Porlex Tall II Hand Coffee Grinder

The original grind anywhere grinder.

Looking for an exceptional hand coffee grinder? Whether you want the perfect coffee grinder for travel, or a great quality burr grinder without the price tag of an electric machine, Porlex grinders are what you're looking for.

After battling hundreds of hoards of beans of every size, shape, and roast, as well as surviving the harsh conditions of camping backpacks, carry on luggage, and office desk drawers, the Porlex has gained enough experience points for a big level up: Introducing the PORLEX II!

With its newly designed burr set, the Porlex II can grind beans more easily, more quickly, and more evenly. This results in fewer fines, less boulders, and more even quality grounds.

Compared to the Porlex I, this grinder can produce roughly 1.3 times more ground coffee with the same number of rotations. There's no need to worry about the top of the grinder rolling away like a boulder in Indiana Jones - Porlex has redesigned the adjustment nut so that it stands up proud and tall on its own!

With the new burrs, the per-click adjustment changes an average of 37 microns - meaning you can further dial in your brewing recipes. Made in Japan with higher quality materials than its predecessor, the Porlex II punches above its weight - scaring its rivals back to their grinder travel pouch caves.

Your favourite Porlex grinder just got loads better. So gift your Porlex I to your cousin or co-worker, and pick-up the new and improved Porlex II hand grinder in the battle for portable coffee supremacy.

"Something that we receive emails about on a fairly regular basis is hand grinder parts, turns out some of the other grinders out there have flimsy parts that like to break and if you use them they may very well break in your grinder. Want to know you're working with quality grinder parts? Look for the Porlex logo! Their ceramic burrs are laser etched with their logo and the plastic spindle has their name moulded into the bottom. Don't accept anything less!

The Porlex Tall is 185mm tall and 49mm in diameter without handle, the hopper can hold 40g of coffee.

Did you know this grinder fits perfectly into the bottom of an AeroPress? For those of you who like to have your coffee cupboards/corners super neat (like me) this is a real storage dream. Or for the whole travel thing too!

The grinder is adjusted by twisting the locking nut on the bottom and most people like to work on a system of clicks from zero, wind the lock all the way up to where it won't click and more and then un-click the following amount of times for grind settings...

  • 1-4: superfine (work those arms!)
  • 5-6: fine filter
  • 7-8: medium filter
  • 9-10: coarse filter
  • 11-12: immersion

Although please note folks, these should only be treated as a rough guide and a starting place, everyone brews differently and they can change based on a massive number of variables. Use them as a starting place if you're not sure and then work from there, brew what's tasty for you!"
