Detailed Commentary

I got this for a grinding for my vac pot, since I don't want to keep readjusting the grinder I use for espresso.

Hand mills grind very slowly, especially for finer grinds. This is the only one that will grind fast enough for espresso. In fact, I use it sometimes when I need decaf and the espresso grinder is already full of regular beans. It will actually grind fine enough to choke my espresso machine! For a drip coffee ground, it will ground enough for a 8 cup pot of coffee in a couple of minutes.

It's much larger than I expected, and needs to be clamped on the side of the countertop. So it gets in the way as I can't pushed to a corner when I'm done. But since it's clamped, and has a much larger handle, it's very easy to crank fast, unlike the other Zassenhaus mills.

It's a good choice if you have the room, want a quiet grinder, and don't wnat to spend forever grinding your coffee. It's expensive for a hand mill, but actually cheaper than a good electric grinder like the Maestro.

Buying Experience

Sweetmarias sells out of these rather quickly. So grab them while you can.
