Using a Hand Crank Coffee Grinder
Hand crank coffee grinders were the first ones used by our ancestors long ago. Today, most people opt to use an electric grinder or a mill in order to chop whole java beans. You can still purchase hand crank coffee grinders, though, and some people still prefer to use them. One advantage is that you can still have a fresh, great tasting cup of java in the event of a power failure
- If you're considering buying a manual coffee grinder, or maybe if you got a great deal on one at an auction or garage sale, you might be wondering how to use it. If so, you've come to the right place for the answers you need
- First off, it might be helpful to learn that coffee grinders come in two different types. One type chops the java beans up by using two steel blades. The blades turn in a circle and chop the beans. The other type grinds the whole beans up by using burrs that work together to do the job. Both the steel blades and the burrs are adjustable from fine to coarse settings. It doesn't matter what type of hand crank coffee grinder you might have. The basic instructions are still pretty much the same. But, the burr type is said to be easier to use and produces a more evenly ground coffee
- To start with, make sure your coffee grinder is thoroughly clean, especially if you bought it used. You don't want any contaminants getting into your ground coffee. You can remove some parts and safely wash them with hot, soapy water. Usually, there are screws on the top that hold the internal parts in place. If the outside base is wood, just use a damp cloth to wipe it off. Or, use a wood cleaner. Do not immerse it into water or you can ruin the wood! Dry the machine and the parts thoroughly and reassemble them again
- Then, before you even start grinding your coffee beans, you'll need to adjust your machine. To do this, find the adjuster which is located on the top. Gently turn it in a counter-clockwise direction until it won't turn any more. Now, gently turn the adjuster back the other way while you turn the handle. You'll hear the steel blades or the burrs rattling against each other inside. Stop turning the adjuster when you don't hear the blades or burrs making a noise anymore. (You should make a half turn or so when this happens.) Now, add the coffee beans into the opening on the top so they fall into the receptacle. As you turn the crank clockwise, the blades or burrs will grind the whole coffee beans up. The ground beans will then fall into a drawer below. To remove the coffee, all you have to do is simply remove the drawer
- You don't have to wash the internal parts of your hand crank coffee grinder everytime after you use it. In between washings, you can simply add a cup or so of rice to the receptacle. Then, turn the crank and the rice will clean the steel blades and burrs. Then, dispose of the rice and your machine is ready to use! An added bonus is that the rice will help to sharpen the blades and burrs too
How to Grind Coffee:
- Select a grinder. The electric single blade grinders are effective but noisy. They chop up the bean, sometimes producing an uneven grind, and the heat from the blade causes the beans to heat up, losing some of flavor. Burr grinders are like the older grinders, where you fill the hopper with the beans and they pass through the grinders one time. The grind is uniform and adjustments are easier
- Choose between electric and non-electric. Electric is fast but noisy and lacks the hands-on charm of grinding your own beans. The hand grinders take more time and are available in a wide variety of price ranges. Whichever one you decide on, look for the ability to adjust the grind for different brewing methods
- Pick the freshest coffee bean you can find. Look for the roasting date, rather than the expiration date. Coffee beans are best if used within one week of roasting. The beans need to be stored in airtight containers, rather than the bins that most stores use. Coffee beans emit carbon dioxide for about 2 weeks after they are roasted, causing their packaging to expand, so if you see vacuum packaging that conforms tightly to the beans, they are probably not fresh
- Adjust the coffee grinder to the proper grind. Most hand grinders have two adjusting nuts on the handle shaft. By loosening the top one, you are able to adjust the bottom one to the proper grind and then re-tighten the top nut to keep the setting secure. With the whirly grinder, you have to keep an eye on the grind and continue until it chops the beans to the desired size
- Decide on the fineness of the grounds based on the brewing process you are going to use. If you are going to expose the grounds to hot water for a short duration, you need a fine ground. The longer the exposure, the coarser the ground needs to be. If you grind the beans too fine for the brewing method, you expose too much of the surface to hot water, and the result is a bitter taste. However, if the grind is too coarse, the coffee may be weak and watery
