The Fellow Shimmy coffee sieve is a simple way to remove micro fines for better-tasting coffee.

Many affordable coffee grinders produce fines (very small grind particles) that can have a negative effect on the coffee that you brew. Fines can muddy flavours and will over-extract adding bitterness to coffee and reducing clarity. 

If your grinder is a culprit for inconsistent grind sizes, Shimmy Coffee Sieve has arrived to shake things up. This easy tool sifts out all coffee particles under 200 microns for better grind consistency and even extraction during your brew—important elements that noticeably impact flavour.

Pair the Fellow Shimmy coffee sieve with your pour-over, Aeropress or Cafetiere to instantly upgrade your everyday brewing routine and the quality of your coffee.

Features include:

Grind Capacity: 80 grams
Filter Size: 200 μm metal filter
Dimensions: 75 mm (L) x 60 mm (W) x 197.7 mm (H)
Materials: Plastic body, lid, and bottom cap, silicone gaskets, and 304 stainless steel filter

The seven percent club.

I bought this to use primarily with my aeropress and was curious to see just how much grind is made up of fines. Well, I've only had it a week or so but it's consistently removing around seven percent, which I think it's a significant amount. Has it changed the flavour of the coffee? Undoubtedly. For the better? Possibly, I'm not sure I've quite got it right yet? It's a more uniform flavour. I'm getting more distinguishable flavours coming through but I feel the brew has lost something as well. Some depth maybe? Some background flavours? That said, I still have the fines to use if I want to and will be experimenting with adding them later in the brew process to see if I can recover the depth without over extraction. (I'm a lover of tinkering, so this is right up my street)
Was it worth it? Fifty quid does seem a lot for a small piece of plastic with a little metal sieve, however, it does it's job very well and if it improves my brew then it's actually a cheaper upgrade than just about anything else.
My grinder, just got the record, is a Kinu. So it's not like I'm using a cheap chopper for my beans. If you love to experiment or feel there's more flavour to be had, I'd recommend getting one of these for sure.
