The PHAROS is a very aggressive hand mill. Speeds as low as 1 gram per turn the espresso range with slightly slower grinding on coarser settings. The upper bean chamber holds 21 grams of beans and the lower chamber holds more than you could ever use at one brew session.
The OE PHAROS comes with full instructions.
An upgrade kit IS available (requires separate purchase) to change your Pharos 1.1 into the newest model, Pharos 2.0. If you do not want to DIY the kit, please purchase a Pharos 2.0 ... With the kit you get everything, functionally, that the Pharos 2.0 has - the difference is a decal for the index on the top plate (instead of laser engraved index), and you'll have an unused hole in the bottom plate (not visible unless you look under the spring plate!).
