Rarely does a hand grinder look and feel so good. The Feldgrind's construction is compact and sturdy, and plainly well-engineered. Featuring 38 mm conical steel burrs coated with ceramic for better hardness and longevity, the Feldgrind makes short work of a charge of beans. Grinding for espresso takes about 45 seconds for a dose of 20 grams, and a similar dose for a V60 grind takes about 30. The stepless adjustment includes a prominent dial with clearly labeled radial markings, making it fairly easy to come back to a desired grind setting. We've found shots pulled with the Feldgrind to be crisp and clear, and quite easy to dial in. Brews show only a trace of fines at coarse settings, making for equally balanced and crisp pourovers.

The Feldgrind is designed for travel, with a compact size and components that lock in with friction and stay put while you're on the move. The handle easily comes off the drive shaft spur and straps in with the included rubber grip band for packing up and traveling. The hopper will hold about 30-40 grams of coffee, depending on the roast level and bean size. To clean, simply brush or wipe clean with dry implements, and remove the cone burr if needed using a standard allen wrench.

  • Compact hand grinder with excellent grind quality
  • Stepless grind adjustment, ranging from Turkish fine to press pot coarse
  • Ceramic-coated conical steel burrs
  • Internal bearings and spring for excellent burr stabilization
  • Removable handle with rubber sleeve grip for storage and travel
  • Roughly 40 gram hopper capacity
  • Clearly marked adjustment dial for easily repeatable grind settings
  • Materials include: stainless steel, aluminum, silicone, rubber and plastic
  • Made in the UK

Wonderful Well-Built Hand Grinder

My experience with coffee grinders started years ago with a blade grinder. Then I graduated to an inexpensive electric burr grinder, then to a Hario Mini, a Rhinowares and now to the Feldgrind. The more I learned about quality coffee-brewing - particularly the importance of the grinder to the process - the more I realized there was a better espresso awaiting if I invested in a better product. I didn’t want the bulk (nor the expense) of a large counter top espresso-specific grinder, and by reading reviews, became convinced that I could get the same quality in a smaller, more portable package for less money. The Feldgrind has not disappointed me. These grinders are made by a tiny company in Scotland, and therefore are not mass-produced, hence the considerable wait. But the Feldgrind appears to be crafted as a ‘passion project’ with skill and care, and is was worth waiting for. The grinder has allowed me to pull espressos that rival anything I can buy from a barista in town. I do have one minor complaint and it does not affect the grinding process itself: the top lid could be more securely attached and will slip off if you’re not careful. But that’s only a minor complaint. I love the feature that allows you to lock in the burr setting by moving the top dial to whatever number you prefer - stepless, yet easily registered for future use. Otherwise, the Feldgrind is sturdy, sleek, well-engineered and comfortable to grind. For anyone who loves the hands-on approach to coffee-making, this is a great product!

Great Upgrade

Now that I've got a feel for it, I'm loving the results that I'm getting with the Feldgrind. I don't even touch my Encore anymore since this is such a pleasure to use. I opted for the Feldgrind over the Lido 3 for size and appearance and I'm happy with how portable this thing is so I can use it at home in the morning and throw it in my bag to use at work for an afternoon Aeropress.

Kock Feldgrind

I had been eyeing this grinder for a while and I regret not purchasing it earlier. Major step up from the encore I was using. Impressive hand grinder for the size and price

Extremely well-made and effective

Very nice hand grinder. Easy to operate. It worked very well for making finely-ground espresso in a Cimbali espresso machine using a 20g basket. Cannot overstate how very well made and easy to use this grinder is.

Fantastic hand grinder

I bought this as an upgrade from my previous Hario Mini Mill and Porlex Mini. Compared to both, the grind is infinitely more consistent. Perhaps just as importantly, the grind is repeatable with the Feldgrind's adjustment dial. The grinder feels great to use and is clearly well-built -- I have absolutely no complaints.

Great manual grinder

I only make coffee for myself (at most 2 people), and this grinder is perfect for me. The grind adjustment works great and it is very solid. It is all metal and I like the black color. I use it mostly for Chemex, but it is perfectly capable to grind for espresso and even finer (I am pretty sure it could clog most machines if you grind too fine). Unlike in cheaper hand grinders, the burrs don't wobble at all. A word about size and weight: this grinder is certainly portable and convenient to take places, but I would not take it backpacking (it is too heavy for that).

Happy Grinding

I purchased this as a replacement for an older ceramic burr hand grinder I had been using for a few years. While this cost almost five times what I paid for my old hand grinder, it has been worth every penny and is a welcome addition to my coffee routine. The grinder feels solid and heavy in hand, which is probably why it cranks through coffee at all different levels like a knife through butter. Grinder adjustments are simple, and having the numbers on the dial means that you can easily switch between grind settings depending on what you're brewing. I love being able to jump back and forth between Aeropress and V60 grinds without the dialing in that I was used to with my older hand grinder.

Incredible quality

The Knock Feldgrind is a lovely piece of work. The attention to detail is very obvious. It grinds very, very smoothly. It's much quieter than other grinders I've used. When empty, the shaft spins so smoothly, a testament to the quality of the bearings and work. I'm glad I bought this!

Solid Hand Grinder

I was torn between the Feldgrind and Helor, but chose this one because of the more proven history, as well as price. The grinder feels super solid in the hand and incredibly well built. It is very smooth and adjustment is easy. My one and only complaint is how slow it is to grind 18+g for espresso - definitely over a minute and several hundred turns. I'm sure this will speed up over time as the burrs break in, and I am spoiled by a well broken-in Pharos at home. Bottom line - great travel/secondary grinder, produces very consistent grinds at a fantastic price. You probably can't get a better grind for less money, just be prepared to crank for a while.

Great grinder

This grinder is great. An obvious upgrade from a blade grinder. Mainly used for aeropress and chemex but has made me realize how great home roasted coffee can be. I have used it on espresso but just briefly so I couldn't necessarily judge it for espresso due to lack of time. But so far consistency has been great and it takes basically no effort to grind and I've tried both light and dark roast. Only a couple things I don't love about it, the handle isn't very snug when you place it on the shaft so if you aren't careful it will come off. The top cap is the same but that's really not an issue to me. Lastly the grinds chamber came off once while grinding a larger amount to coffee and dumped grounds all over the floor, but it was my fault because I forgot to empty it. Overall I would recommend it to anyone without a doubt. Also thanks to prima coffee for being a solid company with fast shipping.

Hard to find grinder in the US

I just bought this from Prima. First off, they are awesome in terms of service and shipping. This grinder was difficult to buy living in the US so I am very glad Prima is stocking this. I bought from the manufacturer in Scotland but it was never shipped even after several weeks of wait. I was looking to replace my 8 year old "Kyocera Advanced Ceramic Coffee Grinder" which IMO is terrible for pour-over (my goto device is Kalita) brewing. I have a Baratza Percisio but I took it work because my wife hates to lose her kitchen counter space. She hated Kyocera too because I would leave kitchen counter with shards of coffee beans flying everywhere. Enter Feldgrind,...BOY! what an amazing engineering, effortless grinding and consistency of the grind. I got my mine with printed instructions which were quite simple of follow. I am sure you have good knowledge of coffee and grinding already if you are looking to buy this product. There are tons of resources at Coffee Geek and Home Barista forums about this grinder to lean on for advice, pictures and videos. I also bought this with the intention of learning espresso in the future. I brewed my usual morning coffee twice with Kalita 155 using both grinders and matching grind size as closely as possible. Even though I am not a trained coffee taster I can tell the difference. Coffee brewed with Feldgrind tastes way better and sweeter! Like many others have said before, grinder is everything....without a good grinder you cannot get good coffee. I see it as a way of respecting the farm from which those coffee beans are produced.

Snatch this bad boy up!

i am beyond excited to see the Fledgrind on prima! I had been watching made by knock for a while, and the only way to get one in the states was to pretty much get lucky. He only had a few for sale at a time, and I happened to be on his website when he threw them up there. I had been looking at hand grinders for quite some time. Yet, the only ones I had messed with where bulky, impossible to dial in, and didnt have a great grind consistency. Everything I had read about the FeldGrind suggested it was superior to the usual hand grinder. Needless to say, I was excitation when mine arrived in the mail. Ok, to the good stuff. out of the box it takes some getting used to. There were no directions or anything, so trial and error was my options. Not sure if prima is going to have a set of instructions or any paperwork with it. You'll go through a little bit of coffee trying to dial your grind size up. I usually only do a v60, so I don't have to change my grind size often. The step less selection is so easy and effortless. Just turn the dial and grind away. I was blown away at how fast this thing grinds up coffee, It's pretty darn close to the speed of an electric grinder. One word of caution, when you are getting close to finishing the grind don't get overzealous. I've had a couple times where the handle slips of the notch and whips around and try's to knock your finger off. let's talk a bout how awesome this grind consistency is... It's awesome! I loved this thing so much I gave my electric grinder to my friend. Now I only use this bad boy. My only bugaboos about the Feldgrind is that it doesn't fit into an aero press, and it's a little difficult to clean the burrs without taking it completely apart and losing your grind setting. I can't recommend this highly enough, I love showing it to all my buddies that work at cafes, and to anyone that will listen to me talk about it. thanks to the Feldgrind, my home brew game is stronger than ever.

Great grinder

The only reason I didn’t get the grinder 5 stars is I haven’t had it long. Other than that, the grinder has worked phenomenally. The quality and wide array of grinds are incredible. I can grind coarse for french press then grind fine for espresso, it’s a wonderful jack of all trades quality grinder! The hopper fits about 30 grams of whole bean. I would prefer a little bigger hopper for making coffee for multiple people, but it’s not a huge deal. The time and difficulty grinding beans isn’t terrible, its a little work but you’re using a hand grinder, you can’t expect much different. I’ve used a couple other hand grinders and this one takes less time, is easier and has a better quality of ground bean. This isn’t a knock on the grinder, but it’s a little difficult for me to find the best setting for various types of coffee grinds. Since this grinder isn’t sold in a ton of different stores, there’s not a lot of help on the internet to help you find the correct grind setting. I’ve found one website that helps, thats it. But if you want a high quality grinder and aren’t afraid to put a little extra money out for it, I would HIGHLY recommend this grinder! I love it and will probably never use anything else!

Compact and impressive, but faulty part and no response by manufacturer

I love this grinder, the most compact manual one I could find that produces a pretty consistent coarseness. I've been making good espresso with it while traveling. However, soon after I purchased the grinder, the knob fell off the handle and it no longer stays put. The grinding now feels loose, and the knob occasionally pops off (and rolls away!). I contacted the manufacturer, Knock, by e-mail several times, but I received no response. This is disappointing, as I'm now left with a knob that regularly falls off the handle. Defects like this should be covered without question on a grinder of this price.
