We have been on the hunt for a great value electric grinder for filter brewing at home for months. Finally we are confident that one can do the job for home brewers of any skill level, making quality brewing accessible for under £100 excluding VAT. This brewer, which comes in at £135.00 with VAT performs brilliantly at the low levels of overall output that you find in most homes or light commercial environments. In fact, it does so well that it has been approved by the European Brewing Centre on all aspects of key performance that a grinder would be evaluated on: grind distribution, adjustability, retention, heat generation and too its suitability for cupping and brewing in what are deemed to be a wide range of brewing environments.
Please note, this is not an espresso grinder. Those would require a different specification of build and engineering, to produce finer particles at a relatively tight grind distribution, without also slowing the typical espresso workflow down. This is though one excellent grinder for a wide range of brew methods such as: turkish coffee pots (ibriks); stovetop coffee makers (moka pots); cafetieres (French Presses); pour-over brewers (V60s, Clever Drippers, Chemex brewers, Kalitas), and even siphon or cloth filter brewers. This is not even an exhaustive list.
The grinder is easy to adjust, easy to clean and even comes with a timer switch for convenient dosing and ‘dialling in’ for filter coffee brewing. Another huge positive is that the motor runs at a slow speed relative to the grind chamber’s size. This means grinding doesn’t produce excessive amounts of heat, which would typically cause detriment to your recipe’s performance.

I emailed North Star before my purchase with a few questions. I got an answer the same day, and was reassured about the warranty. Great service!
The grinder is fantastic for the price! So easy to use, and does what is says on the tin.
