Using antique coffee grinder is not as easy as an electric one.  So, why would one choose a manual, maybe even cranky version over a easy electric version?


Let me go into the usage first. Personally, I think that the experience of coffee is the entire process, and grinding it manually would provide just that experience. There is something "coffee" about the grinding that produces the "not so fine" grind.

Sure, we all know that these coffee grinders would not produce the ideal coarseness and aroma. But, do note that it is also one of the few grinders that can grind without producing any heat, thus locking in the coffee flavor.

Or, how about that loud grinding sound? The antique coffee grinder is the ONLY grinder that are able to grind without any noise. Doesn't the soft muffing sound and the grinding action sounds romantic?

And, romantic is the word which I would use on antique coffee grinder. There are serveral styles for these grinders, some are wall mounted and some simply sit on your counter top.

Usually made of unpolished wood complete with cast iron handle (used to grind the coffee beans)it compliments any kitchen top setting. Although without the fine lines and cannot be considered sleek, it look a piece of antique collection for admiration, most grinders have designs on the ground collection box and also on the cast iron handle. 

Even within the antique coffee grinder , there are a few variety. One such grinder was first introduced during the 1920's. Different from the traditional grinder, these has sleek designs with clean lines running through the mill, a very clear reflection of the art deco movement.

I mentioned earlier about the wall mounted, and mysterious is the word I would use on these traditional coffee grinders. Being mount on the wall, these grinders features a porcelain background with some olden day scene.

It is difficult (yes, even in ebay, I do not see them at all) to find, so if you see one, seriously consider buying and keeping it. You could either keep it to your collection or turn it around and sell it for a tidy profit!
