HOW TO GET STARTED

Most electric coffee grinders last a few years. Some last many. They aren't bad investments and likely a better use of plastic than single-use or short lifespan objects and tools. However, when possible; limiting plastic use is ideal. This coffee grinder is made entirely of wood and steel. The grinding mechanism itself is all cast iron and won't leave any plastic in your coffee.

EMBRACE

  1. Will last a lifetime and likely be an heirloom product that can be passed down through generations
  2. All wood and metal construction means no microplastic shedding into your coffee
  3. if you do have to dispose of the grinder, it won't shed microplastics into the environment

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Are plastic and have ultimately a limited lifetime - they are not bad investments since they have a good lifespan, but non-plastic options exist
  2. Some plastic grinders have plastic grinding components which might lead to plastic getting into your coffee
  3. Not as aesthetically pleasing and clear portions of the grinder can become stained
