Manual Coffee Grinder by #ThePurpleTractor Review

purple tractor
If you love fresh ground coffee and you like camping, you need to check out the Manual Coffee Grinder by The Purple Tractor. This portable coffee grinder is not only cute, but it’s also effective. I received my very own Manual Coffee Grinder for this review. I was excited to bring it with us on our recent camping trip because we were going to a non-electric site and we pretty much use only whole bean coffee.

The grinder is really easy to use. You just pull off the top cap, pour in the beans and put the top back on, add the turner to the top and turn several times. Then you pull the bottom off to get your grounds out. Super easy.

The grinder is capable of holding 30-40 grams of whole coffee beans and also achieving grinds for every brew method. The consistent grind size allows you to get maximum flavor out of your favorite roast every time. Once you’ve ground up all of your beans, you can empty them into your brewer. We used a french press. The flavor of the coffee was great.

After everything is said and done, the grinder can be cleaned easily. The stainless steel is rust free, so this will be able to be used on many a camping trip in the future.
