Aerspeed - the pocket rocket for brew fans.
The Aerspeed is the stripped back racing twin to our most popular grinder, the all round pocket wonder that is the Aergrind.
Offered in a limited run, this is the ideal grinder for those looking to bridge the gap to speciality coffee grinding, with the gains of a faster throughput rate, a wider adjustment range at coarser grinds, and a more approachable price point.
At the heart of the Aerspeed is an Italian burrset with a slightly different profile to the wide ranging Italmill burrs that carry our Nerost black steel treatment. This minor change in profile narrows the adjustment range for espresso which made it unsuitable for use in the Aergrind but opens up a wider range of adjustment from Aeropress through to French press.
The other benefit of this burr-profile tweak is that the burrs engage more bean per rotation increasing the throughput rate - running about 20-25% faster grinding time for a given grind point.
A Turkish grind can be made with the Aerspeed, as can a very competent espresso grind, but dialing in for a specific flavour profile or flow rate will be comparatively restricted.
All grinders are built here in Portobello, Edinburgh with untreated 38mm tool steel burrs and the same knurled metal dial lid, full metal anodized uni-body, stainless steel shaft and adjustment mechanism straight from the Aergrind, all machined in the UK.
As with all our grinders, the Aerspeed features paired steel bearings for both shaft and handle - no hidden cost savings using bushings!
NB Mechanically perfect when shipped, to achieve this price point no Grade 2 seconds are available - very minor finish issues are considered acceptable and will not be eligible for refund as they would be for the Aergrind.
If a minor anodizing flaw, a slight mark on the steel or a light witness mark are likely to deny you sleep or taint your brew then please consider the Aergrind.
