This grinder is new, but the heads of the screws that hold the top plate in place are stripped. This doesn't affect the grinding at all but it might make it hard to take it apart if you need to for some reason.
The Zassenhaus knee mill is a hand-powered grinder featuring the same grinding mechanism as the Box mill with an obvious improvement: the narrower profile and indentations in the side allow you to hold the grinder between your knees while sitting. This is handy when you grinding at a fine setting, when there is more resistance.This model is narrower than the Box Mill but has more depth; the drawer holds enough coffee for a 6 cup pot. The beans enter the mill through a spring-loaded rectangular door on the top of the mill.
A bonus on this mill is that the upper bean hopper is lined with a white porcelain or porcelain-like material. Like the other Zassenhaus mills, the fineness of the grind is set by turning a knurled nut on the handle shaft. It creates wonderfully consistent grinds for all methods of brewing.Mahogany features gold-toned hardware. Beech finish has chrome hardware. 3.5" w x 5.5"l x 8"h See our FAQ on Zassenhaus mills for more information.
This is the old-style large grid drum. Very small beans (like peaberries) may fall through the mesh, but there will be less chaff caught in the drum. Losing a few beans is not a huge issue. Just make sure to clear them out of your chaf tray before your next roast to avoid a roaster fire. This drum has 10 wires in 2 inches, or just less than 5 wires per inch.

The BonaVita Porcelain Immersion Filtercone is a porcelain dripper with a switch-operated stopper at the bottom. The base is plastic (clamped to the porcelain with screws) and the stopper is silicone. It's dishwasher-safe. If the coffee mug or cup you are brewing into has a minimum opening diameter between 2.5" and 3.75", then this filtercone will perch on it just fine.
It uses #4 filters and brews about 16 oz of brewed coffee.Learn More

These kettles are great for cupping sessions, and daily coffee brewing. They are remarkably fast at bringing the water to near boil temperature...perfect for French Press brewing or pour-over type brewing. The heating speed is due to an oversized stainless steel heating coil in the carafe. Once the water is ready to go, you have the convenience of the cordless feature. Well...there is a cord but the carafe separates from the base for service.Learn More
