Antique Style Coffee Grinder in Spalted Maple 1

$350.00

Antique Style Coffee Mill in Spalted Maple

This handmade antique style coffee grinder mechanism features a 2:1 grind ratio so that means for every 2 turns of the handle the burr grinder turns once. This gives you the leverage for an easy grind. Just like its close cousin, the antique style peppermill, this coffee grinder is a charming addition to any country kitchen. It’s functional as well as artistic.

It features cast metal working parts with bronzed housing and a burr-type grinder. Overall grinder size is 6″ x 4 1/2″ x 10″ tall. This coffee grinder has a nice range of grinds and will provide a coarse to an almost Turkish-like fine grind.  The grinder is fully adjustable from fine to coarse with the top hexagon nut. I harvested this spalted maple wood locally and chose to feature this great piece of maple because of the contrasting dark spalted lines that are typical of decaying wood.  Decaying… you say?  Yes! It’s sort of like bleu cheese. If it’s harvested at the right time it’s perfection. If it’s harvest too late, it’s punky and useless.  Once it’s finished, the decay process ceases, but the dark zone-lines remain which adds to the character. These dark spalt-lines are natural and cannot be repeated the same way twice. This makes the piece truly unique. Spalting gives the piece a certain three-dimensionality.  Spalting also requires more work in stabilizing the wood and thus it costs a bit more than some of the other native wood I use. I personally guarantee your satisfaction. To maintain the beautiful high gloss finish on this grinder I recommend an automotive-style paste wax with carnauba.  The wax not only cleans but protects. (Please note: This antique-style coffee grinder can also be used to grind peppercorns or other spices, but it should not be used to grind salt.)
