Porlex Tall hand grinder


Another fine hand grinder. For travelling, this is perfect - the hand crank comes off easily and the body is made from stainless steel so it can take a beating  The main difference between this and the well-known Porlex Mini is simply the height and therefore the capacity to hold ground coffee (about 2 x double shots of espresso grind).

The ceramic burrs will stay sharper longer than steel burrs, and stay cooler when you grind a lot of coffee. The grind size is adjustable from inside the ground coffee compartment, and ranges from very coarse french press, all the way through to turkish. The burr set is the same or very similar to that of the Kyocera grinder. The capacity for whole beans is 26 grams. That's enough for 1-2 cups. Of course you can refill and grind more for larger amounts. The flange underneath the burrs adjusts how fine or coarse your grinds will be. Turning it to the right will tighten it and create finer grinds. About 7 to 8 clicks from the tightest position will give you a medium grind. We recommend you experiment and discover what settings are best for your brewing needs.

As with most hand grinders, the bottom burr set is not fixed to the top set, and as such, there's some play at coarser grind settings. At coarser settings this will produce a much larger range of particle size, which isn't perfectly ideal for french press or pour over. But it's a small compromise, and the benefits of a compact and sturdy portable grinder outweigh the negatives.

I love my Porlex

This compact version of the Porlex Hand Grinder is the best friend of my Aeropress. The two are inseparable, because together, they are the ultimate travelling coffee brewing team.

Features: Consistant reliability of the grind quality, longer armed handle (compared to Hario Mini Mill) makes for shorter grind times, compact size makes it small enough to fit into the end of the Aeropress, build quality is top notch.
My only reservation is that because it is so compact, the versatility of the grinder is limited. It's really only good for making single cup serves (max 30g of lighter roasted coffee). Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

I love my Porlex. (Posted on 12/03/12)

Amazing grinder. Simple, uncomplicated, excellent design that works perfectly every time. Very little maintenance required.

I use my porlex with my Otto (Atomic style stove top) and Aeropress. I have taken it camping, on road trips and in hotels. At the moment I use it every day because I don't have room in my new kitchen for my compaks k3 and espresso machine, and I have to say I am not really missing them because the porlex and aeropress combo is so good.

I love it.

Enjoy (Posted on 27/06/12)

Porlex Hand Grinder - Tall

Another fine hand grinder. For travelling, this is perfect - the hand crank comes off easily and the body is made from stainless steel so it can take a beating. Taller than the well known Mini, and therefore holds more ground coffee.
Complete with a sample of Ministry Grounds roasted coffee

(Note: from time to time due to stock availability, we may choose to substitue the functionally identical unit from Rhinoware. All the internal components are identical with the Porlex, there are some small external deisgn differences. Support and warranty are the same.)
