Budget, Yet Quality
With the second iteration of the incredibly popular Chestnut C2, Timemore has continued its budget-friendly, high-quality approach to their products, and the C2 Max is certainly no exception. The C2 Max retains the same reliable 38mm conical steel burrs as its younger sibling while boasting a few thoughtful revisions, making this grinder perfect for consistent and delicious pour-over brews. Whether you’re just starting to brew at home or want a new manual grinder that won’t break the bank, the Timemore C2 Max checks all the boxes.
Economic & Effective
It’s no secret that exceptional coffee begins with an exceptional grinder. However, premium grinding often comes with a premium price tag. Timemore is looking to change that. In the C2 Max, you’ll find the same 38mm stainless steel conical burrs, the same dual-bearing stabilization, and the same precision stepped grind adjustment that you would find in Timemore’s other high-quality hand grinders. What sets the C2 Max apart is the integration of PCTG plastic into the grinder where you might normally find steel or wood. The incorporation of plastic internal stabilizers and a plastic pommel doesn’t sacrifice quality by any means. It merely allows Timemore to offer a more economic solution for the home barista, no matter their level of experience.
Larger Capacity, Consistent Results
Of all the revisions found on the Timemore C2 Max, the increased capacity 25 to 30 grams is the most welcomed. And while Timemore’s stepped adjustment dial isn’t exclusive to the C2 Max, it still remains a favored and approachable system for ensuring that you achieve the same premium results in your grind every time. Timemore also includes a manual with the C2 Max that features recommended starting points for your preferred brewing method, an incredibly helpful tool for those just introducing the routine of brewing coffee from the comfort of home to their daily lives.

A Comparison of Premium Hand Grinders for Coffee and Espresso
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. It is natural, then, for this movement to extend across new territory—the world of mobile brewing.
