If you’re in the UK you can’t go wrong with Square Mile.

Birthday goodies from the FAM!
New PORLEX is a dream compared to RHINOWARE grinder…
Jabberwocky blend is splendid.

Went with these guys. Their Veracruz filter is lovely, exactly what I was looking for.

But imho if you’re grinding beans for a single aeropress it’s less hassle to go manual.

Got those Hasbean myself not too long ago. Didn’t rate them at all, was ‘ok’ at the beginning in a gimmicky way, but much prefer my boring old lavazza beans

How long does it take exactly?

Don't have space on my kitchen surfaces for an electric.

Maybe 60-90 seconds. I’m not interested in hand grinding because I mostly grind for batch but purely from a look & feel standpoint I can’t get on with the lightweight feel of the Porlex. If you haven’t bought anything yet take a look at the Commandante c40 for the real heads. But it’s really not a fair comparison, like an H&M sweat vs Real Mccoys.
