The spoon is great for scooping beans out of the coffee bean bag and pouring into the grinder. The spoon also has an “alligator” type clip that clips the coffee bag closed to keep in the freshness of the coffee beans. Clipping the bag is the same principle as when people clip the top of their bag of potato chips shut.
The Steel Coffee Manual Stainless Steel Grinder comes in 5 pieces. It’s designed to disassemble easily. There are a couple of reasons for this.
It’s necessary to pull the hand crank and the top “lid” off to pour the beans (with the complimentary spoon) into the top of the grinder. This is the loading hopper of the grinder where the coffee beans come in contact with the ceramic burr. Once the beans are poured, the lid and hand crank are placed back on and the user turns the crank clockwise to grind the beans.
Once the clockwise rotation feels less resistant, pop the bottom collection cylinder off to access the finished grinds. That’s it. That’s all there is to enjoying freshly ground coffee.
