Product Description

Color: Red

For everyone who makes espresso coffee at home, Grindenstein solves the extremely messy problem of removing the used grinds from your espresso machine's portafilter or group handle. Forget trying to wash oily grinds down the sink or having to put your hand inside a filthy garbage can -just turn your portafilter upside down over your Grindenstein, tap tap, and you're done - you have an empty portafilter. Grindenstein has a patented unbreakable design and its compact height allows you to store it on your espresso machine's drip tray when not in use so it doesn't take up precious counter space. Easily cleaned in the top rack of the dishwasher, each Grindenstein also comes with a great booklet filled with ideas on how to recycle the collected coffee grinds into a fantastic organic fertilizer for your garden.

Looks nice, solid construction, easy to clean.
Sundadar
Stands very firm on the counter -Rubber coated knock bar works well to dampen the sound -Knock very firmly secured to the knockbox with the rubber sheath around it.
S. Dang
I like how easy it is to clean, just empty the grounds, run a little water in it and you're done.

I wish I hadn't waited so long to get this knockbox.

Compact and well-designed, the Grindenstein is a nice blend of form and function.

It fits conveniently under your espresso machine's group head when not in use, preserving valuable counter space.

Functionally, I was worried that it might be too small: not so.

I find it to be the ideal size for home use. Pucks from my 58mm portafilter fall perfectly into the bin.

While I do wish the bar were removable for cleaning and/or replacement, that is a minor quibble.

My only real concern? The $30 price -- while competitive with metal and wood knockboxes -- borders on absurd for a tiny receptacle made of plastic.

Given the high quality of its design and execution, though, I still consider this knockbox one of the better additions I've made to my espresso workflow.

The Grindenstein merits serious consideration for any design-conscious home espresso lover concerned with preserving counter space.

UPDATE FROM SEPT 2011:

Well, apparently, my only reservation about the Grindenstein has been removed: I see that the price has dropped by 50% since I wrote my initial review, to just $15. At that price, it is a flat-out bargain.

Seven months of regular use have not diminished my appreciation for its design and utility. I am still very happy with it. The bar has proven extremely durable: no dents or gouges from striking it. This little knock box definitely deserves a 5-star rating!

UPDATE FROM APRIL 2013:

I am still loving this knock box! It has stood up admirably to years of regular use. My concern about the bar being non-removable has proved unfounded. I can recommend this knockbox unreservedly.

This is a good knock box if there is only one person in the house drinking espresso. Perfect for someone like myself who only has a double shot every morning. It holds about 8 double shot "pucks" comfortably. The color in this picture is accurate. The red definately stands out on the counter!

It's just what we needed. After a major bill to a plumber who told us that coffee grounds collect like sand and clog pipes, we decided that $30 for a knock box was money well invested.

As many have said, the box is too small for commercial use but it's perfect for home and it even fits under the pour spout on the espresso machine for storage. The rubber feet and squat design hold it steady on the counter. The bar is wide, sturdy and rubber coated so it's not likely to dent your filter unit. And the low cut front edge insures that you don't accidentally hit the handle or your finger on the edge.

I think $30 is too high of a mark-up, but nothing cheaper looked nearly as functional. If ours was stolen by a coffee loving burglar (I don't expect it will break) I would buy another immediately.

Update June 2014: Five+ years after purchase we still use it every day and it shows no signs of failing any time soon. Very happy with the purchase.

I wanted something compact, and didn't like the larger ones that look like an ice bucket. When I opened the Amazon box, and saw just the box this was in, I thought it might be too small. Thought about exchanging it for a larger one, but figured I'd give it a try first. It is just the right size. I make about 3 espressos a day, and, have to empty this every other day. No big deal to me. I'm not that lazy. It also works as a nice tamping box for my portafilter. I have a Breville Barista Express, so, I imagine it would be the same for any Breville portafilter. In the end, I have no regrets with this purchase.

Our older son and daughter-in-law gave me a Breville Barista Express espresso machine for Father's Day 2012. One thing required for this operation is a knock-box for extracting the compressed coffee-grounds puck from the portafilter after shots have been drawn. We have a small bar area in a short hallway leading from the front entryway to the family room. It has a small sink and beside it an area only about two inches wider on each side than the espresso machine. It makes a nice and convenient area for the new machine and the bar had never been used for anything but a catch-all for stuff in hand when entering from the garage during 17 years we have lived here. I looked at the Breville knock-box which has a classy appearance but it is way-too-big for our tiny area. We ordered this Dreamfarm Grindenstein 4 inch knock-box in silver gray color from Amazon. It fits the area, does the job and cleans up nicely. My original concern was that it might be too small in diameter to accept "knocking" without splattering coffee grounds all over the place. That's not a problem considering the size of the Breville portafilter. Although our usual evening routine is two lattes for the two of us, I feel confident that it would handle a half-dozen or more pucks for a larger crowd with no problem. All-in-all a really good and inexpensive purchase.

I can't think of anything else I would want in a knock box: the material is durable; it is easily washed (just rinsing does the trick, although it is machine washable); the knock bar is tough but soft. An advantage to the black color is that it doesn't show the coffee remnants. Some reviewers have commented on the small size. I don't find it too small at all: I've had as many as 6 double shot pucks in it and probably could pile in more. You might have to give it a little shake to settle the pucks in the bottom before plunking another in. One can store this nicely on the espresso machine under the brew group, so it takes up NO counter space when not in use. As an added little bonus, the packaging of this product was great: minimalist and recycled and tasteful. I've coveted a knock box for years and am happy I finally indulged in this one.
