If you need a well-made and reliable hand grinder that excels at espresso, you needn't consider anything but a LIDO. Orphan Espresso's LIDO grinders have a reputation for grind quality that's as stellar as their build quality, and the E-T packs fine-tuned adjustment for espresso into a travel-friendly package. The folding handle tucks in for easy packing into the included neoprene carrying case, and both a hex wrench and natural bristle brush fit neatly into stitched pockets. The metal body components are made of chrome-plated aluminum, with a 48 mm conical steel burr set and a fine threaded adjustment that's ideal for dialing in espresso. A 70 gram hopper and 100 gram catch jar offer plenty of capacity to grind for anything from single espresso doses to larger drip brews.
LIDO grinders feature superb construction, with dual bronze bearings to stabilize the grinding axle and cut out almost all the burr wobble. The key components are made of metal, with a plastic hopper and antistatic plastic grinds catch bin. A rubberized handle up top is easy and comfortable to grip, and the rubber hopper stopper keeps your beans from popcorning out while grinding. These are excellent grinders all in all, but there is a catch: grinding by hand is not for everyone, and even though the LIDO grinders are fast at about 1-3 gram per second, some will still prefer the ease of pushing a button on an electric grinder. So if you're into making your coffee by hand each step of the way, you're going to love a LIDO!
