Groove Compact Grinder - Joy Resolve

Groove Compact Grinder

The Groove Compact Grinder is the newest release by Joy Resolve, a lifestyle and homeware brand. The company’s name might ring a bell, because they are also the creators of the award-winning Barisieur, an alarm clock that is also a brewer. Yep, waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee on your nightstand is definitely a thing.
The Barisieur started Joy Resolve on a great journey, and the Groove Compact Grinder is their most recent launch that compliments their brand. The Groove Compact is a handheld electric grinder: compact and portable but with a wide range of grind settings. We got our hands on the Groove Compact and gave it a spin!

Let’s start with the look and feel. The Groove Compact sure has a great design: its shape (7 cm in diameter and 19 cm in height) fits nicely into your hand and it has a good weight to it (about 700 grams). The thick plastic jar is heavy duty but not bulky and the led circle that lights up when you grind or charge adds a colorful touch. Minimalistic but not boring, modern but not cold. So it’s nice to look at, but how does it work exactly?

The Groove Compact is a wireless, battery-powered electric coffee grinder. The 36mm burrs are conical and made of stainless steel with a triple bearing lock for precise grinding. The grinder features more than 40 different grind sizes, which allows for a very wide use from fine espresso grind to coarse french press grind. You can add up to 25 grams into the hopper and the grounds land neatly into the glass catcher. The grinder also stops automatically when it detects that there are no more beans in the hopper, which means you don’t have to keep an eye on it. You can charge the Groove Compact with the USB charging cable that you can plug into your laptop or any charging station- a single charge allows for multiple grind servings. This is all the info that you can find on the box and on the Joy Resolve website, but what was our experience using it?

The 40+ grind sizes are certainly impressive for such a compact device. We counted the clicks on the grinder and got more than 50 clicks on it! This means that the grinder would be great for someone who has several brewing methods at home and needs different grind sizes for each brewer. And the compact size of the burrs don’t compromise the grind. The grind is pretty consistent and you can also see and feel a difference in grind sizes. Below you can see a comparison of 4 grind sizes, ranging from about 5 clicks to 45 clicks.

Groove Compact - Grind Sizes

When we sifted the grounds through a Kruve sifter to check the consistency, we did find some fines. Fines are the smallest particles when you grind beans, and too many fines might indicate blunt burrs, burrs that are not well aligned or very small burrs. Design also matters, but larger burrs often give less fines. You can see the fines in the tray on the right in the picture below.

Groove Compact - Kruve Fines

So the grinder does allow for some fines, but they did not heavily impact the brewing results when we tested the Groove Compact for brewing a V60. Quality wise and price wise, the grinder seems to be a great device in its category.

Do make sure that all of the grounds land in the catcher, though. We noticed a little bit of retention, but that’s easily solved by gently tapping the grinder before you screw off the catcher. Tapping it helps in getting all the grams out that you initially put in the hopper, but it also prevents the grounds spilling next to the jar once you unscrew it.

Even though it’s an electric grinder, you can’t expect the speed of a full on electric grinder like a Baratza Encore or a Eureka Mignon, however. The Groove Compact grinds at the same speed at which you yourself would grind your beans manually, but without of course the actual manual effort of the grinding. So it’s not necessarily a speedy solution, but it does make brewing a fresh cup of coffee a lot easier and low maintenance.

We personally would not recommend using the Groove Compact for an espresso grind. For pulling great, consistent espressos you need a very precise grind from top notch burrs. If your preferred brewer is an espresso machine, we would advise you to invest in a heavy duty grinder that will last you years on end. We also felt that the Groove Compact was struggling just a little bit on the finest settings (which you would use for espressos). This is why the grinder feels more of a fit for slow coffees, which often need fine medium to coarse grinds. It’s also suitable for people who are leveling up their home barista game but don’t want to spend too much money

The compact shape makes the Groove Compact also a great “on the go grinder” to take with you on your travels. Being able to grind your coffee on demand when you’re out and about brings your coffee experience to a whole new level. Once it’s ground, coffee already loses 40% of its aroma within the first 30 minutes! So you understand why we’re quite excited to see there’s a portable yet high quality grinder on the market. When coffee lovers travel, they do tend to bring compact brewers like an Aeropress, V60 or maybe french press along with them, and all of these brewers pair perfectly with the Groove Compact.

So yes, we do feel that the Groove Compact is a win for the specialty coffee industry! The grinder was designed with the needs and expectations of modern home baristas in mind and it definitely does what it says on the box!
