For Coffee?  Not a clue, but wouldn't be my choice for that.
If for grain, they are favorably reviewed.  I've been between buying 
it and the "Country Living Mill" as hand cranked complements to my 
Nutrimill.   The Diamant appears to be a better mill than the Country 
Living, but is twice the price.  I have read that the Diamant uses a 
sleeve bearing, which isn't as nice as the (roller?) bearings in the 
Country Living, but perhaps easier to fabricate a repair for if 
you're having survivalist thoughts.  If the CL weren't aluminum I 
would buy it, if the Diamant weren't so expensive I would buy it.  So 
I just keep making flour with my Nutrimill and reading the Lehmans 
catalog or the Pleasant Hill Grain web site.
Maybe I'll convert my Super Jolly to hand cranked, with a pulley for 
use with a tractor PTO so I can grind coffee when the world ends. 
Now where can I get a methane fueled espresso machine?
