Old fashioned coffee grinders custom made by hand. The boxes are made from select 3/4 inch thick, 100 % solid hardwood and are replicas of the grinders used on the old Texas Chisolm Trail.
The wood is sanded smooth, sealed and stained, then hand rubbed to a beautiful luster with a high grade cabinet makers wax, containing beeswax, orange oil and other natural oils. Contains no silicones, detergents, solvents, turpentine's or other flammable ingredients.
These are heavy duty grinders like the originals from the 1800's and are built to be used everyday. They are roughly 6 inches square and 8 inches tall and weigh about 8 pounds.
The coffee drawer holds enough beans for 6-8 standard coffee scoops, more than enough for a full pot with one grinding. The mill is a premium grade cast iron mill. It is a very strong hand crank, fully adjustable burr type grinder. This is not an espresso press but it does grind walnuts and pepper corns!
Burr grinders extract much more flavor from the coffee bean than electric blade type grinders. Plus the coffee just tastes, and smells better when you grind the beans by hand! (If you love the smell of fresh ground coffee, try grinding some coffee around a campfire!) To grind your beans, a good old-fashioned coffee grinder will do as well as a modern electric version. To guarantee optimal flavor, it is important that the coffee mill is adjustable for different grades of grinding and that the coffee is not heated during grinding. Electric blade grinders, which slice the beans with blades rotating at high speeds, can make the powder much too hot, which is bad for the coffee taste.
These grinders are heavy duty, handcrafted pieces built to last! Each one is an individual creation! The great thing about real hardwood, is that it gets better looking over time! If you are looking for quality, not price, these are the grinders you want. They make a beautiful addition to anyone's kitchen and it is sure to become a family heirloom.
