The Timemore G1 Plus has the same high-quality aluminum and black walnut used on other Timemore models but in greater quantity and distributed with a different style. The body and interior of the grinds-catch are made of aluminum alloy; the axle, dual bearings, and crank arm are made of stainless steel; and the pommel and exterior of the grinds-catch are made of black walnut. The burrs are premium, too, taking the E&B burrs of the Slim and NANO Plus models and coating them in a layer of titanium nitride that will make them last longer and feed more efficiently. The result is a smooth, quick, and consistent grind for every kind of brewing method.
In the G1, Timemore created a grinder that is both similar (in its materials) and different (in its style) from the other models in its lineup. Where the NANO and Slim have more of a contemporary look, the G1, in its juxtaposition of manmade and natural materials, has a classic, modern aesthetic. The grinder is bookended by black walnut but has a strong center of dark gray aluminum. The most obvious difference, though, is in the G1’s rounded cuboid shape, a departure from the true cylinders of the NANO and Slim Pluses and C2 before them. The G1 is truly a one-of-a-kind grinder from a company that is fast becoming the foremost manufacturer of affordable premium hand mills.
The G1 Plus, like all Timemore grinders, has a stepped grind adjustment system. The grind size is set by turning a dial on the bottom of the center burr. The dial, which is on a wheel attached to the axle, pushes the center burr closer to the outer burr when turned clockwise (creating a finer grind), and pulls the burr away from the outer burr when turned counterclockwise (creating a coarser grind). The system is easy to learn, especially since each “step” is accompanied by an audible, dare we say pleasing, click. The G1 Plus offers a full grind range, with espresso starting around 7 clicks from zero and pour over starting at around 15, and a total practical range of around 30-35 clicks. See the manual for recommendations.

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.
