People say that coffee appeared in Europe in the years 1670 - 1680, however, a device for grinding coffee beans, appeared later. At first, coffee beans were broken in a mortar, and then stored in small leather pouches. Then, for grinding coffee beans used a spice mills. The idea of ​​constructing a special coffee grinder appeared in the eighteenth century. Because in those days coffee was very scarce resource, the first mills were created from pure silver or gold-plated silver. Many years later, when coffee became more available, they began to produce coffee grinders made ​​of iron, brass and wood.

The principle of operation of coffee grinder is very simple. Handle is usually placed on top and sets in motion the screw. This screw moves the metal, corrugated rings. Above the discs on the side or on top of a coffee grinder, is a hole where there are coffee beans. This hole may be open or covered with a lid. Ground coffee is poured through the neck, which is connected to a separate reservoir or a separate drawer. Everything depends on the idea and creativity of the people who constructed the device. Collections of old and antique coffee grinders, very often contain real "pearls", such as wood from iron or copper with fittings. Electric grinders became popular since 1957. During the first three months of their introduction, they have been sold over three million items! Unfortunately, many of us forget about coffee grinders. Very often on the shelves are available mainly vacuum-packed ground coffee. But the taste of brewed coffee it isn't comparable with that what we can get from freshly ground beans. It is worth remembering that modern coffee grinders, grinding grains allow for different thickness (depending on how the coffee would be brewed), and also to adjust the appropriate amount (for 1, 2, 3 people).
