Wilfa - WGCG2 Svart - Burr Coffee Grinder
The Svart grinder v0.1 from Wilfa (Norway) is now well established in the the market. It was developed between Wilfa & Tim Wendelboe - a man who knows coffee, and whose opinions are widely respected in the speciality coffee industry.
This is the first version of the Svart. It has a faster motor, grinds faster and has a silver body.
The Wilfa Svart is a perfect option for anyone looking for a low volume grinder to use at home or in the office. It can grind for a wide variety of brew methods - stovetop, Aeropress, filter / drip coffee machines, Cafetiere, V60, Chemex and most others. (Not espresso though.)
The most common question:
What's the difference between this model and the Black one?
This version was the original. It's silver and comes with a slightly faster RPM motor speed. That means it grinds faster, but with a little more heat.
From Oct 2020, this unit is priced at £105 (we sell for £99), and the Black model sells for £135.
Is it better or worse than the black version? Honestly, there's not much in it. At this level, the difference is marginal. If you are a coffee nerd, buying for Chemex, Kalita etc and think you can taste the difference, then by all means pay slightly more and buy the black version. If you are buying it for a cafetiere, electric filter machines etc, then just buy this version.
The domestic electric grinder conundrum
Domestic electric grinders are a difficult one, with cheap low volume units (Bodum, Dualit etc) producing poor grind quality, while higher price point grinders (£150+) are a step too far for many and don't produce exceptional grind either.
The Wilfa Svart fills that gap. It's the grinder that lots of coffee lovers have been waiting for - a brew method / filter coffee grinder that is fast, consistent, easy to use and doesn't break the bank.
Wilfa grinders come with a standard 1 year back to base warranty including parts and labour. *See our terms and conditions for further information
