Make yourself the coffee you deserve with a Hario Ceramic Coffee Grinder.

New year, new resolutions right? No more consuming endless cups of calorific coffees costing you a fortune.  Instead, if you're anything like us, you'll have gone all natural in January, taking things back to basics as it were.

The thing is, as appealing as a Starbucks Grande Caramel Macchiato sounds, it weighs in at 269 calories and pot and god only knows how much sugar is in those syrups.  Instead, we've gone back to basics in the version office, grinding our own beans, frothing our own milk, adding our own cinnamon (apparently that's good for you!?) and we've been doing it with the help of our new favourite gadget, a Hario Ceramic Coffee Mill.

This thing is a) a thing of beauty and b) surprisingly satisfying to use.  It's hard to explain but there's something very therapeutic and satisfying about grinding your own beans manually.  The smell is fantastic and you know there's no crap in what you're about to drink.

The great thing about this is it doubles up as an air-tight jar, meaning you can grind a load of beans in advance and store the results in here and you'll lose none of the quality.   You can even set the grinder to grind coarse or fine so you can make it just how you like it.  

This particular grinder retails at £45.99 and considering it works great and LOOKS great, that's a steal.   hario.co.uk have a range of grinders costing between £30 and £90 so there's something for everyone and we can't recommend them highly enough.
