Birchleaf Coffee Grinder

Postby cmorgan » Thu Aug 03, 2006 10:01 pm

Found this on ebay;

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BIRCHLEAF-LARGE-C ... dZViewItem

Looks really unusual but is it any good. Anyone had any actual experience of this grinder?

Any advice welcome.

No idea how well it functions but it is stunning aesthetically.

Very pretty indeed... erhm... you may want to have this moved to the Clubroom though... especially if you're intending to bid on it ;)

Thanks bean believer. :D I did think about that but am more interested in views as to its performance as a grinder which I am more likely to get in open forum. Have been watching grinders on ebay generally for a while now and have seen the Birchleaf coming up on a regular basis, so it probably won't be the last I'll see if I miss this one. I am prepared to be patient.

Not even sure I will bid at all yet.
