About Antique Coffee Grinder
Society's lust for a good cup of coffee is as current as it is eternal, and nothing keeps you connected to the many generations of coffee lovers past like a handsome, robust antique German coffee grinder. An antique grinder with a brawny iron crank and aged wooden box is a decorative conversation-starter, although many antique grinders also still work quite well. The German grinder manufacturer Zassenhaus, for example, has made a full line of top-quality manual coffee grinders since 1867, and remains an industry leader on the hand-grinder market. A vintage Zassenhaus might very well grind coffee every bit as effectively as one that is brand new, depending on its condition. Such is the beauty and romance of these hand-powered tools, that no matter how old they are, they continue to the get the job done. The large inventory on eBay includes a variety of vintage grinder styles and types, including handheld Turkish mills, box-type lap-mills, heavy-duty table-mounting grinders, and more. With the digital era of drive-thru convenience pushing many of the tactile pleasures of a self-determined life into obsolescence, an antique coffee grinder keeps the hands-on spirit of yesteryear alive.
