  • Handground grinder

    This Kickstarter newie is about to go into production and they have appointed an Aussie importer...

    It will be priced at less than the OE Lido range and the ergonomics look good....Conical burr set and they have put a heap of time into grind consistency

    We grabbed 10 from their crowdfunding campaign...

    Wow, the price is ample better than the Lido grinders! Here's hoping the ground quality is at least proportionally better for the cost over a Hario, as my Hario drives me crazy, but not Lido-$200-to-upgrade crazy (I've been using the Hario for cupping, and it's just not done my roasts any justice at all). Will be keeping an eye out on your website TC - international shipping on these grinders is painfully expensive.

      Yes- not sure what retail is going to be, but they should sit between the small ones and OE on price...

      I love the ergonomics and I think that another great alternative means we the coffee crazy get to win!

        I think that there must definitely be room for a ~$150 hand grinder. Good to see.

          I can't wait to receive mine :-) Brandon and Daniel are very committed to their project and I for one am not at all concerned about the time it took to get it to the high standard they aimed for. Many of the backers have been quite annoying on the threads out there. It could have been easier to just pump out another redressed Hario or Porlex but they stuck with their plan. The tests show impressive grind consistency for the price range. They put a lot of thought into durability also.

            Ordered one also

            Hopefully it offers well aligned burrs and a consistent grind.

            EDIT: Went for white

              I'm most looking forward to that natural arm movement. Lateral rotation and trying to keep my Hario pinned to the benchtop is a nightmare (and grazed knuckles...). This will be much easier.

                Hmmmm.... interesting way to use the Hario Readeral! ;-)

                I take the rubber 'foot' off and put it over the bean 'hopper' and grind away, no problem.

                But this new one looks super cool... I hope it delivers, looking forward to a road test.

                  Oh, I have a hario slim, not a skerton, so actually have a lid. The reason I keep it on the bench is to (try... And fail) to eliminate as much burr wobble as I can. Reality is, it's probably a pointless exercise, hence keen to upgrade to something a little nicely engineered.

                    Yep, I want one. So my Skerton has to go. I bought an older model Skerton and modded it with an OE bearing, a home made lid and a wing nut on top of the shaft for ease of use. Certainly turned it into a much more capable grinder, but the Handground looks too good not to try.

                      Noticed online these guys mention they are currently producing their first 500 of these. Anyone got any ideas on when they go into mass production after that and when those who haven't pre-ordered could expect availability?

                      These look well made and at a decent price point. May put an order in.

                        I'd doubt they'll make August....

                        Production + a few weeks of freight time and the numbers simply don't add up.

                        I would however expect we'll see some this year.

                        We'll have 9 available (nickel) from our crowdfunding support.

                          Worked out an approximate price yet Chris?

                            I regret no idea at this point Leroy,

                              Cool - any way we can put our name on one of these for when they arrive?
