Product Description

Porlex is a Japanese company that specializes in food grinders. This grinder is very well made with a well thought out design. This is one of the most compact, useful grinders on the market. The silicon allows you to have a firm grip on the cylinder while grinding. The handle comes off and you are able to store it alongside of your grinder when you are not using it. The grinders inner spring helps keep the grind consistent even when grinder for coarse brewing. The stainless steel body makes the grinder indestructible and static free. The ceramic, conical burrs are easy to clean, will last long, and will remain rust-free.

Simple to use easy to clean.

The outside oontainer is very well made, the grinding is consistent and only takes a few minutes to grind enough beans for one or two cups of coffee.

Absolutely the best way to grind fresh roasted beans and brew coffee one cup at a time.

Works OK for fine grind, but not for coarse -- produces inconsistent grind. Very well made. Small -- fits inside the plunger of my AeroPress, which helps to keep it all in the AeroPress's pouch. Very comfortable to hold. Holds only one serving (about 2-3 measuring spoons), which takes about 160 cranks. Not bad at all, no need to keep opening and looking if you are done: you feel very well when there is no more resistence to cranking.

Just recently, I learned about the health benefits of having two cups of coffee a day. I wanted to turn my coffee drinking into a meditative process and focus on healing. For many reasons, I decided that I would drink coffee made with a French Press. When I began my research into coffee grinders, I quickly discovered an entire world. I found Eletric Burr Grinders starting at about $40.00 and up. I really wanted to hand grind my beans so I continued my research. I quickly discovered two reasonably priced hand grinders and was ready to buy either the Hario Skerton or Kyocera Ceramic Burr Hand Grinder (About $40). I then did a google search and found out the both the Hario Skerton and Kyocera were excellent for grinding coffee beans very fine (for expresso) but were not as good for Coarse Grinding ( Recommended for French Press). After some additional research I found the Porlex and discovered an excellent hand Coffee Grinder. The outside oontainer is very well made, the grinding is consistent and only takes a few minutes to grind enough beans for one or two cups of coffee. If you are grinding beans for more than two (12 ounce cups of Coffee) you might find this is not the best grinder.

The grinding is quick, quiet, and the resulting coffee is beyond excellent. I am very happy that I found this Hand Coffee Grinder and that is has enriched my coffee drinking experience.

Enjoy,

David

I bought this to relieve my office-mates of the noise pollution created by an electric grinder. It is much smaller than I expected (about 4 inches tall and an inch and a half wide). The stainless steel casing and top makes for a very sturdy feel. It has enough room for about 3-4 tablespoons of coffee beans in the top (probably enough for two 10oz cups of coffee). For one cup, I put about one and a half tablespoons in there and it takes about 50 seconds of medium intensity grinding to finish). The grinding process itself is fairly easy - no real workout here, just some low-level resistance. The adjustment screw clicks as you tighten or loosen it so it is easy to calculate how tight you want it for certain purposes - I stick to 8 clicks from the tightest position for my single-serve drip coffee maker.

This is it. This is the grinder you should buy if you frequently travel, backpack, go on hiking trips etc. Theres really nothing better unless you plan on keeping your grinder at home. If you can afford it, the OE Lido is a far better hand grinder but it costs a whopping 100 dollars more than this porlex mini. On top of it, the Lido has some glass and is more delicate than the porlex. If you don't backpack or travel much and can afford it, the Lido is the choice for you.

Either way, I LOVE MY PORLEX mini. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it produces far more "fines" than OE Lido or other ceramic burr grinders. If you need a grinder for espresso or moka though, the porlex does the job. If you need a grinder for drip coffee, I wouldn't buy the porlex mini.

For espresso: 2nd click from tightest setting.
For Moka: 3rd or 4th click from tightest setting (I'm using 4th because coffee comes out with less gunk, some people will prefer 5 or 6 if they like weaker coffee but 5 or 6 does not work for me)
For drip coffee: 6-8 depending on strength desired.

Good luck on your hand grinder purchase.

At first I thought this was a great little purchase. You can get a great grind depending on your preference, fine or course.

We use ours for a morning espresso, so choose the fine grade.

But this is where the good comments end.

After a little over 6 months usage, grinding about 2 shots per day, the Porlex Grinders issues start to reveal themselves.

The part where the handle attaches to the grinder is made of a soft metal which wears down over time. What this means is that the handle flies off while you are mid grind. In our case, to now grind 1 shot of coffee, the handle flies off during grinding about 10 times during the process, which has meant a doubling of the time taken to grind the coffee, in what was already an arduous process.

It is a poor design with cheap soft metal in a part that should be very strong. This sort of cheap metal I would expect in a product which is marketed as a cheapy, but Porlex is sold as a product for the high-end connoisseur who doesn't mind taking time for the right blend.

Clearly the number of 5 star reviews are made by those who have rated far too early, or have used this grinder for a short time.

This is not a product for the serious coffee consumer who plans on using it for extended use.

Isn't the idea after all of having a hand held grinder is that it is self reliant? Try making it out of materials that will last and stand the test of time.
