Here is a product review for Brilliante Manual Coffee Grinder from my daughter, Holly:
I was asked to do a review of this handheld coffee grinder. As a coffee enthusiast, I was happy to oblige. Normally, I always bought my coffee pre-ground, or used Keurig cups, so this was a new experience either way.
One of the positives of this product was clear off the bat – it’s a small, compact design, so it’s perfectly easy to store just about anywhere. It also offers the ability to grind your coffee into different levels of coarse or fine, which is also helpful if you’re looking to have a variety of options for your brew. I was looking to do a cold-brew coffee, so having the ability to get a coarse grind was a huge benefit! I tried it on two of the levels, and it did make a big difference, and the coffee grinds pretty well through it.
There were also a few negatives. The most obvious one being that, since this is a hand cranked grinder, it requires a lot of effort and muscle to get the job done. Secondly, as most handheld devices tend to be, it was a bit unfriendly to a left handed user, as I felt that it was awkward for me to turn the handle the way the instructions asked. Overall, I will likely keep using the product any time I was to have a fresher pot of coffee.
