E-Prance Manual Coffee Mill Review
For around £13-20 the E-Prance model is one of the most affordable manual coffee grinders on the UK market right now. For those of you who like to grind your beans by hand, this will make a very good choice.
It sells on a consistent basis, looks really good and is certainly stylish. It has a lot of buyer reviews over at Amazon and has achieved and maintained a very good rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars from actual buyers. That is a high rating reached over a consistent period of time.
This is of course a manual grinder that can produce enough grains to make up to 3 cups of coffee. So clearly that tells you that is suitable for grinding a small amount of coffee. That is always the best thing to do as you then have fresh coffee, as and when you need it.
It can grind around 30 grams of coffee grains.It uses a ceramic blade and there are no plastic parts that could otherwise flavour the natural taste of the coffee bean. You can also adjust this one from coarse and all the way down to a fine grain.

Summary & Conclusion
This one is, in my opinion, all about the price. It is a hard price to beat and for that money, it works pretty well. However, this is really only suitable for people who don't mind the manual work of grinding coffee beans.
It takes 5-10 minutes to grind to a fine grain. If you are willing to put that effort in then this one will work out ok for you. If you like to make the odd cup of coffee, and you like your beans to be freshly ground, then this on can do that. I guess I am just lazy so I simply prefer a fast burr grinder.
Buyers who gave this lower ratings did so because it took too long to grind. Some also thought the grain was not fine enough. In my opinion those are complaints that you can attribute to any hand or manual grinder.
They do take a bit of work but they do work. As I mentioned this one is all about the affordable price, and you will struggle to find anything cheaper in the UK market.

Overall this is a popular choice for many buyers of manual coffee grinding mills. That popularity is down to the fact that it does a very good job of grinding coffee and can also grind nuts and spaces.
So those attributes along with an affordable price make it a popular choice for many people.
It looks the part and I think it is stylish so will suit many modern and contemporary kitchens. It is a good choice for those who just want a grinder to use as and when they fancy a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
