Things you need to know about this product before buying
Things you need to know before buying: 1. This product is small, very small. It is about 7 inches tall and 2 inches wide at the base. I knew it was small before buying, but cannot say that I wasn't surprised when I opened the box to see just how small it is. 2. The instructions in the package come i...

It keeps grinding and grinding and grinding and grinding.......you get it.
I have owned this grinder since September of 2011 and it is without a doubt far more reliable than the other reviews and pictures lead you to believe. I have ground over 4500 tablespoons of coffee in this (1500+ separate grinds). I've attached a picture to show you that not all the shafts are bad an...

Good hand grinder or cheap electric grinder?
Another vote for the Timemore Chestnut C2. I previously had a Hario Mini Mill, and it brings out so much more flavor. It is also so much nicer to use and much faster. You can get it on Aliexpress for cheap, it's a chinese brand.

Great for the Aeropress - 5 plus years
I've had this grinder for almost 6 years and it has been a great companion to my Aeropress. The ceramic Burrs produce a very consistent grind with click stops on the adjustment that keeps the adjustment you make and allows experimentation (counting clicks back and forth) to arrive at the proper grin...

It has the same problem with any other manual burr grinder
So as far as manual burr grinders go, this is a pretty good one, especially for the money. Here's a breakdown of my pros and cons. Pros: - First and foremost the build quality feels pretty good. - It gives you a nice solid feel when you're grinding and I like that it has a clear top so you can see t...

Served us well for almost 4 years.
I purchased the original Hario slim in 2016 for $25. It recently died in January of 2020. It gives a significantly better grind than a blade coffee grinder and was a great bang for the buck. It took 160-180 turns to grind 18grams of coffee at 6 clicks (fine grind for Aeropress or Moka pot). I would ...

Good starter grinder
I ordered this because it was recommended by YouTube coffee expert James Hoffmann. It provides a much more consistent grind than the electric spinny blade spice grinders. It takes about 100 turns to get 25 grams for a French press, and 150 or so turns for a finer grind. I’m done by the time the wate...

AeroPress "Beginner" Grinder
The experience with the Hario Mini Mill is somewhat clunky, dreadful and takes a long time. The C2 on the other hand is weightier, and it's smooth as butter.
