The Porlex tall fits inside the Aeropress. Holds beans. Works well enough for travel. Win.

Def want something higher quality then a porlex. Had one and threw it away, it was impossible to grind the beans I had.

Also the Aergrind fits inside the Aeropress and it is by far a better grinder with quality burrs. It's only a wee bit pricier, so it is my choice (with the Aeropress).

Of course there are better hand grinders, but Aergrinder's price, portability and size make it a clear winner for the Aeropress).

James Hoffmann recently did a good Youtube review on hand grinders.
