Hario’s newest hand coffee mill is a departure from the rounded, curved lines for which the company has become known. The smoky, clear acrylic, silver accents and boxy angles are a great stylistic fit with the V60 acrylic coffee stand, though, and the inner workings are pure Hario.
SECURE COFFEE GRINDING
The new coffee grinder features adjustable ceramic grinding burrs just like Hario’s popular Skerton coffee mill, but it has a few modifications the Skerton lacks: namely, a securable lid to keep your coffee beans from flying out of the grinder when you crank the handle and a lever that affixes the grinder to any smooth surface so it doesn’t skid around as you try to grind your coffee. Because really, you shouldn’t have to chase your coffee beans or your coffee grinder around the kitchen before you have your coffee.
The new Hario MXR-2TB also has an impressively small footprint. The rectangular grinder is about the size of a small paperback book, making it easy to store on a shelf or tuck into a briefcase or suitcase. The crank handle detaches and stores in a slot in the side of the grinder’s casing. Despite its small size, it will grind up to 40g of coffee into a transparent slide-out acrylic drawer.

Founded in 1921, the Japanese company has been manufacturing high-quality glassware for both consumer and industrial uses since its inception. From the beginning, founder Hiromu Shibata focused on quality craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology. Over the years, Hario has introduced numerous technological advances in glass manufacture and creation, but the company has never lost sight of traditional hand-crafted quality. Today, Hario produces a range of high-quality heat-resistant glass products and other products that are as beautiful as they are well-made. Their range of coffee equipment includes elegant coffee drippers and the Hario Buono gooseneck kettle, which offers superior control and balance for brewing pourover coffee. In addition, Hario offers a range of manual coffee grinders, drip coffee makers and syphon coffee makers that are as manufactured with attention to quality, style and detail.
