How do you grind your coffee using the Porlex Coffee Grinder?

Other Helpful Tips for Using Your Porlex Grinder:

  1. If you need to make an adjustment to your grind settings after tasting your coffee, make sure you’re making small changes. A little goes a long way with the Porlex Grinder
  2. You can make small adjustments to the grind setting (coarser or finer), or you can adjust your extraction time using the table above.
  3. For the best tasting coffee, grind your whole bean coffee right before you brew!
  4. We recommend leaving the chamber completely empty when you’re making an adjustment to the grind size.
