Handground Grinder


Every coffee bean has hundreds of flavors and aromatics locked inside. Handground’s goal is to make it easy for anyone to achieve a consistent grind and release the full flavor potential in every cup you brew. Inspired by a Performance Camera Lens. It takes precision focus to brew a brilliant cup of coffee. They drew inspiration from the focus ring on a camera lens to make choosing a coarseness level simple. Twist the numbered ring to choose from 15 different coarseness settings. Each setting raises or lowers the conical ceramic burr mill by 165 microns. Achieve a Consistent Grind, Every Time. At the heart of Handground is a 40mm ceramic burr mill that was designed for the optimal balance between torque and speed. The stainless steel axle that drives the burr is mounted in three locations to eliminate burr wobble and create a consistent grind.

Lock And Load
The hopper opens extra wide so loading up to 60 grams of coffee is a breeze. The top locks on with a quarter twist to prevent beans from flying out while grinding. If there isn't a scale available, each measurement mark on the side of the hopper represents ~10 grams of beans.

Manual Made Easy
Handground is the first portable manual coffee grinder with a side mounted handle. Placing the handle on the side allows for a more natural motion and the ability to place your opposite hand on top of the grinder for stabilization. The handle is made from solid aluminum and complimented by a beautiful pakka wood knob.

Balanced Speed & Effort

At the heart of Handground is a 40mm conical ceramic burr mill that crushes coffee beans into an even particle size. The geometry of the burr is fine tuned to balance the speed which it grinds and the torque required to turn the handle. The result is that grinding takes just the right amount of effort in the right amount of time.

Consistent Grind Every Time
Running down the center of Handground is a stainless steel axle that drives the burr mill. The axle is mounted on metal bushings in three locations to keep it stable while grinding and eliminate burr wobble. Each axle is milled on a 5 axis CNC that maintains tolerances of 0.004 inches. The combination of added stability and razor thin tolerances allows Handground to achieve a consistent grind, every time.

Grip While You Grind
As coffee grounds exit the burr mill they drop into the glass catcher at the base of Handground. An unsung hero of Handground’s ease of use is a grip pad on the bottom that forms a strong connection with smooth countertops. The extra grip tremendously reduces the strength required to hold the grinder steady while grinding. 

Simple To Clean
It takes just seconds to disassemble Handground for cleaning. Simply turn the steel thumb nut below the burr and the inner burr mill slides out. From there you can clean the ceramic burrs of any coffee residue with a brush or warm water, no tools required.

        Not a precision grinder

        Unfortunately can only be used for coarse grinds. There's too much space between the burrs to produce a fine grind, even at setting 1. They provide two spacers to help with that, but they're not enough to bridge the gap. Contacted support, but they're out of additional spacers until next year. I need to buy another grinder for espressos.

        Perfect Handgrinder

        Works perfectly, easy to use and even looks great on the counter.

        4.5 Star Product.

        After using the Handground Grinder for more than 100 times, I can say that I am a fan of this product. I was disappointed with the product initially because something in the hand crank broke and it took some time for the manufacturer to send me a new replacement part.

        Coffeeaddicts took care of the entire warranty process for me and that was greatly appreciated.

        Wooden crank knob.
        The threading for tightening/loosening the top and grind catcher is smooth.
        Large grind catcher for those who drink lots of coffee.
        16 settings for grind size.
        Sticky silicone bottom is great and very easy to clean when it loses it's tackiness.

        Larger grind settings (4 and up) will cause the grinder to get stuck quiet often (do not try to power through, you will most likely great the crank handle). If your grinder gets stuck, reverse the crank a few times and try again.
        Harder beans may require more care when grinding, they seem to get stuck more often than softer beans.

        Final thoughts:
        I can't recommend this product to everyone out there. But for those who like to take extra time and enjoy the process of making coffee, I think you will enjoy the Handground Grinder.
