Handground Coffee Grinder Kickstarter Campaign


Special Note: This project was funded in the first 18 hours!



Here's a neat new product that I stumbled upon a while back, the Handground coffee grinder. This specialty grinder is a crowdsourced project and it was developed by thousands of coffee lovers world-wide.  

The big news is, their Kickstarter campaign launched today and they've already hit about 80% of their goal. This looks to be a great product and it deserves the support of every coffee lover. Check out the details below. 


What sets Handground apart from other grinders?

  • Locking top so bean particles don't fly out while you grind
  • Side-mounted handle for better ergonomics 
  • Wide base for more stability while grinding
  • 100g Capacity hopper able to contain enough coffee beans for 5 cups of joe
  • Coarseness adjustment ring to select a grind setting with one twist
  • 20 preset coarseness levels at 125 micron intervals fit for any method of brewing
  • 38mm conical burrs made from densely sintered Alumina ceramic which has high strength and hardness, temperature stability, and high wear resistance and corrosion resistance
  • Triple mounted stainless steel axle to eliminate burr wobble and produce a consistent grind 
  • Borosilicate glass catcher to prevent static and sticky grounds
