    Question about turkish coffee grind sizes/appropriate grinder

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if someone knew what the typical grind size is for a turkish coffee? *Ive been searching Google and have found sizes typically range from 100-200um and it would be great if someone could confirm this.

    Either way, Im interested in buying a high quality turkish coffee grinder for a research project Im beginning. *I need to grind coal (quite similar to coffee in many respects) to a reasonably consistent particle size similar to that of Turkish coffee. *The higher the throughput in a single batch the better, but consistency in grind size is the most important factor to me. *I must use a manual grinder as I need to avoid generating any significant amount of heat during the grinding process.

    When searching the only Turkish coffee grinder I can find is the Zassenhaus 175M. *I was wondering if anyone could suggest any other manual grinders to investigate?

    Thank you for your help :)

    Sorry, no idea about particle size but the Hario mini slim will do what looks like Turkish to me (based upon what Ive been served at Turkish restaurants) at a snails pace. Unfortunately most hand grinders arent too consistent as the shaft isnt well stabilised. Might be worth looking at a used commercial with new burrs... I havent detected any heat to the touch with mine at low volumes - Ive only done up to 50g though at a time.
