    Works well with very few and minor draw backs

    I love: - it grinds beans to an even size - it's small - it's affordable - the grind is adjustable - it's pretty easy to use - it doesn't make much noise at all, in comparison to my old blade grinder and other electric burr grinders I've used - you can leave it to grind while you do something else for a minute - it is a lot faster to grind a full hopper of beans than my hand-crank conical burr grinder. Still getting used to: - you have to use a fair amount of force to twist open the hopper part, and you have to remember it's the opposite of "lefty loosey righty tighty" - when you go to open and close the tray (to pour out your grinds) it's easy to accidentally also move the grind courseness adjustment, just remember which dot you like it on. Super happy with this product. When shopping for one I knew I wanted a conical burr grinder (flat burr ones don't product even size grinds in my experience) but I couldn't bring myself to spend $150 or more on one. And I store my coffee beans in airtight container so I didn't want a big thing that is for storing your beans too. This one fits the bill in so many ways. Also, I was impressed that the company literature says they've been around since 1961...that's a while!

    Burr grinder - single cup flavor and fun

    This is a burr grinder (other sites will tell you a burr grinder has to be over $150 - not true) that needs an outlet for power (it's not battery operated). As others mentioned, it's not the fastest grinder, but it is quiet, and works great for a single cup of great-tasting fresh ground joe (way better flavor than those mass produced k-cups). I use it with the "brew your own" re-usable Keurig k-cup filter. The grinder holds enough whole beans for my 14 oz. travel mug. While I've not yet tried to grind more, it seems like you'd need to grind two batches to have enough to brew a small pot. Adjustable grind is nice, and grind level per setting is consistent. This let's you tinker a bit with the flavor to get it "just right" for your liking. Occasionally it leaves a half of a bean in the grinder, even with a bit of tapping / shaking. All in all, if you are seeking a better cup o' joe, you are brewing a single cup (or two), the extra minute or two for grinding whole beans with this grinder is more than worth the wait.

    Attractive and compact

    I had hoped to use this grinder to grind flaxseeds to pour over my morning cereal, but on the finest setting, hardly any seeds were ground even after over minute of grinding and on the coarser settings, the seeds would come out untouched. This grinds coffee beans really well, though it's quite a bit slower than my larger grinder and of course, can only grind a small amount at a time. Make sure to turn the bottom ring to pour out the grinds. I pulled it out instead and made quite a mess (it helps to read the instructions fully!). The grinder is easy to clean, but it would be nice if it came with a small brush to clean out the grinds from inside the hopper. Overall, I really like this product and would recommend it to anyone looking for a compact, low-volume grinder.

    Great, quiet, good features, just slow

    There's a lot I like about this grinder -- the features on being able to change the size of the grind is great, and the place at the bottom where the grounds collect is really convenient to pour out of and to clean easily. I also love that this grinder is much quieter than other conventional grinders I have had! Just two drawbacks with this one for me. In order to grind enough beans to use in my pour over, I had to grind in two batches -- all the beans wouldn't fit in the grinder. And second, it is slooooooow. Definite minutes passed before everything was all ground. It was ground really well and the coffee was delicious, but boy did it take forever.

    Consistent Grind at Multiple Sizes

    Brim’s Electric Handheld Burr Grinder is just what I wanted! With its wide range of settings, it consistently grinds my coffee beans to the exact size I need. I’ve used it to grind beans for my pour-over coffee maker and my French press, and both results were perfect. Plus, it looks great on my counter. The one downside is that I have a little trouble removing the bottom tray (although I suspect I’ll get better at it as I get used to it). Overall, though, I’m quite pleased with this grinder.

    Good grinder for a little bit of coffee

    You can't grind a ton of coffee at one time, but it's great for one or two people. My wife and I use it for our french press. One full grind will give us enough coffee to fill up the press, so we just grind fresh every time we make coffee. If you're good with just making coffee to fill up a to-go mug each, and you don't want a grinder that takes up space, it's great. If you want to grind enough to store coffee to use throughout the week, you'll for sure want to go with a bigger grinder.

    It was hard to find a small high quality burr coffee grinder. Purchased this as a gift and after seeing it in action, turned around and bought one for myself. It grinds @ 6-8 tablespoons of coffee at one time (depending on how fine the grind). I usually only have one or two cups in the morning so this is perfect.

    Great little coffee grinder. Emphasis on little... It takes a couple batches to grind enough coffee for me to use. And it takes quite a bit of time, but you know what they say, great things come to those who wait. All in all, it does a great job, it's easy to clean, and easy to store

    After reading all about bur grinders and there better grind quality I was not impressed with this grinder. The grounds after being run through had a static cling effect which made it difficult to get the grounds out of the container at the bottom. Overall not impress.

    This grinder is easy to load, and I really like the easy to poor base. It makes a nice grind without burning the beans. It takes more time to grind, but I can definitely tell the difference in the flavor. I think it’s well worth the wait!

    The exact perfect size! The Brim Handheld Grinder is ideal for my small apartment kitchen. It barely takes up any counter space but still provides consistent grinds every time.

    Great little grinder that looks good also. It is not fast, but the grind is even and achieved at low temperature so as not to alter the bean flavor. Easy to clean. Highly recommended.

    Grinds the coffee very well but a little loud. I can definitely taste the difference between this and one of those electric blades.

    I got this grinder to go with a pour over coffee kit. Together they make a great pair. Freshly ground beans adds so much to your coffee!
