Positive Product Points

Excellent Grind. Great for power outages when all you have is fire for boiling water!

Negative Product Points

Makes grinding a very laborious process. A little hard to adjust the grind as it involves unscrewing the handle and adjusting teeth to raise and lower the burr.

Detailed Commentary

I use this daily to make coffee at work where we can't have electrical appliances and this allows me to avoid the vomitrocious coffee produced by the Flavia system. I brew through a Hario ceramic drip funnel that awesomely fits Chemex filters.

The burr is very nice. Seems as well made or better than my Barzata grinders. It is a little to easy to set the thing up where the burr grinds itself when you turn it, but if you are careful you can get it just right.

What would make this thing a lot nicer is is if it had some form of transmission to make the burr rotate faster than you turn the crank.

Buying Experience

The management baristas at Joe Coffee are fantastically nice and helpful.
