I wanted to like the Handground, their concept seemed so well thought out, the bevel gear system which turns the burr axially, reducing wobble. It seemed destined for great things, but unfortunately the build quality and tolerance of the grinder was very disappointing. It came out of the box grinding way too coarse (the finest was coarser than a cold brew grind), they supply shims to adjust it, but it just feels odd that a brand new product would require adjustment out of the box. The worst thing though? Even after adjustment, it's way too coarse! I typically grind my drips at 5.5-6.5 on a 10 scale, the Handground has an 8 scale I think, and I'm grinding at 2.5-3. There are tons of fines in the grind, and the grind consistency is unfortunately not on par with other grinders in the market. The only thing that I like about Handground is that you can grind quicker with the bevel crank, but even that is an extremely awkward process because you have to press down quite firmly on the grinder to prevent it from moving. I have to press my other elbow on the top of the grinder while I turn the crank in order to get any decent cadence.
Also, I disagree with the others, a French press isn't necessarily a bad brew method, you just have to learn the proper technique (and a French press coffee is a much harder technique to get the hang of than a drip). The agitation process of brewing a French press becomes extremely important because you no longer have that continuous flow of water to agitate it. Take a spoon and paddle it in the press in a fore-aft motion (not swirls!), then turn 90 degrees and repeat. Do this every now and then to ensure that the grounds don't settle for too long at the bottom of the press. Before you plunge, give it a nice big swirl so that the grounds get suspended completely in your coffee before being pressed down by the plunger. And remember, the more you agitate, the shorter you steep (so that's some efficiency for your daily morning routine there).
