Grinder: Hario Mini Mill
Posted Sat Sep 21, 2013, 5:16am Subject: Need a fast antique hand grinder for medium/coarse
Hiya! I'm looking for a hand grinder for my second work location - at home I have the Capresso Infinity for weekends and afternoons (it wakes my kids up on weekday mornings) and the Hario Mini Mill, and a Spong No 3 at my main work location. I do a pourover or an inverted Aeropress at work, but would happily do a French Press or even an infuser. In other words, I need a grinder capable of doing medium and coarse. I love how fast my Spong is, and would like to get a manual that's as fast (but doesn't cost a fortune on ebay - I bought my Spong for $1 plus shipping), but doesn't give me tons of dust and uneven piece like my Mini Mill. I'm grinding 20 grams or so at a time - which for medium on the Mini Mill takes like 3 or 4 minutes which is too long for me. I've read that people like the Peugeots for coarse but they have issues like very small drawers for the grounds. I can't do a wall-mounted one (or I'd buy an Arcade Crystal without the crystal). I'd prefer to spend under $50 for a used one on ebay. Pipe dream?
