Although there are several components to the coffee grinder, they can easily be taken apart and put back together. The nut can be tightened for a finer grind (turkish, espresso, aeropress) or looser for one that is more course (cold brew, french press). No matter what type of texture is desired, the Porlex Hand Coffee Grinder can provide you with the exact grind you're looking for.

Convinced :)

I, too, found the perfect grind for my French press! This is my first manual grinder and others' reviews helped me to make this purchase. So, thank you! I own an electric Baratza for comparison and I am more than happy with the results. Like other reviewers, I appreciate the grinder's elegant, compact and plastic free design, the ease of use, and the range and quality of the grind.

Thank you for your review and for choosing the Porlex Tall Grinder ii. We appreciate your support and we hope to continue providing you with quality products in the future. Happy grinding!

It’s great

Grinder works great for our French Press course grind. The results have been better than ever.

Thank you for your feedback and happy grinding!

Excellent manual grinder

Just ground some beans for pour over coffee using my Kalita Wave. The beans were fairly easy to grind and it took less than a minute of grinding to produce enough for one cup of coffee. The beans ground very evenly on 20 clicks and the coffee tasted smooth and full of flavor. I will experiment further since this is my first time using a manual grinder. I am very happy with the Prolex Tall Grinder II. Excellent shipment to Hawaii and the package was received in perfect condition. Awesome product.

Thanks for the review! We're glad you're happy with the Prolex Tall Grinder II.

Porlex tall grinder ii

First off Frenchpresscoffee customer support was well beyond expectations. They called back after my call went to voicemail. They answered my Qurans had a great recommendation for this grinder over other models I was considering. I am enjoying the grinder. It does a very consistent fine medium grind for a Moka pot. A 6 cup Moka pot fill will easily fit in the grinder using about 2/3 capacity. Grind time for that is about a minute with not much effort. A rubber band keeps the handle with the grinder for storage and transporting. I would recommend this for Moka pot or areopress.

We're glad to hear that the Porlex tall grinder ii is performing well and that French Press Coffee customer support was so helpful.

Great Product

Perfect tool for small single coffee grinder

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

Absolutely Amazing

My electric grinder of 10 years bit the dust and left me without my morning java, so after a great deal of research I decided on this one. 10 years ago I upgrade from pre-ground coffee to grinding my own, and I thought that was amazing. However, this little grinder is a game changer. My coffee has never tasted this amazing. It's heavenly. I ground the exact same coffee I had in my other grinder, and there is no way to compare the taste.

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

Sturdy and lightweight

It's easy to set the fineness of the grind on the ceramic parts, and lightweight in your hands. I especially like how easy it is to take out the grinder parts to wash off the stale oils after a week or so of use. Simple, sturdy design!

So Far So Good!

We've only had the Porlex Tall II for about a week now, but have been very impressed with it so far. It is very strong and sturdy, and sits in your hand comfortably and securely. It looks good too! You get a good arm workout as you turn the handle to grind the beans, but it's not at all hard to do. We took a long time researching different brands, and quickly decided that we weren't going to buy something cheap that wouldn't last very long. This feels like it will last a very long time indeed.

The first time, I kept opening it up to see how much was still left to grind, but the second time I realized that it's easy to detect when there are no beans left in the chamber. You feel it. As we also bought the AeroPress Coffee Maker, we're using #4 setting (you click 4 times from the tightest setting which they call zero). We're still learning the different hacks for the AeroPress, so we're sure our coffee will only get better. It's definitely the best thing to do........grind your own beans! Good fun!

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

Tall Grinder

At home, I hand grind our coffee every morning using a grinder I purchased several years ago that has served us well. I had high expectations due to my current grinder...I was not disappointed.

The design and engineering are top self. Easy to adjust, easy to take apart, clean and reassemble. Compact size is a plus.

We now have an excellent mug of joe when on the road thanks to the Porlex II Manual Hand Grinder.

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


My son and I had been using one of the low end, inexpensive hand grinders. I began to dread grinding coffee. After research I choose the Porlex Tall. It was in my price range and I liked that it can easily be taken apart to clean. I now enjoy grinding coffee. This little tool gets the job done efficiently. I love hearing, feeling and smelling the beans crush. The shipping was fast. I am very satisfied.

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