Summary This is the perfect companion for trips along with something like the AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker with Bonus 350 Micro Filters. You can sit and watch TV while you grind with this manual grinder. Now, keep in mind that this is a manual hand grinder and requires a little more effort than an electric model. Saw complaints along the line of taking too much time, but it goes without saying, a manual grinder will take longer and more effort. Since it doesn't run on electricity it has fewer parts to break. It will take about 2 minutes to grind enough coffee for 2 people. This grinder is also small, if you want something for more than 2 cups of coffee, don't buy this grinder.
Summary Again, the instructions are in Japanese, not English. But you still shouldn't have much of a problem figuring out how to use this. It is a nice little grinder that takes a little effort on your part, but then it is a manual grinder. You get about 50 grams of coffee grounds for 200 cranks on the handle. Not a bad trade-off. Great for use with a chemex or an aeropress coffee maker. works well for drip, French press, and other types of coffee makers too.
Summary Hand operated coffee mill is permanently attached to the glass jar making it difficult to empty. The Hario grinder instruction sheet is in Japanese, Not in English. Handy grinder for trips, dorm rooms, or to bring to your office. Great if you are into doing things the old fashioned way. Makes just enough for you to have fresh coffee as you go all through the day. Well worth the 2 or 3 minutes of hand grinding using this coffee mill.
