The First Of Its Name
It didn’t take long for Kinu to establish themselves as a go-to brand for premium quality hand grinders, and their flagship hand mill the M47 is evidence as to how exactly they did it. Starting with rugged materials, a proprietary burr coating, repeatably precise adjustment, and exacting manufacturing expectations, you’ll be hard pressed to find a grinder with better construction than what they’ve managed to fit into this 2.3 lbs package. Now offering two other versions of the M47, the Simplicity and the Phoenix, the M47 Classic is the forerunner to a whole line of incredibly high quality German hand grinders.
Impeccably Crafted At Every Turn
The Kinu M47’s build quality is obvious as soon as you unbox it. Its reassuring heft comes from the stainless steel body and internal construction, utilizing precisely machined steel struts for stability and auto-centering of the axle while grinding. The actual work of cranking the grinder is aided by two sets of ball bearings for an easy and fluid user experience. You’ll also find the two ABS plastic parts—the thumb stopper and crank handle—both of which provide a comfortable grip even when grinding for espresso. And the magnetic grinds catch makes removing and replacing your grinds catch a breeze with no threading or other barriers to its functionality.
Unparalleled Control Over Your Grind
Hand grinder adjustment can be a guessing game, between stepless grinders that don’t provide you with an obvious zero-point and stepped grinders that restrict your ability to get the grind just right it can be tough to dial-in to a repeatable and ideal setting. Kinu succeeds in giving you that control with its micro-stepped adjustment; with 50 steps per every revolution of the adjustment knob and an obviously marked zero point you can make big adjustments with precision. And, with each mico-step corresponding to 0.01 mm of vertical burr movement, you can be sure to get your grind exactly where it needs to be for a beautiful espresso, V60, or batch brew.
Espresso To Batch Brew And Everything In Between
Kinu’s 47 mm Black Fusion coated conical burr does especially well with turkish coffee, espresso, and fine drip grinding, while still doing well at coarser settings. If you happen to be a large batch pour over brewer, Chemex die hard, or french press aficionado, Kinu’s Pour Over Replacement Burr is made for exactly that purpose; producing coarser grounds with increased consistency and fewer fines.

Comparison Of Premium Hand Grinders
The ascension of the grinder to its status as the most crucial piece of brewing gear is well deserved. More than anything else the grinder has the potential to make, or severely limit the flavor quality of brewed coffee.
