We're always on the lookout for brewing gear to help make great coffee accessible at home and on the go. One of our coffee buyers, Tim Hill, came across the Porlex hand grinder a while back and mentioned it to Brian Ludviksen.
 
Before leading our customer support team, Brian was our long-time tech manager with a knack for putting gear through its paces to objectively evaluate performance. One of the key measurements of any coffee grinder is the consistency of particle size (to encourage even extraction). Tim and Brian are especially keen on the amount of torque on the ceramic burrs in the Porlex because of its resulting grind consistency.
 
Lightweight, stainless steel, and extremely portable, the Porlex grinder is perfect for home use and travel for any of the handcrafted coffee methods we recommend in our brewing guide.
 
Thanks,
Nathan
