Are you a lover of both craft coffee and traveling? If you find yourself dreading diner coffee on the road, but don’t have a way of transporting your favorite at-home brewing methods, you may be interested in Orphan Espresso’s newest innovation: the Fixie Travel Coffee Grinder.  

 The Orphan Espresso Fixie Travel Grinder has almost all of the features you love from the Lido Hand Grinder, but with even more portability. This is truly the travel coffee grinder you’ve been waiting for. This Orphan grinder is the smallest, most lightweight high-quality burr grinder on the market right now. 

Grinders like the Lido 3 give us the ability to take our craft coffee on the road, but the grinder itself still has some limits that don’t always make it easy to travel with. The Orphan Espresso Fixie has solved those problems. 

You still get the same durability and strength as the Lido 3, as well as the same grind setting range. The Fixie is made with steel conical burrs that last years without any damage and give users the reassurance that their grinder is going to yield an accurate grind every time. 

The grind settings range from Turkish espresso to a coarse cold brew grind, but the Fixie has made the experience even easier. This hand grinder comes with three different “spacers” that lock the grinder in place to set the burrs at your preferred distance. These give you three basic settings, but you can use the four Teflon pieces for more precision in your grind size.

The Orphan Espresso Fixie Travel Coffee Grinder weighs less than 1 lb and is under 8 inches long. This small size makes it the perfect craft coffee travel companion and a great pairing with the Aeropress or the French Press. Take this and your favorite coffee on a road trip, a camping adventure, or any of your next travel adventures!


Extremely lightweight body

The size and weight of the Fixie Travel Grinder may be one of the best selling points for those who love to be on the go. In the past if you wanted to take a vacation, you had to prepare for mediocre coffee at a gas station to get your caffeine fix. 

Now with brewers like the Aeropress and burr grinders like the Orphan Fixie, you can have craft-quality coffee anytime, anywhere. At under 8 inches and weighing only 0.7 pounds, the Fixie is the smallest and lightest burr hand grinder you can find. 

Simple, “fixed” grind adjustment

The name, “Fixie” was inspired by a fixed-gear bike. Orphan Espresso is always looking for ways to make the grind adjustment process easier on hand grinders, and the Fixie is the simplest one yet. 

This manual coffee grinder comes with three separate disks, or “spacers” that lock into place. Each of these three disks can act as a setting, and Orphan states that you can use these for “Aeropress, Chemex, and French Press.” 

There is also the option to ensure a more precise grind by using one of the four Teflon pieces. According to Orphan Espresso, you can achieve 19 different grind settings with 0.1 mm precision using these combined methods. 

Steel conical burrs

When choosing a grinder for your on-the-go coffee experience, you always want to look for something with steel conical burrs because these are the strongest and longest lasting. 

Burr grinders are known to have far more grinding accuracy than blade grinders, which is why they are more expensive. If you ask any craft-coffee lover, they’ll assure you that the extra cost of a burr grinder is always worth your money. 

The Fixie is made with Etzinger conical burrs, which give it an added level of precision with a fine to medium grind.

Tyvek Travel Bag

The Tyvek Travel Bag is a sleek, modern carrying case for the Orphan Fixie that ships with every order. It is a sustainable material that is safe for the environment and for you.

The travel bag comes with a side pocket for the Fixie’s removable crank arm, so you’ll be able to have every single piece of the grinder in one place.

The Perfect Travel Grinder

This is the perfect travel grinder. Highest quality and weight only where it needs to be. Full-size, high quality burrs for a portable hand grinder. It's slightly more involved to adjust grind, than your stay-at-home grinder but not difficult, and worth it because that, along with the perfect material selections like carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum, etc., make this superlight and perfect for travel. Dial it in to your coffee and your travel brew method before you go, and you're all set with the best grind at the lightest weight for travel. Can't beat it if you use one coffee for your trip. Very happy with this product and with Igor and his wonderful coffee business.

Dear Jim! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com

Absolute gem. Very best in its niche.

Anecdotally I find this makes fewer fines and a richer, cleaner, more beautiful tasting cup than any other manual grinder I’ve used between those of my own and those of my friends over time. This includes those made by Porlex, Knock, and even other Orphan Espresso grinders of the Lido series. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of using anything made by Commandante, Kinu or OE’s Lido OG, so my comparisons are limited. But grinders like those and nearly all other serious manuals, weigh in in pounds rather than ounces. And while I can imagine the simplicity of the Fixie approaching crude to the tastes of some, this is written by a guy who drives a stick and writes with pen, albeit a very nice stick and a very nice pen, so take that.

Dear Michael! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com

Great grinder

I’m just getting to know this grinder but so far so good. Typical OE quality and engineering thoughtfulness. It is much smaller than I expected and grinds beautifully. I love the fixie principle. First order from FPC and have been very satisfied with that experience too!!

Dear J. Hood! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com

Daniel Piette
Great compact grinder

I recently came home from a three week trip where I carried a Hario grinder. While it was certainly better than using pre-ground means (plus, I roast my own beans so pre-grinding them would be anathema) I was not satisfied with the grind distribution. I was looking at other options for travel grinders and decided to take a chance on the Fixie. I am glad that I did. I've been using it over the past week and home, dialing it in for both pour-over and French Press use. It is easy to use, very compact, and delivers great, consistent grinds. Doug and Barb from OE have really created a great product, and FrenchPressCoffee was able to deliver it to me easily. Thanks.

Dear Daniel! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com

Sean Askins
Fixie Grinder

Very slick and easy to grind compared to my cheaper grinders I’ve had. It works great for my Aeropress being on the road.

Dear Sean! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com

Brian Myer
Perfect for lightweight, portable grinder

Not as good of a grind as my Commandante, but it would obviously never be practical to carry it along on a backpacking trip while the Fixie is custom made for that purpose. Easy to switch between the various grind sizes by exchanging the disks. Does include the Kevlar bag (at least mine did).

Dear Brian! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com

Richard Thompson
Love it!

Super light and great for travel but consistent grind quality that I use it at home often! Build quality is excellent.

Dear Richard! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com

Daniel Joseph Oconnor
Actually it's 4.6 stars

Yeah it's pretty nice. Looks great. Kinda hard to load. I don't know a bout the longevity of the rubber parts. I like that it's easy to dump the contents of the titanium jar without any sticking in the jar. Light weight. Looks cool. I can cram apptox. 55 grams into it Enuf for a 40 0z. pour over.

Dear Daniel! Thank you for your feedback. We are appreciate it very much. All the best, FrenchPressCoffee.com
