This is the only example of a coffee mill with this classically French pattern that I have ever seen, so I just had to buy it for you! Imagine this on you kitchen dresser.
I have tested it and it works, so it is practical as well as decorative. Connoisseurs insist on hand ground coffee and we use a hand moulin occasionally here at Le Manoir and the taste, I must admit, is better.
The Moulin has genuine age and bears the marks of its past life and use with pride.
