Built For Professional Level Consistency
Producing consistent coffee grounds is a big ask for many grinders out there, but the Orphan Espresso LIDO E-T proves that it’s absolutely achievable. Using durable but lightweight materials like BPA-free plastic, cast aluminum, and stainless steel, they put together a hand grinder that focuses on uniformity and precision at a reasonable price. The 48 mm Swiss-made conical steel burrs make relatively quick work of anything from an espresso dose to enough beans for a batch brew, and the dual brass bearings securing the axle make sure that burr wobble won’t get in the way of you getting the consistency you need.
Designed For Espresso, Capable Of Anything
The LIDO E-T is a full-range hand grinder, which means that you can grind from Turkish or espresso coffee all the way to whatever your coarsest needs are. Its dual ring adjustment on the body is finely threaded and stepless so you’ll never be limited to predetermined settings, giving you precise control over your grind size and letting you easily fine tune your extractions to perfection. Just loosen the top ring that locks your grind setting in place and adjust finer or coarser with the bottom adjustment ring, then tighten down that top ring again to lock your grind size into place. Espresso settings begin (approximately) around 8 reference lines backward from the zero point.
Ready To Travel When You Are
A lot of hand mills are travel-friendly by nature thanks to their relatively small size, but few are designed with travel in mind as specifically as the LIDO E-T. Its rubberized handle can be folded in over the body of the grinder to fit neatly in the included neoprene carrying case, which also has spots to bring along the maintenance and cleaning tools should the need arise. And, thanks to those durable materials it’s made from, you can have confidence that your grinder will get to its destination safely.

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.
