Kinu M47 Simplicity Manual Coffee Grinder


Roast Levels

Inside the Kinu M47 Simplicity lies the same, precise burr grinder as the Kinu Classic. It also has the same innovative thumb stopper and the easy to fill, top loading hopper. It’s also lighter, weighing in at 1.65kg, about 200g lighter than the classic. So what’s the difference between them?

  1. The hopper uses a food safe, ABS plastic instead of stainless steel
  2. The basin where the grounds are kept uses the same ABS plastic instead of stainless steel
  3. Instead of magnets holding the basin in, a silicone O-ring holds it in place with an air-tight fit

Take manic control over your pour over with a manual coffee grinder

With the Kinu M47 Simplicity you get the same over-engineered masterpiece as the more expensive Classic with which you can have manic control over your pour over coffee and espresso grind sizes. If you are ok with less metal, and no magnets then you can have grinder that is lighter in weight and on your wallet.

Here I talk through the differences between the Kinu M47 Simplicity, Kinu Pheonix, and Kinu Classic.
