We think the Porlex hand grinders are the best quality hand grinders on the market. Porlex grinders have conical ceramic burrs, which ensure a consistent grind and less powder than those that use steel. Ceramic burrs also stay sharp far longer than steel burrs, and they never rust.
Importantly, ceramic burrs don’t conduct heat like steel, so even after a long grind, your ground coffee will never come out hot.
Porlex grinders have a stainless steel housing, so they’re durable, easy to clean, and look fancy on the kitchen bench.
At Cape Coffee we love a good coffee, naturally. We also love the Wet Tropics of Far North Queensland.
Fortunately for us the tablelands that run parallel with the coast from south of Cairns up to Mt Malloy have some of the best coffee growing conditions in Australia and some wonderful, boutique coffee producers.
The AeroPress coffee maker and Bodybrew Bod cold brew coffee system are our coffee making tools of choice and go with us when we're in the rainforest, out on the Great Barrier Reef or visiting the coffee farms.
Watch out for some delicious North Queensland coffee beans in our shop in the near future.
