Quality well above expectations. Somewhat inconsistent grind but overall an excellent hand grinder which will be hard to beat.
Positive Product Points
Well made. Good shape. Easy to hold. Fast. Good quality conical burr.
Negative Product Points
Play in burrs. Inconsistent grind.
I purchased this as a travel grinder. I have used 'box-and-draw' style hand grinders in the past and have always found the grind produced of poor quality or very time consuming. I wanted a manual grinder to remove voltage concerns and because I was unwilling to use a small blade 'grinder'.
This grinder is absolutely fine for press-pot or drip use. It feels very solid and is well above the mark in terms of quality. It feels very robust. I would disagree with various online reviewers assessments of 'consistent grind'. The grind is not consistent, particularly when grinding course for press-pot. I think this is because there is a noticeable degree of play between the top and bottom burr which is exasperated by the force reversals when operating the handle (which appears flimsy but feels very robust when in use). I think that the ease of use makes up for this inconsistency however.
I am certain that it would go fine enough for espresso but can't think of a situation where you would want an espresso machine and a hand grinder.
Overall - excellent quality and I don't thing you could do better for a travel grinder when using a press pot. That said, expect quite a lot of sludge due to the inconsistent grind.
My personal travel solution is to boil water in a pan, remove from heat and cool slightly, tip in coffee, stir and wait for three minutes then pour through a Bodum Coffee Solo without the insert (one-cip drip brewer) straight into a mug. This gives a very compact travel solution.
Very smooth from a retailer I had not used before. Delivered to hotel in three days.
