The Verdict?

The Hario coffee mill skerton is a nice, cost-effective grinder for anyone who doesn’t mind expending some elbow grease before getting that first sip of fresh-ground, freshly-brewed coffee. It produces very evenly ground coffee and is easy to clean, with almost no place for stale coffee grounds to accumulate.

The Hario coffee grinder has blissfully few parts, and you can adjust the grind with a simply screw so you can get exactly the grind you are looking for. The grind plates have a locking nut that keeps them aligned with respect to the main crankshaft, so it will never loosen while you’re using it. The lid for the jar and for the hopper are both made of a durable flexible rubber which makes them quiet, rust proof, easy to use and resilient. For an outstanding conical burr grinder, this coffee grinder is highly value for money at the price you pay.
