Rhino Gear Compact Coffee Grinder w/ Adaptor for AeroPress

We are excited to offer this hand crank coffee mill from Rhino Coffee Gear. This makes it a great travel grinder, especially since it comes with a cloth storage bag and is the perfect size to sit inside an Aeropress® - the grinder also includes a plastic adaptor that allows you to grind directly into your Aeropress®. The grind quality is very good, and the mill grinds efficiently, fairly quickly, but not too fast. Like any manual mill it takes some elbow grease to crank out a grind, but the workout is worth it - this grinder is far less awkward to crank compared to similar hand mills.

We are excited to offer this hand crank coffee mill from Rhino Coffee Gear. 

The Rhino mill has ceramic burrs and a very sturdy construction. The grind quality is very good, and the mill grinds efficiently. Like any manual mill it takes some elbow grease to crank out a grind, but the workout is worth it - this grinder is far less awkward to crank compared to similar hand mills. 

It has a conical burr design, so it can do a range of grinds from espresso to a French press grind. The body is primarily primarily stainless steel, although there are some internal plastic components. The top acts as a lid, so technically you could grind and then store the coffee in the base; but who would do that? The grinder also includes a plastic adaptor that allows you to grind directly into your Aeropress® - this makes it a great travel grinder, especially since it comes with a cloth storage bag and is the perfect size to sit inside an Aeropress®. 


To adjust the grind setting, you tighten/loosen the nut in the base of the burrs. This is a stepped adjustment, not continuous like on the Zassenhaus models. We've noticed the handle's plastic component can detach with wear, but this does not effect the functionality of the grinder - no need to replace the handle! 

Dimensions: 5.25"h x 1.75" diameter (6.5"with handle in place)

Adjusting the appropriate grind:

- For grind to suit Aeropress®, tighten nut all the way, then ease off half a turn

- For French Press, ease off 1.5 turns

- For a V60, tighten the burrs all the way, and then go half a turn back. 

- For a moka pot, adjust so that the burrs are touching then open up a notch or two.

Cleaning tips:

- Clean once per month (darker roasts may require more frequent cleaning) 

- Use warm, soapy water and a soft bristle brush to remove all residual coffee

- Rinse with fresh water and allow the parts to fully dry before re-assembling
