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.
