New Improved Ergonomic Design: This Manual Coffee Grinder is easier to hold, easier to use and more portable than previous models and grinds to perfection. Lockable bean compartments prevent beans from spilling. The handle screws into place, and won't slip off, like clip on handles. Both the body and handle are made of strong stainless steel, for maximum durability. Due to the unique shape, the handle turns the conical burr easier than previous rounded models. Get a custom grind for Aeropress, French press or other coffee makers, with the adjustable grind setting. It can be disassembled and cleaned in seconds with the included brush and easy to follow cleaning guide. And we include a carry bag to avoid scratching. The handle folds down, so it's easy to tuck in a work bag or backpack.

  • New rounded triangle design
  • Easier to hold and turn handle
  • Durable stainless steel body, handle and knob

IMPORTANT PRODUCT NOTE:

1) There is an Amazon review apparent for this product that makes reference to a previous product price of $10. Please note, this review; is from the USA and is quoted in USD. It also refers to a special promotion price under an Amazon Giveaway competition, rather than a general offer.

2) Like most portable manual grinders, this device is;

  • NOT IDEAL for extra fine (flour level) grinds sometimes used for spices and Turkish coffee (for which we recommend a high quality electric grinder). It is very suitable however for fine, medium or coarse grinding for AeroPress, French press and other portable coffee makers.
  • MOST SUITED to grinding coffee for 1-2 people at a time. For large groups, we recommend a high quality electric burr grinder instead.

    How long does it take to grind a shot?
    Had an experience where mate bought a manual grinder (albeit cheaper looking than this) which took an absolutely ridiculous amount of time to grind. We even attached it to a cordless drill and couldn’t get it to grind properly.

      It takes a while to do it by hand. I have one like this from ebay, the top section opens up and the shaft for the grinder is exposed. I just stick an electric drill on it and grind up enough for a day or two. Cheaper than buying an electric grinder for $100.

    Hi John, Thanks for the message.
    It takes a while to be honest, like all manual hand coffee grinders. For one shot finely ground, I'd suggest 30sec to 1 minute of turning the handle (although it may seem like more than that while you're doing it). I wouldn't recommend connecting a drill.
    This particular model has the advantage of being shaped to be easier to turn, but still it takes some patience. You may want to look at high quality electric grinders if you want to eliminate the time taken.

    Kind regards, Vagabeans.

    Why can't u have a gearing system to make the turning more efficient????

      Thanks for the suggestion Dabell. Certainly something to consider for the future.
      Kind regards, Vagabeans.

    I use my Porlex mini grinder daily at home. I grind while waiting for hot water. Main reason I use it is I can take it apart and clean everything, which can't be done on an electric grinder.

    •  

      Had a capresso infinity for years and after each use I flushed it with hot water. Never had a problem with rust or anything affecting it's electrical components.

      I've had a manual burr grinder before, more trouble than they are worth imo.

      •  

        I just don't like the idea of old coffee bean oil, which can't be simply flushed away.

      •  

        Yes. Thanks for the insight. Manual grinders take a bit of work to turn and grind the coffee, particularly where you're making coffee for more than one person. They certainly won't take the place of electric grinders for large groups. But handy during travel or at the office (as they are quiet and not messy), or as a second grinder if you want to try different beans from time to time without emptying main grinder or for a late night decaf.

        All the best.

  •  

    Hi Nfr, Yes, cleaning is a big task on an electric grinder. Like the Porlex (and most other manual grinders) this model is easily totally taken apart, which is recommended every 20 uses or so, to maintain the best flavour.

    Kind regards, Vagabeans.

  •  

    Ordered one.
    Been looking for a basic grinder to try on some Aldi beans for my cold brew :)

  •  

    Great to hear. Thanks for your order. Let me know how you go.
    Kind regards, Vagabeans.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Stainless-Steel-Manual-Triangle-... $17.33 which might be cheaper if you don't have Prime for free shipping.

    ps. When you remove the top section to add coffee beans the shaft is exposed, you can attach an electric drill and grind quickly if you want since manual grinding takes quite a long time.

  •  

    Hi there. Thanks for the suggestion. I wouldn't recommend the electric grinder attachment though as the frame isn't designed for it. Better going for an electric grinder.

  •  

    I purchased something very similar to this and was good because I thought that I would save electricity and promote a little bit of exercise in the morning. The unit lasted about 90 grinds and the plastic mount which connected the spinning shaft to the ceramic bur split and now no longer works. I've tried glueing the bur back but keeps breaking off at the plastic mount.

  •  

    Hi Jack, Sorry to hear about the problems with your previous grinder. Not sure on the design quality from your manufacturer, but it shouldn't break after 90 grinds. This model comes with a 1 year guarantee.

    Kind regards, Vagabeans.

    I saw the picture and was thinking - Oh, God. What have the toothbrush companies come up with this time?

  •  

    Haha. Nice one Pete. Looking at the image again, I can see why you may have thought that.
