Porlex Tall II is a stainless steel manual coffee grinder with conical ceramic burrs.
Porlex II uses its redesigned burrs for a faster, easier, more even grind. Porlex Tall is made & designed in Osaka, Japan and comes in a handy size with a pleasant grip. This grinder is a lovely travel companion.
The ceramic burrs don't heat the coffee during grinding, ensuring that the coffees flavors don't (accidentally) change. Another advantage of the ceramic burr is that it retains its sharpness for a long time as opposed to a steel burr. Ceramic burrs don't rust and can be used for years. They are easily adjusted: from coarse (Cafetière) to very fine (Turkish).
Why is the Porlex II better than the Porlex I?
This new grinder is made from higher quality material, ensuring higher precision and durability. Compared to the Porlex I, this grinder grinds 1,3 times more coffee with the same amount of rotations!
Thanks to the new adjusting nut, the grinding degree can be adjusted more easily and more precisely. Every turn adjusts the size of the grind with 37 microns instead of 80 microns.

Quick guide to set up Porlex II
You adjust the settings by twisting the nut on the underside. If you want a constant grind setting, it's best to work systematically. Turn the burrs to close (zero). Keep turning until you don't hear the click of the nut and click X amount of times for the following settings:
- 1-4: superfine, Turkish, espresso (workout!)
- 5-6: fine filter
- 7-8: medium filter
- 9-10: coarse filter, AeroPress with Pouch | Evermore
