I have been looking for a grinder for the last 6 months to allow me to make great coffee away from home. My home setup is a Rocket R58 and Mazzer Royal which is a beast of a grinder and produces fantastic consistent coffee. When its just me and I don’t feel like waiting for the Rocket I fall back to my Aeropress which again makes fantastic coffee.
Three grinders were on the radar KInu M47, Comandante C40 and Feld 47. The Kinu was at the top of the list but couldn’t justify the cost new or 2nd hand (£230+). The C40 looked a good option but I was looking for something that was well engineered. The C40 looked a bit plasticky to be honest. The Feld 47 looked perfect but there were many comments online which talked about poor customer service and issues with burr wobble. Obviously, a combination of the two problems would be a nightmare if I happened to get a duff one. Didn’t seem to be much online about the Feld 47 ….
Any way long story short I decided to take a punt and order a Feld 47 Travel direct from the MBK website. It looked well engineered and I was supporting a small UK Business.
Ordered on the Sunday night got a sales confirmation immediately, website was a bit flaky with a blank page after ordering. Didn’t receive any more info by Wednesday so I dropped Peter an email. Within 15 minutes I received a dispatch confirmation and I received it Thursday the next day.
The Feld47 was packed nicely and came in a lovely Knock tube. Taking it out of the tube I was presented with a beautifully engineered product, oozes quality. Nice weight, very, very impressed. No burr wobble and produces grinded coffee equivalent to the Royal.
Initially I had it set to 1.2 and that produced coffee like talc, perfect for Turkish. Adjusted to 2.3 and that was about right now for the Aeropress, still dialling it in. It takes about a minute to leisurely grind 18 grams of coffee which I didn’t think was bad. Grinding is a lovely smooth action however the grinder is heavy so resting it on your leg is the comfortable option. It will grind any type of coffee with ease. Easy to setup and dial in.
So all in all I am VERY pleased with the Feld 47. Ordering was painless and it didn’t take very long for delivery. The Feld 47 exceeded all my expectations and then sum. I would highly recommend the Feld 47 to anyone.
