  • After battling hundreds of hoards of beans of every size, shape, and roast, as well as surviving the harsh conditions of camping backpacks, carry on luggage, and office desk drawers, the Porlex has gained enough experience points for a big level up: Introducing the PORLEX II!

    With its newly designed burr set, the Porlex II can grind beans easier, faster, and more evenly. This results in less fines, less boulders, and more even grounds. Do you know what they say about even grounds? More delicious coffee in your mouth! Compared to the Porlex I, this grinder can produce roughly 1.3 times more coffee with the same number of rotations. Wow! There is no need to worry about the top of the grinder rolling away like a boulder in Indiana Jones - Porlex has redesigned the adjustment nut so that it stands up proud and tall on its own! With the new burr, the per click adjustment changes an average of 37 microns - meaning you can further dial in your Hario V60 recipe. Made in Japan with higher quality materials than its predecessor, the Porlex II punches above its weight - scaring its rivals back to their grinder travel pouch caves.

    Your favourite Porlex grinder just got way better. So gift your Porlex I to your cousin or co-worker, and pick-up the new and improved Porlex II hand grinder in the battle for portable coffee supremacy.

Porlex Mini Grinder II

Nothing but love

This is my first coffee grinder, so I have no others to compare to.
However I did spent a couple weeks doing my research and chatting up with my neighborhood barista, before deciding on Porlex MIni II

Product is small and light, got a pretty good grip to it, easy to clean. Living up to its name: Made in Japan

I have been using this everyday for espresso, it took a while for me to familiarize with the adjustment knob, but you will get used to the "how tight it should be before I start clicking" before you know it, just don't go all crossfit strength on it ofcourse.

The espresso grind is consistent enough, I don't taste any / much difference in my daily cup of flat white. (I'm pairing it with Leverpresso non-pressurize maker)
I did consider purchasing the Timemore C2 Grinder just to compare, but Porlex seem to have captured what I wanted already.

Conclusion, I am very happy with my decision. Strongly recommended!

Great grinder

I bought this grinder for portability. It has been fantastic. I doubt its as accurate as a $200-300 grinder, but that’s not what you would buy a mini for. Very happy with this purchase.

So Good!

Had a Hario Mini Slim for about 5 years, no complaints, but the Porlex grinds faster and more evenly! Less to break with the all metal design and no threads, and super easy to clean. All that plus fitting in to the Aeropress cylinder; I am pleased.

Great Portable Ginder

Have been using this grinder for about six months now and I absolutely love it, the grind range is massive and can grind very close to an espresso grind if you're in a pinch. For the price it is great but as the grind gets coarser you do notice that the grind size is not super consistent but if paired with a Kruve sifter you can have very consistent grinds. Overall would recommend to anybody starting out looking for a good bang for your buck or somebody looking to travel as this fits inside the top of the aeropress when the rubber sleeve is removed.

A must have for fresh grinds on the go!

I currently own a couple tall Porlex grinders so I knew what to expect when i orders the mini grinder II. I must say since both of the tall grinders I own are the versions before this I was very happy with the updates they have done with the version II. To start off i love that the mini includes a rubber holder to keep the handle close to the grinder, yes you can use a rubber band but the band that is included seems much more sturdy and will last longer in the long term side of things. The other thing I really appreciated was the new and improved adjustment knob. The older version I have had very little feedback when turning the adjustment knob for the grind size, it wasn't a big deal but I did find myself a couple times having to start over since i didn't know if I hit the little ridges or if i skipped them. On the mini II the feedback from the ridges are much more pronounced so there is absolutely no second guessing yourself, it was also a plus that the knob is much larger so it really helps making sure that the grind size is perfect! Other than that everything else was up to standard like the ceramic burs to the stainless steel body, it is exactly what you expect from a Porlex product!

Great mini grinder

Grinder is well built and feels nice in the hands. The grind settings are easy to change and the consistency of the grind is very uniform. I like that the handle is easily detachable and can be stored in the little silicon sleeve. For anyone buying this as a companion to an Aero Press, the grinder will fit in the body of the Aero Press but only with the silicon sleeve removed. Makes the perfect amount for Aero Press coffee’s though! According to Porlex you’re fine to wash this with regular tap water, just dry it really well after. Makes for easy cleaning!
