Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.

I've just seen there's a new, version two of the Porlex Mini and Tall hand grinders. I know these are not incredibly high end, but many people enjoy them vs some of the less expensive Hario hand grinders and such. I have the original Tall, with the slotted handle (the second version of the handle). The new grinder claims a whole host of improvements in every sense.

Has anyone seen or used the new versions? Impressions? I don't even know when they came out. I'm looking for something decent and not wildly expensive for my girlfriend to get into V60's at home.

Cheers.

The improvements seem fairly minor, especially compared to a metal burr.

These days there are better options at the same or even lower price point. I'd rather try something like https://www.amazon.com/XEOLEO-grinder-P ... 07MX7MM1L/

Thanks for bringing that XEOLEO to my attention. It looks shockingly well made for the price. Unfortunately it doesn't ship to Canada, and isn't available on Amazon.ca , as is typical. Bummer :(
