  • Rhinowares compact hand grinder for AeroPress

    Rhinowares have produced a new hand grinder.

    The clever bit is that is includes an adaptor to allow for grind straight into an AeroPress. Clever stuff.

    ETA mid-late December and we have them available for preorder

    Looks like a great idea, sometimes it is the little things...
    As a Newbie, it seems everyone leans heavily to the Porlex portable grinder. Is the Rhinoware grinder similar in grind quality? Thanks

      Yes Cd,

      Burr sets are interchangable. Same, same- as they say....

          Same same but different is what they really say. As all things you get what you pay for. Chinese copy versus Japanese geniune, easy decision. Grind quality definately not the same.

            Have you tried them side by side or...?

              ....or do you have an undisclosed interest in one of the brands?

                Hey Chris,

                I have a porlex mini and the metal cutout on the handle and the spindle itself has worn out quite a bit.

                Can you tell me if the rhinowares is pretty much the same quality of material?

                I'd also be interested to know if it's a pentagonal spindle or hexagonal. I'd like to sometimes use a small power screwdriver to save a bit of effort but not willing to risk it on a pentagonal spindle as the material already seems soft!

                Cheers,
                Nic

                  I have the same issue, quite annoying.

                    When I had one, I used to put a blob of blu tak on there, usually held long enough to get through 16g or so for aeropress.

                      Hello Nic,

                      The Rhinowares handle is designed not to fall off in use. I'll can confirm that it's hexagonal.

                      For mine, if you want a motorised grinder, buy one. Hand grinders are designed to be hand powered. Their internals are not produced with the intention of being drill powered.

                      Chris

                        I bought one last week from Talk_Coffee and it is designed nicely to use with the Aeropress. As per the pictures it does fit snugly inside the Aeropress for travel with the Aeropress assembled. Also, the adaptor is a slight press fit into the Aeropress and grinder to hold together well when grinding, didn't think it would be that nice a fit, nice touch. It is a little noisier than I expected, not having used hand grinders, but obviously not noisey like an electric grinder.

                        Also, I use to grind from my espresso electric grinder in the morning at home to take to work for the Aeropress and thought I would only get a slight improvement on manual brew system, but definitely is better grinding right before brewing. It was more of an improvement than I was expecting.
