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, they named it quite appropriately for the situation: and thus the M47 Phoenix rose from the ashes. Like their flagship M47, the Phoenix features the same exact 47 mm conical burr set and precision grind adjustment, with dual bearings to center and stabilize the grind system. The Phoenix's proportions are almost identical to the M47, except that much of the weight has been removed by incorporating ABS plastic parts in place of steel. The result is a grinder that looks and performs almost exactly like its predecessor, with a greatly reduced weight and price.

With an improved capacity of 40-50 grams in the hopper, the Phoenix is able to comfortably handle just about any dose you need for brewing. Kinu's 47 mm Black Fusion burrs are best suited for espresso in our experience, producing shots with excellent body and flavor clarity. As each click on the adjustment wheel corresponds to a movement of 0.01 mm in the burrs, the steps are more than fine enough to allowing proper dialing in for espresso. With brewed coffee, we have found that smaller brews tend to have the best flavor clarity, and flavor is muddied somewhat as the grind is set coarser.

The M47 Phoenix is made of steel and ABS plastic, with a silicone band for grip. The burrs, bearings, axle, grind adjustment, and handle arm are all steel, with a steel cylinder for the grinder body. The grinds catch, handle pommel, and internal bearing mounts are made of ABS plastic. Please see the User Manual for use and care instructions.
