OE Pharos 2.0-ISH, the Original, Modern Era Titan Class Manual Coffee Grinder, designed by Orphan Espresso - the Hand Grinder People!
As of the summer of 2023 we are using up the last parts we have to build complete Pharos Grinders - we have enough to make about 12 grinders, which we're calling the Pharos 2.0-ISH. The -ISH part is that you can see in the pictures that the 2.0 had a pointer, and an inscribed index on the top plate. We do not have more inscribed plates. We have no more split collars with pointers, and due to manufacturing constraints we will not have more of these in the future... We're in our workshop in Idaho, so Doug will make these 2.0-Ish as they sell... These will be the last of the Pharos build.
The OE PHAROS 2.0-ISH Manual Coffee Grinder features:
- 68mm Italian made conical commercial steel grinding burr set

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 PHAROS 2.0-ISH is an updated design. It has a removable catch cup directly below the burr, held in place during grinding with a spring plate. If desired, an espresso filter basket, and OE dosing funnel (sold separately) may be used instead of the catch cup. The most important engineering advancement is that the grinding mechanism is now completely incorporated in the top two plates of the machine, factory aligned & set, and is now independent of the frame of the machine.
The OE PHAROS comes with full instructions.
