To a coffee lover freshly ground beans have the greatest attraction. The fragrance itself can make you long for a cup of the brew so earnestly. However, the charm decreases significantly if the beans are pre-ground since the electric grinders are not only too noisy but they heat the coffee beans beyond the ideal limit. No doubt an antique coffee grinder would be the right alternative here.

Circa 1905 in Connecticut the Parker Coffee mill was created and that coffee grinder of the beginning of the twentieth century keeps alive the tradition today. On the top of it is a bronze finish while its shape leaves one spellbound.
