The simplicity that the Hario Coffee Mill Canister has is a welcome commodity, especially during an early morning routine. The grinder itself has minimal parts making set up, usage, and clean up a breeze. It’s also beautiful to look at sitting on the kitchen counter. Its wooden handle is warm to the touch, and the polished brass construction is warm in appearance and lovely. The glass container is substantial in size and feels good held in the hand as you crank. And by the way, the entire product is made from metal parts that seem to be precisely thought about and designed, because it doesn’t take a lot of arm power to grind a good amount of beans.
The resistance felt as you grind however, is strangely satisfying… but again, it’s so fluid that even a 5 year old can operate it. The operation itself is quiet and not screamingly loud, like mechanical grinders- very welcome in the morning or late at night. The grind particles are very consistent- and with this, the coffee tastes consistent (rich but less acidic by the way, very nice). There’s a definite difference in taste made with this grinder compared to other blade-style mechanical grinders.

How long does it take to grind beans? Assuming a grind for drip coffee/pour-over, approximate time per tablespoon of ground coffee? Thanks
It is not a time consuming process. Takes me less than 2 minutes each time. The secret to a good grind is getting the setting as fine as you want by adjusting the nut on top (which you can then leave there), and turning at a consistent rate. You can't beat the flavor and aroma!
