An Overview On Coffee Grinders

Review Melt Fun Fact

It may seem like perfectly grinding coffee beans is a modern convenience. But that’s not the case. In fact, coffee grinders have a long and curious past.

The very first coffee grinders were primitive. Ancient coffee lovers had to use stones to grind their coffee beans. It wasn’t until the 15th century, that people began using the spice grinder instead of stones. They could grind coffee much finer than rocky predecessors. It sufficed for a couple more centuries before people got inventive.

In the late 17th century, Nicholas Book invented the earliest coffee mill.

 

More coffee mill variations soon followed and by the end of the 19th century, most homes in Europe and the u.s. had a coffee grinder. By that time, the technology was essentially perfected.
