Tiny Grinder, Big Quality
Some hand grinders focus on portability, others on grinds quality, and others still on user friendly design, but very few if any successfully bring together these three characteristics as effectively as the Timemore NANO hand grinder. Weighing in at 0.8 pounds (360 grams) and standing just under 5 inches (12.5 centimeters) tall this diminutive hand mill is a full-range grinder featuring study construction and 38 millimeter conical burrs designed to make quick work of small doses wherever the need arises. Built with a unibody aluminum alloy design and employing 430 stainless steel and 304 stainless steel for the collapsible handle and central axle respectively the NANO feels surprisingly hardy for its size and is built to last. With its dual bearing build and the diamond cut pattern on its surface this grinder is also a joy to use–comfortable to grip, smooth grinding action, and quick grinding speeds compared to many of its contemporaries.
Timemore uses a stepped grind adjustment to make finding and returning to your favorite grind settings simple–just tighten the grind adjustment down fully to find the zero point and then count the number of clicks it takes to get to where you're going. The NANO offers a full grind range, giving you the ability to grind for very fine drip, moka pot, or even espresso, all the way up to coarser grinds meant for large Chemex brews or full immersion brews like french press; though, because of its smaller capacity, the NANO works most effectively for smaller brews like Aeropress or single cup pour over. You also get your choice of two different burr sets. The stainless steel burr is the standard drip burr, excelling in the medium grind range (around 15-24 clicks from zero) for pour over drip brewing, while the titanium burr is made for finer grinding that'll give you better results for Aeropress, moka pot, and espresso.
Made To Travel
Making a travel-friendly grinder isn't just about size, it's about the details as well. Timemore includes a cinch top carrying bag to easily stow your grinder away, making it ready to pack up easily into luggage or a travel pack. One of the coolest features though is the spring assisted collapsible handle attached to the NANO's lid–the handle folds down easily against the body of the grinder, and with the magnetic removable black walnut pommel you get a device measuring just 3 inches (7.5 centimeters) across when it's all packed up to go. Whether you're an on-the-go brewer, or someone looking for a compact gear set for home, the Timemore NANO hand grinder needs to be on your shortlist for shopping.

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.
