Topic: Turkish Zass for espresso? (3 msgs / 83 lines)
1) From: hazzmat
I've heard that the Zassenhaus Turkish Coffee grinder should not be used 
for espresso. (maybe the range of adjustment is such that it's uneven at 
the espresso level of fineness or cannot be opened up coarse enough for 
espresso) I don't know what the objection is supposed to be.
Any ideas? Anyone with experience with the "Turkish" grinder and espresso?
Thanks.

When I'm down at my Mom's in FL and making espresso on a Cafe Presso,  
that's what I use to grind. Works pretty well.

I don't know if it's that if "should not" be used versus more like it would
take for ever! Occasional use traveling maybe, definitely not suited for day
to day espresso use. Takes much longer than the bigger Zass's. I've had a
Zass Turkish for a few years, using for travel with press pot. (It's
marginal for that job.) At coarser for press pot takes longer to grind for
short 32oz press pot than to heat the water. (Basically upper chamber filled
heaping with beans so it's hard to put top on without spilling beans) And
the finer the grind the longer it takes. Since it's designed for super fine
Turkish coffee, should not be a problem grinding fine enough for espresso
but have not tried.
