Sort out your grinds for the perfect cup of coffee with the Kruve Sifter


The coffee enthusiast will tell you that a good, consistent grind is essential to the perfect cup of coffee. That’s hard to achieve at home without a high-end coffee grinder. The Kruve Sifter is an ingenious solution that enables you to consistently get the most out of your beans with the grinding gear you already have in your kitchen.

The Kruve Sifter is ridiculously simple. A pair of sieves are inserted into stackable trays with a lid. Pour in your grinds and give it a shake. The ideal grinds for your brewing system are now separated from the larger and smaller particles (known as “boulders” and “fines” in coffee lingo), ensuring that you achieve the perfect flavor profile for your precious beans. 

The Kruve Sifter is available in silver, red and black. Three packages are offered (the Two, Six and Twelve) that are distinguished by the number of different sized screens included in the package so that you can dial in the specific grind level for your needs. The Six and Twelve also include a rack for your sieves. Prices range from $49 to $129.

I’m interested in picking one of these up to see what it will do for the trusty blade grinder in my kitchen. If you’re ready to step up your coffee game, you can purchase the Kruve Sifter directly by visiting the Kruve, Inc. web site.

    Wouldn’t be cheaper to buy a burr grinder instead? Those will put out grounds with very consistent size. (Blade grinders are terrible in that respect, BTW.)

      Hi, John! Thanks for the comment!

      A burr grinder could be cheaper, depending upon how precise you want to be and how much work you want to put in.

      Some of the burr-style hand grinders (I’m thinking Hario) get good quality ratings, and are available for under $100. However, there are those that insist you still can’t get good consistency unless you buy a commercial-quality machine.

      Yeah, blade grinders aren’t great about consistency. I had a hand-powered burr grinder (not a Hario), but it fell apart on me. The blade grinder is OK, but I’m currently shopping options for a burr-style grinder to replace it.

    I have had the EcoGrinder for 18 months, and cannot believe it’s less than $20. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ZZFZUC8/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Just go buy one. Adjustable burrs, travel friendly, can fit into an Aeropress to dump out it’s grinds. One accessory I recommend is a plastic jar opener to hold it with. You know, those little loud sheets of flexible rubber or silicone or foam that help you get a grip on that new jar of pickles. Hold it with that while you bring, and then use that to twist it apart. The thing is built like a tank – or a Mercedes. Solid, precise, functional, and – cheap? Crazy!

      I’ll have to check that out. I had a similar inexpensive hand-crank burr grinder (some generic manufacturer), but the thing broke after a month.

      I know people who swear by the Hario grinders, but this one looks like it may be worth checking out. Thanks for the tip!
