Product Description

Coffee Lovers, Take Your Brew to the Next Level by Using Freshly Ground Coffee Beans. Coffee Shops all over the world have known one of the secrets to making the best cup of coffee is to use freshly ground coffee beans. Making delicious coffee from freshly ground beans is now possible in your home by using Kuissential's Manual Burr Coffee Grinder. Coffee flavor is extremely dependent on the consistency of the coffee grind. A Manual Burr Coffee Grinder is the best way to achieve a uniform grind and get the best flavor possible.The manual grinding process also causes less heat and friction, which minimizes the loss of oils through evaporation. All adding to your coffee's flavor! Manual Coffee Grinders are also quieter and easier to clean. This Manual Grinder is easily adjustable to give you the desired grind size for your method of brewing from fine espresso to coarse french press. This Manual Coffee Grinder was designed with a Ceramic Burr because relative to steel it will last longer, absorb less heat, won't rust, and make less noise. Also, ceramic material does not alter flavor in any way, which ensures a fresh taste. This makes it a perfect option for a Home Grinder. The bottom portion of this coffee grinder doubles as a storage container for your leftover grind, and has a non-slip base that will stay steady during the grinding process. Thanks to customer feedback, this grinder now comes with a lid for the bean hopper to keep beans from jumping out or spilling while grinding. If you love coffee and want to take your home brewing to the next level, add this Manual Burr Coffee Grinder to your arsenal today! (Made from BPA-FREE components.)

A manual coffee grinder is a great tool for coffee lovers for several reasons. Most importantly you can get freshly ground coffee (more flavor) and because of the manual design a more uniform grind. Uniform grind size is important because it means everything will be brewed evenly.
This grinder by Cuissential has a nice design. It has good torque so it is not difficult to use. Also it is easy to clean.
It is very simple to adjust the grind size. All you have to do is remove the top screw, handle, and grind lock, then you turn the washer clockwise for a finer grind and counter-clockwise for a larger grind. Just don't loosen it too much or it will come off.

Here is a little guide::

-Coarse Grind - About the size of a particle of sand or larger. For use in a French Press or Percolator

-Medium Grind - Known is "general purpose" grind. This is the size of most store bought coffee and has the size similar to table salt. Used with regular coffee machines, flat bottom filters, or manual drip coffee.

-Fine Coffee Grind -This size is closer to fine pepper then to salt. This is the starting size for espresso coffee.

-Turkish Grind - the finest of all, similar to icing sugar. Used to make turkish coffee.

As a tip, when you are adjusting the grinder to find the right size, you can grind a small bit onto a piece of paper. After a few tries you will hit the exact size you want.
I hope this helps! Good luck...

I was frustrated by how slow this was, especially with larger beans. It turns out to be a copy of the Hario Coffee Hand Grinder Skerton, but the actual grinding mechanism has a design flaw, such that it takes twice as long to grind the same amount of coffee as the Hario. The prices are almost the same, so it doesn't make any sense to buy this instead of the Hario.

After being frustrated by how slow it is, I noticed the design flaw (described below) and bought the Hario. Before returning this one, I compared the two by setting them to the same grind (set with a boxboard spacer in the grinding mechanism), and then cranking the crank 200 revolutions and weighing the grounds I got from that. I got 25 g from the Cuissential, 50 g from the Hario.

The design flaw that I think explains how slow it is is this: There is a three-blade "propeller" just above the grinding mechanism, presumably to help guide the beans in. But the grinding blades have five channels. That means that only one of the channels in the grinding mechanism lines up well with the opening in the three-blade propeller. Two are about half blocked, one is only a little blocked, and one is completely blocked. If you have small beans, they might still get in the partly-blocked channels, but with big beans, you might only effectively use one of the five channels, or maybe two.

I should mention that their customer service rep was very friendly and responsive, even though he ultimately had no real solution other than courteously accepting the return and providing a refund.

I had a Capresso burr grinder, which works well till I tried to clean and tamper with the center screw. That changed the setting and I can never get it to grid coarse anymore. Besides, the residual oil trapped coffee @ base and make it hard to clean. I finally take a shot at manual one and love it so far.

Pro:
- Easy to clean, almost no residue
- Not gonna breakdown or stop working
- Good for those who likes to do French Press. It doesn't take much time to grind
- Small and easy to store

Con:
- Particle size is not as consitent as I expected, but acceptable.
- Will take quite a while for large amount of finer grinding.

Excellent grinder with absolutely no static charge build-up.

I had been using an electric burr grinder for my coffee for some time and had just about had it with the grounds leaping out of the plastic container. I had to wipe down my counter every day. The needless extra work coupled with the waste of my coffee It seemed all the grinders I looked at had plastic containers and they all had complaints of static electricity to some degree or another. I tried many fixes to reduce the effects, but found no joy.

Then I found this little gem.

I grind my grounds coarsely, so it being manual was not a deal breaker for me. If I used a fine grind I don't think this would be the grinder for me. But if I want powder I would just use a cheap blade grinder, anyway. The grind is not difficult, but it would be time consuming. It only takes about 20 seconds to grind enough for a french press or about two minutes for a twelve-cup pot of coffee.

The glass container is durable and heavy, and the cap fits on tight to save any left-over grounds for tomorrow. The mechanism comes apart easily to change the grind or wash the pieces. The manual says to wash after every use, but I find I can use it more often between washes without the gears getting gummy. Since it comes apart so completely cleaning is a snap.

Changing the grind entails removing the handle and moving the lock-washer up or down and then locking it in place before re installing the handle. The first couple times I used it I had tightened the handle up too much and then after grinding the additional torque had made it very difficult to dismantle. Now I don't tighten the handle so much and never have an issue.
