GSI javamill

Remember the old GSI grinder that was shaped like a flying saucer?  That was a grinder that I first found in Moab, and really was the first I'd seen that was portable enough to take on travels and adventures.  But unwieldy.  I once sat in the back seat of a 4WD truck on the bumpiest road in Colombia, and ground a pound of coffee for a farmer I was on my way to visit, gnarling my knuckles in the process.

This new redesign by GSI is a dramatic change from that first version, and I really like it.  The barrel is small and manageable.  Hold it with one hand and grind with the other - the action seems smoother and the ceramic burrs are supported in two places for less rocking and better grind consistency.  To use, simply pull the handle/lid assembly off and pour in the coffee.  The grinder will only hold 25 grams of coffee, so it's definitely a compact, one-cup grinder.  The ground coffee falls into a cup at the bottom of the grinder, which is removed by pulling straight off.  The handle turns over for easy packing down to 6.25"H x 2.75"W at 265 grams.  (And my knuckles look so pretty I could be a hand model.)
