When the electricity goes off or you're camping without power, this is the way to grind your coffee beans. This manual coffee mill is made by Peugeot, the king of grinding mechanisms, which has been manufacturing quality products since 1842. Renown also for the grinding mechanism in theiir pepper mills, individual grooves cut into the case hardened metal give these mills their strength and durability. Hence, the lifetime guarantee on the mechanism.
The dark rich walnut stained wood box measures 6" x 5" x 8-1/2" (including the stainless steel top with the wooden knobbed handle).
To operate, pour beans into the open stainless steel top. Turn the adjusting knob counterclockwise for coarsely ground coffee -- French press. Turn the knob clockwise for a finer grind -- espresso or Turkish ground. Add a little elbow grease to grind the beans, and pull the bottom drawer open to collect the grinds.
"Peugeot Freres" is imprinted on a decorative plaque on the front face of the mill, along with the Peugeot logo. The coffee grinder comes with a 2-year quarantee from date of purchase. The grinding mechanism comes with a lifetime guarantee.
