This small slim compact hand grinder is housed in stainless steel making it easier to clean and aesthetically pleasing. It comes in two different sizes, tall and mini. The main difference between the two is the physical size and the amount of coffee it can grind and hold at one time. The long handled arm provides for easy grinding and makes for shorter grinding times. The ceramic burrs will stay sharper for longer compared to steel burrs, they are also easy to clean and won’t rust. The grind size can vary from French Press all the way down to Espresso grind, and even as low as Turkish grind. The mini hand grinder is perfectly matched with the Aeropress as it fits snugly (without the handle attached) into the barrel of the Aeropress coffee maker!
