Pros: I ABSOLUTELY love it! Not only is it affordable, it is a great quality product (feels heavy and stable. The ceramic burrs are very efficient! It takes me less than 20 secs to grind a single shot espresso. Although it is a little hard to grind it doesn't really bother me as it is REALLY efficient. It also makes your arms stronger and it gives me so much satisfaction to hand grind the beans vs grinding it electronically.
Cons: The only thing I didn't like about it that it was hard to figure out how to adjust the burrs i.e. there were no indication which direction to turn for the grind to be finer or coarser. It took me awhile to figure it out by trial and error. Also because there's no indication how many adjustments there are in total, i was pretty much left in the dark to keep turning the clicks until i hit the end. Hopefully they would fix this for future production.
Overall, i would purchase this again and would recommend this over using an electric burr grinder. Very happy purchase!

Something you can't tell from the description nor reviews is that the body of the grinder has a small magnet in it to hold the handle in place.
It's the same size of an AeroPress.
The burs are very stable.
Takes me about 30 seconds to fine grind about 10 grams of coffee.
The result is pretty consistent. I'd honestly have to go to something 4x or 6x more expensive to get better results.
The only downside is that there is no indication to let you know what the burr fineness-setting is... you just have to try and fail. Not a problem for me, as I always grind the same fineness, but worth noting for those using multiple brewing systems.
Brilliant grinder. Good job, Crushgrind!
In addition, it was pretty much impossible to dial in your grind size as there was no indicator. I'm happy I stumbled upon the CrushGrind as I was ready to buy a Hario Skerton, the seem go to grinder. Not only does the ChrushGrind have intervals in the same vein as the Hario, it actually has smaller intervals which allows you to really dial in the grind setting as you would see in an electric grinder.
The consistency is amazing and I was able to keep my grind setting in place only tweaking when necessary. One of the issues with hand grinders is the time it takes to grind down your beans but surprisingly, I could grind down 14g of beans in about 45 seconds which was much faster than the 3-4 mins average I spent on the cheaper grinder.
This grinder seems like the best kept secret in coffee going by the number reviews, youtube videos and articles I encountered when trying to find more information about it. I would definitely recommend this grinder twice over.
Also a little tip, use the plastic container to both measure and feed the beans into the grinder (using your hand as a funnel). That way, you will not lose any of your beans.
Everything I said before still stands about the grinder however there are two things to consider when purchasing this grinder.
- I've noticed for a espresso/moka grind, the grinder will require a lot more strength to grind than some other grinders. I'm a fairly strong guy and I can get by just about ok, but I realise not everyone will have the same fortune.
- When combined with the fact that there is no lid/cap on the grinder, you are more likely to shake the grinder about as you grind leading to the occasional bean spilling out. Sometimes first thing in the morning, I grind my coffee beans over the sink just to catch the 2-3 beans that spill out.
Aside from these two points, I love the grind quality and consistency that this grinder delivers. I feel for the price, it is still a solid purchase.
After researching other hand grinders under the £100 mark, I went for this grinder in particular as the stand out features to me were:
- Faster grind speed (For a given grind size, similarly priced grinders usually took around 4-5 minutes whereas this grinder takes under 1 minute)
- More grind size adjustments (Similarly priced grinders have stepless grinders which usually loosened over time, as they lacked something as simple as a nut on the end. This grinder offers 30+ reassuringly stiff steps to choose from ranging between turkish and french press - that being said if you were looking for something to dial in for espresso, you might get lucky with this grinder but really you should be looking at something above the £100 mark)
- Larger canonical burrs (Most grinders in this price range are ceramic conical burrs, this grinder isn't an exception in that respect but the burrs themselves are larger than most. This delivers the speed you'll love.
Aside from those three main features, the cherry on the top is how the handle secures itself to the grinder for easy storing/carrying. The magnetic attachment and the secure fit into the handle knob definitely feels premium.
I doubt you will regret this purchase, especially for the price.
A bit on the pricier side but it does feel very solid and make a very consistent grind!
Bought from Amazon Warehouse stating the condition was "Acceptable" but appeared to be brand new.
