Inspired Kathy’s Review:
I don’t drink coffee so I don’t use this as a coffee grinder. It does however work great for grinding herbs, spices and seeds which is what I use it for. You can adjust how coarse or how finely this grinds. Easy to use it is perfect for grinding up a small amount of herbs, spices, seeds or even nuts. Cleans up nicely. Slim design makes it easy to grip while turning handle.

Do you love great coffee and want to grind your specially selected beans to perfection with a grinder that will do an even, consistent grind?
The Brillante BR-MCG-SS1 manual coffee grinder is ready whether your preferred brewing method is pour over, French press, espresso or Turkish. The SS1 is superior in design to other well known brand models (yes, we’ve tested H—o models) because it’s size makes it easier to grip while grinding and the stainless steel construction produces less static than all-plastic bodied grinders.
You can even use the SS1 for grinding some types of spices if you like. It’s intended for coffee but if you’d like to use it as a spice grinder you’ll find it useful for that as well.
The BR-MCG-SS1 model grinder has a ceramic conical style burr which is easily adjustable using the knob attached to the ceramic burr (on the underside of the hopper). The adjustment has handy “clicks” to help you keep track of your favorite grind setting.
The hopper has a capacity of approx. 38 grams / 6 Tbsp so you’ll be able to grind enough coffee beans for 2 people (i.e. 2 mugs) in about 1 minute 20 seconds.
The sturdy, stainless steel body of the grinder gives it a clean, polished look and helps avoid the static build up you’ll find in some of the plastic bodied grinders. It is also slim and lightweight so it’s a great travel coffee grinder to pack on your adventures.
