The Helor 101 is by far one of the smartest hand grinders to hit the market in recent years. It's engineered from the ground up to satisfy the wants and needs of picky coffee enthusiasts, as well as replicate the grind quality of far more expensive commercial grinders as closely as possible. The look and feel make all this obvious, and the unibody aluminum grinder chassis feels extremely solid and precise in the hand, with two steel bearings making for a smooth and stable grind.
The big wooden pommel on the handle is both stylish and comfortable to hold, and the step-less grind adjustment allows you to easily dial in for espresso or dial up to a drip grind with just a few turns of the dial. Both the upper and lower chambers hold between 30-40 grams of coffee - whole beans and ground, respectively.
The Helor is available in two types of burr sets, allowing you to tailor your grinder to whatever your brewing needs may be.
The Contemporary Burr Set is tailored to espresso grinding and similar fine grinds.
The Conventional Burr Set made of steel and featuring curvier cutting surfaces, excels more in the drip range and eagerly cuts through your doses for a quick grind with great results in the cup.
