The Porlex Tall Grinder II has ceramic burrs and a stainless steel housing, which not only makes it easy to clean, but very robust, and good for travelling/camping. It also produces less static than plastic. The conical ceramic burrs don't rust, are easy to clean and stay sharp for much longer than steel burrs.
The design has been updated from the previous version with:
It can grind coarse for French press, to medium fine for pour over, all the way to fine for espresso, and even Turkish coffee. And thanks to a easily accessible locking nut, is really easy to adjust
But the thing that really sets this apart from other hand grinders is the speed and ease of grind. This is down to a couple of features: a long steel handle that connects solidly to the grinder and the ability to hold the grinder steadily in one hand while turning the handle with the other. Have an AeroPress and like to have fresh ground, amazing coffee when you travel? This lovely little industrial looking grinder fits perfectly inside the AeroPress tube.
