The Porlex is our go-to grinder for travel. It’s sturdy, light and compact. The handle is removable and stores along side the grinder in the silicone sleeve. The ceramic conical burrs create a beautifully uniform grind and are easily adjustable from French Press to espresso. Japanese-made and built to last. Some of us like the Porlex so much we use it at home as our daily grinder. Who needs electricity?
