SFAF Pledge acquired a Clara’s Coffee manual ceramic grinder for a camping review. Over the summer, these grinders will be used extensively in the camping grounds of our great nation.
The grinder is a simple grinder. Small, light weight, all stainless steel and easy to use. This is the quintessential travel grinder. There are no glass parts to break and the grinder would easily slip into an overnight bag or backpack for camping. It is essentially a stainless steel tube with some ceramic burrs at the bottom.
The handle on the Clara’s Coffee grinder is stamped steel, and while thin, it is adequate and should not bend unless you put undue force on the handle. The knob on the grinding handle is larger than the other grinders and easier to grasp. The grinding handle simply slips over a hex shaped fitting on the burr shaft. This make the handle easy to remove for storage but if you apply upward pressure while grinding you can slip the handle off mid crank.
