SHARDOR CG845B is a burr coffee grinder with stainless steel conical burrs. It has 14 different grind settings and can grind from 2 to 12 cups worth of beans at a time.
Grinds are fairly even and consistent compared to other burr grinders in this price class. Grind speed is also comparatively pretty fast. Works reasonably well for brewing methods that requite coarse to medium-fine grind size. For something like Espresso that requires fine grind this will not do a great job.
It’s a bit noisy but all burr grinders are. It’s not louder than others and is even quieter than some.
Bean hopper capacity is 8.8 oz (it does seem to actually hold a bit less, just under 8 oz) whereas grounds bin can hold 3.35 oz of grounds coffee.
Grounds bin is made of plastic so there’s some static. It doesn’t however cause as much mess as other SHARDOR burr grinders we have written about before.
Grind fineness is selected by rotating bean hopper (the lower the number the finer the grind) whereas under it you will find dial for selecting amount of cups to be grinded which also works as a button to start grinding.
Upper conical burr is removable making it easy to clean (especially with the included brush).
SHARDOR CG845B is one of the better inexpensive burr grinders you can buy. It’s also a significantly better than other models from the manufacturer. SHARDOR CG845B works a lot better than blade grinder however the flavor difference compared to using a burr grinder 2-3 times more expensive is quite significant.
