If you're wondering what a crowdsourced coffee grinder is, this is it! Naturally, a smaller team put the final polished product together, but the design process involved the consideration of 180 submissions, providing invaluable aesthetic and functional suggestions. The Handground team explains that every piece of material, every subtle mechanism and every millimeter measurement was treated with the utmost precision and thought, resulting in a countertop contraption that coffee drinkers can't help but love.

The implications of this method of design might require a great deal of time and organization, but the effort is totally worth it. Born from a Kickstarter campaign, the crowdsourced coffee grinder project was fully funded in less than a day. Its 20 preset coarseness settings and its lens-inspired midsection were exactly what consumers asked for.
