Pros:  You really get up close and personal to your coffee bean.  Grinding by hand gives you a level of control you donโ€™t get from other grinders.  The ceramic burr mill will never rust or impart unwanted flavors to your grind.  You can adjust from very fine espresso to course French press relatively easy.  The grind is always a consistent size.  If you are a true coffee nut this is a great tool to have as a part of your morning ritual.

Cons:  It takes a little more time and effort to grind the beans.  If you are making a full 12 cup pot this grinder will take some work.

Pro tip: This grinder is easy for travel.
