The conical ceramic burrs don’t rust, are easy to clean and stay sharper for much longer than steel burrs. The Porlex Tall has a capacity of 44g whole bean - double the capacity of the Porlex Mini - so you can grind enough for you and your friend.
From our testing, it copes well with everything you can throw at it - from Turkish to French Press grind setting - and thanks to a easily accessible locking nut, is really easy to adjust. But the thing that really sets the Porlex apart from other hand grinders is the speed and ease of grind. This is down to a couple of features: a long steel handle that connects solidly to the grinder and the ability to hold the grinder steadily in one hand while turning the handle with the other.
