- 18 manual grind settings
- Convenient, portable, easy to use
- Can grind fresh coffee every day so you can have fresh coffee for your French press or other coffee makers
- Ceramic burrs make it built to last
- Consistent grinding means you know your coffee will be good every day
The grind selector is built into the grinder and has over 18 manual grind settings to ensure you have complete control over how coarse or fine you want your coffee to be. The best part is each setting does the same job every day so you can be sure your grounds are consistently even and ready to be brewed.
The hand crank is removable and makes the grinder about 90% less noisy than traditional coffee grinders. There are also no batteries, power, or cords that you have to deal with. The low noise and the no battery features make it really great for traveling or using in your office.
The grinder only dispenses the amount you grind and can be tailored to fit how much you want to use. This means you won’t waste any grounds or fresh coffee.
The grinds can be as fine or as coarse as you prefer and can be used with any coffee maker or machine. The most commonly used machines with this grinder are the AeroPress, a French press, or a pour-over coffee maker. All are perfect to be used with this grinder and will make you a perfect cup of coffee.
JavaPresse also makes Japanese cookware out of Ceramic Burrs, and they use the same great material for this coffee grinder. All the grinders go through a 3-step inspection process so you can be sure they are completely safe and ready to be used. The ceramic burrs are meant to last about 5 times longer than stainless steel burrs.
The ceramic was also created with a patented professional-grade ceramic conical burr. This is what makes the grinding so efficient and reliable. The grinder also comes with a warranty and a complete money-back guarantee if you don’t like the way the grinder performs.
The grinder only weighs 9.4 ounces, another reason why it is so portable and easy to use. Since it is a manual grinder, it does cause some more effort and control to use. Other automatic grinders just have a simple grinder you need to push and then you’ll be ready to go. This manual grinder will cause you to put some more work into it. However, since you are grinding it by hand, you will be able to make it more consistent and to your liking.
JavaPresse is also very well-known for its customer service. If you have any problems with the grinder, don’t hesitate to contact them. The product comes with a warranty and a 10% money-back guarantee.
They usually respond to emails and inquiries in one day or less and are always ready to address the problem. If any part of the grinder doesn’t seem to be performing well or breaks easy, contact them right away.
