Gives the best grinds
I just started using it this weekend...I'll never want to go back to pre-ground coffee. My go-to is French Roast, but even a medium blend is given flavor by this grinder. Thks Igor
Good for one or two cups. Very slow to grind more coffee and not uniform results.
My grinder does not produce grounds of even approximately equal size. At coarse setting some grounds are five or six times larger than others.
Product works as advertised. I have no complaints
I am very impressed by Hario's grinder! It is strong and grinds evenly, at least at the espresso setting that I always use. I actually love taking that couple of minutes for manually grinding - I find it relaxing, though I understand that others may find it boring. I got a Chinese copy of it from one of those mail shops, and it is amazingly similar, both in shape and in quality, for a fraction of the price... I still use my Hario, though, and will use the Chinese one for spares if needed (I'm always concerned that the glass jar will eventually fall off clumsy hands). All in all, Hario gets a 10/10 from me.
The product is stylish and appears to provides a consistent grind. However, I have a few issues that prevent me rating it more than a 3. The most important issue is finding the correct grind setting. It took several attempts to find the correct pour over grind size thereby wasting coffee. Now that I have the correct grind I'm concerned what will happen after I disassemble to clean it or decide to change grind for French Press. There is no way to mark where the grind should be for various brew methods. I have an electric ceramic grinder but it is noisy so I purchased this hoping it wouldn't be as noisy and although it is less noisy it's not as quiet as I had hoped. My final issue is where to store the grind handle and burr assembly when using the bowl to store leftover ground coffee.
