Does a good job

Yes is loud. Yes is slow.
Are you needing it for a top notch espresso machine? If so, look for something better.
IMO it’s great for aero press, stove top, the Vietnamese filter or for car camping where you might just stick the grinds in a pot and boil for a bit.
Put it on a rubber mat, cover with a towel or put it in the cupboard to reduce the sound. Go have a shower or do the washing while you wait. Hasn’t bothered me yet, although some people’s reviews has me thinking they’re used to a much better machine or their expectations are too high. Overall, a worthy attempt at a portable and reliable grinder. Did I mention I’ve dropped this from height a couple of times but remarkably hasn’t even cracked. Show details

The grinder cannot last more than 2 years

I used this Lume grinder for about one and half year though i am not a heavy user. The grinder just doesn’t function now. Emailed their customer service saying that possible the battery is dead and need to change which costs almost the same amount for the one i purchased.
The light still can be on. Hence probably i can only use it as a torch light perhaps.
It did not continuously grind sufficient amount of coffee beans. You have to press again once it is stop and repeat till it finish grinding

Battery dead in very short time, doesn't seem replaceable

At first it was fine although grinding time is long and have to press the button again every 2 minutes to grind a reasonable amount. However battery started dying rapidly, going from full charge to no charge at rest in a day. Show details

Exceptional

I've been using the Lume coffee grinder every day for a couple of months. I have to say this is my best purchase of coffee gears this year. It's very easy to adjust from coarse to fine based on personal needs. Most importantly, it's portable and battery-driven, which saves my life from hand grinder. Highly recommend!

Waste of time - Coffee Grinder

First Burr broke on second grind. Yes I received a replacement burr. Near on impossible to adjust the grind and it takes 4 rounds of grinding to fill a single shot. Skip this product and this company. Go manual and buy a Rhinowares.

So so disappointed!
