Manual Cast Iron Coffee Bean Grinder with Drawer - available from Amazon

I'm going through some 'draft' files this morning and saw this one in which I was apparently going to review and link to at some point in the past year but totally forgot about.  As I started to just hit delete (because I have this 'thing' about having draft posts clogging up my files and feel this overwhelming urge to purge, purge, purge!) I though; eh, just post it.  Maybe someone is looking for a manual cast iron coffee bean grinder.

I use my manual coffee grinder daily. It's not this one, but this one actually looks more sturdy and heavier than mine.  I like to use k-cups but there is a level of guilt about using them since I drink a lot of coffee!  Not only the cost (ouch!) but the little cups are filling our landfills. I allow myself a couple k-cups a day and then switch to grinding my own coffee beans and making it manually.

I have to admit, I also love the whole 'experience' of using a manual grinder.
There is something fulfilling about pouring in the beans, grinding them yourself... the aroma of the freshly ground beans is incredible.  I use them for a pour-over method of coffee brewing so I watch the hot water going over the ground coffee beans, take a deep breath - smells so good!  Then, raising the cup of coffee to my lips I inhale another breath of the freshly ground and brewed coffee before finally sipping.  OH.... it's good.  It's very good.





This is NOT my product description - it's a little hokey and cheesy (reminds me of a used car salesman) but it's how the seller listed their product so, eh. Enjoy it on that level if you can. I found through Amazon of course.
