  • The Slim Plus uses the new E&B stainless steel burrs, newly designed burr shape provide wide range of grind setting from espresso to filter brewing. The spring mechanism that locks the inner burr into position and two ball bearings that hold the grind shaft in place. The result is an exceptionally precise grind and a smooth turning handle. The Slim Plus comes with a Crank style handle, make both hands parallel with each other smooth and easy grinder.

    The Timemore Slim Plus Coffee Grinder is great when you want a hand grinder that's precise enough for perfect espresso shots but it's equally well suited to coarser grinds.

    The Slim Plus comes with sharp Stainless Steel Burrs perfect for espresso, coarse grinds like French Press, and everything in between. We also have Titanium-coated Stainless Steel burrs, designed specifically for the best espresso grind as a replacement part.

    • E&B Stainless Steel burr set
    • Martensitic stainless steel 20CR13
    • Capacity: ~20g
    • Diameter: 45mm
    • Includes a grinder brush
  • We recommend that you grind through some Urnex Grindz™ every once in a while to soak up coffee oils and make it easier to keep your grinder clean. And while this video is for the Nano, you can brush clean your Slim the same way:

This grinder absolutely slaps

This grinder has been working wonders for my coffee for both an aero press and pour over. The grinds are more consistent than those I'v gotten from a cheaper hand grinder and the grinding itself is a lot easier and doesn't tire my weak fore arm out. The incremented grind size selection works well for me but I haven't really tested it in the finer side where increment sizes could be a problem. I also just think it aesthetically pleasing.

Timeless Timemore

It is timeless in esthetic, and sturdy and reliable in function. I use it for aeropress and pour over and it has drastically enhanced my coffee experience ! If you’re not planning to use it for serious espresso and you want something beautiful and functional that has a nice grip (I have small-medium hands), you won’t regret buying this!

Would easily gift with confidence because it screams quality, class and durability when you hold it in hand.

(I do push its recommended setting to 7 or 8 and use it for espresso with a Bambino Plus and it works for my taste buds by tweaking dose and other parameters)

Wish - that the adjustment dial had more clicks, sure it’s got the E&B burr, E for espresso but two-three clicks isn’t enough. A custom adjustment ring exists with double the clicks but not accessible! Only then would it be perfect for my purposes which is “ok to stay at espresso-noob stage who enjoys feeling like a barista at home, and enjoys her pour overs and aeropress and occasional French press.”

I agree with the cons detailed by A.B. and N.H.

Update: few months in, still a breeze to grind med-dark roast, but you’re in for a workout for lighter roasts . Very good size for travel!

Great machine

Yes, it is a manual machine, but it is so well constructed that grinding coffee every morning is very easy and a new pleasure of my morning routine. The size is very handy and it has a good gripping. I have only tried a few grind sizes, but the grain size selector seems easy to understand and manipulate. It is important to note that I have tried coarse grinding only, I do not know how it works for the smaller grain sizes. Summarizing, I'm happy with the grinder.

Such a pleasure to use every morning

I was previously using 2 mediocre burr grinders; an electric for pour overs and a hand grinder. Both with plastic burrs. The Time More has replaced both.

It results in much better coffee. But I also enjoy using it every morning because of its metal build and efficient crank. It's my favourite piece of coffee equipment to operate.

For a larger pour over its volume is a little low which requires some juggling of the grinds. But it's really not a serious issue.

Excellent purchase

Well made, beautiful, pleasant to use and easy to clean. Worth the investment. Also to be noted: I forgot to add an item to my original order and called customer service. I got the line right away, the guy was pleasant ans cancelled my order or the spot so I could place the new one. Waited with me on the phone until I got the email confirmations. Great experience all around.

Timemore Chestnut Slim Plus

For grinding your coffee at home or on the road the Timemore is the answer. The feel of the Timemore in your hand is that it is well built with a touch of class. Adjusting grind is easy and setting does not change between grinding (like my old hand grinder). Parts fit together perfectly like a engineering project.

Five Stars, with One Caveat

This is my first hand grinder and I absolutely love it. It feels great in the hand, and it is very easy to use every morning. I grind 3 tablespoons of coffee beans at a time, and it takes me about 35-42 turns for perfect pour-over grounds. Very satisfying. I will not go back to an electric grinder. I think I originally set the grind at 20 clicks, and I will not adjust it again if I don't have to. I agree with everything that reviewer N.H. says: the grind size adjustment is finicky. And, in fact, on my first try, I accidentally disassembled the whole thing, because the adjuster is also a threaded fastener that holds everything together. The diagram in the user manual didn't exactly reflect all the parts that are in my grinder (like the spring), so I had to really look around online to figure out how to put it back together (not being mechanically savvy myself!). That said, I would still buy this again. Though I hope it lasts me a lifetime (and it feels like it will), I look forward to seeing what else Timemore develops.
