This Ultra-Durable Grinder Brings Premium Coffee To The Backwoods

Presented by

While a hot cup of coffee is a great way to start your day, the beverage has never been particularly conducive to off-grid use, and the few mobile systems that do exist typically lack durability and simply don’t produce a very decent cup of joe. Enter: the VSSL JAVA, a premium, ultra-rugged, travel-friendly handheld coffee grinder that produces a genuine cup of barista-grade beverage.

Utilizing Vessel’s signature aerospace-grade aluminum construction cylinder housing design — which is damn-near indestructible — the VSSL JAVA features best-in-class stainless steel burrs smoothly guided by dual high-grade mini radial ball bearing sets. Tipping the scales at just 360 grams (or 0.8lbs), this rugged cylindrical grinder offers a 20-gram capacity for beans and an average grind time of less than a minute, while the bottom of the device sports an adjustable dial that affords a whopping 30 different grinder settings ranging from coarse to ultra-fine. Protected by a full lifetime manufacturer’s warranty, this outdoor item also boasts a quick-release top with an integrated screw-down carabiner clip that packs an impressive 200lb test weight and doubles as the system’s hand-crank for operating the grinder. What’s more, the grinder is adorned in a matte black finish with anodized copper accents and its design includes a clever threadless end-cap. Available now exclusively through our friends at Huckberry, the VSSL Java Handheld Coffee Grinder is priced at $145.
