For review, I was sent the Brillante™ Manual Coffee Grinder*. This grinder is made of ceramic, with the outside of the grinder being made of stainless steel/ aluminum/some sort of metal. Capable of making two persons worth of grounds in a couple of minutes, doing so silently, this grinder is perfect for a number of lifestyle situations.
I was excited (I need to come up with another word!) to try this grinder. I’ve used many electric grinders in the past, but I like that idea of a manual grinder for its silence and manual-ness. I like to do things myself. I was pleased to learn (after I’d made one batch of grounds) that this grinder has setting to adjust the grind size. Perfect for use with espresso machines, french presses, coffee makers, and any other method you may use.
I used this grinder to grind myself up a single serving of coffee grounds for use with my french press. I’m looking forward to using this grinder when I move next month and begin to live with roommates. I’ll likely be making my morning coffee in my office, and it will be nice to not have to worry about the loud electric grinder waking my wall-mates.
Overall, I’ve really enjoyed using and trying out this grinder. I’d like to try it with pepper and other spices next, as recommended by Brillante™. This grinder will certainly continue to be used by me. I’ll have to give the other ground size settings a try, too.
