  • Orphan Espresso Apex Manual Coffee Grinder


    here's my setup...


    Launched onto the market in November 2018.

    I've bought OE grinders in the past, and haven't had an issue, so just picked one of these hunks up for just under £300 new, but is it worth the retail £525 UK price tag?

    With 78 to 75mm flat 'Ghost' burrs; is it a good deal?:
    The hopper holds around 80grms of beans


    • Hardened Stainless Steel nested Deep Cut Triangular Prism Tooth Burr Set
    • Rotational Burr 78 mm, Stationary Burr 75 mm
    • Stepped Grind Adjustment 20 Steps
    • Not suitable for Espresso or Turkish Grind
    • Made in Taiwan

    The Orphan Espresso Apex is the world's first and only flat burr manual coffee grinder! The Apex uses a Ghost Tooth Burr set, and when combined with the moderate speed of manual grinding, the result is a clean, and uniform grind.
    The Apex hand grinder is designed for all coffee brewing methods (but NOT suitable for Espresso or Turkish coffee).



    FEATURES

    • Hardened Stainless Steel nested Deep Cut Triangular Prism Tooth Burr Set - commonly called a "Ghost Tooth Burr" (Rotational Burr 78 mm, Stationary Burr 75 mm)
    • Stepped grind adjustment has 20 steps for grinding from fine through coarse settings
    • 1 to 4 Planetary Gear Drive delivers optimum speed for efficient operation
    • True Left or Right Hand operation - The ghost tooth burr delivers the same excellent grind result in either rotational direction. In fact, due to burr geometry counterclockwise grinding is slightly easier - perfect light roasts or hard beans (but it is not quite as fast in this direction)
    • Affix to work top for one handed operation, or use the supplied reusable, non-marking, silicone anti-slip gel pads for smooth counter top placement
    • EPD coated aluminum Chassis with Roller Bearing Mounted Stainless Steel axle for stable burr alignment, and strength (5 bearing sets are in the Apex!)
    • EPD coated Cast Zinc Body/Base
    • Removable Silicone Base cover
    • Hand Made Glass Catch Cup





    how to clean:


    for 20g of beans, it will take around 1min to grind; will post more feedback soon...
