This is the Green Colored model of our Italian Hand-Cranked “Burr Style” Coffee Grinder. Made of cast iron with a beechwood base, it’s heavy enough to stay anchored while you grind. The beans fit in the reservoir at the top and a spring-tab mechanism allows you to adjust the coarseness of your grind. Turning the large wheel hand-crank produces high torque at low speed. A cone-configuration of tempered steel teeth crush the beans. When they reach the proper size, your ground coffee falls into a wooden drawer at the bottom. Expensive for sure but very special. Weighs 12 lbs., Dimensions: 13" x 8½" x 8"
