We've been using this hand grinder for about a year and love it more and more all the time. At first we found it somewhat annoying because it seemed to take forever to grind the morning coffee, but now we find that it's a great reminder to sloooow down a little - and honestly, it really only takes a minute. But it's become somewhat of a morning meditation. There aren't any real instructions that come with it, so it took me a frustrating half an hour to figure out how to set the grind size. I thought it might be nice to share what I learned to save others the annoyance, so I got out my video camera this morning and put together this product overview along with instructions on setting the grind size.
PS - It always makes my day to know that people find these reviews helpful. If you'd also like to ask a question or leave a comment I usually respond the same day, so if you have a question or comment (even if it's just to say, Hi!") feel free to post it below.
I'm mainly using this to make slightly coarser grinds for an Aeropress and cafetiere and it gives reliable, reproducible results. These are fairly forgiving coffee-making methods which suits me. I don't dabble in the exacting science of espresso making, but I don't think it'd go fine enough, and probably isn't consistent enough. For really coarse grinds, I've heard that the lack of support at the bottom end of the grinder is an issue, and I'll update when I dabble in pour-over coffee later this year. Moka is also on the cards.
In use it's strangely satisfying and therapeutic. You have to really hold the grinder down firmly and turn the handle smoothly if you don't want it walking around your table, and it adds a whole tactile ritual to the process which probably makes the coffee taste better afterwards. You can actually tell when beans are getting stale as they feel less brittle as you crank the handle. It's not overly time consuming: I can grind a scoop of beans for Aeropress, or two small scoops for a cafetiere, in about two minutes without particularly rushing. (It took me about three minutes to begin with.) It worked its way into my usually-hectic morning ritual without much bother.
The whole machine is really nicely designed. Its hourglass shape is easy to grip and looks pleasing on the shelf, the glass comes up with a brilliant shine when it's rinsed off while lessing the coffee grounds glide off, and the handle is elegant and comfortable to hold. It's easy to disassemble and clean, with every part of the burr in easy reach for wiping off. (I do this every time I change beans, maybe once a week depending on how much I'm drinking.)
One oversight: you will find that the nut holding the handle on works its way loose. It's held on by friction between the metal parts alone and that's not enough to stop it turning. I got a 6mm rubber washer and put it underneath and the problem disappeared.
Finally, how do you consistently set the grind size? The advice online is to hold the burr up into the grinder, then spin the setting nut down until it just touches the base. Eye a point in the grinder body such as one of the "bars" holding the central shaft, and then turn the nut so that a certain number of notches in the nut pass that point. There are six notches, so one notch is a sixth of a complete turn of the nut. I use two to four notches for cafetiere and Aeropress, adjusting to taste each time I change beans.
So if, like me, you're thinking of getting into grinding your own coffee for freshness, definitely give this a look. It fills its niche well.
I want to like the grinder and so to fix the problem I bought a 3D-printed stabilising bracket. It wasn't easy to install and it makes cleaning the grinder more difficult, but now I can produce much more consistent grinds and enjoy a smooth full-bodied coffee every single morning - black, no sugar.
Overall, I can't recommend this grinder, because it needs something extra that isn't cheap and isn't straightforward to install. Obviously looking at the overall reviews your average coffee drinker doesn't care (or notice?), so you might be fine with the grind. Although if I was happy with the grind of the Hario Skerton, I'd probably be just as happy with an electric blade grinder. The blades scorch the beans, increasing bitterness and reducing the full-bodied aroma, but if the Hario Skerton grinds them so inconsistently as to have similar results, then why buy a burr hand grinder?
