This grinder was lightly used, but still works well. There is some normal wear on the brass.
The Zassenhaus Turkish Mill is the essential "mill for the road" in the original Nomadic spirit of Arabic coffee; roasted, ground and brewed in one sitting by merchants and traders. All coffee instruments were compact, folded into saddlebags, and were no less than sacred!
The Zassenhaus Turkish Mill is a relatively recent discovery for me. I had heard that Zassenhaus used to make Turkish style mills 20 years ago, but had seen no recent examples. I desperately wanted to stock a Turkish mill, but the quality of 99% of the ones out is absolute crud. Then I found someone who was offering these coffee mills to top-notch restaurants and gourmets as "the ultimate pepper mill". It certainly is, because inside are chromed tool grade steel Zassenhaus burrs!
The handle and knob are solid cast brass. The sides are solid brass with decorative traditional scroll designs. It holds enough coffee for a 4-6 cup brew. The grind is adjustable for anything for Filter Drip and finer. Not cheap but you will have it for a lifetime. Height without handle is 7 inches, diameter is 1.75 inches See our FAQ on Zassenhaus mills for more information.
