oozing style.
Does a home grinder really make that much difference?
Without a doubt freshly ground coffee will always produce a superior brew. Why? Because coffee is food, that’s been roasted. And, like food, coffee will go stale. Once the beans have been ground, additional moisture, oxidation and CO2 depletion all contribute to reducing the shelf life of the coffee. So, even if your ground coffee is vacuum packed, the sure-fire way to guarantee the freshest brew will always be to grind the beans you need upon demand.
But while recommendations to ‘grind your own’ beans to reach coffee utopia are often spouted, the average grinder has traditionally been large, clunky and noisy with space snaffling hoppers and grind settings that never quite manage to match up to the professional precision of machines like the Baratza Forte.
With 64mm professional-grade flat burrs, 31 grind settings, and a unique single dose load bin for maximum bean freshness, the Ode answers all those niggles - coming very close in performance to the mighty Baratza Forte, and for a fraction of the cost at £299.
The Fellow Ode Brew Grinder is a feat of engineering designed to perfect your daily brewed coffee — whether you opt for AeroPress®, pour-over, French press, cold brew, or something else. It really does set itself apart from the pack, as journalist Daniel Modin writes in his review: ‘Not only is the Ode Grinder one of the most beautiful things I own, it has improved my morning coffee substantially.’
And NYMag’s Louis Cheslaw who hailed the Ode as ‘a Breakthrough for Home Brewers’, said it didn’t take long to confirm that the Ode delivers on its promise of being a quieter grinder.
