Rising From The Ashes
After a devastating fire hit their factory roof in late 2018, Kinu responded by springing back with a flourish. Not only would they release a new grinder but they named it quite appropriately for the situation, and thus the M47 Phoenix was born. This grinder still packs under the hood much of what makes the other M47 hand grinders so wonderful to use—Black Fusion coated 47 mm conical burrs, precise grind adjustment, dual ball bearing mounted stainless steel axle—while replacing other pieces with ABS plastic for a lower weight and cost than its other M47 linemates.
Build Quality You Can Rely On
Reducing the weight and cost of the popular M47 Classic without compromising quality presented a challenge that Kinu was more than capable of handling. Keeping much of the stainless steel construction from the Phoenix’s forerunner—including the grinder body, burrs, axle, grind adjustment, and handle arm—was important to maintain the rugged quality Kinu is known for. The updates came in the grinds catch, bean funnel, and internal bearing mounts transitioning to ABS plastic, leaving you with a hand mill made for premium grinding at an approachable price.
Unparaleled 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 precise stepless adjustment; with 50 marks per every revolution of the adjustment knob and an obviously noted zero point you can make big adjustments with ease. And, with each mark on the knob 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.
