Keep this grinder as a handy back-up for an unexpected power outage - you'll thank us later!

Features & Functionality of the GSI Outdoors Java Mill Portable Coffee Grinder

  • Detachable Parts: Remove the handle, silicone grip, grounds container and top of the grinder for easy adjustments and cleaning.
  • Portable: Because the handle is removable, you can easily change the direction in which it sits. Lock the handle horizontally with the silicone grip pointing up for low resistance grinding. When the trail is calling you name, lock the handle vertically against the grinder with the orange grip facing down for a storage friendly shape.
  • Small Bean Storage: The "bean hopper" portion of this portable grinder can hold up to 2 ounces of whole beans.
  • Adjustable Grind: Turn the rotating lever (inside the grounds container) clockwise for a finer grind and counterclockwise for a coarser grind.
  • BPA Free - The Java Mill is constructed of BPA free copolyester.
  • Resistance - As with most manual grinders, the finer the grind the more muscle power you will need during the grinding process.

How long does it take to grind a (coffee) scoop of beans?
charu k on Sep 23, 2014
Best Answer: i drink my morning cup from a large mug and like it fairly strong so I use 2 scoops of a "standard" coffee scoop. i'm grinding one rotation of the adjuster finer than the setting it came preset at. i used the logo on the side of the grinder as a guide. it takes about 2 minutes to grind the coffee. then i toss it into my Bonavita and brew for 5 minutes.

DissapointedReview by Lori
Loved the grinder. used it 1 x daily for three weeks and then the plastic cracked. I read many other reviews saying the same thing. I wish it was made better because I loved it until it broke. (Posted on 1/29/2016)
Great for occasional useReview by Robert
I work overseas and am always travelling. This grinder is good for me because it's small enough to toss in my bag and doesn't require power. It works great for a cup or two at a time. Doesn't take more than a minute to get enough ground. The grind settings are easy to figure out and are consistent.
The only issue I've had with it is the top. You pull the top off to load beans, then as you push the lid back on it has to line up or you risk cracking the plastic. I've used it just over fifty times and there's already a crack, but it's still working fine. I'm thinking about wrapping it in duct tape to stop the crack from spreading and for extra grip.
Overall, I'm satisfied with the grinder and will continue to use it, but I can't say it's a good choice for more than a cup here and there. Look from something else if you're wanting a daily use hand grinder. (Posted on 12/23/2014)
