Whether grinding beans into fine powder for a high-end espresso machine or a coarse ground for a French press, this manual coffee mill delivers consistent, uniform grounds for a perfect brew every time. A fixture in coffee shops, private homes and cafés since 1867, Zassenhaus mills feature a step-less grinding adjustment that allows grounds to be fine-tuned to the perfect consistency. Manual grinding helps prevent heat build-up, allowing even the most delicate differences in region, varietal or roast to shine in every cup.
I have been using a French press for several years and had considered purchasing a manual coffee mill for a long time but never found one I liked until I saw this on the Sur La Table website. At first, it seemed a bit pricy, but it also looked sleek and seemed well-crafted compared to other versions. Now that I have been using it once or twice a day for more than a week, I must say that not only does the coffee taste better, but I really love using it. Although it does take a few extra minutes to grind the beans, this mill has enhanced my coffee-making experience, and I relish every cup of coffee! To me, this coffee mill is an excellent investment and a great value. I highly recommend it if you love a good cup of coffee
A long time! I bought this thinking I would grind my coffee each morning instead of using my larger burr grinder. No way, it takes a while and is pretty tiring. I am glad I did not pay full price. I will keep it for travel, but doubt I will use it often
