As several other reviewers have said, there's quite an issue with static after grinding. Putting it in the freezer for ten minutes or so has helped quite a bit with that. Afterwards, I tap it on the counter-top a couple of times then open it over a small plate before tapping out any residue from the top section into the portable filter then add the contents of the grinder's cup.
I don't know if it came that way or is very easily scratched by ground coffee, but the acrylic part of the grinder has multiple, light scratches inside, not bad enough to crack/break.
I also like how this grinder doesn't take up very much storage space and is fairly easy to clean. Easy to use, too.
1. The tip of the handle that you are supposed to hold with your fingers and rotate the mechanism doesn't have spinning part! that means if you grind really fine, you have to apply more effort, and the tip gets traction with you fingers which really hurts! Really! so I take a paper towel to handle it, thus adding the missing spinning part.
2. It's next to impossible to grind for turkish coffee if you are a child or a small woman because it takes much effort! It's almost like a short gym workout! I gave it to my female friend and she told something like "Is that a joke?" They tell the the handle is long enough but this is just not true. The handle is too short and it doesn't supply enough leverage.
3. They could make the hopper to screw in, not just insert. Because if you are not careful enough it falls out getting all the grounds all over your kitchen's floor. That what happened to me. And you cannot just hold it with you pinky because you apply too much pressure to rotate the handle, which works like a leverage which in it's turn slowly evicts the container.
I believe people who designed this device have never actually used manual coffee grinders before but only know their theory about burrs and staff.
I wish I could return it but I have ground coffee with it and it's kinda used now.
Let's address the elephant in the room first. The retaining/grind adjustment nut doesn't look like the one in the official pictures. Another reviewer has suggested this means it's a fake, but I don't agree. The grinder is very solidly built, with well-machined burrs. If this thing is a fake, it's a really good one. My guess is that this is a second (or third) generation design. Looking at the pictures, I like this design better anyway. Simpler and less prone to failure. The nut gives good, solid, clicks when it's turned and holds the bottom burr in place beautifully. I can't really ask for more from it.
With that out of the way, let's talk about the grinder itself. It is a very well constructed grinder that is much heavier than you would expect for its size. The grind, so far, has been fantastic. I've only tried grinding for pourover/aeropress, but I do intend on trying with espresso and french press. I'll update this review when I do. It's a little harder to turn than my previous grinder, but it's so much faster. What used to take 3-5 minutes, now takes a little less than a minute. That said, I wish the turning knob was a little rounder. It digs into my hand a little while using it, but not really bad enough to take a star off.
If this grinder had a fatal flaw it would be size. I know many other people have said how small it was, but I was still picturing it bigger than it is. It's closer to the Porlex mini than it is to the full size Porlex. I've managed to get about 18 grams of light roasted grounds in the collection cup, but just barely. If you're only brewing one cup at a time, it's great. If you want to make coffee for more than one person, maybe look at something else. Then there's the static. Because this uses steel burrs instead of the ceramic ones on the cheaper grinders, it generates a lot of static while grinding. That's just one of the trade-offs for the more precise burrs that steel allows. Adding those two things together results in a potential mess whenever you pull the grounds cup off, be prepared for that. I'm looking into workarounds for both the size and the static issues, and will update if I find any.
Even though I wish it were a little bigger, I really like this grinder. You'll just have to decide whether the tradeoffs are worth it for you. As promised, here are the pros and cons.
Steel burrs give a more precise, even grind
Grinds 18 grams of coffee in no time flat
Small grounds cup
Steel burrs create more static
Turning knob digs in while grinding
Final Thoughts: If you want to grind a cup's worth of beans really fast and well, and can deal with a little static, get this. If you need more than one cup or static is a problem, maybe skip it.
