    Default Rhino Hand Grinder

    I have in my hands a grinder that outperforms the Porlex for a very similar price.

    The Rhino Hand Grinder - available from CoffeeHit - has been designed to address some of the flaws hand grinders have been known for.



    I'm currently putting it through its paces and it's ticking all the boxes

    Initial feedback;
    • Grinding feels stiffer (no play in nut)
    • Easier to grind (more solid and has a larger handle)
    • No wobble in the stem
    • Holds alt least 40g of beans (great for filter where higher doses are used))
    • Consistent grind size


    Feel free to ask any questions

    What do you look for in a hand grinder?

    Default Rhino Hand Grinder

    What's the static like in the catch cup
    What's the retention like in the burrs
    What are you using it for brewed presumably only ?
    Does it disassemble easily for traveling

    Easy to disassemble for travelling (and cleaning)
    Testing for brewed and espresso
    Retention is similar to the Porlex - very little grind retention. Conical ceramic burrs
    No static noticed so far

    What's your opinion on the longevity of the burrs, do they look like they will last.

    The burrs look to be well made. They are ceramic - so need to be treated with care (eg not dropped)

    Super simple
    Remove the (push fit) lid and tip in the beans

    After grinding, pull the bottom of the grinder apart (push fit again)

    That is a very cheap price. Can you comment on the grind-size variance? i.e. at coarser settings are you getting boulder and powder at the same time? Perhaps some pictures to illustrate?
    Despite the size and weight of the Hausgrind, I will forgo convenience every time for the grind quality and craftsmanship (that walnut!!!).

    Nice find Glenn!

    Does it fit inside an aeropress (for travelling)?

    {Not the whole thing, as I suspect it's too long, but even with a bit poking out it's useful...}

    Thanks.
