Grinders: Bodum Antigua Grinder
Previous Product Grinders Next Product

The Bodum Antigua grinder is a good "starter" grinder using conical burrs. It can grind from a medium espresso grind up to a coarse drip pot grind, and a passable press pot grind. There are two models - normal, and metal.

Bottom Line: BODUM TAKES TOO LONG TO RESPOND BUT THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SUPERB AND COMPASSIONATE. Thin bitter espressos are the norm for this non performer. Box states otherwise.

Bottom Line: Poorly made, no manufacturer support.
Thomas Bafia (quality: 9.0) 06.03.2001 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Not a great grinder, but a good one. A step up from a whirly blade grinder.
Vic Lam (quality: 8.0) 05.17.2004 Rating: 7.2

Bottom Line: Versatile, barely passable for espresso after modification.

Bottom Line: One weak link makes this a short-lived grinder

Product Reviewed: Antigua
Bottom Line: This is good for non espresso purposes such as drip, press, and moka pot. Works fine as a secondary grinder.

Bottom Line: The metal-bodied version (tweaked) is just fine.

Bottom Line: It sounds like 2 angry Ninja's dueling to the death over the lost scolls of Tu-Pei (whatever that means).

Bottom Line: I may pay $30 for this machine, but no more...anything more, and I would consider upgrading to something better.
Alan Smith (quality: 7.2) 08.15.2002 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: False economy, expect to replace it in a year.

Bottom Line: Don't.
Steve S (quality: 7.0) 02.27.2002 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: It works and the heart of the unit is quite solid.  It deserves an 8 overall.
Robert Rosenberg (quality: 6.8) 01.19.2005 Rating: 6.6
Product Reviewed: Antigua
Bottom Line: Very good consistency for the price
Phillip Quattrocchi (quality: 6.8) 02.08.2002 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Its a good starter or upgrade for your first burr grinder.
Andy Black (quality: 6.0) 03.05.2005 Rating: 1.2

Bottom Line: Don't buy this it doesn't work.
Michael Stano (quality: 6.0) 01.16.2004 Rating: 6.8
Product Reviewed: Antiqua
Bottom Line: Like the stainless steel, but one unit broke, and replacement unit clogs.
Chris (quality: 6.0) 06.25.2001 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: If you are willing to modify it, it will work just fine for filter drip, vac, and press.  Useless for espresso.
Russell Malm (quality: 6.0) 05.31.2003 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Great, uniform, static free burr grinder for drip, french press, vac pot and chemex.
John Avelis (quality: 5.3) 05.08.2005 Rating: 8.4
Product Reviewed: Antigua Grinder
Bottom Line: This is a quality burr grinder for the price.
Douwe Dijkstra (quality: 5.0) 11.05.2000 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Good grinder, as long as you don't expect ultra fine espresso grinds
