We then started a massive (and massively frustrating) search online for the best quality burr grinder which could grind small enough for espresso and even turkish coffee. When we came upon Zassenhaus I just had a really good feeling about it.
Not only is it straightaway the most beautiful grinder on the market, it basically will never break, and if it does there is a 25-year guarantee on the grinding mechanism! Where else are you going to get that kind of deal?
We've had it for about six months now and it still works great. It grinds our espresso perfectly and it's easy to adjust for more humid or dry days. It's not super loud but it's also not whisper quiet. The thing I love about it is that the sound is almost pleasant, it's an organic bean-crushing sound, not a metal-on metal squeaking or grating sound. The grinding mechanism isn't grinding on my ears, basically. After having to listen to the death-cry of the Mr. Coffee one for so long, it was a welcome relief.
People have talked about it giving you a workout, and I just want to clarify, it's not a workout because it's hard to use, or it's hard to grind the beans. It's just that depending on how fine you've set the grind you have like 10 turns per bean and if you're doing that as fast as you can (Which I do, desperate for coffee) then your arm can get tired. Usually I'm grinding for maybe three minutes total for enough grind for one full filter. It's really not that bad, so don't let that deter you. It's also called a "knee-mill" because you're supposed to hold it between your knees. My husband and I have never ever been able to use it well that way. We don't worry about it though, it's small enough to hold with your mitts like any other primate.
If you're looking for a world-class grinder which can really set your espresso aright this is your (little) man.
I have had a few grinders and I wrote a well-read and respected review of the Peugeot Nostalgie a few years ago. That WAS my go-to grinder. Not anymore.
I bought this grinder not because I was dissatisfied with the Peugeot, but because I was A. Curious; and B. looking for a grinder for work. I couldn't afford another Nostalgie since they sell for about $125 to $175 (and even ridiculously more). The Zass was selling for $120, but this one from Kochenprofi was listed as "one left" for $75. I didn't hesitate even though the first review of this said "worthless tat." Even used Zasses go for a lot on a certain auction site.
Compared to the expensive Peugeot, this grinder has eight distinct advantages:
1) It's cheaper;
2) It grinds faster;
3) it grinds with less effort (almost none, really);
4) it is made with higher quality materials with better finishes;
5) it is absurdly easy to adjust;
6) it is quiet;
7) the feed mechanism is better;
8) higher capacity drawer with better shape.
Even at $95, it's about $40 to $70 less than the Peugeot. When I grind the beans, the overall experience is much more efficient than with the Peugeot. The large capacity drawer fills rapidly and the beans slide down the feed into the burr with no effort. Normally, the Peugeot requires me to shake it in order to keep the beans moving down. Recently, I have been using really fresh beans that are covered with oil. These get stuck in my Peugeot and I have to push them down with my finger. In the Zass, they just keep right on sliding down no problem. The grinds are totally uniform and the drawer is HUGE compared to other grinders--it is also long and narrow, which makes it easy to fill my single-serving French press--I can just dump the grinds. If I need to adjust the size of the grind for a different coffee maker, I just turn the adjustment wheel. Other grinders have a notched index that requires disassembly to reset or to adjust. Also, all the parts of the Zass appear to be made of nice thick metals that are heavily finished. This one is chrome and it's a mirror finish that is impervious to moisture. All in all, the fit is better, too--there is no play or lumpiness of feeling when turning the handle. It's just so smooth and quiet in operation that I may bring the Peugeot to work and the Zass home so that my wife complains less about me waking her up when I grind coffee in the morning.
The one drawback might be, as I've read from other reviews elsewhere, is that the ease of adjustment also means that the grind setting doesn't lock like it does in grinders of other designs, like the Peugeot. Some people complain of having to readjust the grind mechanism halfway through a grind. Mine is new and I haven't had this experience.
Overall, this grinder kills my previously-reviewed Peugeot Nostalgie. I amost feel like going back and removing a star from my review of that grinder, but it's a great grinder, too.
