Switching from the electric model brings out the Handground Coffee Grinder. The key feature of this manual unit is the consistent grind it produces. It is an excellent tool for use in the kitchen each week, or you can take it with you when you go camping but still want freshly ground coffee.

This small unit is robust and effective yet lightweight. Use it by placing the beans into the cup, connecting the handle and turning it to grind your coffee by hand.

The unit has 15 grind settings, so users can select the level they want, from fine to course, depending on the coffee type you intend to brew. Each of those settings produces a consistent grind for your perfect cup of coffee.

Unlike other portable coffee grinders, this unit features a side-mount handle. The positioning of this unit’s handle gives it a more ergonomic design.

Unlike some of the boring manual grinders, this one offers a different approach. If you are looking for a portable unit that does not require electricity, this one should be on the list.

The Precision by Handground aims to raise the performance of manual grinders. The ceramic burrs and overall construction are of high quality and make for a consistent grind. The vertical spinning handle is one of it’s standout features but we found it less ergonomic than a traditional setup. This might be different for you but it’s worth testing.
