We have a full review on the Timemore Chestnut C3!

New Burr Set

Timemore has introduced its latest "spike to cut" (S2C) technology in the new burrs, which is evident from the vertical lines on the top of the inner burr's cutting surface. This innovation is meant to pre-cut the beans, resulting in a more uniform distribution of ground coffee.

The TimeMore C3 is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a high-quality coffee grinder that can deliver consistent and delicious coffee. With its conical burr grinding system, stepless adjustment, high-speed grinding, and ceramic burrs, the TimeMore C3 is a standout product in the market. Whether you're a seasoned barista or a coffee enthusiast, the TimeMore C3 is a product that you should consider adding to your coffee setup.

Is Timemore C3 worth it?

The Timemore C3 is a remarkable manual coffee grinder that is perfect for both espresso and filter brewing. Despite its low price, it boasts exceptional construction quality and is considered one of the most cost-effective options in the manual grinder market.

The most significant difference between the C2 and C3 is the new burr set. Both models employ 38mm conical steel burrs, however, the design of the burrs has been thoroughly revised in the C3. Timemore has introduced "spike to cut" technology, also known as S2C, in the new burrs. The design features vertical lines on the upper cutting surface of the inner burr that are intended to precut the beans and produce a more uniform distribution of grounds.

Is Timemore Chestnut C3 good for espresso?

The C3 stands out for its ability to consistently produce finely ground coffee, even at its finest setting. However, it is worth noting that the stepped adjustment system makes it a bit challenging to find the optimal grind size. Once you find the appropriate grind, you can further optimize the taste by adjusting the dose and preparing the puck accordingly.
