  • Breaking News! The Fellow Ode has answered the prayers of the Cult of Coffee Believers. Rejoice and be glad! We've been longing for a brew grinder that will give us cafe grade performance and will look good on a countertop. What is the Ode in reference to? Itself? Fellow Believers? Let's take a closer look.

    With professional-grade, 64 mm flat burrs, the Ode will give you consistent, even grounds with minimal boulders and fines. No need to worry about waking your significant other while you're trying to surprise them with breakfast in bed - the Ode is whisper quiet. AND it will auto stop once it's finished grinding - so you can focus on flipping your pancakes or pre-wetting your filter. The magnetic grounds catch is smooth, satisfying, and secure. To top it all off, there's a grounds knocker! Hallelujah! All of us burnt out baristas who miss knocking out the last bits of coffee on a Mahlkonig EK43 get to relive that satisfying experience on the Ode - leaving you with minimal grind retention.

    The Ode is designed to be a single dose grinder - that means bye bye giant hopper and hello to your coffee staying fresher, longer. Fear not, the small hopper can accommodate 80g of coffee - plenty for your big batch brews. With its small footprint, thoughtful design, and premium finish, the Ode is the answer to your home grinding needs and then some. Stop doubting and start believing.

    This 120V model is only compatible with outlets in the US and Canada. To find an international retailer near you, head HERE. Ode Brew Grinder is not an espresso grinder nor suitable for moka pots.

Works good for my pour overs and moccamaster. Looks good on my counter and feels very solidly built. Grinds consistently. Only downside is some of the grounds will get on the magnet bottom after you pull the grind cup out. The knock doesn't really seem to help much. Overall pretty small downside especially as there's not much else in this price range other than the ugly and worse performing baratza.

An Ode To The Daily Grind

I’ve had my Ode for nearly a month now, and have truly loved the impact it has had on the quality of my coffee!

Super grinder

Upgraded from a Porlex hand grinder - I highly recommend this Fellow Ode grinder. Obviously it’s on the expensive end, but well worth it. I use my French press at setting 6, and my aeropress at setting 2.

I’m giving it five five stars, but it does seem to create some loose coffee grinds / static - the knocker gets rid of most of it (see James Hoffman review on YouTube). After about a week or two, you you learn how to make a tidier grind and don’t have to clean up as much. Other than that, I highly recommend this. If I ever have to buy another one, I definitely would.

Oh also, to state the obvious: It looks super on the countertop.

Intentional design, fits my needs.

I would rate this 4.5 stars. Here is the brass tax based on my daily use since December: it makes coffee that tastes exceedingly good using pour-overs such as V60, Fellow Stagg X, and Espro Bloom, and for drip coffee with my Moccamaster. That being said, there are design tradeoffs (which is understandable, just worth knowing). This is a superb tool for my 40-60g doses with my Moccamaster; great grind consistency, and enough incremental adjustability to hit the tastes I want. So far, it has worked great for each of my three pour-overs. I generally do 20-22 grams. For V60, I have generally used settings 2-6, which confuses me, but is likely due to different varieties of coffee beans and sometimes I use beans that are a bit older, and feel like I should grind finer. For Espro Bloom especially but also the Fellow Stagg, which both have faster drawdowns than V60 in my experience, I have generally been between 1.B-5. I have never needed to use the finest setting, but I have had to use the second finest setting. This makes me a bit nervous, as I would prefer to have a bit more runway at the bottom in case I run into a coffee that needs to be ground particularly fine. However, I have not had problems with the brew methods I listed; it has suited all of my needs so far.

A few caveats: I am annoyed by the level of static, but it is not a deal-breaker to me. It just means I need to spend more time cleaning my work station, because grounds will fall out and fly everywhere. Though, this is often the case with higher quality grinders. I have used the Ross Droplet Technique (RDT) to reduce the static, and that almost eliminates the static. The only problem is that RDT causes beans to stick in the hopper; you need to push them in, they won't fall naturally. This is also the case with oily beans, especially dark roasts: I was grinding some Starbucks coffee for my dad, and the beans kept sticking to the hopper instead of falling down the chute. For the catch cup, I really like the idea of the fins to direct the coffee, as it helps with spillage. The fins just make the catch cup a bit harder to clean, which is a problem when there is static. I have had mixed success with the grounds knocker, but again this is less of an issue with RDT. All these things are annoyances, but I am honestly just really blown away by how nice the coffee tastes. I can nitpick, but I really love my Fellow Ode. Excited to see if they can fix some of these issues in subsequent versions, as this is a great grinder.
