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

May I ask why did you go down manual grinding route?

enjoy the 'Ritual'
Tried a few over the last coupla years (have a cupboard full of defunct stuff) and this is so well made.

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

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.
