I have the worst luck with coffee grinders. The electric ones always fail me in some way! So in my fit of trying to find a better coffee grinder, I came across a few manual ones. Suspicious, I wanted to give this a try. So I was able to get one by Cartos and I was so surprised!

It's a pretty handy device which is wonderful in a power outage. All I need is one of those pour over things to go with it and I'll be set. It comes to you pretty much all put together. The only thing I needed to do was add the turning device that grinds it and that was very easy. I love that I could do this without batteries or anything at all. I was mostly surprised about how well these beans ground with this device.

The only hiccup I would say is that this is best suited for a single serving amount of coffee. Any more than that, you are likely to develop some pretty decent arm muscles as a result. It takes a lot of work to get the amount you need.

I do appreciate it comes with it's own carrying sack. I can imagine taking this on a trip or something and using this to grind beans that I purchase. Especially handy if I forget to get them ground or something. This is also fantastic for camping, I would say.

Purchase it now on Amazon for $12.95. 


I received the above item in exchange for my honest review.
