  • Grinder for Aeropress and Moka pot?

    I am after a grinder that will do a decent job for an Aeropress and Moka pot. Can spend up to about $300 or am happy to look secondhand.

    Currently using a porlex grinder but having 4-5 cups a day it gets a little tedious and the handle has started flying off randomly which is bloody annoying.

    Dont need anything flash, just something that can be adjusted between the two different grind needs easily. I weigh my beans prior to use and will only be grinding as needed. Wanting to get away with the cheapest option possible without compromising too much on quality.

    Thoughts?

    I use the breville dose control pro for my non espresso needs. No complaints, very good buying at around $140. Does everything you will need.

      As above the breville smart grinder has quick grind adjustment and is easily referenced for grind setting repeatability. Also has a grind holder to make it mess free and has minimal retention.

      If you can get a new one for 140 I would grab it.

      Other option is a lido hand grinder, by the sound of it they grind quick and look like a high quality bit of gear. Not sure how the grind setting adjustment works though, maybe an owner will add their thoughts.

      Cheers

        How about an OE Lido 2? If you're happy with a hand grinder, this will take it to the next level and blow any Sunbeam or Breville into the weeds...

          +1. I have the Lido E-T. I use it with my Aeropress and my Handpresso. Easy to change grind settings. Easy to grind - much quicker and easier than most hand grinders.

              Yeah, I use a Lido 3 with both Aeropress (at work) and Moka Pot (for holidays). I upgraded from a Porlex, I think there is an improvement in the cup, especially the consistency and it is much more of a pleasure to use. Not the cheapest option but I reckon it's worth it.

                Hi Poena,
                I have recently purchased a Lido 2 and am loving it. I bought it mainly for pourover but have been using it for espresso, pourover and syphon and find the grind quality exceptional. I replaced a Hario Skerton with it and the difference in every area is staggering, really appreciate how much faster it grinds too.
                It is easy to adjust and simple to set at specific positions which you have found to work well for different brew methods.

                  Thats good feedback. The lido costs over $200 more so it's good to hear it is substantially better. I use a hario with an aeropress for the 3-4 times per year we go camping so for that frequency it does more than fine, certainly better than what everyone else is drinking around us.
