  • NEW AND IMPROVED DESIGN!

    Your beloved Timemore C1 just got better! The C2 is a brilliant addition to Timemore's line of coffee hand grinders. Some plastic components, including the internal body, keep cost down while making this grinder lightweight and increasing the capacity! Not to mention, the same excellent grind quality. With the same sharp steel burrs as in the Timemore Slim and Nano hand grinders, the same spring mechanism that locks the inner burr into position, and two ball bearings that hold the grind shaft in place, you're not losing even a little bit of grind quality. The well-designed handle connection gives this grinder an exceptionally precise grind and a smooth turning handle with every rotation. Lastly, the new and improved grounds bin is lined with aluminum for greater durability and a static free grinding experience.

    • Available in Black, Blue, or Red with Grid-Pattern Grip, or White with Frost-Grip
    • CNC Cut HRC58 Sharp Stainless Steel Burr Set
    • Dual Bearing Concentric Burr Shaft Stabilization
    • Capacity: ~25g
    • Diameter: 45mm
    • Includes a grinder brush

Money Well Spent

Honestly, for $100 this is probably the best manual burr grinder you will get. The burrs grind quickly and the grounds come out consistently sized. Takes about 35secs to grind 25g of medium light roast beans at 14 clicks (for aeropress). Grinder looks and feels nice in the hands. The ball bearings allow for easy and smooth rotations.

Only downfalls for me is the internal chamber is made of a hard plastic that likely causes the spinning mechanism to wobble slightly. (Really not a big deal).

Unfortunately there is still static even with the aluminum lined grounds bin and I need to use the provided brush to give a quick wipe after each grind. But I don’t mind that, makes me feel like a scientist again, ensuring every last molecule of coffee is consumed for its life purpose...

Well worth the $100 and deserves 5 stars at that price point. Comes elegantly packaged and would make a nice gift for the coffee snob in your life.

So smooth and easy to use. Sturdy feel and very fast. 18g in less than 30 seconds for anyone.

Outstanding Grinder

I used the Hario Skerton Pro before buying the Timemore C2. In a battle between these two grinders I'd say that the C2 is the winner. Why?

- The Hario Skerton Pro's grind shift has a slight wobble. When I'd rotate the handle I'd feel an ever so slight rubbing between the burrs. This happened even when I didn't have it set to a very fine grind. For the Hario's price one would expect that something like this would not happen -- or maybe I just have demanding expectations. Anyways, after some reading online I noticed that other users had this issue so it wasn't just me (there's even a company in the US that sells an 'upgrade kit' to stabilize the Pro's grind shaft). The C2's grind shaft and overall build quality is far superior imo. Therefore, I'd recommend that an extra $20 would be well spent moving from the Skerton Pro to the C2.
- The C2 is much easier to hold and grind with.
- The only advantage of the Hario Skerton Pro is that it has a larger hopper and can fit more beans within it. The C2 seems to max out at approximately 20g capacity. Yet the easy fix with the C2 is just complete more than one grind cycle to get larger quantities. Therefore, I'd say that the advantage of the Hario Skerton Pro really isn't too much of an advantage.

Overall, I really like the C2 and would recommended it to friends, family, and strangers over the Internet.

Great little grinder

I am very satisfied with my purchase. From the moment I put my order in to the moment I received it (btw, way sooner than expected) it was a very pleasant experience. Eight Ounce Coffee was there all the way making sure that I was informed and reassured throughout the entire process. The product arrived in perfect condition, packaged consciously for maximum security but minimal environmental impact. Overall I am impressed! I will definitely order again. Needless to say that I am happy with the grinder, which hardly needs any more praises.

Worth It

I started my burr grinder journey with a Hario Mini, but got tired of how long it took to grind. Upgraded to a Bodum Bistro, looking to optimize some time in the morning with an electric grinder, but hated how loud it was. Finally decided to switch back to manual, and was blown away by how quick this grinder is (probably a quarter of the time from my Hario), and how consistent the grind quality was compared to my Bistro. Worth every penny.
