There is a certain satisfaction that comes from doing something with your hands, using timeless tools and methods from previous eras. Especially in our digital times, doing something manually allows us to connect with a part of ourselves that we have forgotten. And when it comes to something from a different culture, like the Saito Sekizaiten Stone Coffee Mill, it also gives us the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding. Oh, and there's an added value too: getting perfectly ground coffee beans!
Made in Akita Prefecture with stones and wood from the area and with techniques used for making mill stones for centuries, the Saito Sekizaiten Stone Coffee Mill offers you a unique experience by allowing you to grind the beans for your coffee as fine as you want them. Despite being made of two stones with a total weight of 6 kg (13.2 lb), the perfect shape and finish of the stones and the ergonomic positioning of the wooden handle that rotates the top one makes grinding easy, even if you are new to this process. And with a plate with a diameter of just 30 cm (13.2"), it won't take up too much of your space either!
